Potentially, unfortunately we can only guess.  The manual isn't clear?  

Otherwise only option as stated is to take it to a Best Buy or Fry's electronics or something like that and see if they will be able to tell.  The issue that I do not see is if there's a speed recommendation for the Micro SD/TF Card.

Here's a snip from something I found on choosing SD/TF cards:
----SNIP---->
SD, SDHC and SDXC

As SD cards have begun to physically shrink down in size over the years, the SD card can be considered the ‘full-size’ variant. It’s typically what is used in most modern digital cameras and nearly all laptops will come equipped with an SD card reader slot.

Where things can become confusing is when you see ‘SDHC’ and ‘SDXC’. The first stands for ‘Secure Digital High Capacity’. This was initially introduced to cover SD cards with a capacity above 2GB and below 32GB. The latter stands for ‘Secure Digital eXtra Capacity’, which go far beyond 32GB in size. You can buy SDXC cards with a whopping 2TB of storage.

Best microSD card: Expand your storage with the best microSD cards from £7

SD, SDHC and SDXC all physically look the same, therefore they’ll all fit in a regular SD card slot. Problems might arise depending on the device you’re looking to use them in. Older devices that pre-date SDXC’s introduction might therefore not be compatible, so be sure to check your product’s specifications. Devices are backwards compatible, so an SDXC-compatible device can use SDHC and SD cards. An SDHC-compatible device can use SDHC and SD cards, but will not be able to use SDXC cards.
<----Snip----
Found here at this link.  (However you'll need to scroll down past the Nintendo Switch mumbo jumbo):
http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/storage/1404380/how-to-choose-an-sd-card-class-and-speed-ratings-explained-and-pick-the-best-microsd

So all that being said, 32gb should be good to go.  Only issue is speed and compatibility of the Card to your dashcam.

MicroSD should be fine.  SDHC and SDXC is an unknown at this time.

Storage

Computer data storage, often called storage or memory, is a technology consisting of computer components and recording media used to retain digital data. In addition to local storage devices like CD and DVD readers, hard drives and flash drives, solid state drives can hold enormous amounts of data in a very small device. Cloud services and other new forms of remote storage also add to the capacity of devices and their ability to access more data without building additional data storage into a device.
