Nextbase iQ: The AI-Powered Dash Cam Redefining Vehicle Surveillance

With 4G Connectivity and AI Features, the Nextbase iQ Dash Cam Offers Smart Surveillance for Vehicles

Furthermore, the iQ includes an Emergency SOS feature that can notify local emergency services in the event of a heavy impact if the driver doesn’t respond to prompts from the dash cam.

The iQ’s connected features are accessible through two subscription tiers: Protect and Protect Plus, priced at $9.99 / £6.99 and $19.99 / £9.99 per month, respectively. However, the iQ functions as a traditional, unconnected dash cam even without a subscription.

Nextbase plans to enhance the iQ’s capabilities with future over-the-air updates, introducing features like Guardian Mode, which keeps vehicle owners informed about their car’s location when driven by others, and Push-to-talk, enabling communication between the app and the driver or potential intruders through the iQ’s 4G connection, speaker, and microphone.

Additionally, the company intends to introduce Roadwatch AI, utilizing the dash cam’s computer vision chipset to track the speed and trajectory of nearby vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists, and scooters. This feature will enhance video recordings with speed data and offer real-time warnings to the driver.

The Nextbase iQ may not be budget-friendly, but its feature-packed offering promises exciting possibilities once installed and used in real-world scenarios.
