I just installed this to replace an existing dash cam that didn’t have a parking mode. So far I’ve been happy with my purchase Setup: I’m used to running wiring through my car, but even so, I didn’t have to remove any panels to install this. Most headliners have a small gap between the front window that you can tuck the cable into. The cable for the rear camera was a bit thick and I had to use a credit card to pry the headliner a little bit so I didn’t get damaged by forcing the cable under it. Running it under the headliner from the front to back window required me to lift the rubber door seal out of the way, but just slightly. Wiring Kit: The instructions are non-existent when it comes to connecting the cable to constant power for parking mode. Simply put, you need to identify a fuse that provides power, even with the car turned off. This can be your flashers, or a cigarette lighter that works without turning on the car. You’ll also need to identify a fuse for something that works ONLY when the car is turned on. In my particular case, the front cigarette lighter only works when the car is turned on, but the rear works all the time.

Having nothing other than youtube video’s to compare this to, here’s my review. Installation was easy but, I’m a technical type of person who tinkers with this type of stuff all the time. You may want a professional to install it for you or you can google it like I did and have it installed in 10-15 minutes. My opinion of the video quality is that it’s excellent. The audio is pretty damned good but I think could be a little better. This isn’t a show stopper for me and really isn’t even an issue, unless you’re trying to catch someone in a lie and they are in the back seat of your SUV with the windows opened. The app used to configure the device is pretty straight forward. I took the advice of others and purchased this particular model with the micro SD card. I’ve heard of issues using certain brands on certain days with certain heat, etc… Piece of mind and I know the company will warranty it. You can set the sensitivity of every warning feature to 3 different settings. It’s really a cool device. The night time camera is absolutely phenomenal. I recently witnessed a really crazy accident, I wish I had this installed prior to that so I could show it. So far I’m very happy with this product.
Really good camera with some nice features and high quality recording.

I’ve had a couple of dashcams and this one is certainly much better in regards to quality and capabilities. One thing I have found already is when people see cameras mounted in the front AND rear of the vehicle, the car behind backs off and aggressive behaviors around your vehicle decrease noticeably. The software is pretty good for connecting to the camera and adjusting settings via the built-in wifi. I had to shut off the collision detection and lane departure notifications because the thing was beeping all the time. The lane departure especially is annoying because it can’t detect whether you’re going around curves or changing lanes so it was best to shut it off. I wish the parking photos could be turned off because I don’t need it. The kit could easily come with more wire self adhesive wire holders because the few in there are not enough to elegantly suspend the wires in front and back. I’m waiting for a version of the camera so the rear camera can send video wirelessly to the main camera then a large cable doesn’t have to be brought all the way to the front of the car.
Probably The best 2-channel dash cam out on the market right now

I’ve recently decided to upgrade from my present G1W-C, to something that offered better night-time video quality, had a reliable parking mode, and a better feature set. After reading literally dozens of dash-cam reviews online, and watching more than a few Youtube videos on the subject, I decided on the Thinkware F770, as it seemed to be the best solution for my needs. And, I was not disappointed. The F770’s video quality is very good (especially at night). The ability to fine-tune the unit’s shock sensitivity, and it’s built in voltage cut-off and shutdown timers are the icing on the cake. Installing the unit is fairly straight forward, and depending on the vehicle, can be accomplished in under an hour. I suggest picking up a set of plastic interior trim removal tools beforehand, as they can be had for just a few dollars, and will prove invaluable when the need arises to remove pillar moldings and help push video and power cables behind your car’s headliner. Hard-wiring can range from simple, to a contortionist’s nightmare, as on my Mustang (the interior fuse box on that car is located behind the kick panel in the passenger side foot-well).
Defense against negligent drivers, all while becoming a better driver yourself.

This is a valuable accessory to have for your car. Initially I thought it would increase my defense against “less than smart” drivers who don’t wish to admit fault in the event of a collision. However, admittedly it has also improved MY driving. Knowing that YOUR driving is also being recorded in addition to others’ makes you a lot more aware, accountable and conscious as a driver. As for the camera itself, the video quality is stellar. The dual HD projections are valuable in identifying tag numbers, makes/models, etc. in varying light and weather conditions. The sound quality from the microphone is also stellar. My only wish is that the app could be accessed remotely, particularly via the live feed whether it’s in parking mode, or if someone else is driving your car (i.e. – valet) and you want to monitor what their doing. As it stands now, you can only patch into it when you’re connected to the device’s wi-fi. This means I can only retrieve/download videos while I’m in my car. This can be inconvenient at times. Other than that, no complaints.
Nice Dash Cam – easy to set up and use.

I am very happy with this das cam. I have both the front and rear cams. The installation was easy. The cameras are simple to adjust using your phone connected via wifi. The picture quality is good for both the front and rear cameras, even at night. It has nice safety features such as lane departure warning, forward collision warning and red light warning. The safety settings are very straight forward to dial in. I have the extra power harness. I is easy to connect .
Great Product and Easy to Install

Chose this dash cam after reading a review comparing it to the BlackVue dash cam. Both were rated very highly but the ThinkWare edged out the BlackVue based on video quality and features. Installed in a Tesla Model S and installation was very easy and came with all the necessary parts (wiring, clips, etc). There are a lot of options that can be configured and video quality is great. The only issue I have right away is the volume of small files it saves. This may be configurable so I won’t ding the review until I know for sure. But I would prefer longer recording times per file. Otherwise, great product and I’m pleased with the purchase.
