What customers say about "Key Specs"
Thinkware F800 Dash Cam
  • Gives me a sense of safety that I know I have a second set of eyes in front in case something happens that I can see if I could have avoided the sitiation
  • This dash cam doesn't have LCD display, so you can't see what settings you're changing etc, and HAVE to use the app.
  • Camera does everything it says. Very easy to mount, and very easy to retrieve video.
  • Easy windshield mount with double sided 3M tape and bracket.
  • For those who have not installed the unit yet, WiFi LED flashes so make sure u mount it behind the rear view mirror where u can’t see the unit.
Thinkware F800 PRO Dash Cam
  • Video quality good, I like the low profile. The lane deviance chime is annoying, but not too much.
  • This dash cam is one of the best. The only problem I have with it, it's as little too sensitive when installed on a truck even though it has a setting for trucks, every little bump thinks I just got into a accident.
  • Set it and forget it , night video is good, this is why I bought it.
  • This THINKWARE dash cam has a file lock feature to let you save important videos.
  • Aiming it at the angle you want is also quite easy, just connect via your smartphone and view the live video and then adjust it as you like.

What customers say about "Video"
Thinkware F800 Dash Cam
  • Best camera, fantastic quality video, recommended for my friends.
  • Its works great good photos and videos Keep You in the lines and from rear ending people
  • The camera works well and connects to a cell phone. Great video and works when parked with optional wiring kit. Use the Thinkware Cloud app.
  • Video resolution is great. The only problem I have is the dash reflects onto the windshield when in direct sunlight. This is captured by the dash cam.
  • The day and night video is amazing. You can read 90% or all the licence plates day or night.
Thinkware F800 PRO Dash Cam
  • Great hardware with high-quality recordings day and night.
  • I had Best Buy Autotech install the front and rear cameras for the F-800 Pro, and the video quality is amazing!
  • It has been easy to use, I think the parking mode is great and the video is very good for night vision.
  • Excellent. Easy to use. Great quality picture. Will be getting another soon.

What customers say about "Features"
Thinkware F800 Dash Cam
  • It has GPS built in, safety features enabled, supposedly superior optics for night etc.
  • It's great camera, offers a lot of features like Wifi connectivity, GPS built in, Full HD also offers rear camera (Optional).
  • Has all the features I was wanting and reliability I needed in a dash cam. No regrets
  • This dash cam is loaded with safety features. However, the volume even at max, is hard to hear. They have told me though that they are going to release a firmware update very soon to fix this.
  • Front crash avoidance ding is too low, and the feature is too slow & renders it unusable.
Thinkware F800 PRO Dash Cam
  • The parked feature is important as I have had may car badly dented twice by hit and run drivers while parked.
  • The software/phone app works well for viewing or downloading video when needed. I looked at severa competing models and none could compare in features and design.
  • The software/firmware is pathetic (barely beta quality). Features don't work, or if they work they are a pain to use.
  • It loses power immediately when you shut the car off
  • It’s ridiculously sensitive to shocks and bumps while driving. This has become a joke with my friends now, they count how many times it beeps while driving. And yes, the sensitivity is all the way down to the lowest setting.
