Hello all, got a 412 Dashcam, can you tell me what the red box is that appears in the middle of the screen is, and is the dashcam still recording while its there. How to do I remove the red box.

Thanks for any replies, gep

Not familiar with the brand / camera, i would assume if it is something that come and go it might be a result of motion detect or G sensor being on and event recording.
the box should not feature in the footage.

If its the Nextbase 412GW, it sounds like the padlock when the file is being protected.

Does it look like this?

we used to get customers asking why there was always an icon on screen when they checked, turned out they were waking the screen up by pressing the emergency button
