Nextbaseâ€™s latest dash cam, the 622GW is the complete package, offering fantastically detailed day and night 4K UHD video, Alexa support, as well as Emergency SOS in case of, well, emergency. Add support for Nextbaseâ€™s rear, interior, and interior telescopic camera modules, and guess what? You have the best dash cam in existence. At $400, itâ€™s also the priciest, but the cream of the crop generally is.

Design and features
The 622GW is a smooth, pewter-and-black looker. Itâ€™s about 3.5 inches wide, and 2 inches deep, but a bit heavier than the average dash cam. That translates to a feel of quality that so many dash cams lack. The outstanding physical feature is the 1-inch extruded lens body. It no doubt contributes to the 140-degree field of view, 4K UHD (3840×2160), 30fps capture system’s fantastic results. The polarizing filter likely doesnâ€™t hurt either.
