Easy to use
Posted by: nittanyatl from: on
This is my first dash cam and have had it for 3 weeks. It's a small device so it can be installed out of sight right behind the rear view mirror,. I like the adhesive approach for a dashcam -- saves the hassle of needing to put the suction cup up every time and it doesn't fall off. It comes with a long wired charger to the wire can be run inconspicuously from camera to outlet.
Picture quality is sufficient for the intended purpose. Night video is what you would expect when it's dark -- it sees what you see but doesn't work any magic. One feature I wish this had was the option to turn off sound recording. Don't really want to record conversations in the car.
The camera records a series of time stamped one minute videos. The video player software automatically plays the video continuously. Of course, hopefully I'll never need to look at the video beyond the initial curiosity after purchasing.

Awesome, Simple Camera
Posted by: JayD9 from: on
I did a fair amount of research when selecting a dashcam. I've read that Thinkware rates as one of the better, more reliable brands compared to other dashcam offerings. I was debating a higher priced unit but couldn't justify the likelihood of it either being stolen or damaged somehow... so at $80.00 on sale... this was a steal to get.
The camera is very easy to install. The product itself feels cheap and doesn't inspire confidence but once installed you quickly appreciate it's sleek, minimalistic profile and robust mounting clips. Video clips are clear but lets be honest... you're not going to be able to read license plates or see distinguishing features easily depending on your speed and time of day. The impact sensor will sound two beeps if it thinks an event occurred that you'll want to review and upon startup, the camera tells you verbally that it's on and is recording. If I had to buy another camera, I would buy this one again considering the value of camera and safety advantages compared to other, lower priced or no name brand units. If you are a commercial delivery driver you may want to consider one of the more robust units for better picture quality and more advanced FCW, LDW features.

Great Dash Cam
Posted by: dsbryant from: on
I have had it for about 3 weeks and I love it. I hardwired mine in. I live in New Orleans and temperatures can get pretty obnoxious. So far it has handled the extreme hot weather.

I chose this because it was MAC friendly. I set the brightness to max to improve the night vision. Works fine on a brightly lighted street, on the hiway, you only see what your headlights see. Setting the brightness higher did not effect the daytime recording. It does not look bleached out. I reviewed this on YouTube, and it works as described.

Nice camera with slim profile
Posted by: daocubus from: on
I really like the small size of this dash cam. I've had it for about month and haven't had any issues with it so far. It's placed right behind my rearview mirror and is hidden from my sight. The device powers on each time I turn on the ignition. I don't even have to think about it. Great product.

Great quality and easy to use
Posted by: daud from: on
Purchased the camera before going on a trip. It works exactly as expected, was easy to install and and produces great quality images. Configuring the camera's options, or updating its firmware, require loading its microSD on your PC and running the supplied program. It came with an 8GB SD, but I installed a 64GB card for additional storage.

Does a good job ,specially with daylight. Not so good during the night, but it works anyway. Careful with the sticker, the installing process could be complicated.

This unit is ok. It beeps every time you hit a bump in the road. So driving through all of the construction on the highways, it beeps quite a lot, which is very annoying.

This is a Great affordable camera for around town. The camera will provide clear video evidence, if and or when our vehicle is in an accident, more effectively documenting fault. Out Farmers insurance is very supportive of dash cam use. It does not include GPS information.

Good dash cam
Posted by: vicamed from: Flagstaff, AZ on
This is a pretty decent dash cam specially for the price. I like the size a lot because it doesn't interfere with your view. My only criticism is that you have to purchase a second or more mounts to be able to use it in other cars. It would have been better if you can just transfer the unit from car to car.
