Nextbase Dash Cam Features
Nextbase recently released their Series 2 range, all featuring top-of-the-line features and integration with the latest in-car technology. Here’s a taste of what you can get with a Nextbase Dash Cam (note that some features are exclusive to some models):
Intelligent Parking Mode:If the dash cam detects any bumps or movement on your car, it’ll start recording – even if you’re not around.
Autosync:Watch your videos on your phone.
What3words:Nextbase pinpoints your exact location down to a 3m square area using the revolutionary what3words technology, even if you don’t know where you are.
Enhanced Night Vision:Ever rewatched a recording and realised you can’t see anything at all? With Nextbase dash cams, you’ll get all the details no matter how dark the road is – perfect for identifying number plates in the dark.
4K Ultra HD and 30 fps:Yep, you read that right. This dash cam has better quality than your TV.
HDR and WDR:Nextbase dash cams combine images at different exposures to give you a crystal-clear image at all times.
Emergency SOS:Your dash cam will alert emergency services with your exact location and personal details in the event of an accident if you are unresponsive. This could mean the difference between life and death on quiet roads where help may not come immediately.
Wifi:Time to throw out all of your wires. With this handy feature, you can download and share videos and photos directly onto your phone or tablet. No need to go through the long, boring process of sifting through hundreds of files on your SD card!
Alexa Voice Control:Ask Alexa to put on your favourite beats, find a parking spot, give directions, or to start/stop recording, all without taking your hands off the wheel and risking a hefty fine.
Super Slow Motion:Ever tried to find a number plate after an accident, only to realise the footage is too blurry to read? Nextbase’s super slow motion feature lets you view your footage in 1080p at 120 fps so you’ll never miss a number plate again.
