Re: Latest update - Karoo essentially DOA

Hi John, sorry to hear about your Karoo problems, especially at the moment when you need it most. I don't know why but my Karoo has yet to fail me, granted I have not been ridden as much this month, but I had done smaller rides from 12km to just over 100km, but none had failed thus far, however my r...

Re: Improving Karoo through the use of Android Apps

I’ve done several rides with Osmand so far and when I swipe back to the Karoo map and nav screens, they look pitiful in comparison. All I use Karoo for anymore is the data recording. I had kinda hoped for that when I bought my Karoo as I've been using OSMand on my phone almost every day for the las...

Re: How to install third-party apps on your Karoo

Here's a link on how to install adb on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Beyond that, the commands to install are identical for all platforms. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.xda-developers.com/install-adb-windows-macos-linux/amp/ Just in case those who are not familiar with MacOSX or Linux command, for th...

Re: ANT+ not accessible to 3rd party apps

But have you tried installing ARS from the Play Store? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dsi.ant.service.socket Thanks Steve, yes I did try install everything the ANT Tester suggested, still no go, as soon as I installed ARS, the Built-in firmware c...

ANT+ not accessible to 3rd party apps

Hi All, has anyone figured out how to access Karoo's ANT+ radio from side-loaded 3rd party apps? I ran ANT Tester and it shown ANT+ Radio is detected, the firmware however says requires ARS. If we could get this running then Karoo can basically do everything I ever need for a bike computer, I am run...

Re: what apps did you sideload on the Karoo

Does Komoot work well? I use it on iOS sometimes and like it. Yes it worked extremely well, just like it would on a full size Android phone, nice and smooth. I have added "APK Installer", coupled with DropSync or Dropbox, I could now just drag and drop downloaded .apk files onto my dropbox on compu...

Re: what apps did you sideload on the Karoo

on top of Komoot and OSMAnd, I have Dropsync for the ease of getting .gpx file onto Karoo for OSM by drag & drop on the desktop.

Switchr for fast switching between HH's Ride app and OSM while on the bike.

plus a few games lol.
