Fleet vehicle cameras are legal on Canadian roads without the need for a license or documentation either. However, if you intend to have audio recording activated then if there is ever a second person in your vehicle, you must make sure that they are aware that there is a dash cam with audio capabilities within the vehicle. As a general though, we mute as a preferred installation. We recommend that you use our installers, as, legally, the dash cam must not block the view of the driver.
Our commercial fleet dash cams do not have a screen either so drivers are not distracted which could potentially negate any insurance claim blaming distraction at fault.
If you have any passengers in your vehicle you have a legal obligation to inform them if:
Most insurance companies recognise how fleet dash cam systems help drivers to improve their driving efforts and having the ability to secure FNOL (first notification of loss) as the evidence often leads to a reduction in insurance premiums which often helps to subsidise the service.
A lot of vehicle collisions aren't clear-cut, especially if there are no witnesses around at the time.

The dash cam will automatically delete the oldest file and replace it with a new one, ensuring you have the most relevant data on the SD card. There are two reasons the dash cam will report this error message, either the SD card is not working correctly and cannot overwrite once its full or it has become full of protected files.
Check the SD card is class 10, between 8Gb and 128Gb, a recognized brand and not counterfeit. You can contact our Technical Support Centre with photos of both sides of the SD card and we can assist you in confirming the above, the card manufacturer can also assist with this.
Please remove the SD card and any power cables, then press reset button until it clicks.
Then with the SD card out, press and hold the on button for 5 seconds, this should reset the unit.

The calculation of speed is based upon GPS position and hence distance travelled over time taken. This is a complicated algorithm and there may indeed be some discrepancy between devices, as it is a calculated speed, not an actual speed as measured by your road wheels.
In our tests, once multiple satellites have been located the speed is accurate to within 5%. Normally however, vehicle manufacturers always tend to be optimistic in their display of speed.
Once downloaded, the files are stored inside the App in the downloaded videos folder, from here they can be shared.
Note: If you’re using Nextbase Replay 3 on a Mac operating system, you cannot update via the USB cable it must be done via a card reader.
