Thinkware’s Various Recording Mode

All Thinkware Dash Cams come equipped with various recording modes that can be tailored to you. All our devices offer various Parking Mode options which can be configured based on your needs. In addition to Parking Modes, Thinkware cameras all have Continuous, Incident and Manual Recording modes.

Continuous Recording – Records constantly while driving

When you power up any Thinkware Dash Cam the camera will begin Continuously Recording.

  • Automatically triggered by starting the vehicle's ignition with the Car Charger or the Hardwiring Cables.
  • Records in 1 Minute Segments
  • Rear Cam records simultaneously with the Front Cam (optional accessory required) 
Incident Recording – Begins an Incident Clip if an accident occurs while driving

Thinkware Dash Cams come standard with a built-in Gyro-sensor which detects impacts while on the road.

  • Incident Recording Mode is combined with Continuous Recording Mode
  • Built-in G-Sensor detects accidents
  • When the sensor is triggered the video file will be saved in the Event Recording Folder
  • The Event Recording Folder saves only Incident Recordings which makes locating that crucial accident footage easy.

 We recognize that some moments while driving are worth keeping, thus all Thinkware Dash Cam models come with Manual Recording Mode.
