I’ve wanted a dash cam for a while now. Both for the insurance aspect of owning one plus the potential for capturing insane or awesome stuff while out and about. Nextbase recently hit us up to offer a few units to test, and I jumped at the chance. Especially since Nextbase touts its flagship model as being good for off-road or overland vehicles. Why is that? Because the 4K-capable camera features image stabilization and is therefore supposed to be good at grabbing video when you’re out on the trails.
Does it actually work? I bolted one into my Montero and set off on my local run to find out.
[Disclaimer: Nextbase sent us a box of dashcams free of charge. I’m also going to put one in the Jag to test out a lower-spec model in the near future.]
