VERDICT ★★★☆☆ Could be the new leader in budget dash cams but the issues we had with our early example’s mount are cause for concern. After this review was published, Joo Vuu got in touch asking for feedback to help it improve the product.It also updated its quick start guide to make set-up easier to follow.THE TECHNOLOGY that has been safeguarding the reputations – and insurance policies – of good drivers in Russia for many years is now taking the UK by storm.Though our roads are becoming safer, there were 186,189 accidents in 2015, the most recent figure available.Both versions have three buttons, and it’s not obvious what any of them is for.The “M” button, we guessed correctly, is for “Menu”.However, important files can be locked and protected from deletion, either manually (by pressing a button on the device) or in most cases automatically if the device detects a sudden change in speed (because of an accident or emergency stop). Although the oldest video clips are deleted automatically to make way for new footage as the dash cam records, you may find that the protected (emergency recording) files build up over time and eventually fill the card, perhaps causing an error message to appear.For this reason, it’s best to format the memory card once every couple of weeks or so.
Bear in mind that police will get involved if someone has been injured in an accident; they have the power to seize footage, which may be used as evidence.There are two models: one with a battery and one that uses a capacitor.The battery suffers in the heat of your car interior on a hot day and in the freezing cold of winter, so we advise going with the capacitor.Ease of use ★★★★★ The Nextbase 112 starts recording as soon as you provide it with power (e.g.starting the engine), the menu is simple and easy to navigate via the screen, the record button is clear, as is the emergency record button. Functions ★★★☆☆ While there’s no GPS, which would record your speed and location, it does have a G-sensor (with sensitivity settings), a decent screen allowing you to replay footage instantly, a photo mode and a parking mode, which can detect bumps while the car is parked. Video/audio quality ★★★☆☆ The 112 records at 720p resolution, so not full HD, and the 120-degree viewing angle is average, but the quality is excellent for a budget camera and audio is captured clearly, too.
