Thinkware U1000 4K UHD Resolution Flagship Front Dash Camera

One of the highest quality 2-channel dash cams on the market, THINKWARE's newest flagship dash cam model U1000 records in real 4K UHD resolution up front and 2K QHD resolution down back. The U1000 offers the newest Cloud Connected capabilities, such as Live View, Locate Vehicle, Geo-Fencing, and Impact Notifications, along with other crucial driver safety features like ADAS and safety camera warnings, all housed in a low profile and contemporary design.

You may capture crystal-clear 4K UHD 2160P front and 1440P 2K QHD rear cam footage with this device, day or night. It is equipped with CMOS Image Sensors. Its 150-degree wide-angle lens vision, which minimises blind spots everywhere, is even superior.

Additionally, 2K QHD recording at 60 frames per second is supported by the DYNAMIC 2K AT 60FPS U1000.
High frame rates produce images that are both smoother and crisper.

This can advance your surveillance capabilities by having an input for a second camera. The 2K 1440P QHD rear camera, which is an optional extra and is included in 2 channel kits, can be added to the mix to achieve overall peace of mind and allows you to keep an eye on what is going on behind your vehicle.

a broad dynamic range (WDR)
Its WDR feature helps you get through a fast change in frontal light exposure levels that results in overly bright or dark recordings, whether you're driving in direct sunlight, coming out of a tunnel, or into the shadow of a tall structure, among other situations. WDR accomplishes this by eliminating excessively bright areas and adjusting colour balance to create only clear images.

Correction for Nighttime Picture Quality
Videos taken at night on dimly lit streets, avenues, or roads typically don't appear to be very clear. This, however, is a quite different matter. It is equipped with improved sensors that allow for constant modification of brightness, colour, and noise cancellation, resulting in vivid video recordings of your evening journey.

Adaptive Exposure
However, THINKWARE dash cams are not affected by rapid increases in light exposure generated on by bright sunlight, headlight beams from approaching cars, or poor lighting in a tunnel. They have an automated light exposure feature that regulates light exposure settings for consistently clear footage.

For peace of mind, this captures photographs and records videos of up to 10 times brighter even in low-light conditions like dark alleyways or subterranean parking lots using the most recent Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology, which brings real-time image processing to the table.

Energy-saving mode in park
With the help of this feature, you may record videos for up to three times longer while using up to a third less power. The Energy Save Parking Mode automatically puts the dash cam to sleep after recording 20 seconds of footage of an impact or motion detected by the G-Sensor, which comes in handy when you're on vacation or need to leave the vehicle unattended for quite some time.

*HWC is necessary; available separately

It can capture recordings from your parked vehicle for up to 16 times longer than other dash cams because it records at 2 frames per second and reduces the size of the video files. This guarantees that significant videos or pictures will be preserved in its memory for a long time.

*HWC is necessary; available separately


System for Lane Departure Warnings
The dash cam will notify you as soon as it detects your car leaving the lane while travelling at a speed of more than 50 kilometres per hour and is designed for distracted or sleepy drivers. To prevent any road mishaps from spoiling your journey or jeopardising the safety of you and your passengers, LDWS warns you when you leave your lane.

High-Speed/Urban Forward Collision Warning System (FCWS/uFCWS)
With the assistance of FCWS / uFCWS, maintain a secure distance from the vehicle you are following. It estimates the real-time distance between your car and the car in front of you at a speed of over 30 kilometres per hour (km/h) on expressways and under 30 km/h in a busy, congested city since it is outfitted with a cutting-edge road safety alert system. Depending on how dangerous a potential collision is, this dash camera sends the driver a three-level early warning.

Warning for Front Vehicle Departure
The Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) intelligent guidance system on this dash cam alerts you when the car in front of you has already started moving whether you are stopped at an intersection or in a traffic congestion, allowing you to remain alert each time.

Because of the dash cam's integrated GPS, you can use it to track your car's speed, pinpoint its location, and find the best routes on a map. GPS enables accurate assessment of a location's details, enabling you to mark vacation routes for quicker travel. It provides an accurate reading of vehicle speed, collision timing, and impact force in the event of a traffic accident.

The Safety Camera Alert features on this dash cam are designed to make it easier for drivers to follow traffic laws and regulations without receiving a penalty. It has a built-in GPS that alerts drivers of impending fixed red-light and speed cameras as well as designated average speed cameras and mobile speed zones.


Like all THINKWARE dash cams, this one has an integrated thermal sensor that guards against damage from the strong heat. The dash cam can survive even in the most extreme Australian weather conditions thanks to the sensor, which immediately shuts down the U1000 to prevent it from overheating. The sensor is covered in a specially built heat discharge construction.

The dash cam's supercapacitor-powered Fail-Safe Recording mode comes in to assure the safe and uninterrupted storage of any recording that was in process at the time of the collision, even if the power is cut off after an accident. You can be sure that these priceless documents will be safely stored and always available.

Technology known as FORMAT-FREE 2.0
Your memory card's shelf life is increased with format-free 2.0 Technology. There is no need to constantly manually formatting the card because this dash cam uses the File Allocation Table (FAT) method. Why? because the memory's older, less essential files are automatically deleted by this process.
