Re: what apps did you sideload on the Karoo

I just installed AirDroid for easy file transfer between Karoo and any computer with a web browser. I had used it on my smartphones for quite a while, but just got the idea now to drop it into the Karoo. Works great.

Re: Auto elevation calibration

- Auto-calibration only takes place 1)At the start of the ride. 2)If WiFi is active. Might be one of the dumber things I've heard about the Karoo in recent weeks. Why would any *GPS* device need WiFi to determine its location and elevation? Colossally stupid... EDIT: Garmins from not that long ago ...

Re: TrainerRoad

I have ANT+ only enabled on my Karoo. My powermeter can do BT as well... but since all my other sensors are ANT+ as well and the sensor info for the power meter like battery status can only be seen with the ANT+ protocol, I opted to use that. So, I close all apps on the Karoo, turn off the sensors i...

Re: TrainerRoad

I have side loaded Trainerroad for about two weeks now. But the problem in my setup, it's very laggy and I don't know why. Sometimes the timer and the sensor numbers like power, heart rate, cadence is stuck for up to 30 seconds and then it continues but pretty much right away stutters again. I have ...

Re: 345 Problems

Today ANT+ got stuck on my Karoo about 15 miles into my ride. Disabling and enabling the sensors with the pull down menu got it going again. I only noticed, because my heart rate, cadence and power numbers didn't change on the display. Had me wondering why 324W felt so easy. Haha. No other problems ...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Yesterday I rode my MTB. Garmin speed, cadence and heart rate sensor connected to that bike. Battery drain was less than 9% per hour. So that was cool. On the race bike with a PowerTap C1 I get between 11-12% per hour and the cadence is wack. So it appears the cadence recording between the PowerTap ...

No power meter support. For me, that's a no go.

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Your battery issues are really odd. I took an 8 hours ride yesterday and it sucked down 85% battery. Funny part about mine is, I got home, uploaded the rides to strava and all of a sudden it was at 1% battery. :D But so far my Karoo is behaving from a battery standpoint. The only problem is still my...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Short ride around the block today. Covered a bit over 30 miles on my ride. And what can I see.. the cadence is working since the last update pretty much 98% of the time. That's a huge step forward compared to the hour long dropouts on other rides. Temperature seems to work. Also my TbT instructions ...

Re: Auto-Pause + Movement...

Uploaded the new software (1.5.105.3) released today and went for a short ride. I could load a course and start my ride with Auto-Pause ON from a standstill, and the navigation and TBT worked! Previously, I had to roll out before loading a course and starting the ride. I will do a longer test on Sa...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

I'm having the same problem with my power meter (which also supplies cadence since mine is a Stages crank based PM). Back a couple of revisions ago, I was getting about 50% of the power reported (was 50% low). HH told me to switch over to a bluetooth connection for the PM. I did so and the power nu...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Battery usage is fairly constant on my Karoo... Between 9-12%. Depending if I use TBT or not. During my Saturday ride I was over 6 hours in the saddle and the Karoo came home with 26% left in the tank. The only problem I'm currently having is the cadence. It suddenly starts to record the cadence and...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Interesting that your elevation is quite good, drisotope. Mine has been terrible ever since the last upgrade. Apparently today I did 72,000 feet of climbing and 63,000 feet of descending. That's despite me manually setting the correct altitude right at the start. I have the same issue with the clim...

Re: 1.5.19.3 Not impressed yet

Using Golden Cheetah as the analyser, it's interesting to see what data has dropped during my 140km ride today. The ride distance and ride time is pretty much exactly the same as my Edge 520. Power seems to be also only off by 10W between the two recordings. But the altitude, cadence and GPS.. faili...

Re: 1.5.19.3 Not impressed yet

Very interested to hear what happens with your switch to BTLE. In looking at mine closer, the effort under ANT+ was around 50% of what was recorded on my Wahoo Elemnt. BTLE was (guessing) 25-35% low. Better but still unacceptable. Guessing here, but I think the Karoo is missing data reports from th...

Re: 1.5.19.3 Not impressed yet

I have the same issues with a powerTap C1. I currently have it connected over ANT+ and I did a first longer ride yesterday with the Karoo and the C1. Slogging up a 7% hill at full power only showed avg. 300W, which is definitely too low as I can also see the dropouts in Strava happening. Also it see...
