Dash cams have become extremely popular in recent years, allowing you to record footage while you’re driving. These devices have proved helpful in situations where an accident occurs, automatically storing a video that you can replay to see all the events leading up to the collision. The latest offering from THINKWARE is the Q800 PRO dash cam, featuring 1440p video recording, compared to the most standard 1080p quality. In this article, we’ll take a look at this new dash cam and its features to help determine if it’s the right dash cam for you.

Powered by a new and improved Sony STARVIS image sensor, the Q800 PRO records 2K (2560 x 1440) QHD video content with a 140-degree wide angle view. That’s complemented by THINKWARE’s Super Night Vision 2.0 technology, which is capable of capturing license plate images even in low-light conditions thanks to new image signal processing (ISP) technology. The company also uses exclusive advanced video clear technology, which is designed to help reduce noise while enhancing the image quality of recordings. Advanced wide dynamic range (WDR) helps cover a greater span between bright and dark areas while driving.

Along with recording video footage while driving, the Q800 PRO has a nice collection of other convenient features. Parking Mode, for example, puts the camera to work even when you’re not driving. Impact detection, motion detection, time lapse mode, and energy saving mode all help make the Q800 PRO a complete package. Now, when you leave your car unattended, you can rest knowing that the dash cam will record any unwanted activities near your vehicle.

It’s also equipped with some advanced driver assistance features, such as forward collision warning, lane departures, and front vehicle departures. The Q800 PRO is also compatible with THINKWARE CLOUD connectivity, which includes live view, geo-fencing, the ability to locate your vehicle’s location, driving impact notifications, and video upload. The THINKWARE CLOUD mobile app is compatible with both Google Android and Apple iOS devices.

The standard Q800 PRO dash cam is priced at $299.99, but for an additional $99.99, you can add on a full high definition rear camera to the package. Each box also includes 3M adhesive windshield mount, power cable (hardwiring cable available), a 32GB microSD card, USB microSD card reader, and a user manual.
