Re: Battery won't charge anymore

Hey hallo and greeting from the Netherlands at first! :) I'm having a battey issue with my Karoo. The device says that its charging, but the percentage isn't rising. In fact it keeps dropping when the device is turned on. The strange thing is that I turned on the device yesterday after it wasn't co...

"Go Home" workaround

I'm not sure why free on-device routing still isn't available because the rerouting engine is definitely fast enough to handle even bigger distances. I suppose some will have figured it out already, but in case someone needs it, here's an easy workaround for a "get me home" function: I created a tin...

Re: Request: "Upcoming Elevation Graph" for "off-route" course

Unlikely to happen. The Karoo would have to have no only map data, but also elevation data to pull this off. So full topographic maps. That and the processing power potentially needed to keep calculating that on the fly is probably a non-starter. A reminder that this is a user forum. If you have sp...

Re: Suggestions for Bluetooth speakers/headphones

I used Anker SoundBuds before until they developed an issue and sound too effing awful even for TBT instructions. They're cheap, waterproof and have OK battery life; they're in-ear but if you use the smallest rubber bits ( and have bigger ear canals of course) they still stay in well and don't block...

Re: Uk Map update

I never use the satellite view on the HH dash so I didn't notice right away: there are simply no overlay ways on that view, but when you switch to Cycling View, the streets are pretty much all there so the routing should be fine. If there's a routing problem, it's not one of outdated maps. You could...

Re: Moving from Garmin to Karoo

Did you find Osmand to be reliable? You mean stability-wise or regarding maps? It's not flawless but pretty damn good. I've seen it crash maybe once every couple of months of daily use. Even though the integrated navigation has been making good progress recently (I just forgot my headphones today s...

Re: Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

Sounds like an APKpure problem. I just updated Osmand via F-Droid this morning, so I don't think HH changed anything about the OS that would block such updates. What with the launcher showing sideloaded apps for a few months now they seem to have turned rather more sideloader-friendly.

:oops: That's definitely a good reason I totally forgot about. I can imagine that can make some roads much less scary for you.
But then the lack of an audible warning from the Karoo is not a problem anyway ;)

Re: Garmin Varia Radar Support

I don't get the idea of this radar. I mean, I have ears, right? If traffic is so heavy my sense of sound direction isn't enough, the radar would be alerting all over the place anyway, whereas if I'm on a lonely country road with a vehicle passing by every couple of minutes, I can hear them. Above li...

Re: Moving from Garmin to Karoo

There a quite a few Android apps for live tracking that you can sideload; I've tried with Osmand only so far. Regarding custom data fields you're out of luck though, such a thing isn't possible right now. It wouldn't be hard I guess, as long as all you do is munge existing sensor data, but I suppose...

Re: There is now offline routing on Karoo.

I just tried it this morning, seems it's still a ways off from real offline route creation although the hardest bits should be done. What it can do is that you long-press any point on the map and then click the little cyclist icon to be routed there, but the route disappears once you close the bar t...

Re: Use Karoo as a hotspot?

I haven't tried but as the OS infrastructure is all there, a third-party hotspot app should be perfectly able to set this up even though it's missing from the settings. I don't have my Karoo at hand and I don't remember what app it was exactly but for quite a few settings I've been successful with "...

Re: Hidden "feature" in 1.66.645.3...

Strangely enough, last week's update was the first one ever that gave me any battery weirdness. None of the bugs people reported ever affected me, and now I had a ride where I started at 80%, it was down to 50% relatively quickly and then turned off. After I switched back on, it came up with 25% and...

Re: ATG Release 1.54.624.3

In my mind, the Karoo should be able to enable/disable sensors automatically based on a profile. I guess I'm assuming that there are battery gains to be made if the radios aren't constantly searching for sensors that will never be attached? I do this manually right now. What other use does the bike...
