This is on my driver side visor that I got out of an explorer. What exactly is it and does it do? I'm guessing there are batterieries in it? There were no extra wires coming out of the visor..

It is a digital voice recorder.

I think Ford called it TravelNote, I would think it would have a vehicle power wire, but could be a flat battery in there.

These are instruction I found in a search
Operating TravelNote
TravelNotet records and stores messages for up to three minutes in total
length with simple controls. When you get an idea or remember
something important while you’re driving, you don’t have to try to
scribble it down or pull off the side of the road. All you have to do is
push a button and begin speaking.

To record a message:
1. Press and release the REC
button one time to start recording.
(An audible tone will sound,
confirming the onset of recording).
2. Press and release the REC
button a second time to end
recording. (An audible tone will sound again, confirming the end of
recording and the red indicator light will turn off.)
3. While a message is being recorded, the indicator light will be a solid
red.


4. If the message exceeds the available memory space, two tones will
sound, the indicator light will flash amber and recording will end.
The indicator light will flash amber and an “error” tone will sound if the
REC button is pressed when memory is full.
To play a message:
1. Press and release the PLAY
button to play the message.
2. Press and hold the PLAY button
to hear all the messages in
consecutive order starting with the
most recent.
3. If the PLAY button is pressed while a message is being listened to,
TravelNote will skip to the beginning of the next message.
4. During all PLAY functions, the indicator light will be a solid green.
The indicator light will flash amber and an “error” tone will sound if the
PLAY button is pressed but no message is currently in memory.

To delete a message:
1. Press and release the DEL button
while listening to a message or
shortly after. The indicator light will
flash green twice.
2. To delete all recorded messages,
simultaneously press and release the
PLAY and REC buttons at the same time. The indicator light will flash
green twice.
If the DEL button is inadvertently pressed or the time allotted (five
seconds) has passed, the indicator light will flash amber and an “error”
tone will sound.
