Nexar turns your phone into a smart dashcam. Stay alert of road hazards and protected from fraud -- for free!

Just place your phone in a car mount with a clear view of the road ahead, and start driving. Nexar automatically starts recording and will:
* Auto-record dangerous events and collisions
* Upload these recordings to the cloud for you
* Alert you of hazards ahead in real-time
* Generate free collision reports

With Nexar, you also get:
* Unlimited cloud storage for recordings of dangerous events
* Access to all your events from any device
24/7 support -- anytime, anywhere

Nexar Scans the Road
Using machine learning and computer vision, Nexar constantly scans the road and detects when objects ahead become dangerous -- like when the car ahead suddenly stops.

Nexar Automatically Detects & Records
When Nexar detects dangerous events, it automatically records and stores them on the unlimited Nexar cloud for you.

Nexar Protects You from Fraud
In case of a collision, Nexar uses your phone’s sensors to collect data on the crash and analyze it. Then, Nexar generates a high fidelity collision reconstruction report which includes collision dynamics, diagrams, maps, and more. You can send this to your insurance agent as proof, and prevent fraudulent claims against you.

A Seamless Experience
Nexar automatically detects when you start driving. Just get behind the wheel, place your phone in a car mount on the dashboard or windshield (with a clear view of the road ahead!), and drive. Nexar does the rest!

Access Videos from Any Device
Nexar stores all of your dangerous events in your very own private account on the Nexar cloud, which you can access from dashboard.getnexar.com on any device. The dashboard gives you stats on how frequently you drive, where you drive, at what speed, and more.

Smart Settings for User Control
Nexar lets users control how much storage and data the app uses. Just head to Nexar under your iPhone’s settings.

More Nexar Features:

* Internal recording - Rideshare driver? Record inside your vehicle to deter drunk or aggressive passengers
* Keep your attention on the road ahead with Nexar voice commands
* Share your videos on social media


“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 own 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 getnexar.com.

“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. Otherwise, you’ll need to keep Nexar in the foreground to record your rides.

So impressed

bear heart darkriver

I'm pretty demanding when it comes to apps and this one is the best of its kind and the most intuitive that I have tried. Im sorry some folks haven't found it compatible with their needs but for me its been great. It is totally capable of running in the background (at least during calls when I am seeing just the phone app screen). Obviously my iPhone is the recording devise but the software is optimizing its capabilities and the video quality produced is extremely clear and license plates easily readable on play. A k even from nighttime recordings.
LASTLY AND MOST IMPORTANTLY the support has been awesome: always getting a response with relevant and credible information within a couple of hours...and generally less...even within minutes. As membership grows I hope they will scale appropriately to maintain the standard of service they are currently providing. Also, I will have no problem paying for added features in the future as I'm sure their business model will need eventually to remain viable (even if they begin getting ad revenue and the premium is to be ad free).

Hi I just bought this Xplore cam., as usual every product has positive and negative sides before buying this item its better to check reviews and ratings first so you dont waste your money and regrets on buying it, so here is the good ones., like they said HD 1080p, 155 degrea wide angle, good for accident and it provide maps on your trips and report, on sensing hard breaks for sure via gps and data and lot more features that is realy usefull your can check the product description.. and for the bad ones is i get frustrated when i was setting up they never metion how to connect the ios device on their manual and you need to contact them; lack of settings; you can’t review to your computer or monitor; cuz no settings for it i have a macbook so i don’t really know if you can review it on windows; No physical control; it keeps on recording even if you don’t need it like i said lack of settings; it burns out your Data plan; it only records on foreground not on background so if your driving for uber or lyft it stop recording its actually useless i would suggest using you phone as a dash cam; no night vision and there is something more for sure so its better to check the product review before buying it.

Developer Response

Hi, thanks for taking the time to give us this valuable feedback. We’re glad you like the camera’s specs and features!

You’re right -- the manual that comes with the camera does not mention that you need to turn on WiFi support in the app settings. We’re sorry for any frustration this caused. The good news is that we do send emails to our users instructing them about this, and as you mentioned, we have 24/7 support to help users set up the app & camera.

Regarding viewing your rides -- you can always view all your rides from www.getnexar.com/dashboard on any device.

Regarding data -- Nexar only uses data when a ‘dangerous event’ occurs that needs to be immediately uploaded to the cloud. The rest of your ride videos will wait to be upload only over WiFi connection.

Also, we’re excited to announce that our next version will include new settings for improved control over data uploading and device storage use.

Thanks again for your feedback!



Nexar is a very nice "dashboard" app for my iPhone 7. I love the app and the features. My only wish is that there were on screen features (like on screen time & date, location information like latitude & longitude & if possible, my speed), the kind of features found on many dashcams. I see there are proximity warnings from the photos posed here but I've never received one, I guess that's a good thing?

One of my favorite features is you can store incidents "in the cloud" (and I'm not referring to Apple's iCloud). I use the app EVERY TIME & ANY TIME I'm driving! I wish when I stored an incident in the cloud there was an indicator that it was in the cloud and NOT stored on my phone. I lose track of what's in the cloud and what isn't so I end up keeping no more then three incidents at any time, I'm very anal about my available storage.

I would like to get a dashcam in the future, I just can't afford one right now, so this will do until that time.
