Compatibility with Garmin Remote?

Post by hummer »

I'm interested in the hammerhead. Can anyone tell me if it is compatible with Garmin remote ant+? I would like assign buttons to rotate screens, see the map quickly and zoom!!..

I don't recall seeing anyone saying they use one with Karoo, or any release notes from Hammerhead saying that they'd added support for it, so I strongly suspect that it doesn't work. Though I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

The list of things that don't work for me coming from Garmin starts to be very big. And I think that having compatibility with di2 and other groups, it would be very easy to add.

You given that feedback to Hammerhead? They have a big list and the more people interested in something the higher on their list it will be. Pity that they don't make the list public and allow voting on it...

Odd, since apparently the Di2 can communicate with the Karoo.
They use the E-tube system over BT

? The Garmin is ANT+. What communication protocol does it use and is it proprietary or open source?
