Re: Hidden "feature" in 1.66.645.3...

Because they weren’t sure until they had field reports confirming it in quantity. That’s the problem with electronics and power measurements on chips. They’ve been bitten by over promising and under delivering. I’d give them credit for being cautious for a change. Doesn't make sense to announce it ...

Why shouldn’t they tout it?
I think that's Doug's point. Why didn't they put it in the changelog?

Re: Karoo Completely Dead After Reset

Oh dear, that doesn't sound good. I'm clutching at straws here, but have you tried just leaving it charging for a long time, like a few days, to see if that can bring it to life? I wonder if there's something wrong with the screen? It doesn't sound like a happy Karoo, and HH telling you that it's ou...

Re: Another "Kickstarter" computer...

Some interesting comments in there from DCR, agreed.

That "wireless charging only" thing screams "gimmick" to me. I'm sure they'll change their minds before final release (otherwise they're going to get slated).

Re: Continue Rcovered Ride

When I've had a ride recovered like that, I seem to remember that there's no way to continue it. Anyone know if they've changed that recently, or I'm remembering wrong? It is possible, however, to combine two parts of a ride into one by combining the Fit files from the Karoo, e.g. via something like...

Okay, I worked out that I needed to replace the "/%7B$z%7D/%7B$x%7D/%7B$y%7D" with "/{$z}/{$x}/{$y}" in the URL to make it work. Downloading now!
Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you meant that the URL in the earlier post wasn't working.

Re: Setting up OSMand for Cycling

If you're into scouting out new routes in unmapped territory, having satellite imagery available offline can be invaluable. You can use OSMand Map Creator (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OsmAndMapCreator) to get them onto your Karoo I have tried this, but the URL no longer works. Could you sha...

Re: Garmin Vs Karoo update

Your instructions are obviously geared to the Mac you own. Is there anything significantly different if using a PC? If so, is there someplace I can go to find PC specific instructions? There's almost nothing Mac-specific in there. The only thing is either adding the folder that adb is installed in ...

Re: Garmin Vs Karoo update

I really don't see how Garmin would find it "hard to respond" if Karoo can't even do the basics. It looks like bike profiles are coming shortly but that's been what? 18 months for an incredibly basic feature. At that rate of development it'll be years, if ever, that some of those other features are...

John, you seem to be wearing Karoo-tinted glasses. Before the "few things" that you mention, what about some of the features that are taken by granted by Garmin users, such as bike profiles, DI2 integration, live tracking and Strava live segments, to name but a few? I could add others such as notifi...

Re: Garmin Vs Karoo update

Not by a long long way. The Garmin 1030 has miles more functionality than Karoo. Trouble for HH is that now there's a Garmin 530 and 830, which have the same (slightly better, actually) functionality as the 1030 but at a competitive price with Karoo.

Re: hammerhead - Karoo-survey

The mock-up proposed new version was "taller" and "skinnier" -- and less wasted border -- effectively giving more display area, right? No. The display was smaller. They mentioned a smaller screen size when comparing the two. And measuring it roughly across the diagonal on my monitor, the proposed n...
