A nearly perfect melding of dash cam and phone for an exceptionally low price.
The Nexar Beam isn’t the first dash cam to upload video to the cloud—that honor goes to the Owlcam—but it’s nearly as elegant as the Owl, and far more affordable at $90 from Amazon. Free unlimited cloud uploads, GPS, and traffic and accident warnings are the highlight, but both day and night captures are excellent as well.
Note that without the phone, GPS and other goodies disappear (video is still captured). In a phone-centric world, that’s not a huge concern for most users.
