Thinkware U1000 RADAR

RADAR enables extended parking mode for the Thinkware U1000.

The Thinkware RADAR is an optional radar motion detection module designed to enhance the dash cam’s Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0 with ultra-high frequency radar motion detection and buffered recording.

*Energy Saving Parking Mode "Enabled" is required for RADAR motion detection.

When paired with a Cellink NEO Battery Pack, parking mode run-time can be extended to up to 170 hours (7 days).


Ultra High Frequency Radar

The Thinkware U1000 RADAR is designed to be used when the dash cam is on Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0.

*Energy Saving Parking Mode 2.0 is supported on the Thinkware U1000 dash cam.

When RADAR detects a moving object within the range, the dash cam will switch into Recording Standby Mode and impact detection is set for 30 seconds.

Energy Saving Mode 2.0

If an impact has been made within 30 seconds, the dash cam will save 20 seconds video of before and after the impact.

Without the RADAR, the Energy Saving Mode will trigger recording only after an impact has been made, leaving you without any pre-event evidence.

If no impact is detected within the 30-seconds, the dash cam will automatically switch back to Energy Saving mode and no recording is stored.


Cloud features will be temporarily disabled when the Thinkware U1000 dash cam is in Energy Saving Mode 2.0.

  • Radar motion detection requires optional module, and only enabled in energy saving mode.
  • Due to nature of the radar’s Ultra-high Frequency and the surroundings of vehicles, the distance and degree of detection may vary.
  • The radar is designed to detect sedan or larger sized vehicles. It may not detect smaller objects (such as people or bicycles).
  • To ensure proper functionality, please install Radar Sensor away from anything metallic or other sensors.

Well Worth the Money!!

I wanted to wait a few months to try out the Thinkware U1000 Radar Module before I wrote a review. The Radar Module is well worth the money. It works just as advertised. I've been able to review 2 "incident" online from when I was away from my vehicle! Thanks also to BlackBoxMyCar for their great review. It's the reason I purchased the module and it's already come in handy!!

Hi George, thanks for purchasing from us. Good to hear that the RADAR is working very well for you :) Come back anytime!
