Hi Folks,

I am going to buy Bandit but I have few question. Does it support OnePlus2? Is there any editing software that supports is under Linux? Does it get sw updates nowdays?

Thanks!

    As far a Linux support; the Bandit Studio isn't supported in Linux unless you can get it to work with wine. I have not investigated that deeply. I do use Shotcut to edit my videos in Linux though with great results there.

    I wouldn't buy a Bandit, tbh. Don't get me wrong. it's a great camera but the software and firmware seems completely dead; no updates in ages. It seems like TomTom has abandoned it.

    I'd agree, the iPhone app won't let me register & Studio won't work with my laptop. (see my post in the forum)

    The camera is fine, the software useless.

    As MHolm wrote, don't waste your money on something that is not supported. I posted "https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/tomtom-bandit-action-camera-477/tomtom-bandit-is-it-still-supported-1024986, and as yet there has been no communication from anyone from Tomtom. Yes I have the camera and i like it, but to dish out money with no support, no thanks. My suggestion is look at Gopro 5 which I ended up buying as a second camera or the Sony action camera's which I hear are excellent.

    Sad to hear. I am really excited about TomTom Bandit, but if there is no support for it it is better to buy a supported camera. Are there anyone from TomTom who can answer to the support questions, and planned SW updates?

    Indeed, so am I - I cannot advise anyone to buy the Bandit though - not without proper support. I cannot understand why TomTom keeps selling something that isn't properly supported. The camera as such functions fine as is, but I would like to see it improving with new updates for both the firmware and Bandit Studio.

    Software wise, I doubt TomTom will give you any roadmap (I hope TomTom proves me wrong). I haven't had to use their phone support - but my impression is that they do respond, also when it comes to Bandit.

    From what I have seen, the support seems to be pretty good so far. I got the bandit when it was first released, and I'm very happy with mine. I really do hope we see some improvements coming in the near future of course.

    Can anybody share a raw videofiles of Bandit? I am really curious are the sensors data in the raw data, or the device handles them separately? I would like to investigate if we can implement such functionality in OpenShot or other Open Source editor.

    I got mine working by buying a specific SD card as recommended by TomTom (why others don't work well is beyond me). Twice the price of the last one I bought.
