The 140° viewing angle ensures the camera captures an extensive view of the road ahead.The sample video provides an indication of what the video will look like, be aware that YouTube compression can decrease the video quality so make sure that you have it set to the highest resolution.
F770 Recording Modes
Continuous Recording– The F770 will begin recording automatically when the engine is switched on and will continue in this mode during normal driving conditions.
Event Recording– If the G-Shock sensor is triggered a 10 second pre and post-impact video clip is saved providing a 20 second clip of the entire event.
Manual recording– When the REC button is pressed a manual event is created saving the previous 10 seconds and following 50 seconds of footage.
Parked Mode– The camera records when the vehicle has been stationary for longer than five minutes and the camera has been hardwired into the vehicle.
Parked Recording Mode
The Thinkware F770-1Ch has a brand new parking mode, which now consists of two settings Time-Lapse and motion detection. Please note that you can only have one of these modes active at the same time.
Time-lapse– The F770 will record at 1fps when the vehicle is parked, this means you’ll be collecting crisp clear video many hours after leaving the vehicle. If the G-shock sensor is triggered a 6 minute 30fps video file will be created showing 3 minutes before and after the incident.
Motion Detection– The F770 will only record footage if it detects movement near the vehicle then a 20 second video clip will be created showing the 10 seconds before and after the movement was detected, the same will happen if an impact is detected.

The Thinkware F770-1Ch has two advanced warning systems, Lane departure warning system (LDWS) and Forward collision warning system (FCWS). For these features to be used the GPS needs to be working on the camera and the vehicle must be travelling a minimum of 30 MPH. These warning systems are optional and can be disabled in the settings menu of the Thinkware app.
LDWS- When the vehicle is leaving its lane an audible warning will be issued to notify the driver.
FCWS- This notifies the driver through an audible warning that the vehicle in front is slowing down or stopped to ensure that you do not have a rear-end collision.
