  • Nextbase 612GW Dash Cam is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The most expensive awful experience I have now bought 2 of these camera's. The first had serious problems as it would simply lock up and stop recording for no particular reason. Having found that the firmware was 6 versions out of date I tried to update it but the camera because "bricked" and had to be returned. As this camera is so good "on paper" and the polarization filter is a great idea i thought i would give a second one a go, ensuring the battery was fully charged before attempting an upgrade i successfully updated the camera to the latest firmware. Upgrading the firmware requires a card to be in the camera except that the process rendered the SD card completely useless, a reformat would not solve it and the camera could not recognize the presence of a card and the computer could not do anything with it. I was only able to use the card again having performed a "full " reformat that takes around 30 minutes on a 64GB card. Having upgraded the camera and got the SD card recognizable again This seems somewhat more stable but there are still problems. Firstly you cannot activate the "G sensor" or rather you have to go and disable it because even on medium setting pulling round a bend of going over some of those vibration strips they put across the road at junctions will set it off. once set off it locks the current file to stop it being overwritten - OK - but then it stops recording leaving you to fiddle with the camera while driving (illegal) to get it going again. So G sensor disabled completely as realistically it's not necessary with 200 minutes of recording things are better however if your planing to make a quick get away with this camera think again and make sure you go through the correct procedure. I would recommend you keep your battery fully charged at all times to minimize power delivery problems as the camera is VERY sensitive to dips in main power supply. So even with a full battery if you power up and start your car engine the dip in power supply is enough to upset the camera and it stops recording. Not only does it stop recording but it cannot be made to start recording again and neither can you turn the camera off. fortunately there is a reset button on the bottom of the camera, you will need something like a pen handy to press this. The camera will be forcibly switched off, I say forcibly because when you power it back up (you have to turn it back on it won't do a reset as in a computer having it's reset button pressed) it will "recover", your troubles will not be over yet as it could still lock up during this process and be left with a blank screen saying "recovering" the recovery should take a matter of seconds so if it takes longer then do the whole reset thing again, you might get lucky. Given how flaky the power supply reliability is to this camera I am rather worried if it will work at all once the battery starts to deteriorate. I have seen batteries last as little as 2 years in the past so given the cost of this camera this short life expectancy is a problem. for a device that should just work I am staggered by the instability of this machine that weighs in at quite a price. I am happy that it is value for money if it were to do all that it says on paper but it in fact requires careful handling to prevent failure and simply getting in your car and powering it is not a plan. I dearly hope that future firmware updates will solve these problems.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Style & quality - Nextbase 612GW Elite 4K Dashcam The 612GW is the first model from Nextbase which records video at 4K resolution (2160p) on a 3” capacitive 960x240 16:9 touchscreen. The major difference you will see is the brushed metal finish – which gives the dashcam a classy expensive appearance. If you want a stealth dashcam – this will not be it – the front of the unit looks smart but it is going to be noticeable through your windscreen. New features incorporated this time around include: 2 file sizes: A dual file option which records a low-res file (ideal for wi-fi transfers) alongside its 4K counterpart. The low-res file can be turned off via the menu if you choose to do so. Being 4K the file sizes are of course twice that of earlier recent models, so a decent sized memory card is recommended, either 64Gb or 128Gb, and really needs to be the newer U3 class micro SD card, which have the speed to capture 4K data. 15 minutes of video used around 5Gb of space on my card – the manual suggests 200 minutes will fit on a 64Gb memory card and therefore 400 minutes on a 128Gb card. Voice confirmation: When you start and stop recording you can turn on voice confirmation mode – though I have not used it for other features or in the menus, so I do not know if it speaks to you when you protect a file for instance. Touchscreen Menu: The controls for operation of menu items are on the screen now rather than down the sides of the screen. This is not only much tidier than previously, but means the unit is a smaller size and the compact design looks all the better for it. The icons are clear and obvious, but also have text to describe them though the actual icons are ideal. There are 5 pages and each has 6 further options included. Here you can change many parameters such as video length, resolution, exposure etc., and each press responds quickly to your touch. The screen is capacitive, so gloves will not work – you’ll need your finger tips! Lens and sensor: A new lens from Nextbase is a 7G, 150° wide angle f.1/6 lens and an 8.57 megapixel photo sensor that give excellent clarity. Speed display: Once the screensaver kicks in you can set the screen to display your speed. Other features as expected are the GPS Logger, Wi-Fi connectivity, G Sensor / File protection, Intelligent parking mode, time-lapse, auto dimming (of the screen) and a built in polarising filter (which works brilliantly). To set up the polarising filter correctly, a good way of doing it is leave a mobile phone on the dashboard with the white Google home page open and rotate the filter until the mobile phone disappears from your windscreen reflection!) In the box you get all the usual – the 612GW unit, a powered GPS mount, an adhesive and a suction cup mount, power cable, USB cable, a window sticker, quickstart guide and a software disk with full instructions manual. There are 2 indicators on the rear of the unit – red and blue for recording and battery power. On the top of the unit is a well-proportioned power button and the DC-In & USB socket (beneath a rubber cover). Below the unit is a reset button and the light sensor, and here you will find your serial number too. On the right hand side is the HD out socket (covered) and the “protect” button for preserving important moments. On the left hand side is the microphone (reasonably efficient) and the Micro SD card slot. The video is very, very good. Playback on my Samsung S8 is remarkably clear, and sent to my Panasonic 4K television it is excellent, even under the dull conditions my first tests have been done under. Night scenes are well exposed (if slightly grainy) but there is so much to see despite it being dark – the exposure is more than acceptable, especially considering that the polariser in place too. Highlights on reg plates burn out but I accept that as being almost unavoidable due to brightness and reflectivity of metal/plastic number plates. The touchscreen menu is so intuitive and simple to navigate, responsive and an improvement over earlier models, however it is not hi-res so for video playback you’ll want to use your computer or TV, or mobile phone. The GPS latches on quite quickly, and has different colours for the signal strength – green being the best signal. I think any perspective buyers would be more than satisfied with purchasing the 612GW Elite – I cannot deny this is the best quality I have personally seen myself and I would have no hesitation in recommending it. The expected price point of £250 may be a stumbling block for some but for that you will get quality dashcam that will serve you well.
