What does Manual Recording mean?

BlackboxMyCar Updated by BlackboxMyCar

Manual recording is a feature of BlackVue dash cams (with built-in Proximity sensor) that creates a separate Event recording file (starting 5 seconds before it was triggered) when the sensor is touched, or a finger is waved within 20mm of the sensor. The manual recording file thumbnails are marked as "M".

Manual recording can't be triggered if the dash cam is already recording another event at that moment.

The length of manual recording file is 1 minute and can be 1, 2 or 3 minutes depending on the file length that you have set in dash cam/firmware settings. -> Recording settings -> Event and Parking mode recording duration.
