Sleek Thinkware Design

The U1000 benefits from a sleek Thinkware design. The front facing view of the camera is very narrow, measuring just 6.5cm. This allows the device to be placed more easily in the vehicle without trailing cables or causing an obstruction of driving view.

The length and height of the camera are 11cm and 3.6cm respectively. Generally the dashcam is placed behind the rear view mirror and can only be seen if sitting in the passenger seat.  

U1000 Dash Cam Options

This dash cam comes with two different options. Choose from a single front facing 4K camera with 32GB SD card or from a front 4K with rear 2K with 64GB SD Card. The extra space on the card, is required to give extra room for the two camera inputs. Without this larger memory space footage could be overwritten as the dash cam continues to record.

Increased Image Quality

The Thinkware U1000 is all about the increase in image quality. The 4K camera gives 2160p or 3840 x 2160 pixels and is a higher resolution than Full HD (1920 x 1080) and QHD (2560 x 1440).

Please remember that most other cameras in the Thinkware range are usually FHD with the Q800 Pro being QHD.

The increased quality makes footage clearer with numberplates and faces easier to see.

Free Downloadable Cloud App

This camera is designed to work with the free downloadable Thinkware Cloud App. Once downloaded from the Apple App Store or Android Play Store customers can connect to the camera.

The Cloud App comes to life if a customer is sitting in the vehicle, with the engine running and the App open on their phone. Here view live data and retrieve video snippets directly to your phone. For more information on how to use this App please see the Thinkware F800 Pro page.

This App is does not give access if the phone is not in close range, for a dashcam with true cloud remote access the Thinkware T700 LTE is available. This camera has it’s own SIM card and allows images to be viewed remotely through the Vodafone network.

Continuous Recording

Continous Recording
Thinkware Continous Recording

When you start the engine the camera automatically starts recording. The message “continuous recording will now start” will be said from the camera after a delay of 10 seconds.

Now video is recorded continuously and stored in 1-minuit segments on the SD card. When the SD card runs out of space the first minute is overwritten and so on. This provided a looping structure that means the latest video segments are preserved.

U1000 Incident Recording

The U1000 has an impact sensor that automatically records should a shock to the vehicle occur. The 3-axis G-Sensor remains active even when the vehicle and dashcam are not in use.

Once an impact is detected the camera will store 20 seconds of footage. This means that 10 seconds before the event and 10 seconds after the event are saved. The saved file is put into a separate folder on the SD Card, ensuring that footage is not overwritten by subsequent continuous data.

These files can be manually deleted by using the Cloud App to preserve space on the SD Card.

Manual recording can be used by pushing the red ‘REC’ button on the underside of the camera. This is ideal if sitting in the vehicle without the engine running and you decide to record something quickly.

The U100 energy saving feature works with he impact detection. This ensures the device goes to sleep within a second of finishing the impact recording to save energy.

Safety Camera Alerts

This Dashcam comes with a safety camera alert feature. The internal GPS of the dashcam compares details of where fixed cameras are located to the Thinkware database. The dashcam will give an audible warning of locations and the speed limit of the road at these points.

Should you find this function annoying then it can be turned off using the App. This may be the case if you travel the same road each day and know the speed limits already.

Thinkware Parking Surveillance Mode

Parking Surveillance mode provides automatic protection when the car engine is off. The camera records at a 2 frames-per-second rate taking up less space on the SD Card.

When using this function we recommend customers use a higher capacity Thinkware SD card. This avoids data being overwritten.

We also recommend that if this function is intended to be used that a battery backup is also fitted. This avoids the car battery being depleted.

Optional Radar Module

The optional radar module will extend parking mode. This device does not wait for an impact to happen before it starts recording. It detects close movement and is much more efficient system.
