Thanks to Sicurez for letting me get the very first unit of Thinkware U1000 in Malaysia. The first 4K + 2K dual dashcam.

Could this be the new king of the beast from Korea? I certainly think so.
Loving the new remote Live View function from the Thinkware Cloud 2.0 Beta. This feature is coming to Q800 Pro in the next update.
The 4K image quality might not be one of the best but choosing Thinkware is more for their overall features than just image quality alone.
I missed the “Knight Rider” security LED from the F800 Pro & Q800 Pro.

Fantastic review! Would be nice if you showed a comparison video with CPL filter On and Off

Thank you. But I usually prefer to use without the CPL filter as with my tint, the video will be darker. But the reflections will be greatly reduced by the CPL.
