Re: There is now offline routing on Karoo.

Hi, Juste downloaded the lyes version (1.99.692.3) When I try to create a route from scratch while beeing offline it says ''no internet connection'' so no way to plan a route. What you're saying is that this would be possible while riding? Why the difference? And how do you edit in ride being offlin...

Re: Boot loop. Cannot use Karoo anymore

Just some feedback after having solved the problem, thanks to some tips here. I did the réinitialisation as described. When leaving the Karoo without added sideloaded sw all is well. However, when installing the Nova launcher, the problem reappears: when the keyboard for pin comes up, I can type one...

Re: Boot loop. Cannot use Karoo anymore

I may have to that although that would delete all the android apps I've sideloaded (via adb) no? Will I be able to reload these you thi...

Boot loop. Cannot use Karoo anymore

Hi, When starting my Karoo (I'm on the last official firmware, not the one of the test group) it starts normally and shows the pin code input screen. Once I click on the first digit of my code, the screen is blocked. I cannot power down. I have to wait until the Karoo reboots. And then all the same ...

Re: hammerhead - Karoo-survey

The ''what would you pay for a grade A solution'' question is funny indeed. I stated that I found the Karoo rather grade C or D for the moment in an earlier question, with all the bugs and lack of functionality we have sofar. So what would I pay for a grade A solution... I replied: exactly the price...

Re: Setting up OSMand for Cycling

I didn't know that the sources are 'open'... I would be very interested in trying to modify some minor things as well... But that would require a lot of willpower and.... time... Keep us posted please if ever you manage to take out this automatic zoom behaviour! Thanks, Paul Thanks, my pleasure :) I...

Re: Connect to Bluetooth ear plugs

Just to let you know... I managed to connect a Bluetooth speaker/mic (BeatPill XL) and the Facebook messenger app and O can happily call those having the messenger app installed. Works flawlessly!!

So the Karoo is capable of having the mic over bluetooth

Re: INSTALL_FAILED_OLDER_SDK

Thanks Steve, It's the app ''My RouteMap'' app, made by my brother (very handy app!!). You're right. In order to solve my problem, he lowered the android version required by the app from Android 7 to Android 6. Now I can install it! However, the app (which uses the Google API for routing, waypoints ...

Re: Setting up OSMand for Cycling

Thanks so much for this tutorial. You're very good at writing these!! That makes it a lot clearer. When I'm doing as you say, after entering a new waypoint, the new route on the little karoo screen is dezoomed automatically each time. This is rather annoying as I have to rezoom to define the locatio...

Connect to Bluetooth ear plugs

Hello, I've installed ''Bluetooth auto connect'' (via Apkpure) which enables to connect to my Bluetooth speakers... Works fine! Does anyone know whether it is also possible to connect to a Bluetooth earplug (in which there is a microphone as well) so that we could use the karoo as a phone (for those...

I managed to install Google Maps with the APK pure application which I installed before. It works but it cannot have access to my GPS. It requests the right to do so, but the 'allow' button list not cliquable. Thé 'deny' button works fine. What do I do wrong please? Edit: I found how to do it.. in t...

Re: Getting NovaLauncher back after system update

Thanks a lot for the information! Sounds nice (although the regions are quite expensive at 9€/region).

I suppose there is no need for the Google apps to be installed for using komoot?

Re: Getting NovaLauncher back after system update

Hi,

Just a question on komoot... Do you have the full functionality available, including navigation and can you buy maps of a region on the Karoo?

Thanks,

Paul
