Android on Wahoo

My Karoo has had a broken USB port for a few weeks again. Seems I didn't glue it back it with enough epoxy the last time - and this time I can't find anyone to fix it again as the PCB is too screwed up by now. I'll still give it a try myself when I get that SMD solder paste, but chances aren't good....

Re: Mtb trail road calculated directly on K2

It's not a quick remedy but medium-term the best thing to do would be to add the tracks to OSM. You can create an OSM account and then directly edit the map in your browser. The desktop editor JOSM is quite a bit more powerful but has a bit of a learning curve. Stuff will show up on the OSM website ...

Unless someone finds an exploitable big in the system software that would give you root, forget about it. HH have locked down the bootloader :evil:

Re: External battery

The Garmin external battery pack has a nice mount, but otherwise pretty $$ for an external battery. The issue it raises is how to cable an external power pack to address the battery life issue for the small group that needs loooong rides and for failing bats that are not replaceable. The USB/C port...

Re: Sram axs gears settings

Suppose that's working as designed. I remember when the added Di2 support, it was pretty big news; if there had been anything similar for SRAM, it would have been equally publicized. No idea what the big deal is with adding it, but AFAIK they haven't been pestered hard enough to do it yet.

Re: Rerouting

As far as I've seen, that's actually the way it usually works when rerouting - it finds a pretty good approximation of the quickest way. Maybe it got confused on your map, idk. It looks like the Karoo's internal routing algorithm is mainly optimized to be quick to find a solution. If you compare it ...

Re: Third-party apps resolution problem.

I don't think there is. Problem is, at 480x640 the Karoo's resolution is lower than anything sold as a smartphone in at least the last five years, so mostmany developers don't even test their apps at such low resolutions or make any efforts to make them work on devices that they think can only be an...

Re: Issues since the server went down

I haven't had any issues lately, apart from the fact that the last software is shit again regarding battery use while the last two or three were great. Sensors are fine.

Would be awesome if you could, but you can't. That's not how Android works in the first place - you can't simply embed one app's display in another one.

Re: K2 Down Payment Made

Just to note, the Karoo sells for more than $120 on Ebay. Might be a better idea than returning for a refund, although it is more of a hassle This. With the old model receiving most of the new features, I guess you could get closer to $200 if it's in good condition; and for anyone who sees cycling ...

I have a Karoo but the battery doesn't last but 2 - 3 hours max (without the screen on, using ANT vs BT, etc.) and i've calibrated the battery many times and have done everything customer support has suggested. The battery isn't replaceable so if you do buy one second had you might end up w a brick...

Re: K2 Down Payment Made

If I sell for $200, I have to give eBay $20. So I made all of $60 over trade-in to endure the hassle of eBay. No thanks. There are free alternatives to eBay and my hourly rate is not high enough to shun $60 tax free for half an hour's work. And if I sell it to someone, they'll just use it for a few...

Re: Cost to add SIM card

Internet is dirt cheap here in Sri Lanka, I literally pay 50¢ for over half a gigabyte on a prepaid card to use within three weeks. Nominally it's twice that, with the other half for nighttime use, plus 400-something MB if you use 4G 8-)

"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 cre...

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...
