New Release: The Thinkware Q800 PRO Dash Cam

Thinkware Q800 PRO Quad HD Dash Cam

Thinkware Q800 Pro 2 Channel Dash Camera Front and RearAs the latest release from Thinkware, the Q800 PRO instantly leads the pack with their best recording quality yet, along with a huge amount of features, and a modern, discreet design. The Thinkware Q800 PRO is available in both front and rear, or front only options.

 

Recording Quality

The Q800 PRO boasts the highest recording quality of any Thinkware camera yet. The front camera recording at a staggering 1440p Quad HD – 4X clearer image than regular HD – while the rear captures 1080p Full HD, both at 30 fps.

It has a 140° wide angle lens which ensures you capture the whole story of any accident, and is also equipped with super night vision 2.0 and advanced clear video technology which ensures captured footage is crystal clear for use in court or an insurance claim. This makes the Q800 PRO a serious contender as the best dash cam for both driving and parked recording purposes.

 

Design

The design of the Thinkware Q800 PRO is purposefully discreet, with a convenient adhesive pad mount, allowing it to sit neatly behind the rear view mirror, ensuring it is positioned legally and therefore won’t cause any distraction to you while driving. This design acts as a luxury addition to the interior of your car, rather than taking away from it, making the price all the more worth it.

 

Features

Video Quality – 

The video quality of the Q800 Pro is better than ever with the front camera capturing 1440p Quad HD, and the rear recording at 1080p Full HD, both at 30FPS. This is alongside super night vision 2.0, and advanced clear video technology.

Integrated WiFi And GPS – 

These are both key features for any high quality dash cam. The built-in WiFi allows a smart phone to connect to the camera through the downloadable app, in order to remotely review or download any important footage without having to remove the SD card and put it into a computer. You can also directly alter the camera settings, and view the live camera feed through the app. This drastically improves the useability and efficiency of the camera.

The built-in GPS antenna allows the vehicle speed, location, and direction of travel to be recorded. This can be crucial data when using your dash cam footage as evidence for an insurance claim.

Recording Modes –

The Thinkware Q800 PRO features 4 distinct recording modes which it will automatically switch between depending on what is happening around the vehicle. Most of the cameras time will be spent in continuous recording mode which will begin once your vehicles ignition is switched on. This will store recordings to the SD card in 1 minute clips until there is a shock/impact, or the ignition is switched off.

Event recording mode will automatically begin if shock or impact is detected around the vehicle. This will save a 20 second video file of the event into a separate section of the memory, preventing it from being overwritten by normal footage.

The third recording mode is manual recording, which is triggered when you press the rec button on the camera. This will save the footage taken around that time to the manual recording section of the memory, useful if you spot dangerous driving or road rage incidents.

The fourth mode is parking mode, which requires your dash cam to be hard-wired to the battery of your vehicle. Once the ignition is switched off your camera will automatically go into parking mode. The camera will then only save video files when it detects motion around, or impact to your vehicle. Alternatively, you can set it to time-lapse parking mode which will result in the camera recording at 2FPS for the duration of its parking mode.

Safety Alerts –

Driver safety is a top priority for Thinkware, clearly shown by the quality of the Q800’s optional speed camera alerts and driver safety warning system. If enabled, the camera will emit an audible alert to warn the driver of red lights, static and average speed cameras, along with mobile camera hotspot areas.

The driver safety warning system is now better than ever with the urban forward collision warning system (uFCWC) and front vehicle departure warnings (FVDW) being added, alongside the standard lane departure warning system (LDWS) and front collision warning system (FCWS) that the other Thinkware models have.

When the urban forward collision warning system is enabled, the Q800 will calculate the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. It will then issue a 3-level early warning to the driver depending on the danger of collision.

By enabling the front vehicle departure warning, your dash cam will inform you that the vehicle in front of you has started to move.

New Release: The Mio MiVue J60 Dash Cam

The New Mio MiVue J60

Mio MiVue J60 FrontMio has recently released their brand new dash camera model, the MiVue J60, which again presents incredible quality at a low price. With an array of features, and an emphasis on design and recording quality, it is bound to improve your overall driving experience.

Recording

Recording quality from the MiVue J60 is an impressive 1080p HD at 30fps, with a 150° wide angle lens, ensuring that every detail of your journey is covered with HD footage. Along with this, an F1.8 aperture lens allows more light to be picked up by the sensor, providing clearer and brighter recordings – even in low light conditions.

Design

The design of the Mio MiVue J60 is purposefully discreet, being small and simplistic allows it to be installed behind the vehicles rear-view mirror. Completely out of the drivers sight, meaning it causes no distraction whilst driving. Not only does this ensure that the dash cam is legally placed and distraction free, but it also reduces the risk of the camera being a target of theft. Overall, the quality of the design matches that of the recording.

Features

Integrated WiFi and GPS – A main feature of this new dash cam is the built-in WiFi and GPS tracking. The WiFi feature provides a connection between your phone and dash cam, meaning that using the iPhone and Android app, you can immediately download or share footage, and remotely update the firmware of the camera, and speed camera data. GPS tracking means that all speeDash cam computer applicationd and location data is logged for every journey made, ensuring you have all the details needed in the event of an accident or fine.

Driver Assistance – The camera has the ability to generate alerts and reminders to assist you in reaching your destination safely. These come in the form of voice warnings from the speaker of the camera. Speed Limit reminders are one of the things possible from this, along with warnings when you’re going over the speed limit. Another application of this is voice guidance telling you if you are beginning to drift from the centre of the lane. Some other warnings and reminders provided include a headlight reminder, lane change warning, and forward collision warning.

Parking Mode and G Sensor – Parking mode allows footage to be recorded while the vehicle is turned off by taking power from the battery of the vehicle. Sensor technology ensures that the battery is not damaged or drained by cutting off parking mode once the battery reaches 12V, so you will never have to worry about your dash cam affecting the cars battery. Being paired with a 3-Axis G sensor, any sudden movement around the vehicle is detected and automatically stores footage around this event. This ensures that valuable footage and evidence is always kept safe, rather than being overwritten.

For only £129.99, the Mio Vue J60 comes with everything you need to get started, making this an incredibly good option when you want a discreet, quality camera at a low price point.
