Old Software Version - 1.184.978.12

Post by Steve »

Karoo Software Build Version: 1.184.978.12
Release Date 28 January, 2021



RIDE SUMMARY MAP

We’ve added an interactive map of your whole ride to the Ride Summary. Zoom in and pan around to review the details, or simply admire the accomplishment of a good ride finished strong.



IMPROVED RIDE ENDING

We’ve improved the way you end your rides, whether you use the touchscreen or the hardware buttons. You’ll never accidentally end a ride again.



POWER BALANCE DATA FIELDS

We’ve added 3s, 5s, 10s, 30s, Average, and Lap Average data fields for Left/Right power balance. (These require a power meter that supports power balance.)



SIMPLIFIED BEEPER ALERTS

We’ve simplified the Karoo 2’s beeper alerts for Radar to keep you safe without confusing or overwhelming you.



BUTTON-ONLY NAVIGATION

We’ve added the ability to select Rides and Workouts entirely via hardware buttons.



Bug Fixes

- We’ve improved our Total Ascent calculation to better account for changes in elevation. This will particularly help when your ride includes some climbing at low speeds (e.g. mountain biking, etc.).
- [Karoo 2 only] We’ve sped up the shutdown process on Karoo 2. No more waiting minutes for the screen to turn all the way off.
- [Karoo 2 only] We’ve adjusted the way the “pause” and “lap” buttons behave when the screen is in the process of turning off and on, to reduce the likelihood of accidentally pausing or lapping when you don’t intend to.


Profiles Related Fixes

- We fixed a problem that would cause Karoo to become stuck on a single data page until the ride was ended, regardless of the profile selected.
- We fixed a problem that prevented certain profiles from being deleted.


Sensor Related Fixes

- We fixed a problem that could prevent Karoo from responding quickly to Di2 inputs (e.g a shift of a gear, a press of a hood button, etc.).
- We fixed a problem that could prevent Karoo from accepting data from connected speed sensors. In these scenarios, the sensor was connected properly (which could be verified in the sensors app), but Speed would remain blank in-ride.
- We fixed a problem with certain power meters that, when connected over Bluetooth, prevented L/R Power Balance from working. We also fixed an issue where cadence data could be intermittently dropped, even as the sensor stayed connected.
We fixed an issue that could cause SRM brand power meters to calculate power inaccurately.
- We fixed an issue that was preventing Enabling/Disabling a sensor to take effect if the sensor detail page was left too quickly afterward.


Data Field Related Fixes

- Adjusted the sample data shown for vertical speed in the page profile application when setting up a new page with a vertical speed field.


Dashboard Software

- We’ve added two new Partner Integrations: Komoot and Xert! Upload your rides to both services, either right after the ride from Karoo or later from Dashboard.
- We’ve made two fixes related to GPX files: the first prevented GPX files from uploading to Dashboard on mobile devices, and the second caused GPX files to download from Firefox without the .gpx extension.
- We’ve made two fixes related to Route Sharing: the first led some shared routes to incur "Route Unavailable" errors, and the second prevented route links from opening if you weren’t signed in to Dashboard ahead of clicking the link.

Karoo Software Build Version: 1.187.987
Release Date 11 February, 2021



IMPROVED NAVIGATION GUIDANCE

We’ve improved our navigation guidance when following a route outside of known roads. The instruction to “Follow Map” has been replaced with more detailed guidance for these sections of imported routes.



UPDATED MAP AREAS

We’ve updated our maps to include the Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey, etc.). (A factory reset is required to make these available.)



KAROO 2 BUTTON FUNCTIONS

[Karoo 2 only] We’ve updated the in-ride button functions on Karoo 2 so that the same button that starts the ride also pauses the ride and resumes the ride. This makes the Karoo 2 easier to learn how to use, and consistent with the usage of Karoo 1.

Because this is a change to such a fundamental function, we are also turning every device’s Key Button Icons back on to make sure everyone can see this change. You can still turn your Key Button Icons off in Settings if you would like



PHONE DISCONNECT ALERTS

[Karoo 2 only] Karoo 2 will now alert you if your phone disconnects. The alert can be swiped away, or it will clear if your phone reconnects.



SCREEN OFF FUNCTION

[Karoo 2 only] We’ve added the ability to turn Karoo’s screen off from the Quick Actions menu (for use while riding) and the Power menu (for use when not riding). This makes it easier to learn how to use the Karoo, as well as prevents accidentally pausing a recording when you want to turn off the screen in-ride.



Bug Fixes

- We’ve fixed an issue that was preventing some rides from syncing to Dashboard.
- [Karoo 2 only] We’ve fixed an issue that caused the Karoo screen to freeze for a short time after it was turned back on. This led to data appearing to drop out as part of turning the screen on, even though nothing had disconnected.


Dashboard Software

- We’ve added Workouts to the Dashboard. Now, you can sync and view your TrainingPeaks workouts on Dashboard, just like on Karoo.
- We’ve added the ability to rename a ride on Dashboard.
- We’ve fixed an issue with Live Tracking that was preventing the “Last Updated” time from working correctly.
- We’ve fixed an issue that prevented users from viewing a Live Tracking link if they weren’t logged in ahead of clicking the link. Now, users who aren’t logged in to Dashboard are prompted to do so when they follow a Live Tracking link.
- We’ve made a number of other small refinements and fixes to the Dashboard.

Karoo Software Build Version: 1.189.994
Release Date 25 February, 2021



IMPROVED UPCOMING ELEVATION

We’ve added upcoming elevation when navigating to a Pin or Point of Interest. Route to Home from Quick Actions, tap on any POI mid-ride, or long-press to navigate anywhere and you’ll be able to see a full-resolution elevation graph in the Upcoming Elevation data field.


TOTAL ASCENT CALCULATION

We’ve continued to refine the Total Ascent calculation to better match other platforms.


KAROO 1 BUTTON GRAPHICS

[Karoo 1 only] We’ve repositioned all button graphics on Karoo 1 to align correctly with the physical buttons.


Bug Fixes:

- Fixed a rare syncing issue between Karoo and Dashboard.
- Fixed an issue that could cause short intervals in planned workouts to be “missed” by FE-C trainers. This led to the trainer not changing target wattage until the next interval.
- [Karoo 2 only] Fixed an issue that prevented Karoo 2 from connecting to wifi on particular routers.


Android Companion App (1.5.0):

- Fixed issues that could crash the Android companion app.


Dashboard Software:

- Fixed an issue preventing the import from Google Maps of routes with particular characters in the URL.
- Fixed an issue that disabled the Upload Route By URL button after it had been used once.
