In this dashcam installation photo gallery, we go over the final product of hardwiring the new dual-lens, 1080p front and rear Thinkware F800 Pro Dashcam in a beautiful Mercedes Benz E-Class.
This installation was performed by The Dashcam Store™ technicians. Please click here to book your own dashcam installation at The Dashcam Store™ in Austin, Texas.
The vehicle now protected with the "Dashcam Defense": 2018 Mercedes Benz E300 (W213). We're impressed with the design and overall quality of the Thinkware brand and the F800 Pro looks right at home in this high-end Mercedes.
Thank you again Mr. K. for allowing us to work on your sedan!
Looking in from the front, it's hard to notice there is a dashcam keeping watch. Do you see it?
From some angles and depending on the lighting conditions, the F800 Pro front camera can be extremely hard to spot (this is almost always a good thing!), as shown in the photo below:
Finally a close up shot of the Thinkware F800 Pro front-facing camera. Most people would be easily convinced this is something that is simply built-in to the Mercedes from the factory or the dealership. Inside the front camera is the memory card, GPS antenna, speaker, microphone, G-sensor and of course the forward-facing image sensor.
Now looking in from the passenger side window of this E300, we see the F800 Pro tucked up nicely below the existing Mercedes Benz safety sensor housing. The Thinkware dashcam does not affect any existing vehicle safety of assistance systems.
A closer look from the passenger side, you can see the F800 Pro power cable, video cable (for the rear camera) and buttons.
Once you're seated in the E300, the front camera is hidden almost entirely by the rear-view mirror. Pretty discreet right?
We've added an arrow to point out the front camera, only part of the bottom is visible.
From the driver seat, you'll be able to see the Thinkware status LED lights on the body of the F800 Pro.
Now looking back out the rear windshield, we find the rear-facing camera of the F800 Pro system. This camera is optional and can be added later to an already-installed F800 Pro.
Notice how compact the F800 Pro rear-facing camera is (it's about the size of a Chapstick). Definitely small enough not to interfere with your visibility out the rear of the vehicle!
From the outside, looking in at the F800 Pro rear camera. Not much to see there!
Here we've added an arrow to indicate the position of the F800 Pro rear-facing lens.
Additional shots of the Thinkware F800 Pro rear camera.
Even in the close-up shot, the rear camera is hard to spot.
Swinging back to the driver side of this E300, we see another close-up photo of the F800 Pro front camera.
Definitely a great-looking vehicle, and now it will be safe at all times on the road.
