    My GSC-10 has worked flawlessly with my Garmin Edge for years and continues to do so, even running side by side with the Karoo.  However, while the Karoo will display cadence with this sensor connected, it will not show speed or unpause when moving.  Magnet has been checked and verified that the GSC-10 is "seeing" the wheel (speed) magnet.  Which leads me to wonder:

    1) What is the coding issue in the Karoo's app that is causing it to not start recording when movement is detected.  After all, at its heart, the Karoo is a GPS device so even with a wheel speed sensor, if it's not getting a signal from the wheel speed sensor, it should default over to GPS measurements for time & distance to calculate speed (and un-pause itself!!!).

    2) Why doesn't the Karoo allow using the GSC-10 for cadence only.  An option to use or not use one or the other sensor on a multi-sensor sending unit should be available on the Karoo.

    Just my 2 cents worth.  There are a lot of GSC-10s out there in the wild working just fine with other GPS units so "buy a new sensor" doesn't seem like a reasonable response.
