Deliberate car collisions are on the rise, and it’s often meant that the victims of these crimes end up being the driver targeted rather than the criminal. Your workforce come with many skills and traits some good some need improvement but how do you know if your drivers are keeping to best practice?
The simple solution to exonerating drivers, lowering insurance premiums, and claiming back where incidents have been historically in dispute is to install dashcams to your fleet of vehicles. Whether it's dashcams for car or truck dash cams, our range of cameras for vehicles will give you peace of mind over any issues surrounding driver safety from incidents or driver behaviour habits which can be monitored.Get a Quote
Quite simply, a dashcam is a camera dedicated to recording driver's journeys via a wide-angle lens.
Our hard-wired dash cams are professionally installed to create an almost invisible placement.
There are 3 main types of dashcam:
These latest-in-technology dashcams have all the top features to ensure that nothing is missed, and the picture quality is crisp in any condition.
As dashcams are legal on UK roads there is no licence or documentation required. Audio recording is not illegal either from a privacy perspective on internal cameras, but we mute as a preferred installation. We recommend using our installers, as, legally it must not block the view of the driver.
Our cameras do not have a screen either so drivers can not be distracted and potentially negate the insurance claim blaming distraction at fault.
You have a legal obligation to inform passengers if:
Most insurance companies recognise how having cameras helps drivers improve their driving efforts and having the ability to secure FNOL (first notification of loss) as evidence often leads to a reduction in insurance premiums which often help to subsidise the service.
As a lot of vehicle collisions aren’t clear-cut especially if there are no witnesses around so in a battle of your word against theirs the dashcam evidence can be the swing in favour of the driver saving excess costs and hikes in insurance premiums.
Our two main types of cameras are split by the way the content is stored and delivered.

As certain incidents occur when drivers are not in their vehicles our systems are designed to detect collisions and spring into action to record vital evidence should the driver at fault try and avoid leaving details.
A lot of our customers take our dashcams in addition to their existing vehicle tracking services. If you are looking for dashcams with GPS tracking for vans, cars, or trucks we can offer bundle packages to save your business money. Get in touch with our sales team or book a demo.

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 recognised 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.
GPS signal can be inhibited by other devices and systems in a vehicle (e.g. heated front windscreen). Please test the dash cam outside to see if the problem remains. The GPS receiver is located inside the mount for some models, please test a new mount if the dash cam doesn’t connect outside of the car connected to the mounting.
Please ensure that you have the latest version of Nextbase Replay 3. This can be downloaded from the Nextbase website (www.nextbase.co.uk). Please note that the minimum recommended requirements for Replay 3 are Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10 or Mac OS X 10.9 or higher, Processor: Intel Core i5, Memory: 4GB, Display resolution: 1280 x 720 or higher.
If videos are still not playing correctly please check that the videos play back correctly on the dash cam itself using Playback mode. This is usually accessed by pushing the Mode button twice.
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.
Yes especially with the HD files on the Nextbase dash cams, the continuous recording combined with continuous power causes the dash cam to heat up. Steps are taken within the dash cam design to ensure this heat dissipates as quickly as possible, therefor not causing any damage to the dash cam or SD card.
They are tested to up 50 °C, please note car interiors can exceed this if left in direct sunlight for prolonged periods of time.
