Dash cams have gotten a lot smarter over the years. The latest models combine with your phone to help you keep an eye on your vehicle. Take the Nextbase iQ connected dash cam for instance: it is a 4G connected AI dash cam with proximity sensing Spatial Awareness and G-Force sensors to scan the area around your vehicle and warn you to any threats in real-time.
With the iQ app, you can see what’s going on around your vehicle. Real-time event notifications are sent to your phone. You have the option to set speed and location limits to get an alert when your car goes outside of them. iQ is capable of detecting the status of your vehicle (driving/parking).
