I read somewhere on the DOD website that Sandisk cards are not compatible with DOD cameras.
Anyway, for me, I use ADATA 32 GB.

Currently I'm using a 128gb Samsung Evo Plus U3 card in my LS360W. Also used 128gb Toshiba Exceria U3 card.

https://dod-tech.ca/en/supportcenter/formatting-64gb-microsdxc-cards-for-dod-tech-cameras/#PC

I downloaded the fat32 formatter software, formatted the cards as fat32. Both 128gb cards work fine.... No issues..
Cool info! One of my grips about dash cams is having to use 32 GB cards! I never thought to try reformatting larger cards. \

Thanks!
Yes. By default windows will format card of 32gb of less as fat32..... Otherwise it'll be exfat or NTFS. Which many dash cams don't read.....

So by using special software to format any card as fat32, it will allow dash cams to be able to read these cards...

And, on a side note, this is also true for other things like Bluetooth speakers with built in mp3 players.... The manufacturer states a maximum of 32gb just for ease of compatibility.... But again, if you format larger cards as fat32 then these other devices will also be able to use larger cards...

I am also using 128gb cards my portable bluetooth speakers. More music, less repartition...

P.S. Sorry if I'm teaching you to suck eggs.....

Not sure about the suck eggs part but I appreciate the info. I've reformatted external drives but never memory cards.

larger than 32gb the cards are exFAT by default, don't ever use NTFS on a memory card as it will cause premature wear

When are peeps going to 'get' SD cards , simple Class 10 is ample , no need for Class 10 U3 , my camera is 10 Mbps , 48 Mbps is just 6 MB/s which is Class 6 .

Then there's the memory cell type , TLC Nand and MLC Nand , MLC can be loop recording rewritten many more times over .

So use a Samsung Evo or San Disk Ultra TLC card in a dash cam and it's warranty void !
