    • DashCam That Comes to Play

      from Best Buy US on 16 juillet 2019

      I’ve taken my NextBase on a few trips around town now and I’ve really enjoyed the video quality! I’ve had one other DashCam before this and it sucked. This DashCam’s actually video quality isn’t grainy and the window attachment has a strong magnet that doesn’t compromise how sturdy it hangs from the glass. The cons for me are that it still requires a clunky wire to charge the device. It makes the vehicle terribly ugly and though it’s long enough to tuck in and around the car it is a task that can annoy you. The NextBase application is very intuitive and easy to transfer files, title files, sort and move. Alexa is built in and a feature you can turn on, oh and there’s an SOS feature for emergencies or crashes so great for a young driver! I’ve been wanting to drive for a car service but feared that something random might happen but having the NextBase gives me a little more peace of mind that I can do it with ease. As far as size as concerned it is about the size of your palm or an old pager, the mount is easy to mount on the glass and the magnet is so secure it’s almost tough to remove it from the glass so that’s good! Hope this helps.

    • Excellent dash cam!

      from Best Buy US on 15 juillet 2019

      Installation of this cam is easy with the included power adapter and mounting base. Once setup and a MicroSD memory card has been installed (which it doesn't come with) it's pretty much ready to go and will always be ready to record when you're on the road. The image quality is great and is more than sufficient for proving fault in an accident or even just as a cam to record your adventure. The really wide angle is nice and captures both sides of the road. It adjusts brightness and saturation/tone automatically and actually works really well at night! Don't expect it to "see in the dark" but it will record almost just as you see it as you are driving. The cam allows you to download the videos via Wifi and the Bluetooth connectivity enables the SOS/Alexa features to work as well. The Alexa feature is cool for checking the weather or asking questions but it won't do Navigation. Downloading videos is a snap with the app over the Wifi connection making it easy to gather the video and cut what you want out of it. The unit does get a bit hot but so far I haven't noticed any issues. The screen is big and bright with a much better image than I thought it'd have!! Very impressed there. Taking/snapping pictures while driving is as simple as tapping the middle of the screen. You can easily expand this system so that you have a rear cam with the same video quality as the front. I think that having the second cam is not necessary but sure makes it nice knowing that both directions are covered by video. For other features, the SOS is awesome knowing that you have peace of mind in an accident that emergency services will be contacted unless you stop it on your phone when it prompts. The other thing that's cool and works pretty well is the Intelligent parking where it records if the cam detects movement of your vehicle. In short, I'd definitely recommend this camera for anyone looking to protect themselves, their car and family.

    • excellent video quality, amazing co-pilot

      from Best Buy US on 15 juillet 2019

      The 522 is an amazing product in every way. The basic functionality of a dash cam is out of this world good. The video clarity is top notch and with the included polarized lens, it cuts the glare. Night footage is equally great. UX is great with the App and easy to use functionality. the wireless mount is great for when i head into San Francisco and break ins are a dime a dozen. rear module is amazing as well. super easy to install and toggle between views. Excited that i haven't had to use the SOS tech, but i'm happy to know it's there when i need it. GPS and hand free alexa. it's got it all. i'm getting another one for my family!
