At this point might as well pay the few extra bucks for the f800pro that massdrop had recently or at Amazon right now
My camera died after a year. Thinkware says to contact Massdrop. Massdrop says their window to report an issue is 30 days. Unless you have a need to waste $300 do your shopping elsewhere.
@kstokley a question if I may - what's Massdrop's warranty arrangements on these? Particularly for overseas buyers - it's an attractive price for the full kit, but I'm worried about what happensd if something is faulty / goes wrong in 11 months time, etc.
I noted @KingMorde 's comment above, which points the responsibility for warranty at the retailer (Massdrop) and also the Thinkware site isn't particularly helpful with further warranty info.
Thanks!

In AU this kit (front + rear + hardwire + shipping) is at least ~US$570. Hence my interest, when MD has it for ~US$360 delivered!
Still scratching my head about how I can make use of the rear camera when they supplied a 0.5m long male-to-male micro usb cable...

Was the rear infrared camera supposed to ship with the 20ft long cable? How are we supposed to mount it in the rear? Looks like I got an interior camera, not a rear camera?
Why doesn't this drop have a Commit option? What happens if I join and the drop doesn't reach the 10 needed?

Nothing. It would get cancelled. Commit is only used when there are multiple price levels and you only want to go in if it reaches the lowest level.
Just wanted to let the community know I was super pumped this was being dropped at a reasonable price until I asked Thinkware about the warranty offered this was there reply.
Thank you for contacting Thinkware Dash Cam. We do not provided a manufacture warranty if you purchase form Massdrop. Please contact Massdrop for information on their warranty policies. You will have to inquire about warranty information from the re-seller. Please feel free to contact us again if you encounter any other issues. Kind regards, Customer Support

can someone answer this?
It doesn't matter because you would need proof of purchase like a receipt or invoice to prove you bought it from Best Buy. At least that has been my experience with every RMA process I have ever done.
Can anyone confirm that the rear camera USB cable (in this drop) has a right angled connector on one end. Otherwise, the port cover on the front camera won't close. (Not a big deal, but still nice)
OneLove
Those ordering the regular rear camera will have a right angle tip connector so the port cover clsoes properly. Those ordering the infrared rear camera will have a straight tip connector.
surprised the response is not better, considering the price drop on this.

Amazon is 399$ The drop is 344$
So yea this is a way better deal
Nice! A good deal on the camera! Looks like Ill be able to save abouut 60$ with this. I've been waiting for this camera.
If you guys go to blackboxmycar they have bundle going on for $449 which includes a 128gb card. Go save money, a better deal and faster shipping time.

+1 Tim, Thank you, it seems like the difference between buying one here is saving like $30 before shipping vs. buying thru BlackBoxMyCar that offer their support. I'd rather pay the $30 for support
I had just bought this product on Amazon from BlackboxMyCar, it's cheaper on Amazon, faster shipping, and no tax if you're in California. Not sure if they charge tax here.
Sushh
In California MD charges tax.
With the rear camera and hardwire kit, this is literally cheaper on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/THINKWARE-2-Channel-Sensor-Built-Vision/dp/B01IUNP8S2

I agree! I was looking into this camera and I even requested a drop thinking it would be a better deal on here than amazon. I guess I was wrong. If you get everything the amazon deal gives you on massdrop it totals to about $407. Why would anyone pay $7 more and wait 4 weeks?

Make sure you spend the extra dollars on a CellinkB battery backup. The battery will feed the dash camera when the ignition is ON (continuous mode) and OFF (parking mode) and it should only charge when the ignition is ON. Save your main battery from harm.

If it draws power it will place a "burden" on the battery. No power management can change that. Power management only cuts the cam off when volts gets below a set point. The backup battery completely removes that and last much longer.

Yeah i know that, nothing new there
I got mine a few weeks ago. Amazing camera! Let me know if you have questions. A good reliable replacement for my faulty Panorama X2. The recommended memory for this camera is Lexar 633x. I am using a 128GB in mine and it works fine. (documentation states 64GB max support)

How do you install these?
Rasket
Typically by gluing a mounting plate to the windshield up top, say, behind the rear view mirror. Power then comes from a 12V power outlet like the cigarette lighter, or you can possibly modify it to hook directly into a switched 12V power supply. Mine, which isa different model, is powered from my rear view mirror, which prevents long cable runs.
Rasket
Use double sided tape to mount it to the windshield, in no case use any glue.... GLue will crack your windshield
