My dashcam is 5 months old, 128 GB, Blackvue SD card, v1.006, recording in Extreme mode.

On 5/23 I couldn't access via WiFi and got the failed to connect to WiFi error when trying to load the videos list. I had to unplug and replug the camera to restore functionality.

On 5/31 the same symptoms happened. I repeated the resolution but this time it reinitialized the SD card. Functionality was restored but I forcefully reformatted the SD card again.

This doesn't seem normal. Thoughts?

I just saw the Blackvue recommends getting a new SD every 6 months and to format it once a month.

Thoughts on this?

Isn't it one of the issues of last 1.006 firmware release?

Check your firmware version.
1. 006 has some wifi and cloud connectivity issues

I don't use cloud but would there wifi issues prevent it from recording?

My 650S will die on hot days, if I'm parked in the sun for long periods of time. As we're getting into summer, I expect to hear a lot more complaints about heat-related crashes. Is that possibly a factor in your case?

Possibly. I park outside at work in Texas heat, but under a covered car park
