We can still fondly remember the feeling when we first made the Thinkware U1000 dash cam available in BlackboxMyCar. It was late 2019, and the moment it hit the shelves, this dash cam took the whole industry by storm! The U1000 has definitely become our chart-topper, naming it as the best dash cam for its 4K capabilities, Thinkware Cloud features, and intelligent parking mode solutions, and more features that no other dash cam can offer.
In fact, while dash cams have come and gone, the Thinkware U1000 remained our favorite (and our best-seller) for years - until last year. Even when BlackVue released the 2023 DR970X series, we can’t deny that we still found the U1000 a worthy contender despite it being four years older.
Now, in the second quarter of 2023, Thinkware announced that they will be launching the successor of the reigning U1000. Designed with smarter features, and a cutting-edge image sensor, the South Korean brand is all set to roll out the all-new Thinkware U3000.
We, ourselves, are lucky to have put this dash cam to a test. There are a lot of functions which we are excited to tell you about in our in-depth reviews, but for now, let’s take a look at the fresh features that make this stellar dash cam brighter than the U1000, and brightest among the rest.
