Use THINKWARE DASH CAM to record special moments of your journey other than crucial moments during an incident.

Full HD recording in 30 stable frames allows you to capture the precise moment of vehicle accidents, or vandalism as well as hit and run incident during parking. It can also be used as a digital Action Cam to record extreme or leisurely activities from your vehicle such as racing on a track or going off-roading in the mountains

* THINKWARE DASH CAM™ X550's Full HD rear camera is sold separately.

You will encounter diverse conditions during your drive that may affect the quality of your recording such as direct headlight beams from an opposite vehicle, rapid change in light exposure going in and out of tunnels, weather changes and driving at night. The X550 has various image correction processes such as WDR, Super Night Vision, Smart AE and other functions that optimize image quality, ensuring clear and accurate footage under all circumstances.

WDR(Wide Dynamic Range)
When your vehicle is under direct sunlight, exiting from a tunnel, or overshadowed by high-rises etc., recorded videos can appear too dark or bright due to a sudden change in the level of light exposure. X550's WDR removes excessively bright spots from recorded videos and adjust their overall color balance to produce clearer images.

* The WDR can cause degradation in clarity while correcting the exposure. Please make sure to set it properly before use.

Super Night Vision(Nighttime Picture Quality Correction)

When recording with a dash cam in low light environments such as dark alleyways or underground parking lots, it can be difficult to accurately make out the images. X550 has the Super Night Vision as a default function, which removes static noise and adjusts brightness as well as colors at the sensor.

Smart AE (Automatic Exposure)

In moments when you are exposed to direct beams of light, it may be difficult to identify crucial aspects of your view such as a license plate, or the color of the opposing vehicle. The X550's Smart AE always ensures ideal exposure and superb image quality in any lighting conditions. This enables you to identify what you encountered from your recorded videos.

You can view or retrieve real-time as well as recorded videos, change the settings and format your memory card on the LCD screen of the DASH CAM. The 2.7 inch clear display allows you to perform these tasks in your car without having to connect to a PC, MAC or smart device. X550 display comes with optimal specifications for displaying
clear and sharp images.

The 2.4 million pixel high resolution SONY Exmor CMOS image sensor allows significant improvement in quality of not only nighttime but also daytime images. The X550 assures brighter and clearer resolution of all images captured.

The high quality lens of the DASH CAM can record 140 degrees of precise and vivid imagery with minimal to zero distortion. Both front and rearview DASH CAMs come with 140 degree lenses.

X550 utilizes the best CPU with the same high specification applied in sports cam for its smart performance. It minimizes power consumption while providing optimal performance. X550 is a globally competitive DASH CAM that reliably supports major functions such as Front/Rear Full HD Ultra-high Quality Recording, Dual Save, WDR, Super Night Vision, Smart AE and others.

Using the GPS data in X550, it can precisely pinpoint the vehicle's location and routes with its driving speed on the map. The GPS helps you accurately assess the status of the accident by providing you with the vehicle speed, the direction of the collision and the severity of the impact. The DASH CAM not only records driving footage but can also be used to track and recall past driving routes whether it be work or holiday routes.
* The X550 comes with built-in GPS.

Dual Save technology is specially designed to save recorded footage in both Micro SD and NAND Flash Memory when a certain level of impact is detected. This is particularly useful if the Micro SD card is removed or damaged due to the impact of a collision. Because the Dual Save Technology also saves footage in the NAND Flash Memory, there is no need to worry about it getting lost or damaged. You can review the video saved in the NAND Flash Memory immediately on the X550 Clear Display, or copy it to the Micro SD Card and check it on the PC or MAC viewer.

* Dual Save Technology is activated when specific level of impact is detected as long as it is connected to a power supply (The impact detection threshold can be adjusted according to user preference).

The X, Y, Z axes of the G sensor allow you to measure fluctuations in gravity, speed or rotation. You can figure out the axial movement and impact during an accident at a glance.

The intuitive and simple-to-use interface of THINKWARE DASH CAM allows you an easy and convenient viewing of your recorded videos. You can playback and download recorded videos along with your route history and speed record through the PC or Mac viewer. You can also change the dash cam settings, format the memory card, or install updates with just a few clicks on the viewer.

THINKWARE DASH CAM X550 supports various recording modes depending on the status of the vehicle whether it is in motion or parked (continuous recording, incident recording and motion detection recording). 
Using the hard wiring power cable, which is directly connected to the power system of vehicle, you can automatically switch between continuous recording mode and parking mode without turning the power on/off.

Continuous Recording
Continuous recording mode powers on automatically when you start the vehicle engine. The DASH CAM continuously stores all the footages as one-minute video files while you are driving. There is no need to charge or replace the battery.

Incident Recording
Using the gyro sensor, which is not included in Action Cam, the DASH CAM detects impacts to your car while driving or parking and record them separately. The camera constantly records images when your vehicle is in motion. It records and safely stores the footage from 10 seconds prior to the impact.

Motion Detection Recording
If an object passes in front of your vehicle, the DASH CAM automatically detects and starts recording the motion. Without additional changes to setting, human motion approaching the parked vehicle is detected and recorded automatically, protecting it from possible vandalism or theft.

Manual Recording
While driving or parking, press a button to immediately start manual recording. Use this feature to capture all significant moments such as a friendly deer approaching your car, or a dangerous road rage scenario as useful evidence.

Automatic Switching between Parking Mode and Continuous Mode
After the car engine stops, the DASH CAM assesses the voltage condition in the car and automatically switches to parking mode. In parking mode, motion detection recording is activated while incident recording is maintained. When you start the engine in parking mode, the DASH CAM automatically switches to continuous recording mode without a need to turn on the device.

* If you mount the continuous power cable, it supports automatic switching to parking mode and motion detection recording function.

THINKWARE DASH CAM allows you configure the default recording time frame. Depending on the battery condition and the weather, 
you can adjust it from 1 hour up to 48 hours, for needed protection of your car.

Installing the THINKWARE DASH CAM X550 involves simple connecting of a few connection ports and the pressing of a few buttons.
All necessary accessories are provided with intuitive instructions on their controls so you can be ready to go in no time.

Discreet and secure, the included 3M adhesive mount eliminates the need for a bulky suction cup mount and keeps a clear view while eradicating vibrations that cause blurry recordings.
* Advantages of the 3M tape
Compared to the suction cup mount, the 3M tape mount is easier to install allowing the device to be conveniently detached from and reattached to the mount. It has been proven to be the most secure method of DASH CAM installation.

Automatic Temperature Sensitive Shutdown Protection
Specially designed heat-discharging structure and high-temperature-blocking functions safely protect the device and its images stored under strong sunlight. In case the temperature rises beyond a certain level, the SELF-PROTECTION SHUTDOWN function switches off the device automatically to protect the stored video data.

In the event that the power gets disconnected after an accident, Fail-safe recording of the X550 uses the Super Capacitor for backup power to ensure safe storage of any recording in progress – so you can be assured your valuable data will be securely stored under any circumstance.
