Nexar is not your typical dash cam app. When paired with a compatible car camera, Nexar automatically starts and stops recording your drives. Videos are live-streamed to the app and important events, like hard brakes and accidents, are immediately saved to your phone and backed up to your private Nexar cloud, so you can access evidence from any device, at any time.
When you join Nexar, you’re also joining a community of drivers who care about safety and the drivers’ community. The Nexar app is constantly being upgraded and we’re committed to building a service that will improve your driving experience and eventually save lives.
HOW DO I GET A NEXAR-POWERED DASH CAM?
You can order a dash cam right from the app or from buy.getnexar.com.
Records as you drive
When paired to a compatible camera, Nexar starts recording automatically, whenever you start driving, and streams video to the app. The app works in the background so you can use other apps while driving.
Detects dangerous incidents
Nexar uses AI algorithms and sensors to automatically capture dangerous incidents like hard brakes, sharp turns, and fast accelerations.
Provides instant evidence
In case of an accident, the footage is automatically displayed on the Nexar app.
Backs up to the cloud
All driving incidents are automatically uploaded to your free and secure Nexar cloud account.
1-Click Report™ for insurance claims
Create detailed summaries of driving incidents, including place, time, impact, and footage, to save you time, money and unnecessary stress.
360 Collision Detection
Nexar’s machine learning algorithms identify (and prove) all types of collisions, even when they occur beyond the camera’s frame.
View & share your videos
After every drive, you'll be able to see its summary, including the route and any incident clips that were recorded. Share these clips and other data with friends, family, or your insurance provider, directly through the app.

Ratings and Reviews
Well worth the price! (free)
Considering most decent quality dash cams go for $50+, this app is outstanding. I’ve been using it with my iOttie iPhone holder and sure it’s a bit shaky but that’s only to do with my set up. It still gives good results and would provide sufficient evidence in case something did happen. I like the clip feature by tapping the screen a lot too. The only issues I’ve encountered is sometimes there’s a issue where if you’re playing music out of your car speakers the app will sometimes switch the audio to your phone speakers for some reason. After some force restarting and messing around you can usually get it back. Besides that the app will occasionally crash during recording but this is rare and can usually be spotted and fixed. It’s a bit awkward to do while driving however so if anything could be improved that would be my choice. The addition of MPH monitoring would be cool for playback but that’s just nit picky. Thanks for offering a great free dash cam app!! Please don’t stop updating lol this is a awesome thing to have.
Great camera, with some flaws
I have to start off with how great this camera is, I’m super happy that I have it. I have already had a close call with another driver who wasn’t paying attention. This is probably the best camera that I have gotten my hands on, and it’s perfect for my work. Plus the app is super helpful when it comes to those close calls, because it detects my hard breaks, and it’ll clip that exact situation, and in a insurance claim, having footage of the accident taking place, vs not having footage is your word against their word. I’m super happy with my purchase, and will recommend it to friends and family. With that being said, there are so flaws with getting this camera. For starters you can only connect to it with your phone is if your cell service is good, if not you can’t connect to it. On top of that I can’t say for certain but the camera doesn’t start recording till you connect to your phone, which is the opposite of why I bought the nexar camera. It’s kind of a backwards process as far as having a dash cam. My camera also broke on me, which is unfortunate but I’m still standing behind this company, I just hope they fix the whole needing cell service in order to start recording. If I get in a accident and the camera didn’t catch the accident taking place, because of poor reception, then I have lost money with this camera, and lose even more if I lose the insurance claim.
Developer Response ,
We appreciate your feedback on the app and dashcam. On the other hand, although cellular data/service is needed by the app for getting your incidents uploaded, it isn't necessary for connecting your phone to the dashcam.
The dashcam mainly connects to your phone via Wi-Fi so once this is enabled along with Bluetooth, the app should recognize the dashcam and allow you to record.
In terms of auto-recording, please note that the dashcam can record on its own as soon as it receives power even without getting your phone connected. Though it's still ideal that your phone and dashcam are connected together, so your trips can be saved to your phone. This way, you can easily review them when needed (especially on incidents).
In case you need further assistance regarding this, please message our support team via the in-app chat or email us at email@example.com. Drive Safely. Nexar.
Best dashcam out there!!!
I have owned dashcams and mirrorcams before, but this one beats them all.... Hands down!!!
The clarity is totally amazing as is the sound. So many great features. I tested the hard brake feature and it worked like a charm. Came up ready to send to the issuance company or to share, or both.
I live up north and the drives are incredibly scenic, I have sent clips of my drives over the mountains to friends and family all over the world. And everyone said it was like they were right there on the drives! I also love the fact it's not going to die in the heat or the cold (which has killed my previous cameras) because of the wide variants in the temperatures. Great call!! I can see me owing and enjoying this camera for many years!
Now for the customer service... It can't be beat either! The team answer any questions very quickly and professionally, they are also like your new best friend! I've only had a few questions, and they were answered in no time and in full. You get to know each team member, not like other companies with so many different people. They make sure you're happy with the Nexar cam at all times and nothing is too much trouble.
The best camera, the best customer service. Win-win. You won't be disappointed!!!
