  • Summary

    The Thinkware X550 is a high end 1-channel/2-channel dashcam offering front and rear Full HD video recording and a compact 2.7" LCD screen. The video quality is one of the best in the 2-channel market as it uses the Ambarella A7 chipset and Sony Exmor CMOS sensors with a number of firmware refinements such as super night vision mode. Built-in GPS on the X550 not only logs speed and location but allows for advanced driver safety systems (LDWS, FCWS, and Safety Camera Alerts). The X550 differs from the F770 as it offers an LCD screen instead of WiFi connectivity, this allows for quicker live-view and settings changes over traditional WiFi enabled cameras but with a slightly bulkier design. With the new dark grey design and adhesive mount, the X550 has a relatively discreet design for a LCD screen device and packs a lot of performance/features in a compact body. When paired with a hardwiring kit or Cellink Battery B, the Thinkware devices can take advantage of parking mode recording which protects your vehicle from hit and runs, theft, and vandalism. If you already have the hardwiring kit or the Cellink battery, check out this article to find out how to connect them. The X550 takes parking mode to the next level, offering both motion detection and time lapse recording modes (Time Lapse captures everything at a 1 frame per second rate so nothing is missed). This is one of our favourite parking mode devices as power consumption is very low allowing for a longer parking mode recording time than comparable 2-Channel devices like the Blackvue DR650S-2CH.

    High Temperature Cut-Off

    The X550 is a great choice for high heat environments as it can cut off power to the camera when it exceeds 158*F to protect internal components and the micro SD card.

    Super Capacitor and Low-Power Consumption

    With a capacitor based power supply, the X550 operates safely in extreme temperatures. The low power consumption of 3.5W (2-channel) makes this one of the most efficient 2-channel parking mode cameras on the market which translates to longer recording time.

    Built-In G-Sensor and DUAL SAVE Technology

    Thinkware devices are our favourite dashcams for Mac users as the native formatting of 64GB and higher cards is plug and play on Mac OS X. There are dedicated PC and Mac Viewer programs as well to review footage and change settings
