Mentioned this before, it's a absolutely terrible camera. Don't bother

Agreed.....
I thought which? said it was the best there was.
From memory the comments were not about quality of image or features which are all no doubt brilliant. It seemed to be more about reliability where users were reporting a month ir so of use before overheating and a multitude if issues.

Yeah they did, it's worrying. All those commendations are complete b$ - they've all gone down in my book.

I've personally owned two, they are bad to the point of being dangerous (heat)

Probably because they have got their hands on a collection of devices only to review that day, not to live with.

Calm down, all I did was ask why it’s such a terrible product. At the time I was posting all people had done was say it was terrible without evidencing why; subsequent posts explained why and I’ll ‘take the advice’

I've got the 522GW and had it 3-4 weeks now (Halfords hardwired). The cam itself is pretty good to be honest. Nice clear pictures, simple to use, neatly tucked away behind the rear view mirror and not bad for £ Vs features.

The downside, is the app which is horrific so I'd imagine all NextBase cams will utilise it.
- poor connection
- incredibly slow at downloading files.
- 1 minute file = 200mb.
- Disconnects all the time
I’ve had a couple of 522s for well over a year now. I haven’t bothered with the app so can’t comment on it - I always just pop the SD card out if I want to download images. The cameras have both been reliable with no overheating and the images are good.
Is this reliability issue for all nextbase or just this model?

The 522 was only released a couple of months ago.

Just this one. Old model as well.

The x22 is the new range, whereas x12 is old.
I don't get the big deal about nextbase. They're massively over priced for specs. Poor app and really nothing special.

I've a 70mai pro and YI Smart Dash Cam. Both will record in excess of 1080p. Built in WiFi etc. I've had the YI for over 3 years and not a single issue. And both cost less than £40 each.
I noticed this on sale at Halfords for £109, seems Amazon have matched it at £109 too. I have one reserved at Halfords but the comments on this thread are putting me off. Are they really best avoided or is it worth a punt at £109? I'm looking to replace my Nextbase 402G.

Same here. Looking to buy a new cam as last one was pinched (Transcend 220 - was decent). Now looking at one with rear cam capabilities (still deciding whether to use a separate cam for rear).

The 522GW is £118 at Amazon and Honest John seems to like it. Anyone have any personal experience of the 522GW model?
I have one of these dash cams I did have trouble to start with all the above comments you have all said I will tell you all to buy a descent micro sd card at nothing less than 64 gig and must be 3 u on it if you put one of these in your troubles are over and don’t buy one off eBay a lot of them are copys hope this sets everyone out good luck it worked for me
