Lane Departure Warning
Driving while drowsy or distracted greatly increases the chance of an accident on the road. Thinkware's Land Departure Warning System alerts the driver if the vehicle moves out of the lane when travelling over 50 km/h.
Forward Collision Warning
The Forward Collision Warning function calculates the average distance from the vehicle in front, alerting the driver in advance when reaching the range of safe breaking distance in order to prevent a collision.
Forward Departure Warning
When the vehicle is at a stand still, the Thinkware Forward Departure Warning System alerts the driver when the vehicle in front starts to move, letting you know that it’s time go.
Sophisticated Impact Detection
The X, Y, Z axes of the G sensor found in Thinkware dash cams measures fluctuations in gravity, speed and rotation. This allows users to review axial movement and impact that took place during an accident at a glance.
LED Security Light
Designed as a visual deterrent to help prevent vandals from damaging your vehicle even while parked, the X500 Dash Cam lets people know they are being recorded with an LED security light found on the front of the unit. This feature can be enabled/disabled in the camera's system settings if required.
Dual Save Feature
Designed to save recorded footage in both the microSD memory card and the built-in internal memory in incident recording mode, Thinkware's Dual Save technology functions as a safeguard against the possible loss of data in the aftermath of a severe collision*. Dual Save Technology guarantees a backup copy of the video in the internal memory of the X500 in the event that the memory card gets damaged.
*Dual Save Technology is activated when a specific level of impact is detected. Sensitivity is fully adjustable via the Dash Cam's settings.
Thinkware Dash Cams feature a fail-safe during recording, utilising a Super Capacitor for backup power to ensure safe storage of any recording in progress in the event that the power gets disconnected – so you can be assured your valuable data will be securely stored under any circumstance.
Positioning of dash cams can see them have to endure extreme heat for long periods of time and this is what sets the good from the not so good... All Thinkware dash cams feature a high level of thermal protection and are specially designed for efficient heat dissipation. However, in the instance that the extreme Aussie heat gets too much for the unit, the built-in thermal sensor will protect the device and its data by automatically turning it off to prevent overheating.
