THINKWARE’s X500 dash camera

thinkware-x500A dash cam may seem kind of superfluous at first, but it can come in very handy. In the end, I think you’ll agree that it’s a good investment, and when you invest in something, you want high quality and a warranty to back it up. That’s what THINKWARE offers with their X500 dash cam.

Of course, as with most things, there are positive and negative connotations. The first thing that pops into my mind when I think of a dash cam is a wreck. Call me pessimistic, but I’ve witnessed too many, and sad to say, been in a few. There’s always the dispute of fault. A dash cam can help resolve disputes whether you’re a witness or involved. You don’t even have to turn it on. With it’s 1080p Sony Exmor motion detector, it can easily sense a collision. The X500 dash cam constantly records while the car is moving, but if it senses a collision, it’s fail-safe recording feature will instantly start saving footage to the memory card (including 10 seconds before hand). To me, this brings peace of mind. Also helpful in the event of an accident are it’s wide view angle, high resolution video, and anti-vibration mounting.

Another protection feature it has is its parking surveillance mode which records any motion detected in front of the camera. It also has a built-in GPS. These may help you in identifying a culprit of theft or attempted theft involving your vehicle. It even has security LED lights that might deter a potential burglar. Again, you don’t have to worry about turning it on or off as it automatically switches between parking mode and continuous recording mode, which occurs during driving.

Now on to more positive thoughts. Using the X500 dash cam can help you capture memorable road trips or family adventures. Not only does it have high quality video recording, but it also records audio. Come on, you know you want to capture all the times the kids said, “Are we there yet?” or how many “bottles” were taken “off the wall!”

A few last details include the X500’s manual recording option, ability to view recordings on your computer or smart phone, and automatic shut down for protection against over heating due to extremely high temperatures. All in all, THINKWARE’s X500 dash cam would make a great gift for yourself or someone else!
