Like the title says, all the sellers on ebay claim that the 0805 mini only supports memory cards up to 32gb.
The review here and the comparison table shows that it can go up to 128gb.
Are these knockoffs and that's why they don't support larger cards or am I missing something?
You're not missing anything, and there's absolutely no special reason either. I'd say in my opinion it's a possibility that it's the safest capacity that the dash cam's software can support. Just imagine packing all those data in real time, in different weather conditions too. And why would you want to go for a very high capacity memory? 32 GB should be safe enough for any traveling distance (unless you plan on making longer trips that you don't really want to delete any recorded video as souvenir).
Just imagine the horror if you plan on reviewing your recorded files and you have more than hundreds of videos to check (just to pick out that very one where you almost had a close call or actually encountered the accident - knock on wood), I don't think that would be fun at all.
About knockoffs... It's inevitable. Knockoffs are everywhere. You really have to do an extensive research with not just the dash cam you're buying, but with anything and everything that you're putting your money into. Some people surely made mistake/s into acquiring knockoffs (not because they knew about it, but because they did not do an extensive research) and we should learn from their mistake/s so we don't have to go through the same ordeal that they have experienced. In short, a little step further into knowing what you're trying to get pays off in the long run.
