Thanks to Sicurez Dashcam Station-Malaysia for providing the newly launched model from Thinkware, the F200. Malaysia is one of the three countries in the world to be the first to pre-launch this F200.

Test setup

I will be using 128GB Netac Pro micro SD for the recordings. I’ll also be using the external GPS receiver from Thinkware with the F200.

 

Initial firmware out of the box

Have updated to v1.01.00 from v1.00.00 with the update to sync date and time with the connected smartphone.

 

Thinkware Cloud app

 

Videos
The videos below are recorded in 1920×1080 30fps with an overall bit rate of 11.2 Mb/s for the front camera and in 1280×720 30fps with an overall bit rate of 11.2 Mb/s for the rear camera.

 

My thoughts
A great improvement over the F100. Videos are much clearer for this entry level dual dashcam from Thinkware. But I wished that Thinkware should have considered 1080p for both front and rear cameras instead of the 720p for the rear camera.

And most importantly is able to sync date and time and update firmware using the Thinkware Cloud app.
