In the case of dash cams, whether for cars or for motorcycles, we all know that Thinkware is a more premium brand compared to VIOFO. Thinkware has been in the industry since 1997, and compared to VIOFO that launched its systems in 2011, Thinkware must have had a stronger reputation in manufacturing surveillance systems.
But that doesn’t mean that VIOFO isn’t something we would recommend. In fact, if you’re on a tight budget, choosing the MT1 is a good decision. After all, the features of the full HD video resolution, wide angle, Wi-Fi connectivity and water resistance are all enticing reasons to get this dash cam.
However, if you want a more solid built dash cam, the Thinkware M1 is the one. Whatever the MT1 has, the M1 also has - except for the fact that VIOFO has a larger storage capacity. But above that, Thinkware has an advanced feature called Memory Partitioning that is a total advantage in prolonging the space and lifespan of your SD cards.
In addition, while VIOFO only has a mobile app dedicated for the MT1, the Thinkware M1 has a mobile, plus a PC viewer - providing easier accessibility and convenience that is worth a few more bucks.
