Sentry works when it wants.

Hi Guys,

My Sentry works when it wants to. I don't have any location excluded in my cat settings. The sentry onscreen warning does not come on when u approach the car. What I see on the screen is "tap key card to open". Then sometimes it records. I also don't see any onscreen notification that sentry has recorded something. Anyone else experiencing this?

I really need this feature working.
 
@PERRYCURTISE Have you verified that your storage device (USB stick, micro SD card, SSD, etc.) is working and recording? When parked you can press the icon to do a manual recording and then check to see if that is working? Perhaps it was never properly set up or it never identified your storage device? I'd also do that with nothing else plugged in. No extra USB connections for music, phone, etc. just the storage for sentry files. If you have newer MY then it probably came with USB stick in glove box already, no extra stick needed.

Is yours one of the new "vision" cars? I read that they were having issues with sentry (among other things) with them on the newer software.

It records just fine. No issues with recording. I see recording log for my drives but not sentry

that's not the case. I've turned my phone Bluetooth off and approached my phone and nothing happens. I've also had other people approach my car when I'm beyond Bluetooth range and sentry still doesn't come on. I can see from this forum that people have similar problem.
Exactly. I once had the same issue. I has to remove the hard drive to delete on a computer as it was a lot
