New THINKWARE dash cam with parking mode launched for CV operators

Priced from £79.99, the F50 is equipped with an Ambarella chipset and Sony Exmor CMOS image sensor that records detailed full HD 1080p video at 30 frames per second, a 130-degree viewing angle and a built in Active Impact monitoring system.

When hardwired, the F50 features Parking Surveillance Modes with Motion and Impact Detection triggering the recording of 20 second video clips, ensuring vehicle operators are able to record incidents in parking mode for 48 hours. The built-in impact sensor is a 3 axis G-sensor with different settings for parking mode and continuous mode. All footage is instantaneously saved to a memory card reducing potential data corruption.

The F50 dash cam can also be connected to an optional GPS Antenna to provide drivers with regularly updated information on verified speed/red–light camera locations and known mobile speed traps thanks to a partnership with camera alert specialist, Cyclops.

In the event of power loss during an accident, the dash cam’s fail-safe recording uses the Super Capacitor to ensure that any recordings in progress are stored securely. The dash cam is also able to work in extreme conditions thanks to the integrated Thermal Protection.
