Thinkware’s F200 Pro is the slimmest, least dash-cam-like dash cam we’ve ever tested. That’s a very good thing if you don’t want people to know you’re recording, or simply want to remove it from your own view behind the rear-view mirror. Beyond that, it’s one heck of product, worth the slight premium over rock-bottom budget models.
Design and features
The dual-channel F200 Pro is available in three configurations: the front dash cam alone (w/16GB SD Card) for $140 on Amazon , a bundle with the rear camera (an $80 module separately) and a 32GB SD card for $200 on Amazon, and the bundle plus an external GPS module for $230 (including a 32GB SD card). Thinkware didn’t send me the latter modules for testing, but judging from my previous Thinkware experiences, they’re likely top-notch.
The primary reason the F200 Pro manages such a tiny profile (approximately four inches wide by one inch thick, and just under two inches tall) is that there’s no display. All configuration and control are done via the Thinkware phone app. Thinkware has gone display-less before with its dash cams, but until the F200, it never resulted in such a severe reduction in size. As small as it is, the dash cam runs only slightly warm to the touch, so good job on the shrink job, Thinkware.
The F200 Pro takes 1080p/30-fps front video with a wide 140-degree field of view. The rear module captures video at the same resolution, with a wider 160-degree field of view.
