HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO QUALITY
Equipped with CMOS Image Sensors, this lets you record crisp and clear full 1080p HD front and rear cam videos be it day or night time. It sports a 144-degree front & 160-degree rear wide angle lens view that minimises blind spots around the vehicle.
Equipped with an input for a second camera, this can take your surveillance capabilities to the next tier. Just add in the F790RC 1080P HD rear camera to the mix to get peace of mind across the board, as doing will record what’s happening behind your vehicle. Available as an optional extra for the single camera models, included in the 2 channel kits.
MOUNTING SOLUTION WITH SLEEK DESIGN
The Thinkware Dash Cam “PLUGIN” mounting system offers a simple solution for mounting and dismounting your dash cam.
The GPS receiver and all cable connections are integrated into the adhesive mounting bracket.
The cable connecting the power and rear camera is a single lead coming out of the back of the cradle, making for a more permanent and professional installation.
*Take caution when unplugging the dash cam main unit from the connecting mechanism as it is tightly fastened onto the main unit.
**Do not twist the dash cam main unit as this may cause damage to the connecting mechanism.
STATE-OF-THE-ART VIDEO ENHANCEMENTS
High Dynamic Range
HDR (High Dynamic Range) multi-exposure captures maximum image detail in high contrast scenes and corrects exposure levels when a subject is too dark or too bright. Such scenes include challenging low-light conditions when you want to capture license plates against the reflection of bright LED headlights.
Night Time Picture Quality Correction
Images from videos recorded at night on poorly-lit avenues, streets or roads generally don’t look that lucid. But with this, it’s an entirely different story. It’s armed with enhancement sensors that make brightness, colour and noise cancellation controls possible each time; hence, vivid video recordings of your evening drive.
A sudden rise of light exposure brought about by intense sunlight or headlight beams from oncoming vehicles, or poor lighting in a tunnel may give any ordinary dash cam trouble capturing clear images but not THINKWARE dash cams. They come with an automatic light exposure function that controls light exposure levels for crisp footage at all times.
SUPER NIGHT VISION 3.0
SUPER NIGHT VISION 3.0 uses a combination of low-light recording technology and High Dynamic Range to improve night time performance. The F790 can handle low-light environments, such as dark alleys or parking lots, and even lens flare effects and that affect night time footage. Together with Image Signal Processing (ISP) technology, the F790 can record a clear, visible videos in any situation- while driving or parked.
Dewarping technology allows the F790’s front camera to deliver a close-to-real picture of the vehicle’s front view with minimal distortion. The F790 can analyze incoming video frames and tune the video to show an accurate representation of the road without distortions.
ENERGY SAVE & TIME LAPSE PARK MODES
Energy Save Park Mode will reduce power consumption by 1/3 less, while giving you as much as 3x longer video recording capability compared to standard parking mode. When you are away for vacation or leaving your car for a long period of time, Energy Save Parking Mode is the recommended solution.
Important clips may get deleted due to insufficient memory space during long continuous recordings, especially in standard parking mode. Time Lapse Mode records 2 frames per second reducing the overall size of the video file. This allows video recordings in parking mode to continue up to 16 times longer compared to other dash cams.
*Dash cam must be hardwired to the vehicle with the included hard wire kit to enable park modes.
SMARTPHONE APP CONNECTIVITY

BEST SIGNAL RANGE
VIA DUAL BAND WI-FI
The F790 has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, supporting both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bandwidths.
Dual-band wireless technology enables the best connectivity experience in different environments.
2.4GHz has a longer range and can be captured from a farther distance. The longer range network also captures other devices thus preferred in undisrupted environments.
5GHz has a shorter range and can offer better performance with a higher bandwidth. The shorter range network avoids interferences thus preferred for a less congestive experience within shorter distances.
*Download speed and connection experience can differ according to smartphone specifications and telecommunications conditions.
**5GHz band may be more suitable for busy and densely populated cities due to possible disruptions in telecommunications environments.
ADVANCED DRIVER ALERT SYSTEM (ADAS)
Lane Departure Warning System
Designed for distracted or drowsey drivers, the dash cam will alert you as soon as it senses you’re vehicle leaving the lane while driving at a speed of over 50 kilometres per hour. LDWS alerts you when leaving your lane to help keep any road misfortunes from ruining your trip or compromising you and your passengers’ safety.
FCWS / uFCWS
Forward Collision Warning System
Keep a safe distance from the vehicle you’re following with the help of FCWS / uFCWS. Equipped with a state-of-the-art road safety warning system, it calculates the real-time distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you at a speed of over 30 kilometres per hour (km/h) on highways and under 30 km/h in a busy, congested city. This dash cam issues a three-level early warning to the driver, depending on the danger of the possible collision.
Front Vehicle Departure Warning
When stopped at an intersection or a traffic jam, this dash cam’s Front Vehicle Departure Warning (FVDW) intelligent guidance system lets you know when the vehicle in front of you has already started moving, helping you stay attentive each time.
COMPREHENSIVE DRIVING INFORMATION WITH GPS
Using the GPS data can precisely pinpoint the vehicle’s location and routes with its driving speed on the map on video playback. 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 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.
RED LIGHT & SPEED CAMERA
This dash cam comes with various Safety Camera Alert functions aimed at helping drivers abide by traffic rules and regulations to avoid getting ticketed for an infraction. Through the built-in GPS, it lets a driver know about a designated average speed camera & mobile speed zones and notifies drivers of upcoming fixed red-light and speed cameras.
The Thinkware Dash Cam F790 has a powerful 1GHz Quad-Core Cortex-A53 CPU manufactured by Ambarella,
commonly used in next generation drones and sports cameras. The extremely low power consumption
and significant processing power enable a small form factor design along with the ability to process multiple tasks
and extend battery life.This ensures the F790 runs smoothly without freezing
or crashing while offering leading video features at the same time.
VIDEO CODING FORMAT
High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC) compresses high-resolution videos by streaming at low bit rates to minimize storage costs.
HEVC has a compression rate of 1.7 times higher than the standard Advanced Video Coding format in dash cams.
Hence, you get outstanding video quality with less consumption of memory space.
Like all THINKWARE dash cams, it has a built-in thermal sensor that protects it from getting hounded by the intense heat. Clad in a specially-designed heat discharge construction, the sensor automatically shuts it down to prevent overheating, allowing the dash cam to thrive even in the harshest Australian weather conditions.
Format-free 2.0 Technology helps extend your memory card’s shelf life. Since this dash cam utilises the File Allocation Table (FAT) system, there’s no need for you to keep on formatting the card manually. Why? Because this mechanism automatically deletes older and less important files in the memory.
PROPRIETARY THINKWARE DASH CAM
The intuitive and simple-to-use interface of THINKWARE DASH CAM allows you an easy and convenient viewing of your recorded videos. Through PC or Mac viewer, you can playback and download recorded videos along with your route history and speed record. You can also change the dash cam settings, format the memory card, or install updates with just a few clicks on the viewer.
