Ratings and Reviews
VERY VERY POOR
I’m seriously disappointed with the over experience of using this app. The main selling point for me was the WiFi connectivity and file transfer feature which was heavily advertised. This would not only have saved me masses of time in sending files to authorities immediately from my phone, rather than waiting until I got home to download clips onto my computer, but also the prospect of being able to save all clips to the cloud, thus, freeing up my memory card. HOWEVER! The app is abysmal, every time I activate WiFi on the dash cam, and successfully connect my phone to it as denoted by the confirmation on the dash cam- the app does not recognise any devises are connected and instead, redirects me back to settings in my phone. This is extremely disappointing as should the time arise where I need to send a clip to someone immediately- I don’t want to be faffing around trying to get an app to work.
Again, WiFi connectivity was the most important factor in buying this dash cam, and I’ve been left severely disappointed. It’s effectively no different to a lot of other basic, cheaper 1080p dash cams available without the WiFi functionality.
If you're having connection issues, update the firmware
I bought this dash cam for, like many others, the ability to connect via WIFI to view and download clips. But, also like many others, I have experienced connection issues where I'd connect to the WIFI but the app didn't recognise it and kept diverting me to the connection settings.
However, using a little common sense, I checked the Nextbase website and found a firmware update. After following the instructions, the cam operates perfectly now.
A few tips:
• Before using an SD card to install the upgrade, you should format the card in the cam itself. I tried to format the card twice via Windows but just kept getting an, "Invalid card..." error. After formatting the card in the cam, transferring the files, and restarting the device, it worked perfectly.
• If you're worried about losing any previously stored footage, you can use a new/different SD card. Alternatively, copy the contents of the existing card to a PC, format the card, perform the upgrade, then transfer them back afterwards.
• During the upgrade, all cam settings will be reset back to default so make sure to set them back after.
Now I have the upgraded firmware installed, I'm very happy with the cam and would recommend. However, I'm aware there's a v2 series out there so would probably opt for one of those (including the new app).
Waste of time
Had this app on my phone for about 2 minutes which was long enough to realise it was pointless.
Did everything asked and connected the dash cam to my phone, dash cam says I’m connected to my phone but my phones says no, redirects me to the settings in my phone so after going round in circles three times going into my phone settings to indeed see the dash cam listed as a connected device for the dash cam app to tell me I’m not I decided to delete the app, I’ve had the dash cam for about 5 years and I’ve been thinking of upgrading to a better more upmarket next base dash cam but this experience has made me think more about trying a different company so I’ll be YouTubing and googling a lot of dash cam companies and read lots of reviews to see which dash cam I should purchase next, it’s a shame because the actual product is very easy to set up and use but like most people I want what I’ve paid for and sending captured video to my phone is what I’ve paid for but unfortunately am unable to achieve like many other reviewers have mentioned.
