The best just got better with the new Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam. With an abundance of new features and world’s firsts, the 622GW is the most accurate, powerful and highest image quality Dash Cam in the market today. Ultra-clear 4K recording at 30fps captures those all-important finer details, with recording at 1440p HD at 60fps or 1080p HD at 120fps for super slow motion available. An improved sensor ensures enhanced night vision on even the darkest roads. Image quality is at the forefront of the Dash cam revolution, with Image stabilization reducing vibrations from your vehicle and improving footage clarity. Another first for Nextbase is Extreme Weather Mode, to provide a clearer image in misty conditions using special defogging algorithms, crucial for winter and night-time driving. The 622GW is the world’s first Dash Cam to include what3words. This provides your exact location to a 3m square location without the need for a data connection, crucial for emergency services to precisely locate you. Coupled with Emergency SOS and Alexa Built-In, the 622GW shows its further ahead the field with technology advancements. Increased connectivity for transferring footage to your mobile phone is key with new built-in Bluetooth 5.0 and Hyper-Sync Wi-Fi 5GHz speeds are up to 10x faster. This ensures syncing times with the MyNextbase Connect app (IoS 12.1 or later and Android 5.1 and up). The 622GW is compatible with any Nextbase Rear View Module, to offer-all around protection, whilst crucially maintaining front 4K image quality, with 1080p full HD rear recordings. The 622GW features all the much loved Nextbase features including Intelligent Parking Mode, high accuracy 10x GPS readings, a 3” HD IPS touch screen and the fully patented Click&Go PRO mount design, for the ultimate Dash Cam user experience. Note- For this product a U3 class Nextbase microSD card is required (Not included). The ability to maintain a high WRITE speed consistently is what Nextbase SD cards are designed to do better than any other SD card. Any drop/fluctuation in WRITE speed within the SD card causes the Dash Cam footage to buffer, and in some cases will stop the recording entirely. Our Nextbase SD card controller and Firmware on the SD card achieves the requirements from our Dash Cam, where other SD cards cannot. Due to the continuous recording and overwriting of the card, the SD card needs to be a high-endurance card, otherwise the card may develop faults after a period of time; if a lower-capability card is used, certain features on the camera will not fully function due to being unable to re-write and record. Nextbase has over 3 million dash cams sold, 115 unique patents, custom designed processors and improved sensors which record fast moving objects in perfect picture clarity for day and night time driving. Auto adjusts contrast and brightness to further improve the footage details in the event of an accident. Save time, money, and ease with Nextbase Dash Cams.

Dash Cam, Click&Go Pro Mount - Suction & Self Adhesive, USB Cable, 12/24V Power Adapter, Cable Fitting Tool, Window Sticker, Quick Start Guide
Having used and reviewed the Nextbase 422GW dashcam, I figured I’d give this one a try as well. One of the concerns I have was mounting compatibility between dashcams as well as power input/output. After finally receiving the 622GW, I was glad that they are compatible.
The dashcam came with the same necessities to mount it. The adhesive plate can be swapped and is compatible with other dashcam models. This is great as it allowed me to take the 422GW I used and swap it with the 622GW. The magnetic mount piece is also compatible but I have opted to use the included one to ensure no potential issue with installation and compatibility. Even the cigarette lighter power adapter has the same power output at 5 volt 1.5 amp. While I could easily reused the same magnetic mount and power cable, I have opted not to so I can be assured of no installation problem that may occur. The only piece used from the 422GW is the adhesive plate.
(NOTE: Nextbase has provided a ()GB microSD card to Tech Insider Network reviewers at no cost. This is to ensure reviewers do not need to rush out and purchase a memory card to use the product. Retail purchase does not include a microSD card so make sure you either have one around or add one to your purchase.)
