It’s best to only use high endurance cards for dash cams

SanDisk Ultra microSD cards are specifically not recommended by most dashcam manufacturers, apparently because they acquired a bad reputation for early failure in dashcam forums. While they use the same TLC flash memory as other cards, it was speculated that Sandisk may have used tighter criteria for allowed write failures than other manufacturers, causing them to fail earlier in the continuous-writing dashcam application. It may also be partly that dashcam use voids the Sandisk warranty.

While high-endurance microSD cards are recommended for dashcam use, note 2 things:

1. The Sandisk "high endurance" cards do not claim to use MLC flash memory like all the other high-endurance cards, so they may still be using TLC.

2. A bigger card is always better for endurance, because it will be overwritten less often. Therefore a cheaper bigger card may actually serve better for a dashcam than an expensive smaller higher-endurance card.

I think a microSD card's life depends on how much the card gets used.

A regular Sony microSD lasted 3 months in my TP-Link IP camera, in 24-hour recording mode. I am looking out for Amazon's high endurance microSD deals.

Another regular microSD (Kingston) has been in my dashcam for 15 months and is still fine. But it works only 20 minutes per day, and 1-2 hours max during weekends.
If my sanity has to go, it is my job to keep its absence to myself. :D

It is not an old wives tale. Some regular micro SD cards were not designed for constant writes such as dashcam usage. They will work but chance of failure is higher after extended usage, with results varying from brand to brand.

If you want to stick with regular micro SD due to cost, buy a larger one to help lower failure rate.
