    New U1000 owner, couple questions

    Hi guys, I just bought a U1000, which is a major upgrade for me from my old Mobius action cam as a dash cam. I'm pretty excited, I hope I made the right decision. I was on the fence about a DR900-S, a A129 pro, and the U1000. In the end the U1000 got the nod. I have a couple questions for...

    A few questions after setting up my Thinkware U1000

    The setup is the U1000 with front and rear cams, the radar, all powered by a cellink neo6 that’s hardwired to the car. 1. Will it ever go into parking mode like this? 2. How do I start/stop a manual recording? 3. In continuous mode there are hundreds of videos that are all 3 to 20 seconds...

    Solar panels to help prevent 12v car battery drain in parking mode

    I currently have a small solar panel which I think is 1.5w and does very little. My car can sometimes be left for over a week without being used. My car is supplied as new with a 063 battery, and as the battery tray is big enough I have fitted a 096 battery instead for extra capacity. I use an...

    402G Turns off and then back on without power

    I reinstalled my Nextbase 402G after a recent near accident I wish I had captured, so after two years without use the battery was no longer taking charge and the camera would just immediately turn off when the car ignition was turned off (hardwire kit). So I gt a replacement battery and gave it...

    Do you need to disconnect the powered mount from the car when parked with or without the camera attached, is battery drainage/safety an issue?

    Two channel camera with parking mode for electric car?

    I just installed a Blackvue DR750S-2ch into my car. I like the all the features but I'm not liking the video quality (coming from an A119 in my old car). The main reason I went with the DR750 was because of its G-Sensor/movement activated parking mode. As my car is electric, it doesn't have...

    Hoping you gurus can help me. I've just had front & rear F800 pros hard wired/installed with an external/extra iVolt Mini battery. I think at the moment all it is doing is recording in a continuous loop. There are no other videos despite parking mode enabled and set to motion detection. Plus...
