Installing Komoot 10.x fails

Post by tjdomsalla »

Hi,

since Komoot is packed into an XAPK package, the Karoo is not able to install it anymore. Everything is fine with the old 9.13.1 version that was provided as simple APK file.

Did anybody install a current version of Komoot on the Karoo already?

Cheers, TJ

I'd never heard of it so a quick google came up with this link that should help you solve it:

Ever since Komoot switched to an xapk file from an apk file, I have been unable to install it. I have APKPure side loaded and that is what I used to first install Komoot. Since the article says to use APKPure to install xapk files, and that’s what I am trying to use (to no avail), I’m not sure what to do. I can get the file to download, but when I clicking “install”, it only leads to “installation failed”.

It looks like I am now stuck with the native Hammerhead routing app. The sort of good news is that’s it 1000% better than it was then when I purchased my Karoo. That being said, I’d love to find a way to get Komoot back.

This is exactly the issue! Thanks, Steve. And thanks to dbraeis for the link. My own Google search failed to find this.

APK versions work fine. XAPK versions don't work at all.

... since a short time it's possible to update Komoot to Version 10.
... it seems that there are two different installation versions from Komoot.
... with my Karoo I can upgrade to V 10.10.7 (235900) - APK-file
... with my Android 7 tablet I can go to V 10.11.11 - XAPK-file
I don't know who provides the APK-file - perhaps APKPure uses an converter ?
