Nexar

All the proof you need

From road closures, stop-and-go traffic, reckless drivers, bad weather, to back seat drivers - Nexar knows that road safety and vehicle security isn’t easy to capture without video evidence. With driver safety as the primary focus, Nexar’s dash cams are available for drivers who want an easy and out of the box experience - providing live streaming footage as well as daytime and nighttime navigation mode. 

Nexar's dash cams are paired with its app, providing a turn by turn experience that is augmented by Nexar's crowd-source images of the road, so that drivers can experience the road ahead. This is powered by Mapbox Navigation SDK that replaces the need to switch between apps on your phone. Drivers can even sync their insurance information into the app and incident footage will be sent to the insurance company to review it.


We use Mapbox to augment turn-by-turn navigation on Nexar, so we can provide a new and innovative, and more visually engaging experience of the road ahead, leveraging Nexar's crowd-sourced vision. We chose Mapbox since it allows very easy customization of the map, so that we can create beautiful maps that align with our brand.

To complement the robust hardware a streamlined software that provides traffic guidance and proactive rerouting, the Navigation SDK lets Nexar developers deliver a seamless navigation interface with real time map data - giving drivers the peace of mind for their entire journey 

In addition to being a driver solution, municipalities and city planners can benefit from Nexar’s new offering of City Stream to take annonymized images from the dash cam, such as identifying traffic signs and cones in construction zones. With Mapbox map data a new layer can be created with what is captured from the dash cam, for example, giving cities data that can help prevent accidents by adding more traffic signs. All run on Mapbox maps and navigation.
