Nextbase 622GW Review: 4k DVR with Great Features

I drove my car around the block with the flagship Nextbase 622GW DVR and quickly realized that I needed this technology.

I finally got the chance to join an elite club in Australia and become a member of Australia’s famous dash cam owners Facebook and YouTube pages.

Nextbase sent me their Nextbase 622GW flagship dash cam for review, so I installed it and drove my car around the block in western Sydney.

One trip was enough to solidify the fact that I need a DVR in my car.

It’s amazing what shenanigans people do on the roads all the time – and the 622GW captures it all clearly in 4K.

As I was walking down the street, I noticed a man with a pram running across the road near a stop sign.

I slowed down to stop and watched in horror as another car sped by.

Luckily, no one was hurt, but if there was an incident, it would be nice to have footage.

Passing by the train station, I had to stop quickly when the car suddenly reversed.

I know drivers with red “P”s already have a bad rap – you didn’t do yourself any favors in this situation, mate!

It is clear that with this camera – and the quality of the drivers in my area – I will soon be submitting an application to dash cam owners in Australia.

The incidents really got the point across – DVRs can provide important video evidence to prove you’re not at fault and help settle an insurance claim.

The setup was relatively easy.

Installing the camera took only a few minutes. And the dash cam is quite easy to use thanks to the touch screen and user-friendly menus.

You can also use Alexa voice commands, which can be configured on both Apple and Android phones.

The dash cam has GPS and Wi-Fi, which means you can connect the device to your phone, allowing you to easily share footage.

What the Nextbase 622GW offers

The Nextbase 622GW has a lot of really cool specs and security features.

In terms of specifications, it has ultra-clear 4K recording at 30fps and digital image stabilization.

You can also rotate the bezel on the camera to capture even clearer video.

It can perform well in extreme weather conditions with built-in algorithms to ensure the clearest picture possible.

The camera also supports 120 fps super slow motion, perfect for capturing a license plate after an accident. The 622GW also has improved night vision, which is very important considering how many accidents happen at night. Nextbase reports that the dash cam uses larger pixels to allow more light to enter each one, with the camera automatically detecting the light level.

One of the best features is the ability to set up EmergencySOS. This allows the device to automatically notify emergency services if you are involved in an accident, even if the driver is not responding. It is also possible to share a medical history and blood type.

Using the built-in what3words feature, you can find yourself with an accuracy of up to three meters.

The Nextbase 622GW has a built-in G-sensor that can detect shock and record.

There is also an intelligent parking mode that can automatically record if your car is hit, ideal for situations where your car is left in a parking lot or next to a busy road.

What wrap

The Nextbase 622GW is worth buying if you want peace of mind in the event of an accident. The incredible video quality is also a standout feature.

This is definitely a purchase from me.