The 622GW records at a maximum 4k at 30fps. And while there are other lower resolutions with higher framerate, I have opted to stay at 4k for the highest image detail possible. A higher framerate (ie. 60fps or 120fps) is nice but the benefit is not much better than 30fps in a dashcam. But the option is there if you prefer a higher framerate. Viewing recorded videos shows that 4k brings additional details into the overall picture. However, upon viewing some individual frames from these videos, I can spot some compression artifacts. I have never noticed it before since I do not have anything to view 4k videos natively. Turning the video resolution down to 1440 did not help in that regard so I left it at 4k. The built-in polarising filter helped a bit in reducing sun glare and windshield reflections. This is, to say the least, better than having no filter at all. I believe all dashcams should come with a polarising filter built in.
There are other features like Emergency SOS, Alexa voice assistant, and geolocation through what3words. While they are there, I did not use them nor did I turn on the feature. For people who use Alexa, they will find this useful. As a user of Google Assistant, I cannot form any opinion on how well it works. For geolocation using what3words or its Emergency SOS feature, I also cannot review these features as I do not believe either will be of much use. Smartphones have evolved to the point where it’s easy to set up an emergency system and info in place should one become incapacitated.
Connecting the dashcam to the smartphone app is easy, as basic connection is through Bluetooth. However, other functions, such as live preview or viewing/listing recorded videos require connecting to it via WiFi. (WiFi stops recording? double-check) Viewing the list of past recordings turned out to be unstable, as I can list them at first but it would failed to do so again when switching tabs in the app. I do not believe the app added anything to the overall usage and experience to the dashcam. Transferring videos don’t happen often and one can simply eject the SD card or take the entire dashcam and connect directly via USB. While those methods are unconventional, it’s a lot better than using the phone’s WiFi to connect to it.
Due to personal preference, I have turned off two settings -- “Speed Stamp” and microphone. Turning the microphone off will limit the amount of data written to the video file but also helps on privacy. “Speed Stamp” is a digital stamp that displays your current speed (likely estimated from GPS tracking). I have turned this off as there is an off chance where this information can be used against you, even though a dashcam in general is supposed to be beneficial to you.
There are a few strange oddities with the dashcam. One of which is partly my fault. For starters, prior to installing the dashcam, I updated the firmware to the latest available (6.4 as of review). What I should have done is use the dashcam with the stock firmware as it arrived. Because of this, I ran into an issue while using it. During my time of using it and driving around with it, the dashcam would lock up. Thus far, in the single week of random driving, several of them are short distance with one long distance, I have noticed the dashcam freezing twice. Both at random times. The first time it happened, there was no way to force it to power down. Only after cutting the engine off and waiting would it finally shut down (but not properly, as it ran out of power to display anything). After the second time, I went into the system settings to reformat the SD card and start anew. While I have yet to run into this problem again, it is worth pointing out as a possible issue.
Overall, I’m satisfied with the dashcam. The video quality is good enough (aka passable). And other than the aforementioned freezing issues, I’m satisfied with it. The companion app does not add much to the overall usability and experience and is only usable when you need to quickly check any recorded videos. I do wish that the video quality in 4k and 1440p was better. But better image quality will always equate to more data being written to the SD card.
The Good: 4k 30fps to capture more details, built-in polarising filter, mount/power compatible with other Nextbase dashcams, peace of mind while driving to avoid he-said-she-said disputes
The Bad: realizing the dashcam locked up/froze after you got home and parked
The Ugly: seeing compression artifacts at 4k and 1440p
Verdict: Recommended buying for the peace of mind when driving

GREAT QUALITY HARDWARE – Skip the Windows Software
REVIEW: NEXTBASE 622GW 4K DASH CAM
Best Buy Tech Insider Network
GREAT QUALITY HARDWARE – Skip the Windows Software
My first dashcam, so I was not sure what to expect. Overall, I am very happy with the unit. The hardware is top notch and very well made and constructed. The images are very sharp and clear (4K). I’ll likely get a second unit for my wife’s car. Do yourself a favor and skip the windows software as it adds no value. Just use your favorite video player or editor and you will be much happier. The images are stored on an SD card in normal “camera” format and folders. The included permanent mount and suction cup mount are a nice touch for flexibility. I also appreciate the wide array of compatible accessories from prior models. It is good to see that you don’t have to toss out all your accessories each time you upgrade. At first, I was surprised by the very old style USB connector (USB Mini-B) but then I came to appreciate that is part of their strategy to keep backwards and forward compatibility.
