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.

Good value camera

Very easy to set up. Great that it’s such a low profile camera and has good image for the price. Easy to connect to app and use. So far no complaints and would buy other Thinkware stuff.

Good image quality, Wifi connection is inconsistant at best and the UI is terrible.

I'm very disappointed in the FA200. I was looking for a compact 2CH WiFi camera with parking mode and an adhesive mount that was under $300. The FA200 seemed to fit the bill nicely.

The setup out of the box was straight forward. The hardwire kit is a little short, but was easy to install once a suitable location was found. The compact size is very nice and the rear camera was easy to install with the long cable provided. After aiming the cameras and getting all set up in the app, everything seemed ok until it came to using my phone to playback videos.

The WiFi connection must be manually initiated every single time, and almost always takes multiple attempts to get it to work (typically taking 2-5 minutes). After a little over a week, sometimes the wifi network does not connect at all, saying "incorrect password" or "unable to join network", and the power cable must be removed from the camera to reset it. The rest of the time, it will at random, disconnect from the phone and require the process to start all over again. It also will not maintain connection throughout a trip, but that seems to be by design.

The app does not show thumbnails of videos, only a date and time stamp. to make this matter worse, the only option for loop recording time is 60 seconds, so if you want to find a specific moment in your trip that did not cause an incident tag, be prepared to download multiple 80MB (typical front camera file size) files to your phone (over a slow connection) just to locate it. If you manage to get through all this and find the file you want, the video and audio quality is pretty good.

These all seem like issues that could likely be fixed with a firmware and app update, but until that happens, I will regret buying this dashcam.

Overall, I would not recommend this camera and I have my reservations about purchasing another Thinkware product.

BlackBoxMyCar was excellent, The camera was well packaged and shipped out quickly.
