Thinkware X800 Dash Cam + Multi Cam Installation
In this video, I install the newly released X800 Thiinkware dash cam along with 3 other cameras by utilizing the Thinkware multiplexer unit. With the multiplexor, you can install up to 4 additional cameras. I detail the installation into my 2018 Ram 3500 pickup truck, explain all the functions and settings via the X800 touchscreen, and show you some demo footage of the system in action. Demos include video in continuous driving mode with sound on, plus incident recording and parking timelapse footage.
Stay tuned; I'll come back in a few weeks with a full review of the system. More video footage and my likes and dislikes.

(Part 2) Full Review & Demo Video Footage
Update, I’m back after using the Thinkware model X800 system for about a month. Testing included an extended highway trip and around-town driving with no significant issues. Overall the system worked quite well.
In this video, I show some of the recorded footage and give you a side-by-side comparison with my previously reviewed Q800 Pro model. Then I’ll go over my list of pros & cons as I see them for the new X800 model plus the addon cameras and video multiplex system.
X800 model dash cam has a touch screen for playback and setup
X800 model is expandable for multi-cam operation up to 4 more
GPS addon worked well for speed and traffic camera alerts
Easy to install the multi-camera multiplexor system to add cameras
The parking monitor works well in both timelapse & motion detection modes
Good video resolution on front dash cam
Sleek-looking metal side cameras. Pleasing appearance.
The rear camera comes with plenty of cable 60M for long RV installations
Thinkware has USA/Canada online support & help videos
Multiplex camera video only 1/4 of the screen, so lower resolution
ADAS erratic except for lane departure warning
My rear infrared camera video was a little dark. No adjustment
Max parking mode time is 48 hours
Max micro SD card capacity 64GB
Truck Tool Box Power System Mod
This video shows how I have modded up a solar-powered battery and inverter installation in one of my truck tool boxes. Mostly I did it to power my Thinkware dash cams parking survivance mode power. But it will also be handy for other things like nighttime campsite rodent deterrent lights.
Last night's sunset images from my Thinkware multi-dashcam system. Had driven up to Buckeye, AZ, to pick up a new big upgrade for the old Keystone trailer. Gonna swap out our 11-year-old gas stovetop and oven for a new Furrion from Lippert. After 11 years of full-time, pretty well daily use, the old stove has seen better days.
On the way back, the sunset was an Arizona doozy.