I plan to use it to capture fall color driving tours, as well as some of the crazy people on the road. Last year I was driving my son to work and the person ahead of me was putting on their makeup and frequently driving into oncoming traffic lanes. If I had the Nextbase, I could have done something about it. If I tried to fumble around for my cell phone I would have made it worse.
Overall, I recommend the Nextbase 622GW 4K Dash Cam for just about anyone who wants a little piece of mind while driving. The device itself is very small, a little larger than a business card. I don’t find it obstructing the view or distracting in anyway, especially with the screensaver on.
- Sticker that says format SD Card “FORTNIGHTLY”
- 4K Video (Clear Images)
- Suction Cup Mount included
- Super Powerful Magnets to connect to Mounts
- All included Cables
- Flexibility to configure what to record (size, volume, speed, location, etc)
- Compact Size
- Polarizing Filter to adjust contrast and reflections
- Little tool to “tuck wires” into headers and dash
The so called “quick start guide” is 18 pages long, and frankly is a little out of sequence. With all devices I suggest updating the firmware before doing anything else. The windows software kept telling me that there were no firmware updates available but I knew that was wrong. Perhaps if I used the Android app it would have worked. Instead, I followed the instructions for manually updating the firmware (from the website).
The steps are roughly as follows.
1. Install SD Card (make sure it is u3 speed designed for video or webcams)
2. Put on Charger for 2 hours
3. Format SD Card
4. Download Firmware on PC from the website
5. Connect Camera to PC
6. Select “Update Firmware” on Camera when it boots up
7. Browse to Camera Root Folder from Windows
8. Copy Firmware Files (not the zip files but the files inside) to Root Folder
9. Disconnect from Computer
10. Wait for a few reboots while firmware is uploaded (red lights eventually turn white)
11. Pair Camera W/ Phone
12. Download App (QR Code does not work) search for software manually
13. Watch for a flash “press to pair, tiny print” and press it
14. Pair the phone
15. Look for BT Icon on dashcam to know you are paired (app seemed to be stuck in a loop)
16. Reboot Phone
17. Reboot Camera
18. Re Launch App
19. Optional Alexa Setup
NOW you can continue with step 2 of the quick start and pay close attention to Step 8 to get the contrast correct.
By doing this all in your house, you are not sitting in your car for hours trying to figure it all out.
FEATURES AND SETTINGS
There are a lot of features and I’m sure I’ve not used them all but here I my thoughts on a few.
IMAGE STABILIZATION – Not worthwhile unless you want to make a movie. It is only digital which means it reduces the resolution from 4K to something less then uses software to try to stabilize. I would rather have the “raw” 4K image, so I turned it off.
WIFI – This is on the box, but nowhere else in the manuals. It took me forever to figure out what this was or how it was used. All it means it the once the phone app connects to the device over bluetooth, it sets up a virtual “hotspot” between the phone and the dashcam so your video are moved to your phone over WiFi (at a higher speed than Bluetooth supports). This is all automatic you don’t have to do anything or think about it. Many cameras also use this same trick.
WHAT3WORDS – Allows your location to be communicated by 3 random words like Butter-Box-Flag instead of GPS coordinates. Interesting, you can take it or leave it.
ALEXA INTEGRATION – In effect all it is doing is allowing the MIC in the dashcam to talk to the Alexa App on your phone. It is not really a standalone Alexa Device. But it works well enough. It is one less distracting thing in that you don’t have to fumble with your phone while driving. We use Alexa to bypass the need for multiple music subscription services for each car.
SOS – I have not activated this yet as it is only a 1 year subscription. Once I decide whether or not to get a second unit I’ll think about the SOS feature. It is a nice feature, but I’m not sure I want “one more subscription” to worry about.
I think it is a great unit, I could go on and on about how horrible the windows software is, but if you just don’t use it, then problem solved or at least avoided.
