Connecting via Hotspot to the Thinkware F800 Pro is crucial for Registration and accessing the Cloud Features. 

Please follow the instructions below to connect via Hotspot:

Connecting via Hotspot (Android)

  1. Open the Thinkware Cloud App and Tap the “Not Connected” Bar
  2. Select Add a New Connection > (Dash Cam Model) > Hotspot > First Time Connecting- Yes
  3. Press the Dash Cam’s Wi-Fi Button
  4. Connect to the Thinkware Wi-Fi Network then reopen the Thinkware Cloud App
  5. Press Next, and input your phone’s Hotspot SSID (username) and password
  6. Reopen the Thinkware Cloud App and press Next
  7. Turn on your phone’s Hotspot in Settings and Do not leave this settings screen
  8. Once you hear “Connected to the Internet”, open the Thinkware Cloud App.
  9. You are now Connected via Hotspot
When the Dash Cam is searching for the Phone's Hotspot, DO NOT leave the Phone's Mobile Hotspot Settings Screen. If you enter the Thinkware Cloud App prematurely, the connection will be disrupted and you will need to begin this process once more.
