1.21.495.3 : I have to wait again for the Karoo to (re)download the offline maps and routes... :cry:

And the damn process is extraordinarily slow despite my 300 Mb/s fiber-optic internet connection... Exasperating :evil:

... causing all offline routes to be queued until that's finished. :roll:


It's getting a little annoying.

Titaniumgeek Karoo review

https://titaniumgeek.com/hammerhead-karoo-gps-review-android-on-your-bike-computer/ As a product to buy today… in all honesty, apart from the screen, the Hammerhead Karoo is an “also ran” device. It doesn’t currently push the envelope. The vast list of features plan for Android updates is terrific;...

Re: Screen Protector - Now Available

The sheet is a little too short at the bottom of the screen when the hole is centered on the light sensor.

But in general, the quality is good and the application is easy.

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Yeah, I think they've mentioned in the update notes that they still don't have Stages fixed, even though Stages is probably the most common PM out there. I was actually amazed that they fixed power2max as quickly as they did. Generally speaking, the Karoo does not work properly with a majority of P...

Re: Any news of Update

Just downloaded and installed v1.5.19.3.

I'll give it a try tomorrow. I'm curious to see if there's any progress in powermeters management.

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

Vector 1 is ANT+ only and is unusable with the Karoo for the moment (numerous dropouts). Powertap G3 Hub works fairly good, with ANT+ or BTLE but there are still some dropouts. Powertap P1 pedals (dual-sided measurement version) do not work with BTLE (both pedals are paired but only one is taken int...

Re: My Karoo Test Journal

@dristotope : what type of powermeter and what kind of connection (ANT+ or BTLE) are you using ? I see in the "sensor list" topic that you have a "power2max Type S Meters (FSA Gossamer crankset / Rotor 3D+)" which is set to "not working". This question because using powermeters with the Karoo is my ...

Re: Any Garmin Vector 3S users?

The average power output on the Karoo and Fenix 3 was pretty much the same, but upon upload to Strava the Karoo-provided tracking had its power cut in half. On my Garmin Vector 1 pedals (dual sided, ANT+), file analysis shows that the cause is the very large number of dropouts. https://support.hamm...

Re: Any Garmin Vector 3S users?

2 another Karoo users report the same issue with the P1 pedals (dual-sided measurement, BTLE connection, both pedals paired but only one pedal taken into account for power measurement) on the Official HH forum. One of these two users specifies that it works with ANT+. Interesting since other power m...

Another problem with the quarter turn attachment : the little "tongue" locking the base plate in the correct position is broken.

Re: Sensor List

Some clarifications : The Powertap G3 hub powermeter delivers speed, cadence and power. It works quite well but not perfectly when it comes to power. As far as I'm concerned, the GSC10 is working fine (both speed and cadence). My HRM from Garmin is this one and also working fine : https://imgur.com/...

For my part : Garmin heart rate monitor chest strap (ANT+) : OK Garmin GSC10 speed+cadence (ANT+) : OK Garmin Vector 1 pedal powermeter (ANT+) : BAD, lot of dropouts, unusable data Powertap G3 hub powermeter (ANT+) : FAIR, some dropouts but data are usable.
