Nextbase dash cams come out top in Which? reviews

Dash cams are a useful safety device to record incidents in front of your car and thwart "cash for crash" and other scumbag claims where good quality evidence is needed to rebuff them. With a 140 degree angle forward recording view that is good coverage. In our previous reviews Nextbase have come out well with the Which? magazine showing the Nextbase models as "best buys". In the latest Which? dash cam review three Nextbase dash cams come out as "best buys".

The basic model - Nextbase 222 at only £54 - will meet most enthusiasts' needs and is particularly suitable for fitting to a classic car as the device can be hidden behind the rear view mirror and comply with the required forward view requirements through the swept windscreen area. The dash cams are powered by a lead to the cigar lighter plug but Halfords offer an installation service which "hard wires" the supply cable. That may suit a daily use car more than a classic car where the dangling power lead to the cigar lighter is not a serious problem.
