No Thinkware DC before. Used iTracker for multiple years, tried Blackvue and now i'm running the U1000.did you have a thinkware before and if so how does it compair to this one?
Hello There, Please ensure that the Network Function Settings have been enabled. As long as the Dash Cam is connected via Hotspot while you are away, you will have access to the Cloud Features Screen on your smartphone.I just bought U1000 and everything works fine but only thing I can’t figure out how to access live view and when I’m not next to car. I did connect wifi and hotspot when In iPhone Thinkware cloud app and when I’m not next to car it can’t locate the car on the map.
I understand that but I can’t be connected to hotspot if I take my phone away with me. That only works if I the phone is in the car.Hello There, Please ensure that the Network Function Settings have been enabled.

Actually the Viofo A129 Pro has a better 4K image quality than the Thinkware U1000.For the price point I am not impressed. The Viofo A129 Pro seems to be better both in video and Price. Hoping that someone will do a comparison between the two dash cams.
Keep in mind that Thinkware partitions the cards based on the type of recording you choose as priority. Depends on setting, you might only be able to allocate 75% of a 128 Gb card for continious recording and others are reserved for other things (incident recording, manual recording, parking mode,...etc).It’s about 18GB/h dual channel, so a 128GB gives about 7hr of continuous recording. That’s not too bad imo, it’ll be good for much longer in timelapse parking. 128GB on the A129 Pro should result in about 4-5hr of continuous, downside of higher bitrate.
I think there’s a reason why Thinkware cameras are designed the way they are. Simply put, it works. I’d rather have a crappy looking camera that works 100% of the time rather than an “engineered” sleek looking camera that fails every time weather gets over 90*F. I’m sure Thinkware’s design is engineered to continuously work in any condition. I’ve had all of my premium dash cams go into thermal shut down except my Thinkware cameras.i will be taking a pass on this, the reason i went thinkware was stabiltiy before form factor. If they would have engineered the camera like the blackvue with a more compact design which you could use in any country that would have been an A++. The U1000 however is a step in the wrong direction, its impossible to find a good place to put this in the car without it standing out like a brick glued to a windscreen
