Re: Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

I think there's zero chance of an upgrade on the existing unit (when it first came out it was already an old OS and some of us asked HH what on earth they were thinking). Maybe the next unit (no news on one, but they're bound to.be working on it) will come out on Nougat/Oreo? *sigh*

I'm tring to unlock the bootloader via adb (disaperaing ions I assume only apply to the UI)
I'm sorry to say that Hammerhead removed the ability to unlock the bootloader many months ago (a year ago or so?). There were protests at the time, but sadly they fell on deaf ears.

Re: Updated Draft Guide: Install Google Play Services

You can't unlock the bootloader unless you manage to find a very early Karoo with early software, before they disabled this.

However, you can still sideload a lot of third-party apps with the locked bootloader. You don't need an unlocked bootloader for sideloading.

Re: Uk Map update

That's pretty rubbish. I would put in a support ticket to HH via support@hammerhead.io

HH should be doing periodic updates to their maps.

Re: Are these instructions up to date

I could be wrong because I haven't installed 3rd party apps on my Karoo, but I think the only change is that those apps are now visible via the stock Karoo launcher. I assume that this means there's less need for 3rd party launchers now. The way to install apps should still be the same.

Re: Karoo in boot loop

Does it still boot loop if connected to your PC in USB debugging mode (you'll need to be in Developer mode to turn that on). Raise a support ticket with HH.

Re: Waypoints/direct .gpx transfer/measurements

1. Sorry, I don't know, but I suspect not.

2. No. I agree that this would be a very useful feature, also for if you find the Dashboard is down just at a critical moment you need to download a route before you go out.

3. Can you clarify exactly which dimensions you mean, please?

Re: Compatibility with Garmin Remote?

I don't recall seeing anyone saying they use one with Karoo, or any release notes from Hammerhead saying that they'd added support for it, so I strongly suspect that it doesn't work. Though I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

Re: Current status?

To the best of my knowledge, neither Garmin or Wahoo publish a roadmap. If they do, I’d like to see it. Hammerhead used to publish a roadmap and, while nice, I thought it sort of crazy from a product management perspective that they did. It’s common knowledge in tech marketing of the disastrous con...

Re: Current status?

No one who has introduced a cycling computer in pretty much the history of the industry has had it go smoothly or as quickly as they had hoped. No, but Wahoo progressed 1000x more in their first year than Hammerhead did. Hammerhead were so overly optimistic to start with it was foolhardy (and Wahoo...
