Parking Surveillance Re-Imagined
4K UHD Video Quality with Sony STARVIS 2
The U3000 delivers improved 4K recording performance compared to the U1000, thanks to Sony’s new STARVIS 2 image sensor and a more powerful Ambarella CPU. The addition of an adjustable bitrate offers the flexibility to record sharper footage.
Parking Surveillance Mode
Enjoy parking protection against potential mishaps and hit-and-runs by capturing footage when an impact or motion is detected (hardwiring cable or OBD-II cable required; hardwiring cable and OBD-II cable sold separately). You can also tailor the U3000’s Parking mode based on your surveillance needs by choosing from Motion Detection, Time Lapse, Energy Saving Parking mode, or the new Radar Parking mode.
New Radar Parking Mode with Built-in Radar
Radar Parking mode is a low-powered recording mode that utilizes the U3000’s built-in radar to monitor motion with minimal power consumption (requires hardwiring or OBD-II cable). This allows for longer buffered parking surveillance so you also have footage of events leading to an incident. When a motion or impact is detected, the U3000 will save a 20-sec video clip.
Motion Detection Parking mode saves a 20-sec video clip after a motion or impact has been detected (10s before and 10s after the event)
Time Lapse Parking mode records footage at 2fps, enabling the dash cam to continuously record long periods of parking surveillance without increasing power consumption
Energy Saving 2.0
Energy Saving Parking mode saves a 20-sec video clip only after an impact has been detected (20s immediately after the event), allowing the U3000 to reduce its power consumption and remain in Parking mode for a longer duration
Note: Thinkware CONNECTED features are unavailable in Energy Saving Mode as all network data functions are turned off to reduce power consumption.
Smart Parking Mode
This safety feature prevents heat-related damage by automatically switching the U3000 to a low-power mode if the temperature inside the vehicle gets too high during Parking mode. In this state, the dash cam records incidents triggered by impacts only until its operating temperature is safe again to resume Motion Detection or Timelapse Parking mode.
Easy Wi-Fi Device Pairing
Convenient control, efficient video download and real-time view all through one app. Get it now.
Enjoy the best connectivity in any environment with the U3000’s dual-band Wi-Fi. Your iOS or Android smartphone can be connected to either the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz bandwidth for faster file transfers.
Receive impact notifications or monitor remotely what’s happening around your vehicle via your smartphone with the Thinkware CONNECTED app*. When the U3000 is connected to the internet, the dedicated Thinkware CONNECTED app gives you access to the features below.*Connecting the dash cam to a mobile hotspot device or a Wi-Fi network with Internet access will consume data. Carrier/Service Provider charges may apply.
Super Night Vision 4.0
Super Night Vision 4.0 takes advantage of Sony STARVIS 2’s advances in high sensitivity and low noise technology to help the U3000 capture clearer footage in low-light conditions.
Wide Angle View without the Distortion
Get uncompromised video coverage with a 152-degree wide-angle view. Dewarping technology in both front and rear view cameras ensures that edge distortions typically occurring in footage filmed with a wide angle are kept to a minimum.
ADAS & Safety Camera Alert
Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) helps you stay safe on the road with alerts for lane departures, front vehicle departures, and potential forward/rear collisions. The built-in GPS antenna tracks the speed, time, and route history of your vehicle, and enables the dash cam to alert you of upcoming red light cameras and speed cameras too.Note: Rear camera required for Rear Collision Warning (sold separately)
Pair with iVolt Xtra External Battery
Get up to 20 days of Radar Parking mode by pairing the U3000 with the iVolt Xtra External Battery (sold separately). When connected to the battery, the U3000 will announce important information such as battery charge level and status, and unlock the ‘External Battery Saving’ setting. This feature allows the dash cam to automatically switch to Energy Saving mode and conserve power if the battery level falls below 20%.
Note: Time is based on ideal conditions. Actual run-time may vary.
