This is from Foxoffer "We only test it with sandisk ultra class10 64gb card, it works well."
So you guys think it will work different brands?
At our company we only use Adata class 10 32gb and the camera runs perfect.

The reason I asked that because I already order a Adata class 10 64gb card......

I believe the ad from Foxoffer only says supporting up to 32GB card, so that probably means no official confirmation if 64GB or bigger cards will work with this dashcam. It may or may not work but unless there is another user who can report their experience, it will be up to you to decide if you are willing to take the risk.

Just an update on battery runtime. I ordered additional two black units for family and now received them (within one week - good job Foxoffer!). I quickly tested the battery on one of the units. Basically straight out of the box, with just a couple of minutes of charging (but battery gauge was displaying full), the unit ran for 7 minutes without a memory card, but previewing video on screen. This is a lot better than 1.5 minutes I'm getting with the silver unit I received originally, and enough for making e.g. quick settings changes without needing to be plugged in.
I haven't tested the second black unit yet.

try a different brand of memory card
I had firmware up to date, used genuine two different 32gb samsung and 16gb sandisk ultra, both class 10, both formatted numerous times in the unit, it made no difference.:(

yeah if it has a problem sometimes there's no magic fix, trying some other memory cards though is always advisable as they can be finicky about which ones they work with sometimes

Try a Class 4 card. Certain Class 10 cards are sometimes an issue.
