TTAC Giveaway: Nextbase Dash Cam
Hello there! It's time for another TTAC product giveaway!
This time we're going to be working with Nextbase to give away a dash cam.
That's right. If you're interested in keeping a record of what happens on the road, for whatever reason, Nextbase will send you, should you be picked, a 522GW camera plus a Rear Window Cam and SD Card.
The 522GW has built-in Alexa and SOS response and records in 1440p HD. It also has a polarizing lens that reduces glare.
There's more! A rotating bezel helps reduce glare. There's also a 3-inch HD IPS touchscreen that makes using the menu super easy.
Not only does the cam record in 1440p HD at 30 fps, it also has a 6G glass lens that helps it capture details such as street signs and license plate numbers. An SD card is recommended with this model, and it will be included. This camera is only compatible with Nextbase SD cards.
The emergency SOS function does more than just alert authorities to your location in the event of a crash -- it can save medical info like blood type, allergies, and medical history to help facilitate effective treatment while saving time.
An intelligent parking mode senses when your vehicle is bumped and starts recording automatically. Wi-Fi and an app allow you to download footage to your smartphone or tablet, and Bluetooth can be used to share crash footage directly to your smartphone (if properly equipped) automatically. Finally, 10hz GPS aided by Google Maps helps make sure speed and location data are accurate.
Enter to win today! The contest closes Friday, August 5th, and we will announce the winner shortly after.

Hey Tim, what's the deal with old articles showing up after a current one? Read Tonn's article on the Passat, scrolled down and the next one was an article from June 8th. Same thing happened earlier - read the Tesla article, scrolled down and it was an article Murilee wrote from June 5th. Is it a browser issue? I'm signed in and all that. Thanks!

- Sgeffe Bronco looks with JLR “reliability!”What’s not to like?!
- FreedMike Back in the '70s, the one thing keeping consumers from buying more Datsuns was styling - these guys were bringing over some of the ugliest product imaginable. Remember the F10? As hard as I try to blot that rolling aberration from my memory, it comes back. So the name change to Nissan made sense, and happened right as they started bringing over good-looking product (like the Maxima that will be featured in this series). They made a pretty clean break.
- Flowerplough Liability - Autonomous vehicles must be programmed to make life-ending decisions, and who wants to risk that? Hit the moose or dive into the steep grassy ditch? Ram the sudden pile up that is occurring mere feet in front of the bumper or scan the oncoming lane and swing left? Ram the rogue machine that suddenly swung into my lane, head on, or hop up onto the sidewalk and maybe bump a pedestrian? With no driver involved, Ford/Volkswagen or GM or whomever will bear full responsibility and, in America, be ambulance-chaser sued into bankruptcy and extinction in well under a decade. Or maybe the yuge corporations will get special, good-faith, immunity laws, nation-wide? Yeah, that's the ticket.
- FreedMike It's not that consumers wouldn't want this tech in theory - I think they would. Honestly, the idea of a car that can take over the truly tedious driving stuff that drives me bonkers - like sitting in traffic - appeals to me. But there's no way I'd put my property and my life in the hands of tech that's clearly not ready for prime time, and neither would the majority of other drivers. If they want this tech to sell, they need to get it right.
- TitaniumZ Of course they are starting to "sour" on the idea. That's what happens when cars start to drive better than people. Humanpilots mostly suck and make bad decisions.
