The THINKWARE F50 Dash Cam offers a single channel 1080p Full HD option at a highly competitive price. It is capable of great quality video at any time due to its Sony developed CMOS Image sensor and standard recording modes. As you’d expect, there’s a continuous mode for loop recording in normal day-to-day scenarios; a manual mode to give the user control (regardless of whether the car is on or off); and more notably, an ‘incident recording mode’ that uses the camera’s 3 axis G sensor to detect a collision and automatically stores the footage 10 seconds before and after the event. Clever stuff!
The camera is fitted with a built in temperature sensor to turn the unit off in the event of overheating – an important thig in the brutal Australian sun. The THINKWARE F50 is also compatible with the optional GPS tracker that allows the recording of vehicle speed and location. While not a necessity - having this as an option allows an easy upgrade of your dash cam down the track to reduce the initial investment.
The tech savvy among us will appreciate that the F50 benefits from using a TAT (Time Allocation Table) save system compared to the outdated FAT (File Allocation Table). This means no more formatting of your memory card, and video files that can be viewed on your smartphone or PC without the need to convert the file.
The F50 provides a great entry point into the market with its easy to install nature if you’re new to the dash cam world. Just plug it into your car’s 12V socket, stick it on the windscreen, choose your recording mode and away you go.

THINKWARE DASH CAM F50 saves the hassle of manually clearing memory space.
Continuous Recording Mode
This mode is activated automatically when you start the engine. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism.

COMPREHENSIVE DRIVING INFORMATION WITH GPS
With the optional GPS Tracker, the THINKWARE DASH CAM F50 / X350 can record the vehicle's driving speed and provide its precise location and routes identification on the map. The GPS Tracker helps you to accurately assess the details of the surrounding area by providing you with the vehicle speed and the time of a collision, and the severity of impact. The video recording feature not only stores driving footages in case of an event, but it can also be used to track your holiday travel routes.
