From Lyft to Uber to Hitch, rideshare drivers are protected in many ways with a dash cam equipped in their vehicles. Not only are dash cams useful for recording what happens on the road, but also from inside the vehicle cabin. While we previously offered rideshare bundles with the BlackVue DR650S-2CH IR as well as Thinkware F770-2CH IR, a lot of our customers wanted something that was more affordable. We’re happy to fill this request and introduce the Thinkware F100-2CH IR.
The Thinkware F100-2CH IR is the most affordable infrared dash cam that we carry. Featuring a Sony Exmor Cmos front sensor, the Thinkware F100 dash cam is capable of capturing reasonably good video quality for its price point. Unlike many other affordable dash cams, Thinkware has also included some high-end components inside this neat little camera. Starting with the use of capacitors instead of batteries, the F100 has a higher heat tolerance which allows for improved durability.
The infrared second channel is the primary advantage of this dash cam as this allows vehicle interior recording, especially during night time driving, and is essential for both the safety of the driver as well as the passengers on board. This specialty designed camera emits infrared lights that are invisible to the naked eye, but which give the camera outstanding night vision capabilities, so even in total darkness, the camera is still able to make out fine details.
Just like the more expensive Thinkware models, the F100 has parking mode activated by motion detection or impact detection. When hardwired into the vehicle, this dash cam can record motion as well as a shock to protect your vehicle further even if you’re away from it. As always if you're unsure which dashcam is right for you please feel free to contact us here.
