Getting Interior Facing Camera Videos

The interior facing camera is recorded automatically to the dash cam's internal memory. Learn how you can watch and save these videos to the Nexar app.

Nexar’s interior facing camera connects to your Nexar dash cam and allows you to record the inside of your vehicle in 720p quality. The interior facing camera does not have its own SD card, so it uses the dash cam’s SD card while being connected to it.

Videos which are saved on the internal memory and clips created using the Nexar app with the interior facing camera will be saved with audio from inside the vehicle.

Video is no longer in your dash cam

If you’re receiving this message when attempting to create a clip from your interior camera, it is possible that it was already overwritten by the new videos you have created. Nonetheless, you can still perform playback of the exterior footage that is associated with it.

SD Card capacity

Exterior and Interior Camera videos are equally stored inside the dash cam’s internal memory (click here to find out how to export your drives from it). Below are the estimated number of hours that you can save according to the dash cam’s memory size:

                SD size                     Hours of recording    
32 GB 2.5
64 GB 5
128 GB 10
256 GB 20


Once the limit has been reached, it will begin to ‘
loop record’ once you start a new recording (a new drive). Hence, it is highly advisable to create a clip immediately in case you need the footage from either the exterior or interior camera.
