All is well with the Karoo but my radar disconnects randomly. Updated software on radar and Karoo and fully changed. Disconnected twice today on 50 mile ride. Have to toggle off and on the sensors and starts working again, anyone else had this issue? Thanks
I have had the problem happen three times in about 3 months. Today, I did a 31-mile ride and noticed that the bar stayed white when I was riding through my town during the last mile. I love my radar, but I have a mirror, and I know it is dangerous to depend too much on the radar. I used a Garmin 830 for several months after I bought the radar and before I bought the Karoo and that never happened. I hope it will be fixed.
Never rely on the radar 100% as it is just a tool. I will go a few rides with no issues then it will disconnect, quick reset and good for a few more rides. Did happen with Garmin as well but would reconnect on its own. I am sure it will get figured out.
When I started, the radar would cut off about once every 2-3 weeks which I didn't mind that much. Now, in the past few weeks, it is cutting off every few days. Today, it cut off, so I reset it. It then hung up again in the last mile. I will go back to the Garmin 830 for a week or two to see if it is the radar's fault. If it is not, and this does not stop, it will be a killer and I will have to return to Garmin even though I like Karoo much better because of its bright, large screen.
