What are Drives?
When using the Nexar app, you’ll notice two categories - “Drives” and “Clips.” Drives are exactly as they sound - they are recent recordings of your full drives. At the end of every drive, you’ll see a screen that summarizes the drive - it will include a video, a map of the drive, and the start and stop times of the drive. The Drives are automatically deleted based on available free space on your phone.
What are Clips?
Clips are snippets of a driving footage that is saved to your phone and your Nexar Cloud. These clips are automatically created when the app detects dangerous events or collisions on the road.
See something really cool during your drive that you’d like to keep but it wasn't automatically detected and saved?
You can either create a manual clip by tapping on the app’s screen while the drive is being recorded or you can create a manual clip after you’ve completed your drive.
How do I upload a Clip to the Nexar Cloud?
Whenever a Clip is created, it is immediately uploaded to your Nexar Cloud in full HD quality over 4G, through the use of cellular data.
How can I delete my Clips?
Manually deleting Clips from the app also permanently deletes Clips from your Nexar Cloud account. On the other hand, Clips that were deleted through loop recording will only be deleted from the app.
- In the Nexar app, go to Activity > Clips
- Tap the clip you want to delete
- Tap the Trash bin icon in the upper right corner of the screen
- Tap the Delete button
How can I upload a Drive to the Nexar Cloud?
Full drives are uploaded to the Nexar Cloud as time-lapsed videos, on a best effort basis, when your phone is connected to a WiFi network.
Do I need to delete Drives?
You don't have to. In order to use as little of your available phone storage as possible, we automatically delete drives depending on how much free space you have on your phone. In any event, you can go to the app’s Settings to select how much free space Nexar will use on your phone.
How can I delete my Drives?
- In the Nexar app, go to Activity > Drive
- Tap the Trash bin icon on the drive you want to delete
Note that by manually deleting your drives from the app, it permanently deletes it from your Nexar Cloud account as well. If you wish to keep a record of your drive in the Nexar Cloud, we recommend just letting the app loop record the old drives with new ones.
If I delete the app, what will happen to the recorded drives in the app?
When deleting the Nexar app, all videos in the app will be deleted. Videos that have already been uploaded to the Cloud are still accessible to you when logging into your Nexar Cloud account.
