The Karoo software has been upgraded to share your live location with your family and friends.
Available from version: 1.111.726.3
- Your Karoo must have an active internet connection (cellular or tethered network connection).
- The other party must have the shared URL link and Hammerhead account.
On the Home screen, click on the "Settings" app.
Scroll to the bottom of the page
Select "Live Tracking"
Toggle it "On".
A URL with your live location will be sent to your email address linked to your Hammerhead account.
You can share this link with another person to track your ride. The location is updated every 30 seconds. The link recipient must have a Hammerhead Dashboard account to track your ride. This can be created for free without needing to own a Karoo.
This link remains valid for your Hammerhead Account until the Live tracking feature is turned off on your Karoo.
The old link expires as soon as you turn off the Live location feature on your Karoo.
A new unique link will be generated when you re-enable the feature under Settings.
Note: Wi-Fi will be turned off for battery savings when starting a ride and you may turn it back on (use the quick settings menu) after starting a ride.
