The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Participation in this promotion shall be on a “first come, first served” basis and is limited The promotion will be valid until the depletion of the stock. Nexar reserves the right to terminate this promotion at any time, at its sole discretion.

Our Verdict

The price is $95 and you get a full rebate (including tax). Interestingly if you go here the price is actually $49 so it might be possible to file a price protection claim if you use a credit card and make some profit although some people won’t be comfortable with this ethically. Keep in mind Nexar is also obviously going to use your data.

Hat tip to SD

This reminds me of an old joke:
Someone won a free car wash at a raffle. His friend asked him, how will you use it, you don’t drive? He answered, no worries I’ll take a cab…

Nexar .. is constantly sending all that data back to its Israel-based servers for analysis. So, the more it’s used, the better the system gets. <– If I use it, shall I be classified as a Foreign Agent? 🙂

Thanks, will pass based on this.

I took advantage of the free offer last time. It was fulfilled pretty quickly, and includes sales tax paid. It’s a virtual mastercard. Was a bit worried if the company went belly up, they’d find a way to make it not valid, so I used it on venmo. Still haven’t gotten around to mounting it (semi-)permanently yet.

how long does it take for the phone footages to be uploaded to their cloud?

After you take 3 drives with the dash cam connected to your phone, uploading data to the cloud, you can disconnect the dash cam from your phone and still receive the rebate. Once disconnected, the dash cam records to the included SD card only.

That said, it’s a low quality camera. Better dash cams don’t run more than $50. Some will be less.

Thanks. I still hadn’t gotten around to checking what ends up on the card when I forget my burner phone. (the one with the nexar app on it) I was wondering how it works in that mode.

How does one go about getting the rebate after receiving the cam and using it for 3 trips?

You go to the “rebate eligibility” page they give you… it’s the nexar dashboard and it ends in something like /mycamera

Just received mine, signed-up, and installed the cam. Never received the “rebate eligibility” page. Do you have a link?

Same here. Nothing in the box. Nothing in the app about rebate.

Dashcam is most likely illegal in California.
This is because you cannot mount anything in the middle of the windshield.

john

Huh? No. Dash cams are legal in California and you can mount them in the upper center middle of the windshield.

Alan

The limit is 5 sq inch. I believe it is bigger than that.

Not illegal, plenty of mounting options, but definitely not smack dab in the middle of your windhsield…

It’s crap anyways. 720p is horrible for a dashcam. Head over to https://www.reddit.com/r/dashcam to pay for better picks.

It could be changed into 1080p actually. The cam is from a Chinese company and you could modify settings with its app (HaloCam).

I haven’t gotten my dash cam yet. so from what I understand, just make a nexar account and then pair the dash cam with the phone app. Make 3 trips of at least 5 miles each and then upload the footage to the cloud? Or do I not need to upload anything? Thanks!

sonia

for those who used this dash cam, I currently have my 3 rides on my phone. How do I upload the videos to the cloud or will it be done automatically? And how long does the process take? thanks

Depends on how fast your internet is. I’ve got android and it usually starts syncing when it pops onto my wifi. If you log into the nexar dashboard, you can see what they have. There’s some settings in the app so that you can tweak this.

I’ve completed 5 drives but still got this message when checking the rebate status:
The minimum of 3 drives, more than 5 miles each, wasn’t reached. You drove using the Nexar app and your cellphone camera, you need to complete at least 3 drives with dashcam.

Did 2 more trips and finally it showed eligible.
