Thinkware TW-X500 Dashboard Camera




THINKWARE TW-X500/2C Dashboard Camera Overview

Many of us drive and for all different reasons. Some of us will commute, others will jump in their car for a quick run down the shops or to see friends and some will do both plus explore new and exciting places near and far. What we all have in common when we get behind the wheel is we just don't know what is going to happen. We may see an asteroid plummeting to earth, we could even catch someone doing something utterly crazy but what a Dashboard Camera could provide is vital evidence in an accident.

There are scams out there, crash for cash and flash for cash are both used by fraudsters to cause an accident. In 2013 it was estimated that crash scams cost £392m annually* and that was all money from accidents being caused on purpose. It isn't just scams that a dashcam can capture evidence of. If there is an incident in front of you your camera could provide a picture to the authorities as to what happened before the lead up to an incident.

Another way of looking at why you should get a Dash Cam is your own driving. It could go a long way to making you more aware of how you drive, reduce stress and provide assurance that if something does happen, a driver jumps the red light and hits your car for example, you have the footage to pass over to your insurance company thus making claims even easier and quicker.

On the move or parked up the TW-X500/2C Dashboard Camera offers a host of recording options. When hard wired as soon as you turn the engine on the camera comes to life and will go in to parked mode when the engine stops. Parking mode will help record any incidents when you leave your car parked at the supermarket, this could be someone reversing in to your car. If you opt for the TW-X5002C you can also have a view as to what is going on to the rear. Rear collisions at traffic lights, moving away from junctions or anyone else rear ending your vehicle.

Combined with the built in accelerometer G-sensor comes the ability to measure acceleration and in the event that you are involved in a collision you can give exact speed, direction of impact and location.

The TW-X500/2C Dashboard Camera offers continuous updates on the location of speed cameras, red light and average speed checks that prompts you to check your speed helping you keep safe and inside the law. A voice guidance system will prompt you to the location via a two-step alert with the distance to the camera and then when you reach it.
