Halfords releases Nextbase range of in-car dash cameras

Halfords has announced a new line of dash-cams, with the Nextbase range set to give drivers the ability to reveal the truth behind car accidents.

Capturing the view through a car's windscreen in real-time, the recorders are able to capture events before, during and after any collision.

The footage can help drivers resolve insurance claims, proving the fraudulent behaviour of "crash for cash" scammers who deliberately cause accidents and lie about the number of passengers in their car.

The range of recording devices we now offer means that we can provide drivers with the means to produce evidence of how an incident occurred and who is at fault should the need arise," said Alec James, Halfords in-car technology manager.

“They represent great value for money, capture high-quality digital footage - which is essential for insurers - and offer a range of useful additional features to suit drivers’ needs.”

Halfords Nextbase camera features

Ensuring they are able to meet the needs of all manner of consumners, the retailer has revealed that there will be three cameras in Halfords Nextbase dash-cam range.

The Nextbase 202 Lite is the simplest option. With a 1.3-megapixel CMOS sensor, a 120-degree wide angle camera and built in microphone, it films AVI video while attached to the vehicle as well as 10 minutes of back-up footage when detached. It has a 6.85cm display with a 1280 x 720 pixel screen and supports up to 32GB SD card.

Next in the line is the the Nextbase 302G Deluxe, a device which plays host to the same array of features as the 202 Lite, with infra-red night vision thrown into the mix. Further additions include GPS logging to track location and a 3-Axis G-sensor to record impact direction and acceleration.

The priciest option, the Nextbase 402G Professional, has even more additional features, videoing much-clearer footage in MOV format. It has a 1920 x 1080 pixel screen and a HD light-sensitive chip with WDR (wide dynamic range) technology. It supports a 32GB Micro SD.

Halfords Nextbase prices and availability

The three Nextbase cameras hit Halfords stores today and range in price from £69.99 for the Nextbase 202 Lite to £99.99 for the Nextbase 302G Deluxe and £149.99 for the Nextbase 402G Professional.

Is that English? Seriously?

Does it need charging every night or can I power it from my 12volt car socket?
Does it also start recording as soon as I start driving or do I need to press record every time I'm on the move?

Do NOT BUY this ! I bought the 101 to try out. The battery (if there is one) is useless. Every time you get in the car the battery is flat, you have to reset the date/time. I used it one morning on the way to work. Battery was flat when I came out of work and so it was useless

It only seems to charge when the ignition is on and engine running. So as long as you are happy running your car 24/7 it will be fine... See my post

The manual explains that it should be plugged in to the cigarette port while in use. It will also only record when it is plugged in.

There are other types of dash cam that are meant to be charged up before use if you need your cigarette port for a satnav (for example). This is not one of them.

Yes but the battery has to work long enough to finalize videos when the ignition is turned off. Lots of reviews saying that after a few months of use the battery degrades so badly that videos are not finalized at the end of a journey because once the ignition is switched off the cam dies immediately whereas the battery should keep it on for a few seconds while the video is finalized. Otherwise you are left with a corrupt file.

Therefore this camera is useless for major incidents e.g. a heavy collision where the car cuts out. You may well rely on the cam for exactly that type of incident only to find the last video is corrupted.

Not so much a review as an advertisment.
