Karoo back on track ?

Post by Erwin M » Sat May 18, 2019 4:11 pm

It looks that Karoo is going back in a positive direction. (Software Build Version: 1.42.600.3)
Because i have less problems. Tbt Works most of the time now.

I hope that they get the basics fast stable, so they can continue on the timeline.
Sometimes it was hard but i keep believing in this product.

It's more stable and a lot better but I don't think they have it nailed yet. Close, but not quite.

At any rate, they need to be adding features at a rapid pace now with no regressions. If they don't get this done this biking season, I think it's going to be grim for them.

The issue is the pace of development and the continued, "we broke something but we're not sure how" problems that require hotfixes and panic. They still don't seem to understand their own software and how the pieces interact. See the recent "bug" where returning to the launcher page from a ride deleted the route...

Yes, improving...buuuut I can't seem to get it to "survive" a 10+hour ride without losing sensors and, usually, at some point, locking up and forcing a reboot.

In the meantime I bought a little Lyzne computer to use for long/important rides, unfortunately. I still hope that the Karoo can reach baseline reliability of other brands.
