    Hello, what are the differences between the Ultra and Ultra Plus micro SD card? I am considering either a 32GB or 64GB one.

    Is it better to order via BestBuy or Staples rather than Amazon? I recall few years ago, there were complaints that some of those sold through Amazon were counterfeit and files stored in those products became corrupted.

    The ultra plus has double the peak read and write speed. Whether you can take advantage of the higher speed, I have no idea, it may depend on the SD card interface in your machine.

    So what are you using the card for? The Ultra cards are now rather slow, at 80 MB/s. I use the Extreme Pro U3 280 MB/s as I shoot 4K videos.

    For garmin dash cam 35. I read that SanDisk Ultra's cards are not good for dash cam.

    I'm going to suggest that you go to one of the many Garmin or GPS enthusiast websites and ask the people who own these devices what they are successfully using.
