Thinkware has unveiled the start of a new series of dash cams, with what it claims to be its most compact model yet. The ARC is a dual-channel dashcam with front and rear cameras that both boast 2K video resolution with -  2560x1440 sensors that both record at 30fps. With both wide dynamic range (WDR) and Thinkware's latest Super Night Vision - the set-up promises to give you good results in the widest range of lighting conditions.

As well as offering a view of the road ahead and what is coming up behind you, the ARC offerings a range of features to keep an eye on your car even when you are not driving. The Parking Surveillance Mode does mean having to intall the kit professionally using the supplied hardwire kit... or if you prefer (and your vehicle supports it) you can use the optional OBD-II accessory and plug into the car's diagnostic port. The system can then record any movement or impact it detects when parked up - or create a timelapse recording at two frames per second.
