Recent news reported that a Managing Director of a law firm was fined $2,500 for scratching a man's car with his key at a condominium's basement car park.
The victim's car was equipped with a dashcam and the footage shows that the culprit approached his car in the front and then walking away from the camera's view and to the side of the car. As the dashcam's voice recording is switched ON, three distinct sound similar to key scratching a car door can be heard. The victim reported the incident to the police by submitting the video (with sound) as a proof of the culprit's action.
If the dashcam's voice recording is not available (or switched off), this incident may ends differently.

How to manage the voice recording in your BlackVue?
Please take note that all our BlackVue dashcams come with voice recording switched ON as default. User can switch OFF the voice recording instantly by pressing the switch or touch the proximity sensor (model dependant) located on the side of the BlackVue dashcam.
Since the default setting for Voice Recording is ON, when the power to the dashcam is reset, the voice recording will be switched back to ON (even though you had switched OFF by using the button). To set the Voice Recording to default OFF, please access the setting wirelessly by using BlackVue App (for dashcam which supports WiFi) or remove the memory card and perform the setting by BlackVue Viewer for PC.
By any chance that if you had recorded the video but you would like to remove the recorded voice, you could use our BlackVue Viewer software to remove it. You also have the option to trim the video before export.
