Nextbase launches top-of-the-range 522GW
The final instalment in the Which?, T3 and Sunday Times Driving Award-winning Series 2 range.
Captures outstanding HD footage in 1440p at 30fps, or 1080p at 60fps and comes equipped with a polarising lens, ensuring crystal clear imagery – no matter the time of day or weather conditions.
Features multiple world-firsts, with its Emergency SOS system, Bluetooth 4.2 and built-in Alexa voice control.
Nextbase, the UK’s top-selling and multi-award-winning dash cam manufacturer, has released the final instalment in its Series 2 range – the 522GW. It is the most technologically advanced in the range, containing ground-breaking technology and boasting an array of world-first features.
At three inches, the 522GW boasts a larger HD IPS touch screen than its counterparts in Nextbase’s award-winning Series 2 range. A user’s playback experience will be further heightened by the footage itself, as the camera possesses a 140-degree viewing angle that has been shot by a six-layer glass camera lens. Capturing in 1440p at 30fps, or 1080p at 60fps respectively, the product guarantees crystal clear image quality.
The 522GW is also equipped with Bluetooth 4.2, which facilitates Nextbase’s new Autosync function. Autosync makes sharing and saving footage from the Dash Cam easier than ever before. Using Bluetooth 4.2 low-energy technology, files can be transferred to a smartphone in a matter of seconds. Once on a phone, it is quick and easy to edit and share the video with an insurer using the MyNextbase Connect App (on Android and iOS).
Nextbase Autosync also ensures that the 522GW is automatically connected to the owner’s phone as soon as they enter the vehicle. This facilitates the Alexa voice-control and Emergency SOS functions.
The product’s Emergency SOS system has the potential to help save lives on the roads. In the event of an accident where the driver is unresponsive, or unable to move, Nextbase Emergency SOS can alert the emergency services to their exact location, as well as let them know any important details about the victim beforehand – such as allergies and blood type.
The 522GW is also one of two new products in the Nextbase range to be the first-ever to include built-in Alexa voice control. Just like the in-home Alexa, users can ask Alexa to skip a song, find directions, or control smart home devices whilst on the move. However, having it built-in to the vehicle allows a motorist to perform all of these tasks, as well as to control the Dash Cam itself, without having to take their hands off the wheel or eyes off the road.
Following its launch earlier in 2019, the 522GW has gone on to win multiple awards. It was awarded the ‘Best Dash Cam’ Award by T3, and also recognised as the ‘Innovation of the Year’ by Sunday Times Driving during its inaugural Awards ceremony. Which? has given the product Best Buy status, whilst the 522GW was named ‘Dash Camera of the Year’, by Honest John.
The 522GW is available at an RRP of £149.00 from high street supplies such as Halfords, Currys, and Argos, both online and in-store.
