“Why do I have to sign up using Facebook or my phone number?”
We use Facebook or your phone number as your unique login key. That way, you can gain access to all your recordings on your private Nexar cloud account.
“How do I set up Nexar in my car?”
To work properly, you’ll need a phone mount and an in-vehicle charger. Nexar must be fixed in place for accurate sensor readings, and an in-vehicle charger will make sure Nexar is always recording. You can also connect Nexar to any Nexar-ready dashcam. Learn more at shop.getnexar.com.
“Will using Nexar drain my battery and the storage on my phone?”
Any app that uses GPS can deplete your phone battery faster, and Nexar is no different. That’s why we recommend that you keep your phone charged while using Nexar - a charged phone is a happy phone!
Because Nexar only use your cellular data to upload critical event, the app uses a small amount of your data.
“Can I record with Nexar in the background while using other apps?”
Unfortunately, due to an iOS security limitation, this is not possible, though there is a workaround. If you connect Nexar to a Nexar-ready camera, like those sold on our shop at shop.getnexar.com, you can use other apps while Nexar records in the background.

Ratings and Reviews
Love the interaction between cam & phone
I had previously occasionally used the Nexar app before I got the camera, using the iPhone’s camera. But the dash mount didn’t hold it high enough to see over the dash. The camera is permanently mounted and always available with what looks like a 150 degree horizontal view. When I turn on the ignition the camera gets power and the image automatically switches from the phone’s camera to Nexar within 30 seconds. The Nexar app is always open on my phone and uses the phone’s accelerometer to note accidents and sharp braking.
I initially thought that the Nexar cam was primarily to protect me from other drivers but now, concerned that it’s recording any stupid moves of mine, it serves to ensure that I am driving responsibly.
Eye on the sky
I’m truly happy with the Nexar dashcam and its seamless use from connecting to disconnecting automatically, also with the clarity and quick response to motion sensors through the phone during an event. I feel more comfortable when driving and knowing the eye in the sky has my back. I’ve had 2 people reverse into my car at a red light as odd as that sounds it happen within a month of each other. The other drivers could’ve easily said I hit them and it would’ve been my fault. Thankfully they were honest people. This makes sure I don’t run into the dishonest people, you know they’re out there lurking or cut you off and slamming on the breaks. Don’t hesitate and get one now before you have to pay full price.
Works great for me.
I’ve been running it for about two weeks. I don’t seem to have the same issues as other have. I’m running an iPhone X in a vent mount charger. I participated in a offer that refunds the cost after 3, 5+ mike drives. I have recommended it to several friends. The report generator will definitely save your story if you get in an accident. Where I’m at the scammers are running brake check scams on the freeway and backing scams in parking lots. I am not
Looking for some features others are, I hop in the car, put the phone in the holder and run the app, I also run Waze in the background with no problem. My only issue is I have to manually connect to it with WiFi. I’m sure it’s a phone setting, I just haven’t researched it yet.
