They are so far behind the curve that it makes no sense that they would continue with it. Technology does not wait for anyone.
Lets face it, it is just a cut down version of their camera. I don't believe the EU testing excuse. My guess is that the 512GW will need a firmware update and this is where the issues are.

it's a similar process but is not that simple

I don't believe the EU testing excuse..
that would certainly be a part of the process and also the last part of the process

My guess is that the 512GW will need a firmware update and this is where the issues are.
that's not difficult, functionality is in the SDK already

So the Autumn 2017 release date was extremely optimistic. They must have known that even before the 512GW was released.
So is available in the US now?
Why is there no official comment from NextBase?

I think I should emphasise again that I am very pleased with my 512GW. It's an excellent product. So I'm not just a moaner.
Maybe if they had said that the rear camera is a 'possible' future development, then the expectation would not be there. It would just be seen as a bonus when released.

Well I was one of the ones waiting patiently for the arrival of rear cam, but now I decided to give and go elsewhere. Which is a shame as the dual cam package seems highly rated..
So instead I've bought a new DOD LS475W+ cam for the front and running my old Yi_Ultra Dash Cam at the back.
Maybe when these two pack up and stop working the rear nextbase cam will be available at Halfords......

How long is a piece of string????
By the time this phantom rear cam comes out the main front cam wont be compatible with it !!!! then we'll be told we need to upgrade the front cam to the 512 GW"A" that's being manufactured and should be on the shop shelves in 2025 after "testing" :);):ROFLMAO:

To be honest I'm now fed up of waiting for it to be available.

And the lack of info or responses from nextbase are laughable now.

We have gone from having info given to now practically silence.

I don't blame Tiffany as she can't win either way but this saga of this camera is getting ridiculous.

I'm even thinking of not even bothering with it and thinking of another solution instead.
