Saw this on the front page on ebay, thought I'd try it out.

Though the casing seems quite plasticky and the screen is just Ok- the image quality of the recording is pretty good. GPS works, G-sensor works (parking knocks etc), quick release works well and the kit is complete so no need anything extra really.
Menus were basic but functional, nothing technical which is nice. If I were being really picky, they could've included cable clips for part of runs where you cant hide it in the car lining.

Sale ends tomorrow sometime?

its decent enough, not always get shot of reg plates but image is pretty clear.
Wife and I have had one in each car for over 2 years now, neither has skipped a beat.
Seems a bargain, got the 70mai myself form ebay, a fiver more expensive but has a Sony sensor, voice control and a 1.8 aperture. Which ever way you go, dash cam's seem like a necessity these days.
I've got this one, bought off eBay from the same seller. It's just ok, camera angle is really wide and night is decent nothing special. The main reason for purchase was the 5% discount and the fact that some insurers only accept the Nextbase branded cameras
Would advise formatting card every couple of days because if insurance company or police request it they will scrutinise your driving history whether an accident is your fault or not.

Just give them the file not the card? They don't need the card... Nor will I trust they will return my card after.

However, if they do accept physical cards - one can do something malicious and they will be none the wiser (virus/malware etc). Think of the possibilities of ransomware I bet people crash on purpose to get access to police/insurance companies. Oceans 9 film plot right there.

Which insurance only accept nextbase? Seems pretty specific/sponsored...

I concur with you the physical quality and specs are meh/'good' for the price but I'm buying for the reliability/brand..

Last time I checked, telling the insurance company you had a dash cam only lowered the premium a nominal amount. In my opinion, that amount wasn't worth the hassle. I drive with a camera, I wouldn't not these days, but I'd rather the handing over of that footage to the insurance companies be at my discretion.

I've not had any dealings with Nextbase cameras, this seems like a reasonable price for a branded camera. Voted hot.

I can recommend the "YI Dash Cam 1080p 60fps" on Amazon. You can get them for closer to £35 when they're a lightning deal, which seems to be every other week. The app that they supply is serviceable, albeit a little slow when transferring full files over wifi. But it does offer the facility to crop videos down before transferring.

In some cases i.e. fatalities or serious injuries the police will seize the camera and the card at the scene.

If they can see from your driving history you aren't a careful or considerate driver it could seriously affect you and your claim whether the actual accident is your fault or not.

Once the police have it the defence are entitled to it and you'd better hope they can't find anything to use against you or even just show you are a bad driver.

Bit extreme. If I'm driving down a single carriageway national speed limit road at 60mph and someone on their phone veers onto my side, the result is a nasty head on collision in which they and their passenger die. The police would seize my dashcam footage and find out what happened.

Sure my previous driving may have been classed as 'dangerous' with 'excessive use of speed'. However, at the time of the crash I was doing 60mph and on my side of the road. There is no way I'd get done for any crimes relating to the crash.

It would be up to the police and CPS if they wanted to charge me for any previous driving offences relating to my dashcam footage. Unlikely.
You are probably right. I am talking more from the insurance side of things. If it can be proven that you constantly drive above the limit or without due care and attention your insurance company could argue that your insurance is invalidated, so if you survive the accident where would that leave you?

Also, there are cases where historical charges have been brought for evidence on dashcams that has come to the police's attention just as there has been for those that stupidly post offences on social media.

If you dont want to take the advice that's your choice but personally I wouldnt want them going over my driving history looking for every tiny driving error to get out of paying up.

I'm not saying I'm a bad driver but I'm talking about day to day stuff like turning without indicating, do this on a regular basis and you can bet your insurance company will make you out to be a bad driver, put it together with a few creeps over the speed limit and you're a criminal. Believe me.

Not really sure how the rules of insurance work. All I know is I pay them £600 every year. Would the police be able to just hand over a memory card containing clips to the insurance company? Data protection and all that jazz?

I always drive with my dashcam on as I feel safer should anything happen. If it backfires on me one day then so be it. I shall deal with the consequences or take the easy way out and top myself.

Like I said, if the Police have it the defence and insurance are also entitled to have it DP or not.

Happy driving.
I would never allow the police to seize my property without a warrant ! Each Police officer has a known percentage to prosecute each month ! They often travel Round and round big motorway intersections to find people to prosecute ! I know this as i fought them in Court over me going through an amber light ! It took me 3 days to get the case dismissed as their evidence was all Lies, You would not believe the amount of people i met sat in them courts for 3 days, all similar stories to me and all working folk representing themselves as they could not afford a solicitor and were not entitled to legal aid ! Alway protect your own interests when involved in any motoring discrepancies

You dont need a warrant to seize evidence, warrants are for searching and, if you were in such a setious accident I think your dashcam would be the last thing on your mind.

So what your stating is your dash cams useless, as if the police pull you over for one of their fabricated road traffic violations they can seize your dashcam and get rid of the evidence And thats exactly what they can do ! anything they like, So yes the first thing i’d do is hide the flash card ! and film on my phone everything 🏻ps i never mentioned accidents ! not the reason i would buy a dash cam at all, but i note you mention it to get your argument over

So if you think you would have the awareness and capability to search for and hide your cards you have never been in or seen a serious accident. I think in reality you'd be more concerned about living than scrambling around trying to hide any incriminating evidence. And not all police are bent...have you not seen line of duty?

What accident?? Who mentioned accident? Oh, I did and then you decided to join in with some lefty speech on how all police are corrupt and how you are a bad driver and how you would destroy the evidence...need I go on...? You missed the point so much you might as well be driving on the moon 😁 Drive carefully or you may have to sell your sole to afford a decent lawyer.

I hadn't realised they were still selling the Yi, last I looked (back in April) it was no longer available. To give you a comparison, I have the Yi 60fps in my MR2 roadster. The quality isn't as good as the SJ4000 in the family wagon (even though that only does 30fps) and I seem to be having major DAB interference problems since hard wiring, but the app on the Yi is much better than the SJCAM one.

My mum (also has an MR2) wanted a dashcam, I fitted the 412GW. The parking mode was a waste of time (every time you open or shut the car door it created a write-protected file and fast fills up the card from what I can tell), but for her as someone not techy, it seemed an OK bit of kit and the video was better than my Yi.
