Connectivity problems

I have purchased a car which has a Nextbase 380 GWX wired into the car. I followed the instructions on this app to connect to the dash cam but a message told me that I needed to use Cam Viewer. I have tried several time to connect to the dash cam using Cam Viewer and the dash cam’s WiFi but nearly every time the spinning wheel on my iPhone SE 2020 keeps going around and around and eventually times out. On a couple of occasions I was asked for the password so when I entered the default password a message came up saying “you cannot use this at this time” or words to that effect. What do I do now? How can I input my car registration number to the Dash Cam? I can download videos to my iMac but I would like to download them to my phone sometimes. Please help.

Since posting the above review, I was contacted by Nextbase support who talked me through the set up procedures for Camviewer. All is now well and the app works fine.

Always Nextbase

I have had Nextbase dash cams for about 15 years and always found them easy to operate even purchased one for my daughter who after one day of having it used it when someone crashed into her car so I think people with any sense will have a dash cam in their motor

Hello Mick,
Thank you for your great review!

Well what a frustrating experience

I bought two 522 cameras in their sale and a rear camera then three 202 cameras. First off with the 522 - it freezes sometimes, especially if I connect the rear camera. The ‘fast’ network connection takes ages to download a 150mb file to my phone and trying to look back in time via the camera is near impossible as you have to step back a file at a time.

Alexa set up is hit and miss - more miss than hit.

Next is the problem if you have two cars and two cameras as the App seems to only be able to cope with one camera and one Alexa. So if I use my wife’s car I cannot connect my phone to her dashcam and use Alexa.

The app regularly crashes and even with power the dashcam regularly disconnects whilst I am searching files for that idiot driver two days ago that cut me up! Wasted hours on that.

I bought them via Quidco but the transaction didn't track and Quidco say Nextbase don’t allow cashback claims to be raised.

Seriously thinking of returning all 5 cameras for a refund as the cashback or lack of seems a con - as indeed does the reliability and flexibility of the app and kit. Oh and don’t believe the claim of cheaper car insurance as when I tried to get a quote through the app it simply said they couldn’t quote me!

Everything seems unreliable.

Freezing is usually symptomatic of an SD card issue, I'd recommend checking that the SD card is compatible for the 522GW and is being regularly formatted.
At the moment the app is only single device compatible. This is under development with our teams to allow multi-use, however his is not yet available.
I'd recommend ensuring that the 522GW is on the latest firmware available, which can be found and downloaded from
If there's anything else that we can do to help, please don't hesitate to get in contact at or 02920866429.
