FAQ

What is a dash cam?

A dash cam stands for a dashboard camera that is mounted inside the vehicle, usually on the front windshield. A dash cam, depending on the model, can do many things such as record both when the vehicle is being driven and when it’s parked, record audio, provide a connection to a smartphone app so that video can be reviewed and saved on the spot, etc.

What is an IR dash cam?

An IR dash cam is a dash cam with infrared lights that provide recording details under poorly-lit conditions, as well as total darkness. These are dual-channel dash cam setups with a regular front-facing unit and a secondary unit that comes with infrared lights.

The secondary unit is typically mounted to face and record the interior of the vehicle, and thus is especially recommended for rideshare users, such as for Uber and Lyft, or for commercial use, such as fleet managers.

Why buy a premium dash cam?

There are a few reasons as to why this is the case, and these reasons make a huge difference. Learn more about premium features including design, parking mode, smartphone integration, 4K UHD video resolution, g-force, ADAS, memory card storage and more.

What is parking mode?

Parking mode recording is a feature of a dash cam that keeps your dash cam recording footage even when the vehicle is off. Typically found only in premium dash cams, parking mode provides around-the-clock protection and surveillance for the vehicle.

What is Wi-Fi & GPS?

The wi-fi feature in a dash cam is what allows a smartphone to be paired to the dash cams. Unlike a regular wi-fi network signal that gives you internet access, the purpose here is just to connect the dash cam and smartphone together.

The GPS feature in a dash cam shows the vehicle’s speed and, for some models, the location of the vehicle with Google Maps integration.

Great product … great service!

I recently purchased a U1000 and I am so glad that I decided to buy it at BlackBoxMyCar in Richmond BC. Even though I live in Kelowna BC, I received enough information (by email and on the phone with Zaib) to make my selection and book a time for installation when I was passing through Vancouver WEEKS later. I waited a few weeks after installation to write this review, but only because I wanted time to watch a good amount of footage and make sure their product was delivering the information I might need in case of an accident. It was and is amazing; their phone-in help-line walked me through a couple of technical issues in order to allow me to watch the footage on my MacBook! They could not have been more patient with me, a complete technophobe … who relies on good service and good products to make her way through this brave new world. Thank you to everyone at BBMC … and don’t forget to stop for tea/lunch at the amazing La Cuisson Cafe next door!

Hi Debra, thank you for leaving a review and for shopping at BlackboxMyCar. Thank you for coming all the way from Kelowna - we understand that it's a long 4+ hour drive, but we're glad to hear that it was worth it for you! Hope you love your dash cam as much as we do! We will pass on your compliments to Zaid :) Please don't hesitate to reach out to us in the future if you have any more questions.

Great feature rich dash cam.

Bought the dual-channel and it came with all the wiring harnesses I needed to complete the install. The U1000 is very feature rich and the picture quality is very good. Produces large files, but that's to be expected for a 4k+2k camera. Shipping was very quick and I'm very happy with my purchase.

Hi Eric, thank you for leaving a review. We're glad to hear that you're loving the Thinkware U1000. They will definitely create large video files, so that's why we recommend using a larger size SD card. If you don't have one, do let us know and we can recommend a few for you!
