Release Date February 27, 2020

Additional improvements have been made to map styles based on feedback following our recent style updates


Bug Fixes:

Resolved an issue causing Strava uploads to fail to initiate in the event of a Karoo shut down

Strava uploads from Karoo now respect the user’s privacy settings

Resolved an issue causing the Karoo to sometimes show an incorrect Strava account type - e.g. a premium account could be shown as basic

Fixed an issue where live tracking could not be disabled and reenabled

Fixed an issue on the power meter detail page which was causing the page to “jump around” when interacting with the meter

Karoo Software Build Version: 1.119.766.3
Release Date March 11, 2020

Introductions and Enhancements:

Controls are now presented on the workout screen, allowing a rider to move forward to the next interval or back to the beginning of the current segment

Added support for workouts from TrainingPeaks that are driven by speed targets or heart rate threshold

Added controls that enable a rider to modify workout intensity (up/down) when doing a workout managed by a smart trainer

Workouts can now be started with the lap button

Refined and simplified the first boot setup on new Karoos and after factory resets


Bug Fixes:

Map scrolling is no longer possible when map is locked

Fixed an issue in which the thumbnail images for a workout sometimes indicated one more interval than included in the session

Fixed an issue causing failed imports of TrainingPeaks workouts that include a step with repeat count of one

Improvements to navigation, with the intention of removing the “Continue Ride…” message that displays instead of turn-by-turn directions on some routes. This fix addresses routes that start and end on the same road moving in the same direction (for example for a loop route)

Resolved an infrequent issue causing sensor data to not display in-ride

Dashboard POIs now retain the user’s name and description field data if they click away from the edit dialog after entering text in one of those fields

Karoo now deletes offline map and navigation data for regions that have been removed in Settings. Previously these regions were preserved on Karoo and continued to take up storage space
