What a pity, i don't plan to sideload a hundred apps, but there are some that will not work without google play So far Telegram and Twonav work fine without google play (though the latter always pops us google play is needed, you just click on OK and the app runs fine).

Re: what apps did you sideload on the Karoo

I added telegram today

I got the apk from telegram itself (https://telegram.org/apps)

Works like a charm. I mostly want it as an easy way to share files (say a gpx from my phone to the karoo)

Regards

Let me say i would first install a file manager (in my case the xiaomi file manager). With that installed then you can install any other app from the file manager itself: cop...
