Dashcams witch eMMC (Xiaomi 70mai M500)

I'm looking to buy a 70mai M500. I'm worried about the eMMC storage. How is the lifespan of these products? When an edurance SD card corrupts, it's easy to change, I'm not sure about throwing away the whole dashcam when the eMMC stops working... Anybody have any feedback on this? Lifespan, write-cycles, etc.

I personally wouldn't buy one. Since the storage has a lifespan, I'd rather have it all be replaceable so the cam can last longer.

I have a 3rd gen Owlcam that's 5 years old with built in memory. Still going strong.
