How to Disable Audio Recording

All Thinkware Dash Cams come equipped with a built-in microphone for recording audio in the cabin.

There are currently 12 States with these Dash Cam Regulations including; California, Florida, and Washington. Due to these regulations, many Dash Cam users prefer to disable the audio recording to prevent possible ramifications.

Please refer to the following steps to disable Audio Recording on your device:

    I assume any of these methods will only disable audio recording temporarily and that each time the vehicle is started it will need to be pressed again?
    Is there a way to permanently disable the audio so as not to have to go through this each time?

      Hi Nic, when you disable the audio recording it will stay disabled until your format the micro SD card or update the firmware. You do not have to disable the audio recording every time the dash cam is powered on.

      On FA200 once you disable voice recording , it will stay disabled until you do update the firmware or format the SD Card

    The FA 200 is announcing speed camera for red light camera and vice versa with an addition of speed limit. It also announces the same cameras on the adjacent streets