[OK I can’t help myself just a little. SLOW, Choppy playback, overrides the correct timestamp on the video files and dashcam – thinks I’m in London, pause does not work, does not import still photo files from dashcam – only video, firmware update does not work, and more] Phew, got that out my system.
Get this for the top class hardware and image quality, use your own software you will be perfectly happy.

Great 4K dash cam
I used lots of dash cameras in last few years and NextBase 622GW is one of the best I tried.
Very nice and clean packaging, that included camera itself, two cords (one usb for house, other with 12V car plug), GPS stick on magnetic mount with power connector, suction cup extension mount, warning window sticker, extra sticky pad, cable tucking tool, SD card and instruction guide.
Initial setup of the camera was easy and first step was to charge camera (this camera has internal battery) per instructions, then getting MyNextBase app and configuring device to my own preference. Initial setup vent fine but my problems started after initial setup and I had few of them:
1. Unable to install prompted firmware update from 5.9 to 6.4. Download of the new firmware was completed but it always failed to install it. – This was resolved and updated by downloading update file by computer to SD card
2. Second issue was being unable to get live view once I connect to camera
3. Unable to download files from camera to the app/phone, and every time when attempted to download files camera would freeze and wouldn’t even power off.
4. Unable to play recorded videos on MyNextBase app
In order to resolve problems 2, 3 and 4 I did try a lot, and this is what I did at end to make it work:
Performed reset the dash cam to all defaults
Reset the network settings on the phone
Left camera ON but unplugged to drain dash cam battery
Waited 24 hours before I continued
Reset the camera settings again
Did initial setup again and everything worked fine.
For issues listed above I will take away 1 star.
Experience with device:
I used sticky pad GPS mount simple because I know it won’t fall of in hot days which I cannot guarantee for any suction cup mount. Camera is easy removable from this magnetic GPS mount by simple pull back toward yourself. For the video quality mine was set for 4K at 30fps (it also supports 1440p 30fps, 1080 60fps and 1080 30fps), and I like short clips 1 minute which is my preference but there is option for 2 and 3 minutes clips as well. Camera supports pictures capturing by double tapping the camera touchscreen (yes, this device has really clean touch screen), and video clips could be protected from overwriting by simple pressing of the small “NextBase” button right under the screen. Video & picture quality is clean and beautiful to provide enough details such as road signs, license plates of the cars in front of you etc. This camera has built in polarizing filter which help to reduce or eliminate windshield reflection which also makes big difference when it comes to video quality. Since I am talking about video part I should mention that NextBase 622 has option to save two clips for each file (or each occurrence), one in high resolution and other in low resolution. I decided to disable this feature in order to save up space on SD card. Camera also support image stabilization (if enabled). Audio quality is also great and clean to understand passengers or hear car next to you honking, extreme brakes squeaking or even yelling and lauder talking around your car. If you choose to enable all display options, your recording video could have on screen information for your speed, GPS coordinates, camera model, time and date. NextBase 622 lets you connect to your phone by both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi which makes file accessing (and sending to someone) very pleasant and easy. Camera supports parking mode but I am not using this feature because my 12V power outlet is not working if car is turned off. Emergency SOS is feature that monitors camera sensors (in case of accidents) to determine crash and sends a SOS signal (or message) to emergency services including your location and medical information (to setup up this location in your phone for NextBase app needs to be set on “always”, and you will need to setup feature with your name, phone number and voluntary medical data such as allergies, blood type), and this service it’s free for 12 months. Honestly I am not using this feature. This dash cam also supports Alexa but simple because I have iPhone with Siri I am also not using this feature.
I like this product mostly because of great video & audio quality that is after all my main reason to get a dash camera. I like the camera design, touch screen, great magnetic GPS mount which allows you to remove camera fast and easily, and integrated polarizing filter which is great addition to improve video clarity. Currently my only concern is the fact that this camera gets little bit hot (in December) so I would recommend to use screensaver feature.

Not a Great Upgrade
I was looking forward to replacing my Nextbase 522GW which has only 1440p with this 622GW because of its 4K resolution. There are some really nice features on the 622GW, but also a couple of setbacks that give me pause.
