Where and how do I mount the camera?  

Behind and to the right of your rearview mirror works best. But before you stick the camera, check in the Nexar App that you have a full, clear view of the road.

Wherever you choose to stick the camera, make sure not to install it in a place that will interfere with the driver’s visibility or safety. Also, do not install the camera on or near where airbags may be present or go off. If you are uncertain of where your vehicle’s airbags are located, contact your vehicle’s manufacturer. Finally, do not install the camera on sun control film (i.e. window tint) to prevent any damage.

Inserting the micro SD card

Hold the camera with the lens facing downwards, and insert micro SD card with metal pins facing upwards into the micro SD slot on the camera until you hear a click

Please make sure not to use SD cards that have been previously used with other Nexar dash cams as it will cause permanent damage. Only use new SD cards with your Nexc1. 


Mounting the adjustable suction docking mount

Thoroughly clean and dry the area of the windshield where the unit will be mounted, see page 3 Safety for suggestions. Second, firmly apply the suction mount to the windshield and press on the lever to secure suction grip.

Note: Make sure the lever is released before applying to the windshield, for best results.
