The U1000 is the latest release from Thinkware and is the highest quality dash camera currently on the market.
The recording quality of the Thinkware U1000 is unparalleled. The front camera boasts 4K Ultra HD quality, while the rear camera records at 2K Quad HD, both at 30fps. This makes the Thinkware U1000 the highest quality recording front and rear dash camera system available.
Along with the outstanding video quality, the U1000 has an impressive 150-degree wide-angle lens to provide a comprehensive view of any incident that does take place. Additionally, the Thinkware U1000 also boasts ‘Super Night Vision 2.0’ and a host of image processing features that ensures the video footage captures is as clear as possible in any situation, day or night.
The Thinkware U1000 utilises 4 different recording modes and will automatically switch between them based on what is happening around the vehicle.
Continuous Recording Mode – Continuous recording is active the moment your ignition is switched on. Recordings will be automatically saved in 1-minute segments and the oldest files will be automatically overwritten.
Incident Recording Mode – Incident recording is activated through the active impact monitoring system within the camera. Any detected impact will trigger video from 10 seconds before and after the impact to be saved in a safe file which will not be overwritten.
Manual Recording Mode – Manual recording allows you to manually save important footage through the record button on the back of the dash cam. This saved footage will not be automatically overwritten.
Energy Saving Mode (Parking Mode) – In energy saving mode, the dash cam will switch off recording while still monitoring for impact. When impact is detected by the built-in G-sensor, the U1000 will start recording for the next 20 seconds and save this footage.
The Thinkware U1000 has a variety of built-in features as standard that makes this camera great value for money.
Wi-Fi- You can connect your WI-Fi enabled mobile device to the camera, allowing you to playback and download previously recorded video footage and change any camera settings. This makes finding and retrieving any required videos quick and easy.
GPS- With the built-in GPS, you are able to have the option to display your vehicles speed and location information on the video footage, providing crucial court admissible evidence if an incident does occur. When the camera has GPS signal, the U1000’s wide range of safety camera and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) can also be utilized.
The Thinkware U1000 uses the built-in GPS for various different driver safety systems. These are optional, and can be enabled/disabled through the app or computer software.
Speed Camera Warning Systems will provide an audible and visible alert when approaching a fixed speed or red light camera, when in a mobile speed camera hotspot, or in an average speed check zone.
Road Safety Warning Systems will provide audible and visible alerts to potentially dangerous situations such as lane departure and stationary vehicles.
Cloud functionality greatly improves the usability and functionality of the Thinkware U1000.
The Thinkware Cloud app provides quick access to your dash cam without the need to be close by. You can download footage straight onto your phone, share to social media, and manage the dash cameras settings.
The cloud allows you to live view the real-time recordings on your dash cam to monitor your vehicle no matter where you are. The vehicle location is updated every 10 seconds and is displayed along with the speed and direction of travel for easy tracking.
When impact is detected, the dash cam will automatically send a push notification alert of the impact to the user’s smartphone if logged into the cloud app. A 20 second video of the incident will also be saved onto the Thinkware Cloud server which can be reviewed at any time.
Another feature of the Thinkware Cloud is Geo-Fencing. This allows you to monitor a vehicles location – when it leaves/enters a certain area, a notification will be sent through the mobile app. This is extremely practical for parents, rental companies, and fleets using the Thinkware U1000.
The Geo-Fence locations can be set by typing an address or using the pinpoint map for an area of 100m to 600km.
