I HAVE RECEIVED THIS PRODUCT FREE IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST, UNBIASED REVIEW!
The NextBase 322GW Dashcam is a serious bit of kit with some amazing features!
The first thing I have to mention is the mount, the mount is wired into your vehicle and so removing the dashcam to download footage is easy. It is a magnetic attachment very strong) between the mount and the dashcam and you can attach the mount either with the 3m pad or suction pad, both included.
For me the 3m pad is the best way, I have had countless dashcams, satnavs and phone holders fall off the screen when attached via suction. A change in temperature and plop, its off!
The 322GW has a touch screen and I like that feature, it means setting up the camera is easy and there are a whole host of settings on this dashcam.
Not only will it show date and time, but also your vehicles registration number and when connected to the My NextBase Player software, it shows a map with the segment of journey for that recording that can be set to 1, 2 or 3 minutes, grid reference, direction, speed (current, average and maximum) and the G Forces during that journey and that gives you an idea of acceleration, braking and cornering speeds.
I would say that as well as help you out in the event of an accident, if you are speeding, it will go against you but I think this could encourage people to improve their driving.
The Dashcam also connects via Bluetooth to your phone via the app, this has your vehicles Registration Number, colour and make and also your name, age, address and any medical info.
It holds this info for the SOS feature and you get a One Year free trial and what this does is that in the event of an accident, if you are unable to call for help it will alert the emergency services for you with the location and all the details you entered. You can override this via the touchscreen if you don’t need the SOS function to notify the emergency services.
After the free years trial it will cost £2.99 per month.
How’s that for peace of mind!

The only issue I encountered was down to the Cabin Camera module. Our car is a 2014 Ford Galaxy and placing the camera providing all round cabin view whilst providing good coverage for front camera whilst not obscuring view for driver and providing good coverage on the Cabin module due to rear view mirror.

The dashcam has been in use in the car for a few weeks now and it continues to perform well. The mount is secured using the 3M pad and it has stayed put and the magnetic attachment that secures the dashcam to the mount is solid.
Most of all the sense of security that you get from having a dashcam is what I love the best. I know that when my wife is out and about her journey is being recorded not only out of the windscreen but also inside the car and so if anything happens it will be captured.
Also knowing that the SOS feature is there ready to automatically call for help if a crash happened gives great peace of mind.
