Stunning Video Quality
Tired of guessing car models and plates on a low quality video? With Thinkware U1000 this will no longer be a problem for you. The dash cam offers ultimate 4K video quality that allows to see even the smallest details on the recording. Car plates, road signs, people’s faces and other objects will all be clearly visible on videos recorded by Thinkware U1000.
The camera’s special night mode allows to capture high-quality shots even in complete darkness. With Thinkware U1000, there will be no more need to worry about your night time recordings. The matrix of the camera produces nighttime videos of high resolution with impeccable sharpness and one-of-a-kind detailing.
Cloud-Based Storage System*
We all know that dash cam videos especially 4K ones take up a lot of space on a memory card. Therefore, Thinkware introduced an innovative cloud-based storage system that uploads all of your dash cam videos to your personal cloud storage. With Thinkware U1000, you will forget about carrying an extra memory card with you and worrying about storage space.
Record Only When Needed
Willing 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 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.
Polarized Lens for Enhanced Picture Quality
Thinkware delivers a large range of add-on accessories that can be purchased extra for their U1000 dash camera. Among them is the polarized lens that is a little yet effective accessory solving a large number of quality-related issues.
Although the camera offers ultimate 4K video quality, the picture might sometimes be overexposed because of the bright sunlight or other intensive light. To avoid that, use a polarized lens that can be purchased extra to your Thinkware U1000. Simply put it on the camera’s lens, and enjoy enhanced color quality and improved light exposure on every shot made by your dash cam.

If you’re scouring the internet in search of the latest dash camera technology, you may run into a few confusing tech specs. Dashcam resolution is one of the most important specifications to pay attention to, as these will affect the video quality. Good video quality can mean the difference between capturing every single aspect of an incident, or capturing a blurry moment in time. In this article, we’ll walk you through a few of the important things to know about dashcam resolution.
There are many different dashcam resolutions on the market currently, 720p, 1080p, 2k, and 4k. At Safe Drive Solutions, we offer a whole range of models varying from 1080p, 2k, and 4k resolution dashcams. Obviously, the higher the resolution, the clearer the picture. This is important for capturing video in dim light, nighttime, or dusk—or picking up minute details.
WHICH DASHCAM RESOLUTION IS RIGHT FOR YOU
As mentioned, at Safe Drive Solutions, we offer 1080p, 2k, and 4k—which are common terms when buying a tv that many people will be familiar with. Let’s begin with 1080p.
The “1080” refers to the amount of pixels that run vertically down a screen, while having 1920 pixels running horizontally. Although 1080p devices have been around for many years now, it remains the industry standard for many video or display devices. It’s also the default setting on YouTube and Netflix.
1080P, while being excellent picture quality, remains the lowest resolution among our dashcams. This doesn’t mean they’re bad—in fact most vehicle owners would be thrilled with the picture quality from their 1080p dashcam. However, 2k and 4k displays offer a sharper, clearer image that allows for a more robust capture. The Dash Cam models that record in 1080P are the; FA200, F200PRO, NX7 and T10S2.
Next on the dashcam resolution hierarchy are the 2k dashcams. 2k is a bit of a “catch-all” term used to describe devices that capture or display over 2000 horizontal pixels x 1080. The difference in pixels between a 1080p dashcam and a 2k dashcam can be a few hundred thousand, to 1.6 million pixels. This means 2k dashcams can be of exceptional quality in comparison to 1080p.
The Thinkware QA100 Elite front camera is 2560 pixels horizontally and 1440 pixels vertically so a lot more detail compared to a 1080p camera. This allows for a much wider, much clearer view with a lot more detail. This is especially apparent when you zoom in. It retains clarity far better than a 1080p dashcam would.
When you want a reliable dashcam that will pick up clear images of street signs, license plates, and other minute details—which can significantly assist you in case of a claim—then a 2k dashcam might be for you.
Our QA100 Elite is a 2K Resolution Thinkware Dash Cam.
Now, for the granddaddy of them all—the 4k resolution dashcam. 4k, just like 2k, refers to the number of pixels running horizontally on a display. It’s a generic term that encapsulates 2 different resolutions—3820 and 4096 horizontal pixels by 2160 vertical pixels.
4k is 4 times the resolution of 1080p. That means zooming in on this footage is completely seamless, allowing for a full and vivid picture of what was captured, even at super high zoom levels.
Unfortunately, in the dashcam industry, there are some pretenders. If you’ve been looking for a 4k dashcam, you may have noticed some discrepancies in quality from one 4k dashcam to the next. That’s because some companies have cheated the specs and utilized poor chipsets, which are actually just recording in HD and resizing the image to 4k.
Our 4K dashcams are TRUE, VIVID 4K. Even when viewed on huge screens, the video quality from our 4k dashcams remains pristine. The Thinkware U1000 and IROAD X10 use Native 4k Resolution to increase detail when capturing license plates at faster speeds, and for capturing detail in low-light conditions.
