Karoo Software Build Version: 1.5.1.3

Posted by Hammerhead . on



Introductions and Enhancements:

  • In-ride pause menu redesigned to reduce intrusiveness:
  • Auto-pause: background icon displayed; users can now scroll through pages
  • Manual pause: users now have the option to hide menu and scroll through pages
  • Various back-end improvements to sensor data stream intake, resulting in more accurate and reliable displaying, handling, and logging of all sensor data 
  • Better handling of grade and vertical speed data for faster response, greater accuracy, and reduction in erroneous drops to 0% or 0m/hr. 
  • Improvements for handling roundabouts and other turn instructions
  • Some left-hand traffic navigation prompts introduced (in beta)
  • Improved software protocol for recovery of ride data after unexpected crashes or freezes
  • Added a prompt for high battery drain with adaptive brightness on
  • Average Cadence value is no longer including zeros 
  • Lap screen now shows a more detailed summary that includes a snapshot of previous lap data
  • Various back-end improvements made that are laying a strong foundation for third-party apps and integrations in the future

Bug Fixes:

  • Addressed case where navigation instructions were not showing up on all data screens (still working on this but improvements made) for some users
  • Addressed Strava upload failures reported by some users
  • TSS (Training Stress Score) data field was incorrectly considering pause time
  • Ride path was not following rider on map when Karoo’s screen was not in-ride 
  • Eliminated data field freezing if/when a sensor is dropped

Known Issues Remaining:

  • We are still working on cases where mapping and some data fields can freeze in-ride
  • Average Speed and Cadence readouts sometimes erroneous
  • Offline map downloads failures still affecting some users (workarounds identified, but root cause/fix still being explored)
  • Accelerated battery depletion affecting some users after most recent update to 1.4.156.3. Updating to new version
  • Unwanted unit reboots are still occurring for some users. Potential causes have been identified and workarounds have been suggested as a stop-gap measure. We are working around the clock on this issue, as we recognize that it is immensely frustrating for those who experience it.
  • Dashboard/Karoo sync of both routes and activities occasionally failing for some users. We have a suggested workaround as a temporary fix while we investigate what specifically is causing this. Backend third-party server host issues are suspected.
