The Nextbase 412GW is the latest offering in a new range of Dash Cams from Nextbase and features WiFi and a ‘Click & Go’ powered screen mount
Other new features include Quad HD 1440p resolution, recording at 30 frames-per-second, via 140-degree wide angle, six-element sharp lenses made up of six layers of glass to provide amazingly clear images to capture the important information such as number plate and road sign detail. Combined with High Dynamic Range (HDR) to improve the contrast of an image while maintaining superb clarity in both bright and dark lighting conditions.
The 412GW is equipped with a 3” LED screen with touch buttons for ease of access. In the event of an accident, the 412GW can be instantly accessed to capture all the evidence which can be used in the event of a claim.
SOS Data Protection prevents any crucial events from being deleted, while the inbuilt GPS receiver provides essential data such as speed and accurate location, which may be required by Insurers or the Police in the event of an accident.
Another new feature is the addition of built-in WiFi to review, download and share footage instantly to your mobile phone or tablet by using the Nextbase Cam Viewer app (available on IOS and Android). The app is your personal mobile storage for recorded footage that you may want to keep and share with friends and family and if required, to forward to an insurance company or even the Police.
Using GPS receiver and G sensor to record location, speed and force data to help provide important vehicle impact information.
The powered ‘Click & Go’ screen mount is a new innovation which allows the camera to be permanently powered and easily removed if required. Utilising magnets and powered touch points, allowing the camera to be free from wires.
The mount can be powered with either the supplied 12 volt, 4-metre power cable connected to an auxiliary power socket. Alternatively, the mount can be permanently hard-wired by using a Hardwire Kit (optional) specifically designed to be used with the comprehensive range of Nextbase Dash Cams.
The user can choose from various options within the menu system, such as switching the Audio recording on/off, Video length (2, 3 or 5 minutes), Parking Mode, Resolution, Exposure and many other functions. Easy to use control buttons are flush to the screen and touch-sensitive, with illumination for easy navigation in dark conditions.
As can be seen in the above photo, in daylight conditions the quality of the image is superb with massive amounts of detail, even the name of the hotel in the distance can be read clearly
Images captured in poor lighting conditions are still incredibly crisp and clear with superb clarity of stationary objects
When fitted in a Honda CR-V, the 412GW had to sit lower down on the screen with the suction mount due to the top middle section having a painted section. With the size of the Dash Cam and the lower position, it was found to be a bit too intrusive on the drivers’ visibility, but by using the self-adhesive mount provided it was able to be repositioned further up the screen behind the mirror. It’s worth bearing in mind that a Dash Cam should not be fitted in the swept area (Drivers’ windscreen wiper zone) to obstruct visibility.
Overall, the 412GW performed incredibly well in all lighting conditions with easy to use controls and features. It really does seem to be a fit-and-forget driving aid, and hopefully, not one that will need to be used in anger.
