About this deal

If you don't clip it up, you could end up with the cable running from the front to the back of your car - which is another reason to recommend hardwiring.

Please turn Parking Mode off and turn Screen Saver off as these could interfere with the test results. You can also rotate the display, should you want to mount the camera upside down – although the menu buttons stay where they are.In conclusion, the Nextbase 512GW is a feature-rich dashcam that provides high-quality recordings in Quad HD resolution. Note that the 512GW’s firmware must be updated to recognise the rear camera, and we had to unplug and replug the USB cable a couple of times after updating before it did indeed spot that it was connected and offer us a choice of seeing the feed on the left or right of the screen as a picture-in-picture, or full screen. The Nextbase 512G is the worlds first dash cam with an anti glare polarising filter to cut out windscreen reflection and ensure you get the very best footage possible.

On the front of the 512GW the 6-layer glass lenses are covered by a special anti-glare polarizing filter. I was also told to press "Mode" to switch between rear PiP and rear full screen - I guess so you get a better view of who or what you are about to run over ! The 512GW (GPS WiFi) offers high-resolution video quality and a built-in WiFi system for easily accessing video clips on a smartphone. The NEXTBASE Video Recording 3 inch Dash Cam is a premium quality camera with 1440p quality and full night vision capabilities. We’d recommend hard wiring the dash camera since it hides away the wires and leaves the 12V socket free for charging phones.

That’s likely because the 512GW’s processor can’t handle the front camera at the highest quality plus the rear camera’s feed. Fault:- when first power up after connecting 512 to rear cam then inserting 512 into windscreen mount is the PiP of rear view is just an outline. Plus it has the benefit of a polarising filter and six-layer glass lens for reduced glare and sharper video. Nextbase dash cams are readily available from Halfords and are allegedly endorsed by the AA, so it’s no surprise that the specification and build make for a promising start.

It is designed to be connected to your 512GW using a 6m cable, which can be neatly hidden under your roof lining.But the cheaper Nextbase 412GW is a good option, or for more features, the 612GW is top of the range. Then start of operation each day would just involve plugging rear camera into base unit, plugging base unit with screen mounted holder. Ok - off/on is all that's needed but the unit takes 3 to 4 seconds to go into power down mode and another 3 to 4 seconds to power up and perform as expected. Nextbase provides two mounting options in the box: suction cup, or a 3M-supplied adhesive patch for a more permanent connection.

The picture quality is better than ever with stronger colours and amazing clarity thanks to the upgraded Sony Exmor R Sensor.Editorial independence means being able to give an unbiased verdict about a product or company, with the avoidance of conflicts of interest. It’s more than up to the job of providing a useful view of the road ahead in case you need video evidence of an incident. I seem to remember being told if you want some other position, just unplug and plug back in the rear camera leaving the main unit powered (don't quote me). You can then view footage using the Nextbase Replay 3 software, available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows as well as for macOS.
