    What a great way to start the new year. Happened some time last night while we were out. Didn't have sentry mode on.

    That thumbs down means “sorry, that sucks!” Just when I start to have faith in my fellow humans again, they go and prove themselves to be douche bags.

    That would’ve killed me on the inside man! I’m so sorry! Praying for a better year for you! Keep your sentry mode on man!

    my new years resolution has also been to always have sentry mode on. while electricity is either supercheap (i.e. USA) or free destination chargers everywhere (Australia/Europe) you just gotta leave it on.

    I used to leave it off at work, but after seeing this I’m adding it to be always on except for home as my new year resolution

    Looks like standard parallel parking technique in Boston.

    I've seen some people park by the Braille method everywhere I've lived in 64 years - Usually in a huge Suburban

    That's horrible! My sentry is on everywhere except my garage at home. I hope one of the next updates is having sentry occurrences pop up on our phones, maybe catch the f'ing pigs red handed.

    Any chance your building and another building nearby have cameras recording 24/7?

    Sorry to hear that.... Look at the bright side, no one's injured... It's just a bumper.

    Hate seeing stuff like this especially with hit and run drivers who can't accept responsibility. Hope the rest of the year is better for you. What city did this happen in? Does it look just like paint scrape?

    I have my Sentry set for always unless at home, and I carry an extra microSD card and reader in case I need or want to check something and then at least have a replacement to put in the car immediately (too easy to get busy and then forget to reinsert as soon as done checking it).

    I just noticed you're in SoCali. I hired a mobile bumper repair service to repair a hole in my bumper and repaint. Looks perfect; I gave him five stars on Yelp. Cost me $450. He did the repair in an alley in Burbank in a couple hours. I also referred someone else from here to the same guy. If you'd like his name and number, hit me up with a private message. You might as well get the repair over with.
