North American version

The Thinkware X1000 is the North American-version of the Korean-specific QXD5000. The image quality is the same, but the X1000 is GPS module-compatible and supports Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) and speed/location tracking.

X1000 offers date and time data, but the system uses Korean UTC. The ability to set local time and date will be released via a firmware updated later this summer.

DriveX is a QXD5000-specific feature and is not available on the X1000.


Thinkware X1000 2K QHD Dual-Channel Dash Cam

Optimized 2K QHD Front and Rear

Both the front and rear cameras are fitted with the Sony STARVIS IMX335 5.14MP sensor to capture 156° of crystal clear video in 2K QHD at 30FPS.

The X1000 provides the best camera quality through lens optimization that accounts for tinted windows and the angle of the windshield. Distortion is corrected by Thinkware's Dewarp image processing technology.

Top Notch Quality with Super Night Vision 3.0

Integrated in the front lens is a blue filter that is found in flagship smartphone cameras. The blue filter adjusts the amount of light on the fly to ensure sharper, cleaner images in different light situations.

The X1000 night recording capabilities goes beyond the existing night vision technologies, and improves the noise reduction in low-light situations compared to previous Thinkware models.

Ultra Low Power Parking Mode

By only providing minimal power to essential components while in Parking Surveillance mode, Thinkware’s proprietary Energy Saving 2.0 technology allows the X1000 to remain on standby for about 576 hours*, or 24 days, while the vehicle’s ignition is off.

Free Thinkware Hardwiring Kit included to unlock parking surveillance out-of-the-box.

*Based on Thinkware's BAB-50 Dash Cam Battery Pack.

*Optional GPS antenna required for ADAS and Driving Data Tracking.
**X1000 offers date and time data, but the system uses Korean UTC. The ability to set local time and date will be released via a firmware updated later this summer.

Road Safety with Audible Alerts

Along with the optional GPS antenna, the X1000 offers a suite of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features, including:

  • Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
  • Front Collision Warning System (FCWS)
  • Urban Front Collision Warning System (uFCWS)
  • Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW)

With the optional GPS Antenna, the X1000 can also record your vehicle’s driving speed and provide its precise location and routes identification on the map - this feature not only provides comprehensive driving data in case of an accident, but it can also be used to track your holiday travel routes.

Thinkware DriveX is a QXD5000-specific feature and is not available on the X1000.

Pristine Playback on IPS LCD Touchscreen

The X1000 features an IPS panel to view your video footage with accurate colors from any viewing angle in no matter the time of day.

Alternatively, you can use the free Thinkware Desktop Viewer to playback the saved footage on your microSD Card.

Thinkware X1000

Living in Canada, I noticed a good portion of recorded events occurred when it was dark. Due to to the limited night vision performance and resolution of my previous camera (Thinkware F70), I was missing a lot of important details in my footage.

The X1000 is a significant upgrade from the F70, and at the price point, it should be at the top of your shortlist. The sharp 2K resolution and low light performance is a must have. Initially, I was frustrated with the mandatory inclusion of the rear camera; however, I’m now wondering how I’ve gone so long without one. The added security means that I don’t have to back into parking spaces to catch potential hit and runs, and it also adds a bit of comfort when it come to aggressive drivers. The 2K resolution of a rear camera isn’t typical, and it’s huge bonus to have with this unit.

The IPS LCD touchscreen is a delight to use, it’s very responsive and easy to read. The UI is very well designed, and it will probably make you wish Thinkware designed your vehicle’s infotainment system too. However, I don’t understand the need for a screen on a dash cam. It’s useful for framing your cameras and quickly modifying settings during setup, but you likely won’t want to review footage on the device. If you have it hardwired, the viewing angle will be too uncomfortable, especially if it’s mounted behind your mirror. It’s nice-to-have, but not absolutely necessary.

I’m surprised this unit doesn’t include wireless connectivity, but I think that’s reflected in the price. I’ve used a BlackVue product that offered this feature and it was never as smooth as it should have been. One workaround for viewing footage on your iPhone is to buy an SD card-to-lightning adapter and keep it in your car. If you’re in a pinch and need footage quickly, you can still get it. It might not be as convenient as using WiFi, but at least you don’t need a dedicated app and a stable connection.

One other downside to this unit is the size. It’s not very discreet, but it also doesn’t standout. It seems most people have some sort of gadget permanently mounted to their dash/windshield these days, so this unit doesn’t catch too much attention. You can also turn off the recording LED’s, which is easily found in the menu.

Overall, this camera offers excellent value for what it provides. The only other camera you should consider from Thinkware is the U1000, but be aware that it’s now over three years old. If you can live without the built-in GPS, WiFi and remote viewing, this camera should be the one for you.

Thanks to Terence for the help with choosing CPL filters.
