Here’s the new entry-level 1ch dashcam from Thinkware, the F70. Thanks to Sicurez Dashcam Station-Malaysia for the review unit.

The F70 is the successor to the F50.

Test setup

I will be using 128GB Netac Pro micro SD for the recordings. I’ll also be using the Thinkware external GPS receiver with the F70 for the Smart Camera Alert functions.

Final thoughts
The F70 is a good entry level 1ch dashcam with true parking mode.

But as there is no screen or wifi to connect to the F70, the only way to setup the F70 is by taking out the micro SD card and using the PC viewer on a computer.
