If you want a budget security dash camera for your motorcycle, the Blueskysea DV988 can do the job with its parking mode function - although it also gives you a high risk of theft as you will have to leave the unit in plain sight. We also know that motorcycle batteries are small, so activating the parking mode is not really a good idea.
In terms of storage - don’t be fooled. While the Blueskysea DV988 supports larger SD cards, the storage capacity of the SD card is fixed at 69% for normal videos, 30% for emergency videos, and 1% for photos. So, for a 128GB microSD card, you’re technically limited to just 88GB for normal driving footage.
And the Thinkware M1 has an exact solution for that concern - its Memory Partitioning feature. Aside from ensuring that you have enough storage space, the M1 also guarantees clearer footage with its Image Stabilization.
So if you want to record great quality footage, or have a reliable dash cam that will record your ride - in both relaxing and extreme environments? The Thinkware M1 is what you need.
There. We mentioned reliability because it is an important consideration before purchasing a dash cam or any other product that you will use on a daily basis. Unfortunately, it is also the most common source of complaints about the DV988.
A bunch of the reviews we've seen on the Blueskysea are about its durability and lifespan. It's unfortunate that these complaints did not come from just one, two, or three customers. Some people were able to use the DV988 for months, weeks, or even hours, while others received a defective unit right out of the box. What’s worse is that, since it's being shipped from China and is mostly available online, other customers had no choice but to spend again for the shipping and returns.
This is not the type of experience we want you to have, and obviously, this is not something that Thinkware would allow you to go through. Thinkware has been an established brand in manufacturing car and motorcycle surveillance devices - and we’re confident that its decades of experience in engineering premium dash cams have already satisfied thousands of customers worldwide.
In terms of image quality, weather and temperature resistance, connectivity, and dependability, the Thinkware M1 is unquestionably the superior choice. Sure, it costs a little more than the Blueskysea, but the dash cam's performance and long-term usability are guaranteed.
Furthermore, Thinkware is widely available in the market, so whatever experience you have with this dash cam, there is always a team of experts available to ensure that your ownership experience is worth it.
