Having Trouble Logging in to the App?

Check our help guides below in case you encounter issues logging in to Nexar Classic.

What to Do if I Didn’t Receive the SMS Verification Code?

You should get the SMS verification code not long after you requested it, but if you did not receive one, please check the following:

1. Ensure that your country code is entered before the phone number

2. Make sure you are using a phone number that is registered in a supported country and is currently located in a supported country. You can check out the list of supported countries here:

3. Make sure you’re in a location with good cellular service as the verification code will be sent via SMS message.

4. If you have VPN, security, or antivirus software enabled on your phone, it may interfere with the message containing your SMS Verification Code. Make sure to disable them while we send you the text message.

5. Make sure your cellular service provider is not blocking short codes from Nexar. If they are, please ask them to unblock it for you. This will ensure you will get SMS Verification Codes from Nexar whenever you need to log in to the app.

You can only do a maximum of 5 requests within a 30-minute period before the system locks you out for 24 hours. If you haven't received the code after a couple of attempts, please send an email to our support team at for assistance.

What if I Received the Verification Code but It’s Saying It’s Not Valid?

If the verification code you received is not working even if you're sure you're entering it correctly in the app, please do the following:

1. Check the verification code you entered and make sure all the digits are correct.

2. Request a new verification code from the app.

3. Try logging in again using the new code.

4. Note that the SMS Verification Code expires 5 minutes after it is requested. It’s best to enter the code as soon as it is received.

If the issue persists, please reach out to our support team for further assistance.

How to Navigate Nexar Classic?

Home Screen

About Home Screen

The Home screen is the main page of Nexar Classic. It is the first screen you will see after logging into the app. It includes the map where you can see where your and your vehicle's location and re-center to where it is. The status bar indicates whether your dash cam is recording or parked, and the tabs menu allows you to navigate between the home screen (Drive tab), settings (More), and your videos feed (Videos).

The Map

When entering Nexar Classic, the map will display the last known location of your dash cam. In cases where the user owns more than one dash cam, they will all be shown on the map with their location. The map will zoom in to the location of the selected dash cam or any other location double-tapped on the map and re-center itself by clicking the floating location icon at the top right corner of the map. While driving, the map view will follow the selected dash cam’s route, centered in the middle of the screen.

Last Saved Parking Spot

If you are using an iOS device, you can view the last location where the app was connected to your dash cam. In other words, your last saved parking spot. A single tap on your dash cam’s location indicator opens the Last seen location tooltip, a second tap on the tooltip opens a video of your last saved parking.

Stream Button

The Stream button will be shown only when you are connected to the dash cam, over WiFi and Bluetooth, so make sure they are enabled.

Tapping the Stream button allows viewing your dash cam streaming during a drive. Note that the dash cam is still recording even if you don’t tap the Stream button.

The Stream button is for the local streaming feature on your phone while you're driving.

Dash Cam Status Bar

The status bar indicates the dash cam model and the connectivity state.

Nexar Pro, Beam, NEXC1, NEXC2, and NEXS1's Dash Cam Statuses

  • Detected - This means Nexar Classic is connected to the dash cam over Bluetooth. The Stream button will be enabled, allowing you to stream directly from the dash cam during a drive.

  • Not detected - This status means Nexar Classic is not connected to the dash cam's Bluetooth. When the status is Not detected, the Stream button will be disabled.

Videos Tab

The Videos tab is your dash cam’s video library. Full drives, Clips, and incidents captured automatically by the dash cam will be displayed in one feed.

About the Videos Tab

Your drives and clips will be saved and displayed on the Videos tab. The Timeline will be organized in chronological order, showing your latest drive at the top, including clips labeled by their type. By entering a card, you can easily play, save and share important moments with your loved ones.

Clips and Drive Cards

Drives are the videos of your entire trip, whereas Clips are short videos that have been either automatically created or that you have manually created. Manual clips will be labeled as Clip in your timeline, while incidents your dash cam detected automatically are labeled by the incident type: Hard brake, Parking, Collision, etc.

Clips that are manually created from a drive will be associated with the relevant drive card with a connector. These are backed up on your Cloud account permanently unless you choose to delete them manually.

Select Button for Deleting Videos in Bulk

We understand that sometimes you don’t need all the drives that appear in your Timeline, so we added a button that will delete multiple videos at once.

Here are the simple steps on how to delete your Drives and Clips:

1. Connect your phone to the internet via Cellular data or WiFi.

2. Tap Select from the upper right corner in the Videos tab and select the videos you want to delete.

3. You can also select by date or by simply tapping Select all on the upper left corner.

4. Next, tap Delete.

Deleting videos from Nexar Classic will also delete them from the Nexar Cloud permanently and can never be retrieved, so be careful when deleting clips.

Videos saved to your phone are normally deleted automatically by Nexar Classic’s loop recording mechanism. If you wish to keep a recording of your drive in the Nexar Cloud, then we recommend not manually deleting the clip on the app.
