Stable app releases /versions for sideloading on karoo 2

Post by Jan O.K. »

Dear Karoos,

I am quite new to using a karoo 2 (1.187.987.12). I found a lot of information about sideloading apps. For a lot of mentioned apps I have troubles finding a good release / version that runs stable and reliable on the karoo 2. For example I can't get Komoot and OSMAnd running stable. Komoot doesnt reroute and crashes, OSMAnd+ doesnt find the position even if it has the permission.

Could you please post the releases that you use and that run stable from you experience? I would be specifically interested in:
- OSMAnd
- Komoot
- Spotify

Or am I doing something wrong in general?
Also important: What chip architecture has the karoo 2? ARM7 or ARM8? -to find the good apk.

Best, Jan.
