Voice Recording: Enabled - The Thinkware F70 Pro comes equipped with a built-in microphone for recording audio in the cabin. We recommend turning this on for security purposes, especially when you’re sharing a ride. However, if you live in an area where audio recording is prohibited, you can have this setting disabled. You can also easily turn on and off the audio of the voice recording by holding down the record button for 3 seconds. Be careful not to hold down the record button for 5 seconds, which will format the card.
Set Privacy Recording: Disabled - This is a new feature that constantly wipes the SD card for your privacy, constantly looping over existing footage and storing only a limited-time backlog. If you want to enable this, you can choose between 1 min, 2 min, 3 min, and G-Shock options which only saves impacts. Files will be saved that long after being recorded, and cleared afterwards.
Continuous Mode Incident Recording Sensitivity: Mid. If your vehicle rides pretty low, and you can feel most bumps on the road, then consider turning the sensitivity down.
Parking Mode: Motion Detection – although if you leave your dash cam for a long time, you can also activate Energy Saving mode.
When activated, Thinkware’s Energy Saving Parking mode saves a 20-sec video clip only after an impact has been detected.
Parking Mode Waiting Time: 30 seconds. This is a new option to enable a short boot delay when switching from normal recording to parking mode.
Smart Parking Rec: Enabled, for thermal protection and external battery protection. When enabled, this setting prevents heat-related damage by automatically switching to a low-power mode if the temperature inside the vehicle gets too high during parking surveillance.
Impact Sensitivity in Parking Mode: Mid
Motion Detection Sensitivity: Mid
Battery Protection: Enabled. This enables the cutoff options below.
Off Timer: Depends on your preference - the Thinkware F70 Pro has a built-in voltage monitor, and this option is more of a backup. With this setting, you can set a timer so that your dash cam will turn off after a specific duration of parking mode or the voltage cutoff, whichever comes first. To turn off the off timer, select Disabled.
Vehicle Type: Choose whether you’re using a regular car, a hybrid car, or an electric car
Battery Cutoff Voltage: 12V. 12V is an average voltage cut-off which will work for the large majority of vehicles. If you are concerned about the health of your car battery, you can set a higher cut-off, if you are not concerned you can set a lower cut-off.
Wintertime Battery Protection: November, December, January
To activate parking surveillance mode, do note that the Thinkware F70 Pro needs to be hardwired via hardwiring kit, or through an OBD power cable.
