  • The Camera is nice but...
    Reviewed by Melanie - July 16, 2020

    Bought this for my spouse for his new vehicle with the rear view cam. Now there is a rear cam and a cabin cam so make sure you look closely at which one you decide to purchase because the angles are different. We found the rear cam worked best for us. This camera gets a 3 star for being a great cam but having an overly disappointing app. I have a new phone and am tech savvy but the app makes me want to rip my hair out. It's slow to connect even if it does. It's best to pull the sd card and load to your pc which completely defeats the purpose if you want to do something quick in a parking lot and have to struggle with the app.

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

  • Nextbase 522gw Worst buy
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - October 30, 2020

    I went through 3 nextbase 522gw dash cams bought from Best buy in Calgary AB and all had issues including not switching off not matter what you do . I was forced to upgrade to the more expensive 622gw , slightly better performance but screen still freezes now and again , and yes I'm using a recommended nextbase sd card including proper set up .Before this I had the 412gw (from Halfords UK) for over 2 years without any issues and even sold it to someone who is quite happy with it . I still own a 401gw and it still works. Seems Nextbase are now producing poor quality products loaded with technology that doesn't really work but come with a huge price tag .

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

  • Worth every penny
    Reviewed by aa81 - November 18, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I can't say enough amazing things about this dashcam! I have used many dashcams before, from cheap to expensive. All have their own quirks and some perform much better than others, but I always felt like most, if not all, were lacking in video quality and overall options. NXTBASE not only is super easy to install, it has an incredibly user friendly interface so I can select my options with just a touch of the screen. I find the video quality to be really on par with some of the most expensive cams I have used and I love the feature to connect to an app on my phone. The bonus of having the option to use Alexa voice cam just seals the deal for me.
