It is that time of year again when we will be looking more into dash cams and home security as the short days will be coming in soon however with dash cams I have always said it they are a worthy investment and for all year use. We have covered all of the previous Nextbase dashcams and now they have a new line of cameras on offer under their series 2 models and this time round we have the 522GW with rear camera to go with it.

Today we will have a quick unboxing and I also go through the system UI which is user friendly and touch based which is great and it is easy to set up, The dash cam is more or less ready to go out of the box but you can look at the settings below in the video should you wish to change anything, You will need a class 10 micro sd card on this model as our older one would not work so keep that in mind.

Key Features: 1440p HD resolution at 30 fps, Inbuilt Polarising Filter, 3” HD IPS touch screen, 140° viewing angle, 10Hz GPS Module, Bluetooth 4.2 , Wi-Fi via MyNextbase Connect and PC/Mac software – MyNextbase Play

Note- For this product a U3 class microSD card is required.
