Didn’t work for me



You are correct, the additional camera does not take off 10%. Still not bad, i got the 522GW with rear camera for £131.60. Thanks OP, i was literally about to buy the 422GW from halfords for £129.00!

A bit weird. It says 10% reduction added on the rear cam at checkout and then hasn't applied it. Maybe worth contacting them about it?
Don't forget possible upto 10% top up on Quidco/Topcashback payout on Halfords e-gift card withdrawals although need to wait 2 to 4 working days for code.
Plus normal cashback when buying through them.
Has the 10% AA discount ended?
Heat added my friend....
What’s the best SD card to put in one of these?

Put it in the basket with the camera and ad the code and it comes out to an extra £24.50
Does this have a thermostat?
Thanks for this, just picked up today & used an additional 10% discount (via my work - a few large companies have this discount) so worked out as £118 for the 522GW and rear camera! Thanks OP, been waiting ages for a good deal on these!!

Seemed like the click and collect receipt didn’t show the online discount, so they gave me the normal discount on top of it..!!
poor design on these, the rear camera plugs into the main unit, would of been better if it plugged into the mount, good price though for the bundle
Just got mine last week and it is a great camera, love that the power supply goes into the mount rather than the camera making it infinitely more convenient to remove and store and comes with the polarising lens which once adjusted really improves the image.

Shame about the woeful Nextbase app though. It is dreadful and the wifi connection doesn't work.

Great, have been looking at this camera and using the code with the rear camera it takes off more for some reason so happy days. Wish there was a way you could use all three cameras as apposed to just the two but at least got all round coverage. £130 for the two, cant argue with that!

I had the same issue and found a way around this.Assuming your camera has already done a firmware upgrade?

1) On your phone, uninstall your app.
2) On the Dashcam, go to settings and then default settings.
3) Re-install the app on your phone
4) Make the wi-fi connection/live view with the cam
5) change all the settings back to how you want them on the dashcam.

The above worked for me, app works fine now.

Thank you very much - I will try this out when I get home tonight! And yes, the firmware upgrade was the very first thing I did.

Definitely give this a try. I have been trying to get this app to work for a little bit and it just wasn't playing ball, could never connect via the WiFi for the live view. Followed these instructions and it is now working, so fingers crossed it stays this way! Not a great app it has to be said, not very highly rated which is a concern going forward! Cheers krazie2004

Just wanted to say thank you again. I tried this last night and it did indeed fix the issue!
I really appreciate you taking the time to post it up.
If you use the 522GW with an add on camera, in parking mode you only get two 30 second videos before the Low Battery warning comes up and it turns itself off. Nextbase's comment we recommend leaving it permanently on the car power when using the add on camera. This means that it doesn't start and stop automatically when turning the ignition on and off and if you get out of the car forgetting to turn it off the screen will stay on and continue to record. Basically the add on camera canes the 522GW battery.

Brilliant.

Surely leaving it on 24x7 would cane the SD card and if long enough, also the car battery. This seems very poorly managed by the software.
