OBSOLETE STICKY POSTS - Popular Karoo Feature Requests

The stickies haven't been updated in a very long time so it's hard to say how much of them is accurate, almost everything in "Popular Karoo Feature Requests" is obsolete and the linked pages don't exist.

These stickies should be maintained, unstuck or deleted.

My 2 cents worth.

Re: Routing issues

I got a reply from HH. No, it doesn't work... However, if you wish to do navigation by creating a route on the Karoo (offline route creation) or search by address then it's not added right now as we are working on it currently. It depends on whether by "create a route' you mean you want to navigate...

Re: Routing issues

I don't have connectivity at all so my so far limited experience says everything's fine except I'm unsure what " can you create a new route mid-ride to go to a specified address if you have neither wifi nor cellular connectivity? " means, is that as a waypoint or a new destination. You can definitel...

Re: Noob questions

Not true, unless something changed. Your grade on a climb will only show if you're following a pre-planned route. I did test today without a pre-planned route. The grade is showing. Maybe we talking about different things? :roll: I mean the percent of the climb up/down. I believe that if you have a...

Re: Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

Hammerhead should upgrade to a newer version of Android or less and less 3rd party apps will work as time goes on.

Re: Sideloaded Apps Not Updating

Someone with the problem should probably create a ticket and get the issue on the developer's radar.

Re: Deny Allow

You haven't said if the allow button looks normal or what happens if you click it. It may be that another previously installed app s drawing over the screen and Android's security is preventing you from clicking it. Have you tried going to the app's settings and doing it that way?

Re: How to install third-party apps on your Karoo

Just in case you don't realise there may be multiple pages of icons. The extra icons for the apps you add will be on the last page ("hidden" if you didn't know this).

Re: Live tracking data requirements

That would be a suck it and see, and any guestimate would let us say be for an hour of riding and you haven't said how much riding you do. I'd expect the data usage to be trivial. I'm going to try to use an Android phone hotspot but for whatever reason, the Karoo won't connect to it (first of many d...

I tried using apkpure and the amazon app store, but it doesn't run.
Can't tell what "doesn't run" means without information. What happens when you click on the Kamoot icon?

From memory it's a different account, just use the same credentials. Lots of companies stupidly do this.

the Polk Boom Bit might be an option for you.
It's not water resistant so you'd need to be careful.

Does anybody have any suggestions for a good Bluetooth speaker or headphones to use with the Karoo.
I haven't used it with the Karoo yet, but it was good for Google Maps : JBL CLIP 3 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker
It clips on with an integrated metal carabiner.

I have taken advantage of the Black Friday offer from Hammerhead. Nice discount and the website proclaims delivery with 24-48 hours.

Re: Are these instructions up to date

I think the only change is that those apps are now visible via the stock Karoo launcher. I assume that this means there's less need for 3rd party launchers now. I can confirm that there is no need for a 3rd party launcher although it would probably be better to have one. The icons appear in a long ...

So the source (https://www.openstreetmap.org/) has the updates? Then I agree something is wrong.