• The 4K resolution is excellent. It’s most helpful when looking at small details, like a license plate from a car way ahead of you. This by itself makes it worth upgrading to any 4K dash cam if yours doesn’t have it.
• Enhanced Image Stabilization (EIS). I was not expecting much from the image stabilization but it works really well. Footage is far smoother and less bumpy. But it does a remarkable job keeping license plates and other text sharp. One tradeoff to EIS is max native resolution drops from 3840x2160 (4K) to 2704x1520, though it is then expanded back to 4K. Unless you’re trying to capture every original detail of a scenic drive, I would leave EIS turned on as it makes it easier to read plates in motion.
• Faster response with the iPhone Nextbase app. The 522GW was lethargic connecting to the app compared to the 622GW
• Fits seamlessly into the same mount as the 522GW. This meant that I did not have to install new wiring.
• The biggest con is the polarizing filter in the 622GW has a terrible color cast. The polarizer is very useful because you can rotate the filter on the lens to remove reflections from your windshield. But whatever polarizer is used in the 622GW causes a strong red cast, especially when driving into the sun. See attached photos of the 622GW versus 522GW. I’m surprised this made it past quality control.
• MyNextbase app on my iMac would not update the firmware on the 622GW. When I attach the 522GW, it recognizes it and the dash cam allows me to invoke an update. No such recognition on the 622GW. A further annoyance is that the macOS app is supposed to check for its own updates but never finds one. So I manually downloaded the latest version of the macOS app – and one last aggravation with that is the Nextbase website confusingly has only a Windows logo only for the app, even though when you click through it downloads a dmg file. Regardless, it was all a waste of time since I could not get the player to update the dash cam firmware.
• I also tried to update the firmware using the Nextbase iOS app on my iPhone 11. Unfortunately it kept saying that installed ver 5.9 was the latest release, even though the website shows a ver 6.4. Ultimately, I had to download the bin files, copy them to the microSD card, and manually update the firmware on the dash cam. When I ran the iOS app again to check for updates, it offered to “update” the ver 6.3 firmware back to the ver 5.9. The good news is after the manual update, the MyNextbase app on the iMac recognized the 622GW, and I was able to use it to check for new firmware versions.
• When I set the dash cam to record 2 minute long videos, every now and then, it missed a few seconds of footage when starting a new video. When I set it to 1 minute videos, I did not notice any time skips.
In summary, it you already have an older Nextbase with the same mount, this is worth upgrading just for the image stabilization. The color cast is obnoxious, but if you’re trying to prove what happened, the color shift shouldn’t matter. If you’re not worried about easy install, then you should look for another dash cam that has image stability but with a superior image.

Gorgeous Video and Dash Cam!
Dashcams are a must in every vehicle, you never know when you will need one but it’s always better to have a dashcam than to not have one in an urgent situation. The Nextbase Dash Cam surprised me with all the various features! Some of my favorites are auto screen dimming, image stabilization, and the emergency SOS service just in case you get into an accident. The SOS service will alert medical services to your location. The 4k video is stunning and the nighttime video is extremely clear. The camera is heavy, but it feels like it was built extremely well. I found the installation of the dashcam easy and trouble-free. All I had to do was charge the camera for a few hours and it was ready for installation. The app is a great complementary to the camera as it allows you to view all your videos and change settings on your camera quickly. Although, there are a couple of bugs that need to be addressed. One of them being connecting to Alexa, I tried to connect to Alexa but unfortunately could not succeed.
You will have the option to install the dash cam with a suction mount or an adhesive 3M mount. I went with the adhesive since the dashcam will be staying in my vehicle long term. The suction mount is perfect for portability. In the box, you will also receive a 12-24v power(cigarette) cable, a USB cable to view all your videos on your computer, and a power cable fitting tool to help you with the wiring for the camera.
Overall, I would recommend this dashcam. This dashcam is a bit on the expensive side and the rear camera that goes with this is sold separately but if you have the funds for this dash cam, definitely consider this as one of your choices.

Absolutely Stunning True 4K Dash Cam!
