If you think it is important enough to record data on a dash cam or CCTV system then why risk recording to a memory card that is simply not suitable ? Find out why you should be using one of the Micro SD cards from either the Samsung PRO Endurance Micro SDXC offering or SanDisk High Endurance 100MBs Micro SDXC Card range, both cards are specifically designed to work in dash cam and CCTV monitoring systems.
