... causing all offline routes to be queued until that's finished. :roll:


It's getting a little annoying.

Mine didn't, but then again on the previous release (1.11.392.3) my offline area did re-download causing all my routes to be queued. Which was a bit of a problem since it only did it right before I was heading off on a ride.

This behaviour seems to be inconsistent though, e.g. not everyone found the same on that previous release, and I'm not finding the same as you on this release.

I'm not surprised though, sadly. It seems to be yet another one of those "HH developers don't understand how their own device works" kind of things. That's certainly the impression that I got to the very vague answers to my support ticket when I had this problem.

I don't believe the doubled sample rate was ever noted to the ATG users. Or was ever in the previous notes? My Karoo is a unreliable paperweight right now and it's too heavy to race 'cross with. Now that that season is done (for me), I might start using it again, but only if New England weather cooperates for outdoor riding... or I move somewhere warm. :P

1.21.495.3 : I have to wait again for the Karoo to (re)download the offline maps and routes... :cry:

And the damn process is extraordinarily slow despite my 300 Mb/s fiber-optic internet connection... Exasperating :evil:

It's incredibly annoying when it does a forced re-download, particularly if you have lots of offline areas (or just a large one) and/or lots of offline routes. Once mine was fine straight after an upgrade, but just before going out for a club ride *then* it decided to re-download everything. And it's not easy to stop it once it gets started. It's a terrible design, like so many things on Karoo not properly thought through (or tested) for the consequences.
