We highly recommend using a Nextbase branded microSD card with our Dash Cams. These have been built and tested specifically for use with our Dash Cams. For the 622GW, we recommend using a 32GB U3 card. If you are connecting it to a Rear Cam Module, we advise using a 64GB U3 or 128GB U3 card for best results.


16GB U1 micro SD card: This will record up to two hours of footage before looping on a Nextbase Dash Cam. It is compatible with the 122 and 222 models. Note, this should not be used with a Rear Cam Module.


32GB U3 micro SD card: This will record up to four hours of footage before looping on a Nextbase Dash Cam, or up to two hours if using a Rear Cam Module. It is compatible with all Nextbase Dash Cams.


64GB U3 micro SD card: This will record up to eight hours of footage before looping on a Nextbase Dash Cam, or up to four hours if using a Rear Cam Module. It is compatible with all Nextbase Dash Cams.


128GB U3 micro SD card: This will record up to 16 hours of footage before looping on a Nextbase Dash Cam, or up to eight hours if using a Rear Cam Module. It is compatible with all Nextbase Dash Cams.

You can power your Dash Cam in one of two ways:


1. Using the 12/24Vdc Car Power Cable supplied in the box.

2. Having the Dash Cam hardwired to the fuse box using the Nextbase

 Hardwire Kit. This can be to a permanent-live or switched-live connection.
