State of the Art Video Enhancements

Wide Dynamic Range (WDR)

Whether you’re driving under bright sunlight, heading out of a tunnel or getting under the shadow of a tall building, among others, its WDR feature helps get you through a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels that yield excessively bright or dark recordings. WDR does this by getting rid of overly bright spots and correcting colour balance to produce nothing but clear images.

Nighttime Picture Quality Correction

Images from videos recorded at nighttime on poorly-lit avenues, streets or roads generally don’t look that lucid. But with this, it’s an entirely different story. It’s armed with enhancement sensors that make brightness, colour and noise cancellation controls possible each time; hence, vivid video recordings of your evening drive.

Automatic Exposure

A sudden rise of light exposure brought about by intense sunlight or headlight beams from oncoming vehicles, or poor lighting in a tunnel may give any ordinary dash cam trouble capturing clear images but not THINKWARE dash cams. They come with an automatic light exposure function that controls light exposure levels for crisp footage at all times.

u1000 camera night vision

Super Night Vision 2.0

Using the latest Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology, which brings real-time image processing to the table, this captures images and records videos of up to 10 times brighter even in low-light environments like dark alleyways or underground parking lots for peace of mind.

Various Autonomous Recording Modes

Automatically activates as soon as the engine starts, this function lets you record videos that are saved in one-minute segments via an auto-looping mechanism.

Active Impact Monitoring System, made possible by the built-in three-axis G-Sensor, automatically stores video data 10 seconds prior and after a collision.

Recording Mode

Similar to how a typical video camera works, you use this mode to record events in front of your vehicle, whether or not it’s in motion, as they happen.

Advanced Parking
Surveillance Mode

Paired with a genuine THINKWARE Hard Wire Cable kit (HWC), this can provide full surveillance capabilities whenever your vehicle is parked. It securely stores 20 seconds of footage (10 seconds before/after) once it detects motion or impact.

f100 recording mode voice icon

Audio / Voice

Not only does it capture vivid videos, but it also records crystal-clear audio. This enables you to enjoy top-tier comprehensive surveillance capabilities to the fullest, too.


This feature significantly trims down your power consumption to up to 1/3 less, while giving you as much as 3x longer video recording capability. Serves you well when you’re on a vacation or you need to leave the vehicle unattended for quite some time, the Energy Save Parking Mode instantly puts the dash cam to sleep after capturing 20-second footage of an impact or motion detected by the G-Sensor.


Records at 2 frames per second, the Time Lapse Park Mode makes it possible to reduce the video files’ size; hence, this can capture videos from your parked vehicle up to 16 times longer than other dash cams can. This ensures important clips or images will stay safe in it’s memory for the long haul.

Using the THINKWARE Cloud app, this sends an alert to the user’s smartphone, should the vehicle figure in a collision or accident. On the other hand, the owner’s registered contacts can be notified in case the driver gets involved in a car crash, as well.

*The Thinkware Cloud App must be donwloaded to the Smartphone and an account must be registered. The dash cam must be connected via hotspot to a smartphone or wifi dongle that is located within the vehicle at all time to use the Cloud Features.

Lane Departure Warning System

Designed for distracted or drowsey drivers, the dash cam will alert you as soon as it senses you’re vehicle leaving the lane while driving at a speed of over 50 kilometres per hour. LDWS alerts you when leaving your lane to help keep any road misfortunes from ruining your trip or compromising you and your passengers’ safety.

High Speed / Urban Forward Collision Warning System

Keep a safe distance from the vehicle you’re following with the help of FCWS / uFCWS. Equipped with a state-of-the-art road safety warning system, it calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the automobile in front of you at a speed of over 30 kilometres per hour (km/h) (in expressways) and under 30 km/h in a busy, congested city. This dash cam issues a three-level early warning to the driver, depending on the danger of the possible collision.

Front Vehicle Departure Warning

When stopped at an intersection or a traffic jam, this dash cam’s Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) intelligent guidance system lets you know when the vehicle in front of you has already started moving, helping you stay attentive each time.

Comprehensive driving data information through built-in GPS

Using the GPS data can precisely pinpoint the vehicle’s location and routes with its driving speed on the map.The GPS helps you accurately assess the status of the accident by providing you with the vehicle speed,the direction of the collision and the severity of impact. The dash cam not only records driving footagebut can also be used to track and recall past driving routes whether it be work or holiday routes.

road safety camera alerts

Safety Camera Alerts

This dash cam comes with various Safety Camera Alert functions aimed at helping drivers abide by traffic rules and regulations to avoid getting ticketed for an infraction. Through the built-in GPS, it lets a driver know about a designated average speed camera & mobile speed zones and notifies drivers of upcoming fixed red-light and speed cameras.

High Temperature Protection System

U1000 Dash camera will automatically switch off in hot weather

Like all THINKWARE dash cams, this one comes with a built-in thermal sensor that protects it from getting hounded by the intense heat. Clad in a specially-designed heat discharge construction, the sensor automatically shuts the U1000 down to prevent it from overheating, allowing the dash cam to thrive even in the harshest Australian weather conditions.

Fail-safe Recording

u1000 dashcam with failsafe recording

In case the power gets disconnected after an accident, the dash cam’s supercapacitor-powered Fail-Safe Recording mode kicks in to ensure the safe and uninterrupted storage of any recording in progress at the time of the collision. Rest assured, these valuable files will be securely stored and stay accessible under any circumstances.

Format Free 2.0 Technology

Format-free 2.0 Technology helps extend your memory card’s shelf life. Since this dash cam utilises the File Allocation Table (FAT) system, there’s no need for you to keep on formatting the card manually. Why? Because this mechanism automatically deletes older and less important files in the memory.
