DOD have good quality on all of their product, many manufactures can product similar GT350W based on NOVATEK solution.
The GT300W is more reliable.
Thank you ! thats good to know, i will be ordering 2 more gt300 from you guys.

anyone tried 720p60 mode yet?
Briefly, looks like it's interlaced.
Switched it back to 1080p directly (GT300W, 201304181)

some sort of software hack I think, has a lot of issues in this mode, not that 720p is a mode I'd want to use anyway

Interesting, I wonder why you never bothered to point that fact out instead of promoting on this very same thread that you have authentic GT350 while the thread title said "GT350W using TioTech GT300W / Dod LS300W hardware / firmware", one would think that the first thing to do (as a seller of both) to correct that misconception, no ?!

btw, its good to see you have reduced your price to match DX just after I posted the DX link ..:twisted: might want to reduce the GT300W similarly and everyone would end up buying it from you instead of taking their chances with GT350W ;) (now that it turned out not be GT300W all of a sudden)

By the way, any idea why other sellers are promoting the GT350 as a 6G lens DVR ?

Also why are sellers selling the GT350W are showing pictures of the GT300W PCB and claiming it is whats inside the GT350W housing ? (note that it was these very same posts that you confirmed on this thread).
http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?spm=a230r.1.14.193.H8IErv&id=20704163815

I am not sure what are you trying to imply .. Shadow Tec website says GT350W has a 6 element lens http://www.shadow-tec.com/info.asp?id=79 just like the GT300W http://www.shadow-tec.com/info.asp?id=78

Are you saying that shadow-tec is lying about their own product ? but on this thread you confirmed that you are dealing directly with them .. !!

Or are you trying to imply that DX GT350W might not be authentic because its cheap ? but you have matched their price now, are you selling the same fake DVR too ?

Regarding GT350W not using 6G lens, how you comment on the info that all Aliexpress sellers of GT350W advertise it using 6G lens and having same TIoTech hardware ?
Also Shadow Tec itself advertises 6G lens:

http://www.shadow-tec.com/info.asp?id=79
http://translate.google.ie/translate?sl ... 79&act=url

http://www.shadow-tec.com/info.asp?id=22

http://translate.google.ie/translate?hl ... p%3Fid%3D3

All authorised Shadow Tec dealers advertise GT350W using TioTech A8 CPU and 6G lens:

hello tbkonwso1,
Any chance you can open the housing and confirm which is which ?
If the GT350W = GT300W as the PCB pictures posted by niko earlier in the thread, or is it a different hardware inside the housing as claimed by billknow .
TIA

if you do this be careful when releasing the clips near the memory card slot as it's easy to break the housing at that section

Thanks for the tip jokiin, we really need this sorted out because things are starting to get confusing here.

I have a few different versions of this same camera here (research purposes) including the genuine DOD version and I can tell you there's not a lot between them

Re: GT350W using TioTech GT300W / Dod LS300W hardware / firm

I'm starting to think that the gt350w I bought is not the same as the dod ones, my night videos are horrible with tons of noise and software sharpening.

I'm starting to think that the gt350w I bought is not the same as the dod ones, my night videos are horrible with tons of noise and software sharpening.

Here is a dawn getting dark video
It look good to me considering youtube compression rate. In the places where surrounding is darkened its because of AWB ( auto white balance ) issue.

From LS300W / GT300W topic you can read fowoffer replay:

viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1025&start=130

by billknow » Thu Jun 20, 2013 10:27 am

There will be a new firmware released for GT300W, When I got it I will post on the forum.
The new firmware improved:
1. licence number stamp
2. AWB
3. Image flip

Same AWB issue was confirmed by jokiin as well in that thread.

I hope LS300W / GT300W firmware upgrade can work on GT350W series as well, but at the moment it is early to say.

Other than that your GT350W video quality is OK ( I mean it is as it is ) and GT350W you bought from Foxoffer is original Shadow Tec product.

Just for your own peace of mind you can open device using spare old plastic swipe or credit card and then see inside, you should find exactly the same PCB with all same TioTech microchips as early posted in this thread.
When doing this, you may take pictures and share with us.

Re: GT350W using TioTech GT300W / Dod LS300W hardware / firm

I did collection of over 60 RAW video files from DOD LS300W.
You can check thread and download to compare with your GT350W

Collection of RAW video files LS300W / GT300W / GT350W

http://dashcamtalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1693

When you are ready with your RAW video files, you may also post them there in that thread when you get a chance.

Thank you.

I've got a genuine DOD one and night video is good but not fantastic

Can you explain night video not being not fantastic. What is missing and could be better in your opinion ?

Re: GT350W using TioTech GT300W / Dod LS300W hardware / firm

I just bought the GT350W from foxoffer. Unlike the photos on the site, the device now has the shadowtec logo and markings on the front plate. I have two issues though:

1. The mini-usb connector in the device is not secure. It's so loose that it pops out all the time when driving.

2. The device worked for a few hours, but now complains "no sd card inserted" even though there is one inserted. It's a high quality sandisk ultra 32gb that I've tried on a desktop, a tablet, as well as a camera, which all read it fine. I've tried formatting it, but the GT350W still complains about this. If I turn the GT350W on and off several times, it might work and not show the "no sd card inserted" message about 1 in 5 times.

Anyone else having these issues?

Did you formatted a microsd card to FAT32 in your PC using standard procedure under file properties ?

Regarding mini usb connector there are two ways, please check my post and also how V8Rocks solutions.

Regarding mini-usb, try to use mini need pliers to slightly ( very slightly ) pry male mini-usb tip outer casing ( hope you know what I mean, sorry for my english ).

I addressed the USB socket issue. Ironically I was not planning on opening the unit. As I was attempting to bend inward usb outer casing, the case cracked open, so I ventured into opening unit and bending lock leaf on the usb socket casing. It is locking up now, you kind of feel it when inserting the cable connector.

Re: GT350W using TioTech GT300W / Dod LS300W hardware / firm

Hello billknow,
I have noticed that you have managed to avoid replying on this thread to clarify the specs of the hardware you are selling for people as GT350. I noticed you are visiting the forums regularly promoting your merchandise on other threads. Do you have any thing to say about the confusion you created on this thread ? can the product information you give on other threads be trusted or will just leave other threads whenever potential customers ask for clarifications about your claims ?!

@ niko
You might want to remove foxoffer link from your original post or at least state they are selling GT350 with 4G lens so people are aware of that before ordering from them.

[/quote]

Recently most customer ask me to confirm whether the GT350W is same as GT300W, so I contact shadow directly, they told me is 4G lens.
Also I got message from other manufacture which produced same product as GT350W, they also told me is 4G lens. Others call GT350W as G1W or D8. GT350W is just a golden version with Shadow logo and sell on higher price.
I see you post the Taobao link, i want to say most of Taobao products description is not trustable.
The GT350W camera is not from DOD, so there is no Tiotech print on the chipset. Many sellers just copy the GT300W spec to GT350W. So the pcb picture showed on Taobao is not ture.
Why the GT350W is much cheaper than GT300W, first it use different lens, second it is not from DOD manufacture.
Many manufacture can produce the DVR based on NT96650 and use different shell.