I've owned a previous model, the Nextbase 322GW for a couple of years now, and with an unfortunate wreck back in August 2020, I added a rear view camera that month as well.
I was so incredibly impressed with the Nextbase 322GW and the data it captured during that wreck, that I couldn't wait to try out this brand new 4K 622GW.
Nextbase have continued the same mounting mechanism for their latest release, so it was as easy as unclipping my previous camera, and clipping in the new camera into the magnetic mount, and connecting the rearview camera (not included with the 622GW), and I was up and away. I'd already inserted a Nextbase 64GB card (which is recommended for 4K recording) and formatted it.
Compared to the 322GW, the 622GW has a slightly larger footprint, a larger touchscreen on the back, and a significantly larger aperture for the lens on the front.
The clarity of the 4K image is beautiful, the image stabilization feature works really, really well, and GPS location with What3Words make this dash cam invaluable.
Touted as the 'Ultimate 4K Cinematic Dash Cam Experience', that is exactly what it is. The image is recorded in 4K (3840 x 2160) at 30fps, which gives you great clarity and detail, and the image stabilization allows you to view license plates with ease, and all the details of your journey. And the great thing is, that the 622GW records in full 4K, while also recording high quality 1080p through my rear camera, both at 30fps.
This latest generation also comes with Enhanced Night Vision, which picks out a lot more detail in low light settings, clearer details on the darkest of roads. This is done by using larger pixels, which allow more light into the camera, coupled with image enhancing technology. In addition to that, the camera also features Extreme Weather Mode, which enhanced the image digitally in weather events such as fog, where details are a lot harder to see. Built in algorithms capture the clearest image possible.
Super Slow Motion is another image setting that allows you to play slow motion videos, 1080p at 120fps, giving you the opportunity to reveal great detail, such as license plates or faces, should you need to.
Compared side by side, the 4K resolution offers a less harsh contrast, creating higher definition, notably of clouds in the sky, you see all the gradients and undulations, whereas the 1080p version created harsher white shapes, with little definition. Of course, you aren't capturing clouds, that resolution translates into crisper, clearer visuals on the road, be it a road hazard, an incident, or a license plate.
The image stabilization is in itself almost cinematic, I have quite a bumpy driveway that shakes my Jeep from side to side, but viewing through the 622GW, the image is smooth as silk. It truly is remarkable.
You will also never be lost again, with the What3Words functionality embedded within the dash cam, it can pinpoint your exact location to a 3 meter squared space! What3Words has divided the world into 3 meter squares and assigned them a three word designation that will never change, allowing pinpoint accuracy, way more accurate than an address or an intersection. That location can then be shared with roadside assistance or emergency services, should you need to. Best of all, you don't need to have a data connection for it to work, it is able to provide your location at any time, no matter what. That's piece of mind right there!
The 622GW has Alexa built in, so you can ask Alexa to play music, place calls, turn on your smart lights as you pull in the driveway, and even control the 622GW dash cam itself!
The camera also has wifi connectivity, bluetooth connectivity and an SOS Emergency Alert option (should you choose to set it up) that can alert emergency services automatically, of your blood type, allergies or any other pre-set medical conditions to help with your treatment.
Another invaluable feature is the intelligent parking mode that when set, automatically records if it notices any bumps or physical movement of the vehicle when left unattended. Perfect for a hit and run scenario or attempted theft. I definitely have that feature turned on at all times.
The Nextbase downloadable software is phenomenal. I can speak from experience of the aforementioned wreck we recently had. The data available and picture quality was able to prove instantly with no contest that the wreck was not our fault. The software shows the speed, direction, GPS location, the G-force, and even Google Maps highlighted route of your direction of travel. So much data is available, and made it so much easier when filing an insurance claim. I had a response from the other parties insurance accepting 100% liability within 4 hours. No back and forth, it was right there in high definition.
So far I have been incredibly impressed with everything that the 622GW has to offer in the short time I've owned it.

Top of the line!
