The U1000 supports several parking mode options, including the Energy Saving 2.0, Time-lapse, and Buffered Parking Mode. But what makes an already-powerful parking mode even better is the RADAR Sensor.
The RADAR Sensor is an optional radar module that you can purchase separately and hook it up to your U1000 setup. The radar module is designed to enhance the U1000’s Energy Saving Mode with buffered recording, something that is an “either-or” previously.
So, instead of relying on the U1000’s own built-in motion detectors, you will be using the RADAR module’s ultra-high-frequency radar detection technology. You will still get a 20-second footage clip, but instead of post-incident, you will get a 10-second pre- and 10-seconds post-incident, in other words, “buffered” footage. The RADAR also allows your dash cam to stay “asleep” longer, which significantly conserves power usage, giving you a true energy-saving performance. Pair it with the Cellink NEO battery pack or the Thinkware iVOLT BAB-50, to extend the parking mode run-time up to 170 hours - that’s 7 days!
Note that the RADAR Sensor only covers the front of the vehicle, and we have had viewers asking for all-around RADAR coverage. While the option to add a RADAR Sensor to the rear camera is currently unavailable, it makes perfect sense for it and we are working with Thinkware on this, so we have our fingers crossed!
