Dash Cam Memory
Dash cams have become extremely popular over the last few years, at least 1 in 4 motorists now have a dash cam in their car, they offer the driver invaluable legal and insurance peace of mind should they have an accident or problem when on the move.
Almost all dash cams use Micro SD memory to store the journey data they record. Initially the standard Micro SD / SDXC was the card of choice, however, in time manufacturers found the fault / return rate of memory cards used in car cameras had increased to higher levels than expected. The reason for this increase, the continuous use writing and rewriting data on a card in a dash cam was basically wearing the cards out. This led the manufacturers such as SanDisk and Samsung to change the warranty on Micro SD cards that were not suitable for dash cams.
This problem led the main manufacturers of Micro SD memory to develop and launch a new range of memory called Endurance Micro SD, memory in this range is of a higher quality wafer and able to sustain continuous rewriting of data with and therefore offering extensive durability.
Using a none Endurance card in your dash cam now invalidates the card warranty, so although a little more expensive than regular Micro SD cards, even the higher speed ranges such as Extreme, the only card suitable for use in a car camera are Endurance Micro SD / SDXC.
