Digital Camera World Verdict

The Nextbase 622GW is a fully-fledged 4K dash cam with powerful features like image stabilisation, Alexa, What3Words and SOS emergency response. Video quality is superb and the camera is easy to set up thanks to a smart magnetic windscreen mount with integrated GPS. Only the clunky smartphone app lets it down, but using this isn’t compulsory.
