The Wi-Fi feature in Nextbase Dash Cams enable you to download and share video and photo files directly to your phone or tablet. You can then share footage with your family, friends, insurance provider or the police. Videos can easily be shared via all the major sharing platforms including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, as well as directly via the Nextbase website. The Nextbase App acts as your own personal storage point for all Nextbase clips.
Wi-Fi can be very useful when you need to send a clip to your insurance provider after an incident has taken place. Instead of having to wait for access to a PC or Mac you can send over the relevant footage using your mobile device. The footage can also be edited before sending, enabling you to trim the video, remove audio and compress the file. A link is then provided for your insurance company to download after sending.
The Dash Cam does not need to be removed from the vehicle to use Wi-Fi and it eliminates the need for having to use a PC to view the footage on as you can directly store the footage on your phone. There is no need to remove the SD card or use the cables provided, saving you time and effort.
Dash Cam models recording at a higher resolution (1440p HD and 4K) record both high res and low res file. The low res file allows for efficient streaming and sharing, so the clip can be downloaded in a quicker time and has less buffering time.
The Wi-Fi connection is set up directly between the Dash Cam and the phone/tablet. It means you do not have to use mobile data, or a Wi-Fi hotspot, as the Nextbase Wi-Fi can be turned on easily by holding the Wi-Fi button for up to 3 seconds on the Dash Cam or manually via the setup menu for the cam.
All current Nextbase Dash Cam models have Wi-Fi, excluding the 112 and 212 models.
