Our client from Abbotsford B.C. gave us the opportunity to install a dash cam in their 2017 Volvo XC90. This vehicle is top of the line in luxury. It has 4 captains chairs 2 in the front and 2 in the back ensuring maximum comfort. XC90 comes equipped with a T8 PHEV plug-in hybrid combined 400 horsepower engine. Furthermore, our client depends on it to drive 400km on average per day. All i can say is this vehicle reminds me of riding a plane in first class.

Why invest in a dash cam? Firstly, they wanted protection in case the unexpected happens. Nobody plans on a car accident, hence why they are called accidents and not “on purpose.” In addition to this, a friend of theirs was in a major collision where someone else submitted footage of the accident. Not everyone gets this lucky. Put yourself in the driver seat with your own dash cam.

Dash Cam Selection

Choosing a dash cam to compliment this amazing SUV was not that hard. They wanted high performance, great quality, and 4K resolution. The Thinkware U1000 checked all the boxes. Making it easy to match for the perfect dash cam install in their Volvo. After all it is the best 4k dash cam in 2021.


The Thinkware U1000 is equipped with a 4K front camera and a 2K rear camera. Both cameras record at 30 frames per second. If I change a setting I can make the front camera record in 2K at 60 frames per second. Making for really smooth video.

Furthermore, tired of guessing car models and plates on a low-quality video? The Thinkware U1000 will close the gap and give you a higher chance. The dash cam offers ultimate 4K video quality that allows you to see even the smallest details on the recording.

Lastly, the camera’s special night mode allows you to capture high-quality shots even in complete darkness. Subsequently, with Thinkware U1000, there will be no need to worry about your nighttime recordings. The matrix of the camera produces nighttime videos of high resolution with impeccable sharpness and one-of-a-kind detailing.

Record Only When Needed

Wanting to know what is happening to your vehicle while you are away? Thinkware U1000 can do that, but in a smart and efficient way. 24/7 recording can take up a significant amount of storage space and energy. Save up your resources by recording only when the motion, and impact is detected, and Thinkware’s Radar Module will help you with that.

The radar looks after the motion, and when impact is detected, it gives a signal to the camera and saves a 20-second video – 10 seconds before the motion detected and 10 seconds after so that you can see the full picture when you are back to your car. As easy as that.


In short, not sure whether Thinkware U1000 is truly the best dash cam for your vehicle? Contact us now and ask our dash camera experts for a consultation! We will be happy to help you make the right choice and offer our extra services.
