The Nextbase 522GW's modular design allows you to add on a secondary camera and other accessories to build your perfect dash cam system. The 522GW is loaded with the standard Nextbase features: smartphone connectivity, Alexa, GPS and a touchscreen.
Nextbase 522GW 2K QHD Smart Dash Cam
Nextbase 522GW 2K QHD Smart Dash Cam
2K QHD with Built-in Polarizing Filter
The Nextbase 522GB records the road ahead in 2K QHD at 30FPS, with the added option of recording at 1080p (60fps) and 720p. An improved 6G glass lens captures critical details on the road, from road signs to license plates.
The camera specs of the 522GW are almost identical to the 422GW, it has 2k footage at 30fps or 1080p at 60fps. The only difference is that the 522GW has a built-in polarizing filter. In bright sunlight, the filter reduces glare and bright contrast levels to help capture important license plate detail. With a rotating bezel, you can set up the reflection-free lens exactly how you need it in your vehicle. The Nextbase Polarizing Filter removes all windshield reflection to capture only the events in front of you.
Emergency SOS Response To Get You The Help You Need
Your Nextbase™ Dash Camera and MyNextbase Connect App features life-saving crash detection and emergency alerting technology. It is designed to automatically and directly connect you to the nearest Ambulance Service in the event of an accident when you are unable to call for assistance.
In order for this function to work, you must have the ‘MyNextbase Connect™’ app installed on your smartphone (or similar device), have an internet connection, and have Bluetooth (4.2+) turned on. ‘MyNexbase Connect™’ can be downloaded from the Apple App Store® or Google Play®.
Intelligent Parking Mode
Once you park, the Dash Cam automatically switches to “parking mode,” shutting down everything except the G-Force sensor.
Should physical movement of the vehicle be detected, the Dash Cam will power on and start recording a 30-second protected video. If no further physical movement is detected then the Dash Cam will return to standby mode.
All the features you love from Alexa — while you drive. The Nextbase Alexa Skills gives you the ability to use voice commands to your Dash Cam — such as “Start recording,” “Take a picture,” or “Stop recording” — without having to take your eyes off the road or your hands off the steering wheel.
In order for this function to work, you must have both the ‘MyNextbase Connect™’ and the ‘Amazon Alexa’ app installed on your smartphone (Android 6+ or iOS 13+), have an internet connection, and have Bluetooth (4.2+) turned on. Within this menu, you will be able to turn your Dash Cam’s Alexa functions ON or OFF, and manage paired devices. Note that you may need to update firmware for Alexa to function.
3” Touchscreen - the Ultimate User Experience
A touch screen allows the dash cam to be smaller and more discreet while making the camera easier to use. For instance, you can perform “on Dash Cam editing” – simply edit your videos on the Dash Cam itself using the touch screen and then view and share a smaller clip showing just the incident.
Auto-Sync with My Nextbase Connect™
Bluetooth Autosync also means that your dash cam is automatically connected to MyNextbase Connect™ on your smartphone when you enter the car, ready to use the Emergency SOS service or Alexa.
MyNextbase Connect™ is an easy-to-use app that will enable you to effortlessly manage and share your videos, edit clips, and check for and install firmware updates.
MyNextbase Cloud™ is Nextbase’s free online video sharing service where you can safely and securely store your Dash Cam files. Upload your file to the Nextbase™ Server using the ‘Share Video’ function on either MyNextbase Player™, or the MyNextbase Connect™ app. Added bonus - you will have the option to protect your video with a password. Once your video has finished uploading you will be given a secure link to watch your video online and/or download it to your computer/device. This link can be shared with others (including your insurer) to view/download the video. Videos will be automatically deleted 30 days after they are uploaded.
Click&Go PRO mount
Exclusive new patented mount design using neodymium magnets, the Click&Go Pro mount runs power through the mount allowing your camera to be truly wireless as easily removed makes for easy one-handed cam installation and removal.
