Re: Can’t add Karoo “launcher” to Nova home screen?

Yes! That Android head was the icon I had on a previous setup, before I did a factory reset. However, on this setup, it was never available to select to put onto the home screen.

..and you are right! No more need for a launcher with the latest update from Hammerhead. Problem...avoided!

Re: ATG Release 1.54.624.3

So funny -- I don't care a whit about bike profiles -- tho may like them once I see them -- nor do I care about Strava Live segments (whatever those are). Now...keeping my sensors connected during a ride? Keeping Karoo from freezing for rides of ten hours, twenty hours, or more? That's what captures...

Re: Can’t add Karoo “launcher” to Nova home screen?

Yep — Dev mode is required to hook up to usb to sideload.

I can see ride app, pages, sensors, etc, but not the Karoo launcher proper.

Thanks!

Can’t add Karoo “launcher” to Nova home screen?

Hi all, I recently did a factory reset on my Karoo, and then configured for sideloading again. Previously, I ended up with a “launcher” icon on my Nova home screen that would fire up he Karoo launcher. I liked that. After the wipe and new setup, I try browsing and searching for “launcher” among the ...

Re: ATG Release 1.54.624.3

Have there been, what -- three or so ATG releases since the last full official release?

Nice to hear about all of these things in the pipeline, of course, but it would be awesome for some of them to make it out to the whole user base at some point!

Re: Karoo back on track ?

Yes, improving...buuuut I can't seem to get it to "survive" a 10+hour ride without losing sensors and, usually, at some point, locking up and forcing a reboot. In the meantime I bought a little Lyzne computer to use for long/important rides, unfortunately. I still hope that the Karoo can reach basel...

Re: ATG Release 1.44.608.3

Sweet!!

My Karoo lost sensors and then froze/crashed hard about seven hours into a 200k on Sunday. D'oh.

Hoping it gets to the point where it can do 90 hours without losing sensors or crashing! I have high expectations!!

Re: hammerhead - Karoo-survey

The mock-up proposed new version was "taller" and "skinnier" -- and less wasted border -- effectively giving more display area, right?

That was my impression.

Re: Screen off while navigating ? Auto back on ?

Can you give us your impression of how much "screen off" helps with battery life?

Thanks!!

I see what you mean.

Can you not just access the same thing by tapping on the app in the list of Apps and then Permissions? Or does that not give you what you need?
I can.

Where did the other screen go, though, I wonder?

Re: what apps did you sideload on the Karoo

Edit: I found how to do it.. in the settings menu go to apps and then in the settings menu on top of the screen and then the app permissions menu... Can you all help here? Earlier today I happened upon just this app permissions menu -- from which I could browse the list of permissions category, see...

Re: HX Navigation Service has stopped

After today's update I now have a ZERO percent success rate getting the HH to provide TBT instructions. It just sits at "Waiting for Instructions". Sometimes the map will show a red line indicating directions to the start of my route, but that's it. Navigation is 100% dead in the water. It was 100%...
