Giveaway – Nextbase 512GW Dash Cam Review

Nextbase 512GW Dash Cam Review

We love our Nextbase dash cam’s, infact most of Family Clan have a Nextbase in their cars, so when we was asked to review the NextBase 512GW of course we said yes.

The 512GW is a great dash cam and is that simple to use it works straight out of the box. The 512GW also has the ability of connecting a rear facing camera to it that records any incidents that occur on the road behind you, camera model number 512GWRC that can be added at a later date and the rear facing camera can also be used as a reversing camera that directly attaches to it and only requires the one power supply to run both of the cameras.

Combined with the 512GW, the two cameras will work simultaneously to record in full 1080p HD, with the rear camera footage displayed as either Picture in Picture (PiP) or alternatively in full screen mode.


Some of the specs

  • Quad HD1440P recording
  • 3.0 LCD Colour Screen
  • 140° wide angle 6 element glass lens
  • Intelligent Parking Mode
  • GPS Logging
  • Power Mount
  • Polarizing filter
  • Magnetic Click & Go Mount
  • Night Time Auto Dimming

All these are a great advantage in a dash cam. The clear recording at 1440p Quad HD is amazing quality on play back. It’s so clear even when viewing night footage. It records at 30 fps (frames per second) when in 1440p HD, but can also record at 1080p at 60fps.

Extra Features

There is also a 140° wide angle which enables all the action on both sides of the road to be captured which is great as not everything happens directly in front of you. So with this feature it also makes it a greater chance of catching and recording all of an incident as it happens.

The GPS records location and also speed data that can be viewed on Google Maps™ using Nextbase’s Replay 3™ software. You can also play, edit and share the footage using the Replay 3™ software (Windows 7 or later require).

I love that I can easily play and share my videos, on my smartphone or tablet which is done by using the free Nextbase Cam Viewer™ App which is compatible with Android and Apple smartphone and tablets.

The night time auto dimming is a great addition, this means that the screen will automatically dim when in use at night. This stops it being a distraction when doing night driving.

The innovative polarising filter removes windscreen glare and reflections. This ensures the best possible picture quality on your recordings.

Isn’t it pretty amazing that such a small device has so many additional feature, everything really has been thought through when they made this dash cam.

Our Thoughts

Having previously reviewed the Nextbase 312GW ,the 312GW in Rose Gold, and 112 Go, we know how reliable and well made these dash cams are. You can see the whole range of Nextbase dash cams on their website.

A Nextbase Dash Cam would make a great, but thoughtful gift this Mother’s Day. Giving you and your Mum peace of mind when out travelling knowing you have caught all the details should anything untoward happen.

    When my car was written off last year due to a speeder coming through red lights but they denied this

    following tractors with no indicators and overloaded, would help me inform the police, as nobody is above the law,

    Not long after I passed my test it was a stormy day and I was driving home past a parked up curtain-sider lorry – as I drove past the clip from the curtain-sider swung out, hit and smashed my windscreen from the side! It took ages to sort it out with the company and with a dash cam I’d have been able to prove it wasn’t my fault

    I was driving to Somerset from Wales overtaking in the third lane when the car in the middle lane decides to pull into our lane without looking. I got right over and must have been centimetres away from this short concrete bit deviding both sides of the motorway. Luckily he noticed before he hit us but it was such a close call and our kids were in the back. I was shaking and felt sick but had to keep going because I was on a flipping motorway! Some peoples driving is unbelievable and a dashcam would be useful

  6. janine atkin

    i once saw a cyclist get knocked off a bike at a roundabout and the driver just drove off

  7. Mike Brundell

    There have been so many times I wished I had a dash cam.

  8. lorraine kirk

    It would have been useful when I drove past a shop I liked on holiday and got back wanting to look it up on the internet and couldn’t remember what it was called! (not sure that’s the purpose of them but it would have been handy anyway!)

  9. Debi Gillard

    When we had a car in front of us on the A1 which was swerving across all 3 lanes terrifying everyone – when we stopped at light the old lady driving was clearly texting with her phone nestled in her lap!

  10. Natalie Crossan

    My Mum was in an unfortunate situation whereby a driver backed into her, he then contested it with the insurance company – the dash cam would have helped but fortunately there were witnesses
