    Mine awakes on bump. While not perfect you see the guy leave the scene so he’s fucked

    Every time I look at dash cams, I see reviews where people say the sun absolutely kills them. I park in the garage all night. Truck is stored out of the sun as much as possible, but it sits in the parking lot at work for 10 hours a day. I do think they're really valuable, but I don't want to drop $250 for it to die in 6 months. Maybe this isn't as common as what I read?

    I park my Thinkware outside in the triple digits here in Las Vegas and only have had one heat related shutdown. It was 115 degrees that day.

    I have the Thinkware f700 with Parkmode on bump in my Charger and for work I had to leave the car sometimes up to three weeks unmoved in my garage or the airport parkinglot. Never failed to start and the battery is already 6 years old.

    Doesn't always record, can't keep the time stamp. but mostly it will go long periods without actually saving the video. like weeks.

    Thx. I assume you tested out formatting the sd card, and trying a new card as I think mine came with the kind not meant for continuous read/write.

    For those who lives in a warm climate, I'd suggest getting a dash cam with a capacitor instead of a battery. They can handle extreme heat.

    I have one, I like the fact that i can tap into it anytime i want with the LTE service. No back camera tho only bummer with rear ends but the functionality is great. You start off with 60 credits and every credit in 1 minute if you wanna tap into it from LTE service. But you get notifications with any movement or anything going on with view of the camera, so i never really tap into it unless there was a damage or break in alert. real simple to set up aswell

    Glad your wife is okay! Do you know if you would still be able to request diminish value if a police report was not filed? I was recently in a rear end collision too where a guy backed into me while I was going straight. We only did an info exchange and I filed a claim with his insurance. But the damage looks like it's already going to be more than 1k because he took out my BSM, tail lights and smashed in the bed =( .
