Here is one of the higher-end dash cams from the Thinkware range. The F800 offers a low range profile and top of the range capabilities.
*PLEASE NOTE: This is the hardwire version of the F800 Pro and not the Plug & Play version.*
This means that this dash cam must be hardwired to your vehicle or connected via the Thinkware OBD Self-Fit Hardwire Installation Cable.
The F800 incorporates all the latest, modern features. Including Safety Camera Alerts, Built in GPS Navigation and the new Super Night Vision.
The F800 features a 1080p Full HD front facing camera and comes with a 16GB Memory Card for storage. A full range of capabilities is shown below:
CMOS Image Sensors allow constant front and rearview Full 1080p HD resolution recording during both daytime and nighttime along with a 140-degree wide angle lens view. This will minimize blind spots to assure recording of all events without fail.
Videos recorded by a dash cam in a low light environment such as dark alleyway or underground parking lot can pose difficulties when you try to accurately identify information from the image.
SUPER NIGHT VISION employs the new ISP (Image Signal Processing) technology and the real-time image processing function to bring 10 times brighter images than our earlier models when recorded under nighttime parking mode.

Comparison of Parking Recordings
The Sony Exmor R STARVIS Image Sensor applied to the F800 PRO provides rich colors and the optimal resolution. STARVIS technology improves Exmor R's low light sensitivity by providing optimal image quality in visible ray and near-infrared range, allowing clear imaging in low light environments.
Energy saving parking recording will reduce power consumption by 1/3 less and gives 3x longer video recording than normal parking mode. When you are away for a vacation or leaving your car for quite some time, energy saving parking recording is a recommended solution. When in use, F800 PRO will go to sleep and soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, F800 PRO will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of period.
Important clips and images may get deleted due to insufficient memory space during long continuous recordings, especially in standard parking recording mode which requires large memory for saving 15 to 30 frames per second.
TIME LAPSE MODE in the F800 Pro records 1 frame per second reducing the size of the video file. This allows video recordings in parking mode to continue up to 16 times longer than other dash cams.
*Parking recording mode can be activated upon installing the F800 Pro with the hardwiring cable provided.
Geo Fencing allow drivers to stay alert of vehicle location. Whether your vehicle goes in/out side of a certain radical area, F800 PRO will send you push notification through mobile app, THINKWARE CLOUD. This is more practical for the parents, rental companies, and for fleet management. The radius can be set by typing the address or by using pin point on the mobile app. You may set 20 different radical area with the size from 100m up to 600km.
Locate Vehicle will help drivers to find the vehicle’s current location. F800 PRO will update its current location in every 10 seconds. Then it will display current location with speed and the heading direction integrated on google map.
In the event of a crash, the alert feature can help the driver to notify others of an emergency situation when the driver is not in the condition to do so. The family or the owner of the car can then remotely check on the situation from their location.
When the car experiences an impact with a g-force level greater than 3g or 4g while driving, the dash cam will automatically send a push notification alert of the impact to the user’s smartphone logged in to the THINKWARE CLOUD app. A 20 seconds video of the incident (10 seconds before and after the incident) is also saved on the THINKWARE CLOUD server, and a push notification alert of the video is sent to the user, which can be checked later and downloaded from the app.
The F800 Pro uses its database of camera locations and GPS technology to alert you to safety camera locations.
The voice alert system also advises of average speed zones and what the speed limit is.
*Some features may not be availabe in all countries
The F800 incorporates technology previously only seen in high end luxury vehicles.
Monitors road markings and if you begin to drift from your road lane the F800 will give a voice warning.
Sounds a voice warning if you get too close to a vehicle or object in front.
When your car is stopped at an intersection or in traffic, the intelligent guidance system informs you that the vehicle in front has started to move, preventing a delayed response just in case you stop looking ahead.
THINKWARE DASH CAMs are equipped with top-notch video enhancement technology on the market, ensuring the most vivid video recordings under any circumstance.
When you are driving under bright sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or getting under the shadow of a tall building etc, a sudden change in frontal light exposure levels can result in excessively bright or dark recordings. The WDR function eliminates excessively bright spots on the recording to correct its color balance in order to ensure a clear image.
Images from the videos recorded during nighttime driving on dark streets are generally difficult to make out. The enhancement Sensors of THINKWARE DASH CAMs come with a standard function of brightness and color control as well as noise cancellation.
A sudden rise of light exposure caused by strong sunlight or headlight beams of oncoming vehicle may cause difficulties to assess the situation. Also, lack of lighting in a dark tunnel or night driving may pose the same problem. The automatic light exposure function controls the level of light exposure to maintain vivid and clear video recordings in all circumstances.
This mode is activated automatically when you start the engine. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism.
The Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store the video data ten seconds prior to and after a collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor.
Similar to a video camera, you can use the Manual Recording Mode to capture events that occur in front of your vehicle whether or not it is in motion.
The dash cam will go to sleep and soon after an impact has been detection by built-in G-senor, F800 PRO will wake up within a second and start recording for next 20 seconds of period.
Your smartphone and the F800 PRO can be connected via the exclusive application ‘THINKWARE DASH CAM Mobile Viewer for F800 PRO’ with built-in Wi-Fi in the navigation. Check, download or delete recorded images, update firmware or update safe driving information on the application.
The intuitive and simple-to-use interface of THINKWARE DASH CAM allows you an easy and convenient viewing of your recorded videos. Through PC or Mac viewer, you can playback and download recorded videos along with your route history and speed record. You can also change the dash cam settings, format the memory card, or install updates with just a few clicks on the viewer.
Using the GPS data in F800 Pro, it 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 the impact. The DASH CAM not only records driving footage but can also be used to track and recall past driving routes whether it be work or holiday routes.
* The F800 Pro comes with built-in GPS.
The specially designed heat discharge construction and the built-in thermal sensor of the F800 Pro protect the device and its data against intense heat by automatically turning it off to prevent overheating.
