Re: Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

I'm assuming this is a Hammerhead problem and not an app problem?

Re: Deny Allow

The Deny and Allow look identical. They are just words, with no button like border. There is nothing covering the Allow button that would appear to affect its functionality. When I touch Allow, nothing happens. Period. There is no way to "X Out" of the window, so the only way to get it to close is t...

Deny Allow

Most sideloaded apps require you to allow them to access the Karoo. It's always a simple popup window with the choices of Deny or Allow. My Karoo will NEVER let me choose allow. It will always allow me to choose deny, which is the only way to close the window, since you must choose one. And I can't ...

Re: Installing Komoot 10.x fails

This is exactly the issue! Thanks, Steve. And thanks to dbraeis for the link. My own Google search failed to find this.

APK versions work fine. XAPK versions don't work at all.

Re: Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

This is perfect and EXACTLY what is happening. The minute an app goes to XAPK, the Karoo operating system can't handle it. Once I rolled back Komoot to the last APK version, it loaded instantly.

HUGE thanks to you for helping out on this. It's things like this that make this forum so valuable.

Re: Installing Komoot 10.x fails

Ever since Komoot switched to an xapk file from an apk file, I have been unable to install it. I have APKPure side loaded and that is what I used to first install Komoot. Since the article says to use APKPure to install xapk files, and that’s what I am trying to use (to no avail), I’m not sure what ...

Re: Handlebar Mounts

Mike,

I use the supplied Hammerhead mount on my road bike, and Bar Fly mounts on my gravel and mountain bikes. Not a single problem with either of them.

Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

Until recently, all of my sideloaded apps have updated flawlessly. But last week I open APKPure and noticed several available updates. The APKPure update worked great, leaving Komoot and Dropbox updates. When I press the "UPDATE" button for Komoot, it turns to a % download button and it shows severa...

Re: OsmAnd & Komoot Use

Thanks, John. Is their any reason to use OsmAnd if you have Komoot? I did my first ride today after sideloading and Komoot was absolutely outstanding! Far better than any experience I've had with my Karoo to date. The gang and I were on some of the most obscure gravel roads high up in the hills and ...

Re: OsmAnd & Komoot Use

Wow. That was easy. Went with #2 through my Komoot account. Almost instantly synced with my Karoo.

Off for a gravel ride with the gang. Could I actually have reliable TbT on my Karoo??? I’ll report back.

OsmAnd & Komoot Use

After following JohnJ80's instructions (thanks John) and a good bit of Internet sleuthing, I was able to sideload ADB,Nova Launcher, OsmAnd and Komoot after about an hour. The attached image is my non-HH screen. I can get both mapping apps to open, access the Karoo GPS and show my location. What I h...

Re: Garmin Vs Karoo update

I do not feel picked on at all, DT. In fact, I agree with you completely. I am at the point where I feel the only way to get the Karoo to work as advertised is to start sideloading. This is my last hope to get TBT to work reliably as HH seems incapable of doing so. I have a couple engineering degree...

Re: Garmin Vs Karoo update

John, I just re-read your instructions for sideloading. Good stuff. Given the above discussions, I think I'd like to give it a shot to give my Karoo a fair shake. Your instructions are obviously geared to the Mac you own. Is there anything significantly different if using a PC? If so, is there somep...

Re: Hmm.... Garmin 530

What Dobbel is saying is that the combination of buttons AND touchscreen is far more important that the device actually working as HH promised. So now when a new software update comes out, Dobbel has the distinct privilege of pushing a button OR tapping the screen to initiate an update that will alm...

Could this be true? A cycling computer that actually does turn-by-turn? All the time? That actually shows you the name of the road you are on? That comes with maps preloaded? A cycling computer that doesn't require you to be a sideloading guru to make it do what you thought it would do when you boug...

Re: TBT Returns

Thanks, John.

Regrettably, I have no Android app experience. Even the instructions posted seem to require a decent level of knowledge of sideloading apps. So while I would love to have OsmAnd on my Karoo, a bricked Karoo is even less helpful than a often mediocre, sometimes brilliant Karoo.

TBT Returns

After the last software update, my TBT vanished. This is far from a surprise, as HH software updates regularly mess up something that had been working fine. Nevertheless, it remains a major annoyance as the TBT is the main reason I purchased the Karoo. After mining through the HH support blog, I stu...

Re: ATG Release 1.33.582.3

Did a ride on Sunday and got the solid red bar with no TBT. My Karoo TBT was working just fine before the last software update. Go figure... The onscreen map was correct with a red line showing every turn spot on. Just no TBT or distance to next turn. The grade of climb data field toggled between "....
