Multiple companies make high endurance SD cards for things like dash cams and automobiles. Take, for example, WD https://www.westerndigital.com/products/embedded-removable-f...

Didn't know that, thanks.

But there's still the problem of a friction fit connection in an environment with a lot of vibration and contaminants. Seems like these would be good for use cases where the part needs to be removable and also have high write cycles, like a dash cam or data logger that has no other interface to a PC.

Also the eMMC interface exposes quite a bit of the underlying hardware (see mmc-utils on Linux). With SD cards I think you're generally stuck with some kind of SMART interface.
