I think all of you who follow my blog are, no doubt, safety-conscious drivers.  And it is obvious, because our build is our pride and joy and we try our very best to keep it protected.  As for myself, I am a firm believer in dash cams because not only does it provide you with evidence when it comes to an accident dispute, I also enjoy rewatching our night runs with my crew.  

Many of you probably know by now that I’m very specific when it comes to my car and same goes with my dash cam.  BlackBoxMyCar.com picked out the new flagship, front & rear “Thinkware Dash Cam F800 Pro” for me for its sleek design, sitting horizontally on the dashboard, as well as its high quality sensor, meaning it is one of the better sat navs for recording in low-light conditions, offering excellent night time video quality - great for night running.  A few videos here of us cruising 

The dash cam package comes with everything you will need for an easy installation. There is the front and rear camera, 12V plug, USB cord and a hard wire kit. There are also different mounting brackets and 3M tape.  Installation is very simple and it’s designed to fit most vehicles out in the market.  It only took me 45 mins to have the front and rear camera installed and calibrated. The extra long usb cable that connects the front and rear camera will fit anything from a small K-car to a full size SUV. 

In terms of extra features, there are different recording modes from auto, manual to parking mode. The dash cam will automatically turn on once it’s powered. It will be on standby mode when the car is off to save your battery. The internal shock sensor will activate the camera if it detects any suddenly movement and will immedately start recording. There is also wifi connection to make downloading the video a much easier task than taking out the sd card and upload it to your computer.

 

The F800 Pro feature are 1080P HD front camera with Super night vision 2.0. The 140 degree wide angle can also capture and very wide view. Here are images from the the dash cam front and back camera. 

I am very please with the dash cam. These are some of the things you don't need until you suddenly do. Drive safe everyone.
