    Shouldn’t this be a comprehensive claim? Collision is for driving. Or is it because it is another car causing the damage?

    Either way, she pays. Good work.

    It was the only car to park next to me during the 2 hours I was parked there...just bad luck I guess.

    Tried to get a pic but too much reflection. It was a bigger than normal door ding...it jumped out at me:mad:. It really looked like someone did it intentionally but after viewing the vid I think she was just oblivious or something.

    The officer wrote out a report based on the video then went to her house and got her information. I simply submitted the report to her insurance company.

    Good that the front camera caught her licence plate. That's my main concern - in most of the video released the licence number isn't visible.

    That's what I thought but apparently when the car isn't moving only "acts of nature" are covered by comprehensive.

    I really need to start using Sentry mode more often.

    I didn't want to show the license plate of the other car(privacy thing) but it was a bit pixelated and showed four of six numbers(which was enough)

    Dude. I ran dual channel blackvue before sentry mode was ever announced.

    Now I run them together.

    Thank GOD you had Sentry Mode on! I would be so pissed, my head would explode! I hope this person's insurance skyrockets. Her blatant disregard for your car is appalling.

    No sentry mode videos are ever deleted by the car.

    I went through a ton of clips. Finding the right one was like winning the lottery!

    I sure would love access to the Sentry mode videos in the GUI. Also looking forward to the setting that lets me have it enable automatically when I'm not at home/work

    This can currently be done through the Stats app. If you have an iPhone, that is.
