    I thought T-Mobile SIM cards were what you used during development. What happened?

    Telstra card in Australia works fine, but you'll need to set the APN. Check what your phone uses and select the same one.

    Is freedompop in the UK compatible??

    I can't seem to get a data connection although there is a signal strength bar so clearly something has happened.

    I just picked up a verizon micro SIM card in the US and tried it in my Karoo.  Available networks that show up are Tmobile and ATT.  So it would appear the SIM card is recognized and interacts with the Karoo software.  However the CDMA piece is missing I think.  Any input from Hammerhead on when you might add this?  It was one of the reasons I bought this thing.  Thx

    Three sim works fine in the UK. No need to enter any APN settings, just loaded automatically.

    I've tested Telenor HU; Vodafone HU and T-mobile HU SIM Cards in Hungary. None of them worked at all. The "Cellular data" option in the Settings menu is disabled (grayed out), so I don't have the option to change the APN settings. It's like the SIM slot is not recognizing the SIM card at all. Can it be a hardware problem or that's normal, because of the carriers are not on the compatible service providers list?

    I would like to use my Karoo on both of my bikes but the wheel sizes are different. Since I can only apply the wheel calibration number for one bike does that mean that speed and distance will be off when using on my other bike?

    If you have a speed sensor on both bikes with different wheel sizes then yes I believe it will be off unless you adjust the wheel circumference setting for each time you swap over.

    One potential work around would be to only connect the wheel sensor on one bike and then use GPS only as the distance calculation for the other bike.

    Hi Anyone have any idea of a UK sim that will work in the Karoo while I'm traveling through France ?

    Yup. A three pay as you go is fine and uses you UK allowance no extra charge. In fact I think pretty much all UK Sims roam for free now. Three works straight out of the box. As does ee. Have used both. No setup required just make mobile data and roaming is switched on.

    Well its handy if you want to change route. Also I find that although you have maps and route stored it sometimes goes a bit weird if you reach the edge of what you have stored. With a Sim in it just updates on the fly and maps are completely stable. And of course your strava uploads are instantaneous. I prefer to run with a sim in all the time.

    You may have to manually entire the ID moble APN in your sim settings. It's "ID", no username or password. Or it may already be in the database or autoload from the sim. You've just got to give it a go. I've had a few different sims in mine from around the world and it's always been fine. https://www.idmobile.co.uk/help-and-advice/get-your-settings
