The Sandisk warranty is a limited warranty only - see the small print on the Sandisk website.

The warranty also excludes any failure of the card as a result of use in dash cams, CCTVs, surveillance devices etc.

Seems more like a problem related specifically to you, your dash cam and the one card you bought (maybe fake? ebay?)
Sandisk is usually the best brand of card

I am sure the cards are great - but maybe not for dashcams.
Thanks OP, just what I am looking for, hot

I am not so sure mate. I have bought 4 SanDisk cards to date out of which 2 have failed. On the other hand I have bought around 6 of various other brands and "none" of them failed.
My be its just a coincidence but I am not inclined to buy a SanDisk again .... and yes they come with a warranty but I think most peopel (like me) would not want to send off a card to SanDisk with their personal data on it.
I doubt it was fake it was from Halfords.

Read this review which backs up my faulty camera, which didn’t record the crash which I was involved in.

Fair enough, maybe their quality has reduced since taking a big share of the market.

Bear in mind Car Cam Central is a man with a webcam. There's not a lot of evidence provided. If they were as bad as he infers you should be seeing a lot of negative feedback elsewhere.
Don’t use this version in your cam as it’s not made for that.

You want a the dedicated version with stronger cells for multiple rewrites.
These Ultra cards are incredibly unreliable, due to the poor quality TLC nand memory in them.

I've owned 3 of these and all failed within 2 years. Complete waste of money and they lose your data as well.

ICE COLD.

These can't be used in dash cams - they're specifically excluded from the warranty by Sandisk who are aware of their poor write durability.

However, the reliability of these cards is poor in general. I've had 3 of these fail with use in a smart phone just doing a mix of normal stuff.

Avoid these cards like the plague unless you want your data going up in smoke. Only people who don't know any better post deals for this card.

Can you suggest a suitable option for dash cams?

Look for one stated to be a 'high durability" or "high endurance" card eg.

There doesn't appear to be anything that guarantees performance with a dash cam, but guarantees are getting tighter anyway, so that's not much of a surprise.
You can pay twice the price and get twice the life, which isn't much of an improvement. Given the huge variation in dash cam quality and the number of different read/write processes used, I find it strange that the man with the webcam can make such a sweeping statement.

Nextbase says

"Use a good quality branded SD card between 4GB and 32GB (suggested) and format the card from with in the SETUP menu of the iN-CAR CAM."

I'm tempted to go for this option; picstop.co.uk/mic…tml
I realise its still Sandisk but dash-cam specific and supported by the video clip above. My current one was supplied by Nextbase with the unit, its a Sandisk Ultra SDHC 48MB/s Class 10.

It's like everything else that stores data. It'll be fine until it isn't. First sign of anything dodgy, replace it with a new one. Fortunately they're relatively cheap.
I'd ignore webcam man.
