Some use them to lower their insurance premiums. Others like peace of mind that they will have evidence in the event of an accident. And of course there are those that just want to be able to watch their drives.

Format Free Technology
Thinkware F100 utilises the TAT (Time Allocation Table) save system. This is different from the usual FAT (File Allocation Table) system. By using TAT, you can benefit from Thinkware’s Format Free Technology.
This eliminates the need for regular formatting of recorded video files from the SD card. Another benefit is files can be viewed on any PC without time-consuming conversion.
Autonomous Recording Modes
Continuous Recording Mode is activated automatically when you start the engine. Recorded videos are saved in one-minute segments with an auto-looping mechanism.
The Active Impact Monitoring System will automatically store video ten seconds prior to, and after, any collision registered by the 3-axis G-Sensor.
