A client from Maple Ridge recently visited Certified Autosound and Security to inquire about adding a dashcam to his 2018 Porsche Boxster. The client was interested in a high-quality solution that would record everything that happens in front of and behind the car while he’s driving. We showed the client several options from Thinkware and explained the performance and features of each solution. The client chose a top-of-the-line solution that offers excellent video quality.
Thinkware High-Resolution Dashcam
The Thinkware QA100 Elite dashcam that the client chose features a 2K QHD image sensor that records 2560 x 1440 pixels at 30 frames per second. The rear-facing camera uses a more conventional yet still impressive Full HD 1920 x 1080-pixel sensor. Both cameras have a 140-degree (measured diagonally) field of vision to ensure that vehicles or people approaching from the side of the car are captured in the recording.
Porsche Boxster Dashcam Installation
Our team of expert technicians started the installation by mounting the main camera on the windshield of the Boxster, just above the rearview mirror. They ran the wiring for the camera across the top of the windshield and concealed it behind the upper trim panel and behind the A-pillar as it extended down into the dash. They used a hardwire cable kit to integrate the camera into the wiring in the vehicle and eliminate the need to hide the large cigarette light power plug in the dash. This wiring solution makes it easy for the customer to choose whether the parking mode will be used, without the need to change any connections.
Vancouver’s Vehicle Safety System Experts
With the installation complete, our team finished the integration process by confirming that the camera was aimed properly and that the settings for the built-in 3-axis motion sensor were calibrated properly. After a final review of the video footage from the dashcam, we called the client to let him know that his Boxster was ready to go. A member of our team explained how the system works and helped him download and install the Thinkware app on his smartphone and connect it to the camera. The client was very happy with the installation and excited to see the video footage the camera records.
