THINKWARE Launches F800 Pro Dash Cam with Cloud Connectivity
London, August 28, 2017: World leading dash cam company, THINKWARE, today announces the launch of its newest, top of the range model, the F800 Pro.
Users can easily control and manage their F800 Pro dash cam with cloud connectivity and built-in WiFivia an iOS or Android smart phone, providing a truly convenient way to view, download, access or delete recorded images as well as enable firmware and safety camera updates via the app. The F800 Pro bringsa range of new features to the market including lower power consumption for extended parking mode and connection to the THINKWARE cloud when it arrives in the autumn.
Equipped with Sony Exmor R Starvis sensors for both front and rear cameras and the powerful Ambarella A12 processor, the F800 Pro offers crystal clear 1080p footage. The introduction of Super Night Vision 2.0 means clearer night time footage both while driving and when parked with up to 10 times the brightness in dark environments.
Users will benefit from different recording modes; motion and impact detection or Time Lapse Photography at two frames per second for up to 48 hours. If a driver is leaving their car for a longer period of time, they could use the Energy saving parking mode where the F800 Pro will sleep until an impact is detected and will wake up within a second, start recording for the next 20 seconds. It extends the parking mode to approximately one week.
“Nearly three million motorists are now recording their journeys with dashcam, according to a new RAC study, and with more motorists starting to see the value of dashboard cameras, it is an important time for THINKWARE to bring the latest innovation to the dash cam industry” stated Brian Yang, THINKWARE DASH CAM’s General Manager of Global Business Development. “An increasing number of insurers are accepting footage when reviewing claims and offering discounts to those with dash cams installed. By incorporating cloud connectivity into our dash cams, we are moving one step closer to offering insurers and drivers more streamlined insurance claims.”
The F800 Pro is packed with useful features including built-in A-GPS for embedded speed, time and location data into recorded videos. The location is remembered so it achieves instant GPS lock when switched on. There is also the option of connecting an external GPS antenna, to get around the shielding effect of heated or sun reflective windscreens. Format Free 2.0 Technology eliminates the need for manual reformatting of recorded video files on the micro SD memory card, extending memory card life and improving reliability.
