Re: Dashboard update - 1.0.012

Supposedly you can also now share a link to a route with another Karoo user. If either edits the route, changes appear for all who share it. I’ve tried this but can’t seem to make it work. Anyone else try this? *This* would actually be a cool feature for those that organize group rides or events th...

Battery Hotfix to ATG

Hello ATG Member, Your Karoo has just received an update to address the increased in-ride battery drain affecting many Karoo users. We want to make this fix available to the general public as soon as possible, so any immediate testing you’re able to do is greatly appreciated. We believe that battery...

Re: Bad news about battery drain...

I'm not really concerned with battery life right now. I don't ride for 3+ hours (particularly in winter). I posted about the battery to let folks know about the delay in the next release. What I *AM* concerned about is the data loss, lag, etc. combined with the battery issues and the continued appea...

Re: Bad news about battery drain...

I've finally asked for my aging Garmin 510 back from a friend who borrowed it. She's currently using her phone and didn't seem interested in figuring it out, so I'm getting it back this week. Not sure if I'll go back to double-recording or just put the Karoo on the shelf hoping beyond a reasonable h...

Bad news about battery drain...

The below means that anyone *not* in the ATG is going to wait at least 3 weeks for the battery "fix".

Re: Auto elevation calibration

Using the "raw" GPS number can't be worse than the situation I'm seeing on most rides, where I'm sitting ocean-side and seeing an "elevation" in Death Valley or higher than the highest point in a 30 mile radius. GPS fixes are X,Y *and* Z. It may not be accurate enough for flight navigation, but it's...

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: road.cc Karoo review

Compiled a not-comprehensive lists of things that would have caused a "good" reviewer to deduct points. These are probably not all of them. My snarky comments in parens. Review was also done -- or the screenshots were taken -- with a quite old version of the software. Note the changes to the pull-do...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

10w average power might be considered "significant" depending on your training and what you were doing. Might be the difference between zones you were trying to hit. Plus, the over 200W number always looks better. :)

Re: 345 Problems

My Karoo did settle down after it re-synced the offline areas and routes. Strange. It'll be a proper test tomorrow on a ride. Managed to get the Garmin to boot up, and then it was ok after a file system repair. I had this problem several updates back for no apparent reason. After some investigation...

Re: Karoo mount w randonneur bag?

Just reverse an "out front" mount and direct it over the stem. I do this when I run the Karoo on my CX bike (mostly for road riding) so it's not sticking out into the "danger zone" and because only the mount that came with the Karoo is long enough to use out-front due to the size and the quarter tur...

Frankly, I think their cadence is too fast to do that properly. We get an update on the Thursday before you do. Most people don't ride until the weekend.

We got a build last week and I posted a video (which I think I linked) to YouTube.
