Nexar One Reviews


Nexar has always been known for its unboxing experience. In the past, rave reviews like The Drive stated “There are no shouty pictures or text on the box, and the unboxing experience is uncannily Apple-like”. Nexar One takes this to a new level with users raving about the clean and aesthetically pleasing experience they have when getting their new camera.

Nexar One unboxing

Like all Nexar dash cams, Nexar One is super simple to install. The box comes equipped with your camera, relevant add-ons, long power cable, USB adapter, magnetic mount and an installation tool. As you unbox and put together your camera, the Nexar App walks you through a very brief installation guide to get you all set up. Check out this easy to follow video tutorial. Keep in mind if you select the hardwiring kit, it is recommended to have your cam professionally installed.

Hardware Review
Though Nexar is typically known for its software, the Nexar One hardware is undeniably impressive. Equipped with the Ambarella AI-capable chipset and powered by a Sony Starvis image sensor, Nexar One is by far Nexar’s most advanced camera. The Sony Starvis image sensor means that Nexar One can record super crisp videos at 4K resolution, and at a sensitivity well above that of the human eye in low light conditions, a step up from their already impressive 1080p quality on other models. With a unique industrial design, Nexar One is also modular, meaning you can choose the main unit and later decide to order the add-ons. The add-ons include a connectivity unit, which paired with an LTE subscription gives the camera remote streaming capabilities along with other connected features. The second add-on is the interior camera module that is perfect for rideshare drivers or even parents with young drivers. To check out the full specs of Nexar’s latest camera, take a look here.

Nexar is known to have its own proprietary software. The Nexar App paired with the Nexar One camera comes with some incredible features that are constantly upgraded. From the app you can control the recording quality of the exterior camera. You can select 1080p or 4K quality depending on your phone’s storage capabilities. The 4K option obviously provides state of the art video quality which you can see below.


Remote streaming is another innovative Nexar One feature. With the continuous power kit, you can truly see your car anywhere, anytime. Nexar One allows you to check in on your vehicle to stay connected and protected at all times.

One of the most important and most loved Nexar One features is parking mode. Often users will buy a dash camera for this feature alone. Nexar’s parking mode will detect impact to the vehicle and wake up to record an incident and save it as a clip. If your camera is equipped with LTE, you will also receive an alert directly to your phone at the moment of the accident.

A new Nexar One feature that users seem to be enjoying is speed detection. All of your videos will have a watermark that indicates how fast you are driving. This can be helpful in many instances, especially if you are pulled over by the police!

Another important reason people get dash cams is safety. Nexar One comes equipped with Emergency Alerts. Simply select your emergency contacts and if you are in an accident, the Nexar App will send an SMS to your emergency contacts. You are also able to view all of your videos instantly in the Nexar App and share them with police or friends and family.