Really wanted a 4k dash cam so that I could zoom in on recordings, in case I needed a license plate detail or road-sign etc. Being able to review videos on your phone is a huge plus. Also, Alexa is pretty sweet - I use it (her?) to listen to music/get the weather and other basic functions. I'm sure I could open garage doors/etc as well.
Parking Mode works as advertised. I'm using the Cabin View rear cam which I really like! Great in-car view to save funny family moments. Very happy and really nothing to complain about except it's expensive!

Brand response from Nextbase
Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'd recommend: 1. Cleaning your windscreen with an alcohol wipe to ensure it's clean and free of debris. 2. Removing the old adhesive pad from the adhesive bracket and using the spare from the box instead. 3. If you've already used the spare, purchasing a new pad from our Spares and Parts website and use this on the mount.
If there's anything else that we can do to help, please don't hesitate to get in contact.

Nextbase 622GW 4K dash cam review – it has every feature you'd ever want in a dash camDo you have a dash cam in your vehicle yet? A dash cam is a type of gadget that you install and then forget about it. The hope is that you'll never need it unless it's to review some fun footage that it captured instead of accident footage
The camera has Parking Mode activated. For Parking Mode, if the camera is completely still for five minutes (the car is parked), then the camera will 'hibernate' in Parking Mode.
If your car is bumped and the G Force sensor registers movement then the dash cam will automatically turn on, record for 30 seconds and then shut back down again. If you are unlucky enough to be hit twice in a row then the dash cam would automatically record again and capture both events.
Here's some more information about Parking Mode:
A:AnswerNo. The NextBase dash cam only accepts ONE rear camera. For what you want to do, look at the HaloView RD7 and the HaloView CA112 camera system for RVs. It will give you a REAR camera and two SIDE cameras with exceptional video quality. The side cameras replace side marker lights, so you remove the original side markers and install the CA 112 left and right cameras in their place. We put these on a 38 foot motorhome and are VERY pleased with the results.
A:AnswerHello. Emergency SOS feature would only be activated in the event of a serious accident or collision. It goes through a system of 3 sperate warnings before contacting the emergency services. This feature can be turned off/disabled via the menu settings option though if not needed. Thanks, Nextbase
A:AnswerHi Doc, The hardwire kit contains all the components required to easily “piggyback” from a fuse box of any vehicle. Simply plug the required fuse tap cable into the vehicle’s fuse box,to provide the camera with its own power supply. This allows the Dash Cam to be installed in your vehicle without the need to use the 12V outlet (car cigarette socket). The cable also includes a blue LED indicator to show when there is power available and also when a Dash Cam is connected. If fitted to a "permanent live" supply, the inbuilt minimum voltage limiter will protect the vehicle's battery from going flat. With the Hardwire Kit installed on a "switched live" supply, the Dash Cam will power on and start recording automatically when the vehicle is opened or starts. Compatible with 12-24V for car or truck installations You'll have your choice to tap a fuse which dependent on the ignition for power, or an independent fuse which will provide 24/7 Dash Cam security when your car is off and in park. The Hardwire kit includes a voltage meter, so that it quits drawing power from a low car battery, this way you never arrive to a dead car.
Includes: 5V Mini USB power cable, 2 Amp ATO/C fuse (standard), 2 Amp ATM fuse (mini), Fuse tap table (standard), Fuse tap cable ATM (mini) and Ferrite core to remove DAB interference.
Geek Squad is available to install any dash cam for the price of $59.99. This includes installation of a Front Camera, Rear Camera (optional), and Hardwire kit (optional). If you choose to install yourself, the new model 2020 Ram 1500 requires a new mini2 fuse, which is not currently included inside the box, but Nextbase will ship you this item if you email: Sales@nextbase.com. Alternatively, the geek squad will have a dongle in their possession.
A:AnswerNextbase's answer was not consistent with their user manual which states:
- Do not leave the device exposed to a heat source or in a high-temperature location, such as in the sun or in an unattended vehicle. To prevent the possibility of damage, remove the Dash Cam from the vehicle or store it out of direct sunlight, such as in the glove box.
- Do not operate the Dash Cam outside of the following temperature range: from -20° to 45°C (from -4° to 113°F).
