Capturing video in extreme low-light conditions such as dimly lit parking lots and streets often results in recording of poor quality video or in many cases, complete darkness.
The Super Night Vision, proprietary night vision video processing technology by Thinkware dash cam, achieves impressive high-sensitivity performance increasing the brightness levels up to 1000% during nighttime with reduced noise in low-light conditions by taking advantage of new image signal processing (ISP) technology.
Parking Mode feature allows you to leave your car and be sure the dash cam will provide surveillance for the vehicle while you are away. The new Time Lapse feature takes parking mode a step further, providing improved coverage by recording for extended period of time compared to existing parking mode.
Recording at 1 frame per second, the time lapse feature enables the dash cam to record parking mode videos 16 times longer than the regular parking mode by reducing video file size.
This feature also allows video playback at 15x speed, reducing viewing time to scan through many hours of video footage.
SAFE ON THE ROAD
The Thinkware Dash Cam X550 is equipped with the Road Safety Warning System that provides audio and visual alerts for Lane Departure (LDWS), Front Collision (FCWS) and Front Vehicle Departure (FVDW). It detects road markings and gives voice warnings to the drivers if the vehicle begins to stray from its lane or when it is at risk of an imminent crash.
Such advanced technology that once could only be seen in the best luxury sedans is now available in our dash cams to provide convenience and safety while aiding drivers on the road:
Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW)
Inform drivers when vehicle ahead is moving off
Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)
Alert drivers when vehicle strays out of lane
Front Collision Warning System (FCWS)
Alert drivers when approaching too
closely to the vehicle ahead to avoid collision

Using the hard wiring power cable, which is directly connected to the car power system, you can automatically switch between the continuous recording mode and the parking mode without turning the power on/off.
AUTOMATIC SWITCHING BETWEEN PARKING MODE AND CONTINUOUS MODE
After the ignition is turned off, the dash cam automatically switches to parking surveillance mode. While the dash cam is in parking surveillance mode, a combination of motion detection recording and incident recording is maintained to keep watch over your vehicle. When you start the engine, the dash cam will automatically switch back to continuous recording mode.
* The optional hardwiring cable supports automatic switching to the parking mode and motion detection recording function.
EASY INSTALLATION AND USAGE
Anyone can activate and control the THINKWARE Dash Cam X550 easily with a few simple buttons and cable connection ports.
Even if you are a first time user, you will not face any problem with installation and understanding the controls.
EASY MOUNTING AND FIRM FIXING
Use the 3M tape to easily mount the Dash Cam. The rear camera can rotate up to 360 degrees and easily be installed, regardless of the vehicle model or interior items (indoor curtains, etc.)
* Advantages of the 3M tape
The camera may vibrate when using a suction cup, but when using a 3M tape, it firmly secures the camera to the screen so no vibration is generated. While a suction cup can be obstructive and block the driver’s view, the 3M tape is highly discreet, providing you with an unobstructed clear view. When the car faces impact, the suction cup may move; however, 3M tape firmly attaches to the screen regardless of impact, low or high temperature. While minimizing reflections from the car window, the 3M tape allows users to firmly attach it to their desired spot.
AUTOMATIC TEMPERATURE SENSITIVE SHUTDOWN PROTECTION
Specially designed heat-discharging structure and high-temperature-blocking functions safely protect the product and its images stored under the strong sunlight. If the temperature rises and exceeds a certain level, the SELF-PROTECTION SHUTDOWN function will automatically switch off the device to protect the stored videos.
SECURE FAIL-SAFE RECORDING
Even if the power is automatically turned off, the recorded video is safely saved. If the power is turned off accidentally due to a car accident or malfunction; or if the power supply to the dash cam is blocked, you can use the FAIL-SAFE RECORDING to safely preserve the videos being recorded. Now, even if the dash cam power is turned off accidently, you can still safely view the recorded video.
