Buy on Amazon: Nextbase 512G

The Nextbase 512G is one of the most updated dashboard cameras available in the market at present. It supports full high definition recording at 1080p. The viewing angle is quite wide at 140-degree and the aperture is F/1.6. The device uses the latest Exmor Sensor from Sony. The IR night vision offers very clear night footage. It offers even the finest details. The drivers would certainly aid the intuitive wide dynamic range of the camera. The brightness levels are automatically adjusted according to the lighting conditions. This is actually the first camera in the world that integrated an anti-glare polarising system with the lens. This offers clearer images and abetter definition in sunlight. The windscreen glare is also reduced.

The GPS sensor is built into the device and makes rapid communications to let the drivers know about their positions. It is very convenient to record the coordinates and the speed of the vehicle. Drivers can notify the police and the insurers with detailed information. This would make the reports and the insurance claims rock solid. There is a G-Force sensor that would automatically trigger the File Protection Mode if the drivers braked too roughly or there is an impact. The parking mode keeps the vehicles secure from collisions and thefts on the occasion that you are not present. It would detect any motion outside the vehicle and record activities when the car is parked.

The device has ignition detection and would automatically activate as soon as the car starts. The LCD display is 7 cm and is a little too large for dash cams. The screen provides very clear images and offers instant playback. The power cable is quite lengthy.
