As a new addition to its U-series dash cam line, the U3000 offers advanced features and increased compatibility. Starting from June 2nd, the U3000 will be available in the North American market.

It is designed to provide high definition video recording for both day and night driving. The U3000 is available in two options: a single front camera or a front/rear camera bundle. The front camera of the U3000 offers 4K ultra high definition video, and the rear camera offers 2K video resolution. To enhance the quality of the video footage during night driving, the U3000 is first to come equipped with Super Night Vision 4.0, specifically designed for low light conditions.

The U3000 is also the company’s first dash cam to include built-in radar for both its front and rear cameras. With the latest in radar technology now standard, drivers can now capture video footage before an impact occurs, while consuming minimal power. In addition to radar, the U3000 is also equipped with built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, which enhances its compatibility with other devices.

Other notable features of the U3000 include:

In low-power recording scenarios, this innovative feature enables the dash cam to detect the presence of vehicles or pedestrians. Once detected, it immediately activates, initiating motion recording without delay. With five adjustable sensitivity levels, you have the flexibility to customize the detection range according to your preferences, ranging from a minimum of 1 meter to a maximum of 5 meters.
