FAQ

What is a dash cam?

A dash cam stands for a dashboard camera that is mounted inside the vehicle, usually on the front windshield. A dash cam, depending on the model, can do many things such as record both when the vehicle is being driven and when it’s parked, record audio, provide a connection to a smartphone app so that video can be reviewed and saved on the spot, etc.

What is an IR dash cam?

An IR dash cam is a dash cam with infrared lights that provide recording details under poorly-lit conditions, as well as total darkness. These are dual-channel dash cam setups with a regular front-facing unit and a secondary unit that comes with infrared lights.

The secondary unit is typically mounted to face and record the interior of the vehicle, and thus is especially recommended for rideshare users, such as for Uber and Lyft, or for commercial use, such as fleet managers.

Why buy a premium dash cam?

There are a few reasons as to why this is the case, and these reasons make a huge difference. Learn more about premium features including design, parking mode, smartphone integration, 4K UHD video resolution, g-force, ADAS, memory card storage and more.

What is parking mode?

Parking mode recording is a feature of a dash cam that keeps your dash cam recording footage even when the vehicle is off. Typically found only in premium dash cams, parking mode provides around-the-clock protection and surveillance for the vehicle.

What is Wi-Fi & GPS?

The wi-fi feature in a dash cam is what allows a smartphone to be paired to the dash cams. Unlike a regular wi-fi network signal that gives you internet access, the purpose here is just to connect the dash cam and smartphone together.

The GPS feature in a dash cam shows the vehicle’s speed and, for some models, the location of the vehicle with Google Maps integration.

Great Camera Overall

I wanted to write a little longer review since most of the ones I have seen so far are one to two lines. I have had the camera for a few weeks after a hickup with Fedex. The blackboxmycar team was quick to respond and help with that issue. The customer service is why this is the 4th or 5th dash cam I have purchased from this site. Up until now I have stuck with blackvue.
As to the dashcam itself most of what I have to compare with is the blackvue cameras I have owned so keep this in mind:

Pros:
Camera install went well. The camera wire was long enough for my Camry to get to the rear windshield. Took about an hour but most of that time was removing the old camera and prepping/cleaning the area where the cameras would be installed. I took my time to try and get the cleanest install without wires everywhere. The app was great for aligning the camera right where it needs to be. The camera worked well from the start. It starts up immediately and shuts down just as fast when I turn the key off (my DC outlet does not stay on all the time, which is fine for me). I opted for now to not install the hardwire kit, although that was included which I liked. The footage is very clear and unlike the blackvue I replaced, there is no buggy program to view the footage. There are just folders with video files. I had no issue playing back the video without any special programs not already on Windows. The best part about this camera is definitely the quality of the video footage itself. The picture is crystal clear. I played it back on my 4k tv (using it as a wireless display) and it looks like real 4k images. No issue reading plates, making out street signs, or seeing faces of people I pass. Definitely will come in handy in the event of an accident or incident where the footage is needed later. Also a plus over blackvue is that there is nothing to remove to get the micro sd card out. You have to unplug a wire on the blackvue and pop off a side cover. On the thinkware it is right there on the right side. I used a Samsung 128gb micro sd. So far, no issues there. The app works pretty well, and the download speed over the wifi is very quick. You may have to go into your wifi settings to get connected. I recommend either turning the wifi on your phone off when in the vehicle or telling your phone not to auto-connect to the camera wifi if you plan to stream music while driving.
Cons:
The voice feature is very long and very loud. Despite adjusting it to the lowest volume setting, I found this quite annoying to tell me everything the camera is doing. "Connecting to wifi. Connecting to GPS, Starting Recording..." Just tell me that it is recording. That's all I need to know. I turned it off. I did not turn on any of the other features like lane departure and forward collision warning because of the various reviews saying this is annoying as well. Finally, I bought a camera with GPS in it. Although this does track your speed, it is very tiny at the bottom left corner and I have not found a way to increase the size. There is an option to turn it off if you don't want it or to change between MPH and KPH. I think this is something thinkware could probably adjust in a software update in the future.

Overall- despite a few downsides I do recommend this camera. The video quality alone makes it worth the 5 stars and the price tag.

Great Quality for the Money

Easy to use and amazing quality, plan on getting a Blackvue DR900X on my other car soon so curious to see how they compare, but for the money you can't go wrong with the Thinkware U1000

Works perfectly with my 2022 Lexus es300 hybrid and OBD-II power adapter.

The included 32Gb microSD card records just over 2 hours. I recommend a 128Gb (max it can use) for trips longer than 4 or 5 hours. The Viewer needs a wide screen, 4k monitor and fast processor to make the most out of the reviewing experience. Also, a USB 3.0+ adapter and available port on your computer to keep the video and data running smoothly.
