The road can be bumpy sometimes, but we've got you covered. Use our extensive troubleshooting guides if you encounter any issues with your NEXC2 dash cam.

 

Connectivity Issues

I can't onboard or connect my NEXC2 to the Nexar app   

 Important reminder!

The Nexar app connects to the dash cam through Bluetooth and WIFI. Please make sure there are no other WIFI networks in the area, and that VPNs, hotspots, and antivirus apps are disabled to avoid having issues during the app and dash cam setup.

To have a seamless, onboarding experience with your Nexar NEXC2 dash cam, check that the following is true:

  • You are using an updated version of the Nexar app
  • The phone's WIFI, Bluetooth, Location, and cellular data are enabled
  • All the required Nexar app permissions are set up correctly
  • Use all Nexar-provided accessories that came with your NEXC2
  • Disable any WIFI interfering functionalities such as Carplay, Android Auto, VPN apps, antivirus apps, or other security apps
  • If you have an Android phone, make sure that the Nexar app is not installed in a work profile, workspace, or work-restricted phone
  • Make sure there are no other Nexar dash cams nearby that are powered on

If you are still experiencing issues pairing or connecting your phone to your Nexar NEXC2 dash cam, proceed with the steps below:

  1. Perform a hard reset on the camera by tapping the Power button 9 times quickly, followed by one more fast tap for confirmation.

  2. Turn on your phone's Bluetooth, WIFI, and Location settings. The blue light on the dash cam should turn solid.
  3. If you are using an Android phone, ensure that the Location permission is set to Always
  4. Launch the Nexar app and try again

 Important Reminder

Location permission is not required on Android OS 13 to record drives in the app. Please note that disabling this permission prevents the app from creating map routes for your Drives, Clips, and 1-Click Reports. If you want routing data saved alongside your drive videos, simply set the Nexar app's Location Permission to 'Always.'

If the issue persists, please contact our support team.

My phone disconnects from the dash cam while driving

 Important reminder!

The Nexar app connects to the dash cam through Bluetooth and WIFI. Please make sure there are no other WIFI networks in the area, and that VPNs, hotspots, and antivirus apps are disabled to avoid having issues during the app and dash cam setup.

Disconnections that happen in the middle of a drive can often be due to WIFI interferences or power-related issues.

Check the following to ensure there is uninterrupted connection between the app and dash cam: 

  • The phone's WIFI, Bluetooth, Location, and cellular data are enabled
  • Ensure that the phone is not connected to other WIFI networks
  • Disable any WIFI interfering functionalities such as Carplay, Android Auto, VPN apps, antivirus apps, or other security apps
  • Verify that there are no physical damages on the dash cam's power port or its accessories (cable, mount, and charger)
  • Check that the power supply to the car's power port is not being cut off

If the issue persists, please contact our support team.

I need the password for the NEXC2 WIFI network

 Important reminder

Pairing your Android phone does not need a password to pair to your Nexar app and entering one will cause issues.

If you are using an Android phone and you entered a password on the NEXC2 WIFI network, do the following:

  1. Tap on the NEXC2 WIFI, then "Forget" the network
  2. Restart your phone
  3. Power off and power on the dash cam
  4. Launch the Nexar app and follow the on-screen instructions to connect the NEXC2 dash cam

If you are using an iOS phone, simply enter "12345678" after selecting "DIRECT-Nexar(5G)" or "Nexar(5G)" network on the list of available networks.

If the issue persists, please contact our support team.

Drive Recording Issues

My NEXC2 is not recording my drives

 Important Reminder

NEXC2 always records to its Internal Memory as soon as it's powered on. If connected to the Nexar app while driving, it will also back up videos to your phone's memory.

To ensure that your drives are automatically saved on the Nexar app, we recommend the following:

  • There should be enough available phone storage to record your drive recordings

  • Verify that there are no physical damages on the dash cam's power port or its accessories (cable, mount, and charger)
  • Check that the power supply to the car's power port is not being cut off
  • Consider setting up automatic streaming for a more seamless driving experience

If your recent drives were not saved to the app, don't worry. You can still recover them from the dash cam's Internal Memory by doing the following:

  1. Download the Nexar Memory Card Reader app here on your Windows Computer
    • The app is only available for Windows, but will be available for Mac soon!
  2. Plug the dash cam into your computer or into an external power source
  3. Connect your computer to the dash cam’s WiFi network. Look for the network DIRECT-XXXXXX and enter password 12345678 (unclick 'Remember this network')
  4. Wait until your dash cam’s flashing light is steady
  5.  Double-click your dash cam’s power button
  6. Click “Connect” on the Nexar Card Reader app on your computer 
If the issue persists, please contact our support team.
I'm experiencing video quality issues

A few things can cause problems with the video quality, which can range from the phone overheating, using security apps like VPNs or antivirus, or other apps with Nexar, to obstructions or physical damage on the camera's lens.

If you are experiencing issues with video quality like distortions, lagging, pixelation, and other sorts of problems related to video quality, consider the following suggestions:

  • Ensure there are no obstructions on the lens and remove any protective film
  • Adjust the main unit's lens by moving it up or down to achieve a better angle
  • Inspect the dash cam's lens for any signs of physical damage
  • Consider mounting your phone on or near the air conditioner's vent and keeping it plugged to the charger to minimize the chances of the phone overheating 
  • Close any unused apps while driving with Nexar

By following these steps, you can troubleshoot and potentially resolve any issues with the video quality on the app.
