We're in the middle of filming documentary, have a big sync problem

It's really urgent, so I posted this also to Audio Professionals.

I really need your advice with this audio recording/sync problem.

We are filming documentary on a busy market. We are using Canon C300 with mic on it and we're recording audio separately.
Sometimes, audio guy is very close to the camera and sometimes is 15-20 meters away. We cannot use clapper or even clapping with hands or announcing the shots because it's to distracting to people we are filming.
After first day of filming we've found out that we have a huge sync problem.
We tried PluralEyes, but it's useless. I guess the problem is that audio from camera and audio recorder are too different.
Now we are thinking of buying Tiny Lockit TC generator and maybe Sync'N'Link for FCP7.
Does anyone have any experience with that generator or any form of TC syncing?
Or maybe some other advice? I still need to sync that first day with over 200 shots i have to sync "by ear".

Thank you
