I notice that Thinkware has the Radar Module for the U1000 which in my opinion is near useless having it for the front windshield. Nevertheless I wonder if they did this as a last ditch effort to save a product that consumes too much current.

Does anyone know the current draw of the U1000 vs the Q800 (2 camera systems)when in Normal parking mode ie motion and timelaps (not power saver mode)?

The U1000 consumes approximately 300 Megs of storage each minute. 200 Megs for the front (4k) 100 meg for the rear.
I am using a 512GB chip in both the Q800 as well as the U1000.
