Settings screen

The Settings screen in the Nexar app lets you make changes on how your app and dash cam behaves, records, and stores videos. It also gives you the flexibility to choose which features or settings should be used.

About Settings

We want you to be able to configure the settings on your Nexar app seamlessly. You can do this by tapping on the More tab. Here you can configure your Nexar app profile, account, and dash cam settings. 


Profile Settings

Here, you can edit your personal account information. Additionally, you will be able to review your monthly statistics - kilometers driven, hours driven and number of drives and clips.

In case of a collision, the Nexar app can help provide video and sensor evidence to your insurance company, in one click.


Account Settings

Here, you can manage your account and phone related issues. 

Phone storage - Nexar uses your preferred storage space to save the clips you create from your drives, and then uploads them to the Nexar Cloud. When the allocated space is used up, old drives are being deleted, making space for new ones.


Here, you can see the space reserved for Nexar videos, and the hours available for those videos. You can also see the phone/cloud storage used and available, and manage the amount of storage to be used,

Siri Shortcuts - iOS users can pre-set a list of Siri shortcuts to be used on the Nexar app, each triggering a different action. Siri commands offered by the Nexar app are:

  • Start a drive, End a drive, Send a video message (not on Nexar One)
  • Create a Nexar clip, Where did I park (all models)
  • I’m being pulled over (Only Nexar One model) - this will send an SMS to all your defined emergency contacts, with a link to your drive stream.


Emergency contacts - this option is available only on the Nexar One model. In case of a collision, you can select contacts you wish to be notified of,  as emergency contact. They will receive an SMS alert with a live stream from your camera, as well as your car’s location, and a way to contact you. You can always cancel the alert before it is sent out.

Add an emergency contact by clicking on the “+ Add a contact” icon and follow the steps. .Remove an emergency contact by clicking on the trash icon next to the contact’s name.
