Still strange re-routing...

    One possibility could be simply due to a difference in map data on the unit vs. whatever was used for planning the route, the Karoo might think your planned route is not valid and therefore can’t use it for the reroute even if it will follow it as long as you stay on it.

    (Why it does the reroute in the first place is a good question, but if it’s an open space, it’s easy enough to be far enough from the route line to be considered off route.)

    Mark, I have created a ticket on your behalf requesting route details from you. We will have to report this to our developers to find the root cause and possible fix. Thanks!

    I reported this years ago, and it was "fixed" (except it never was) and I keep suffering from it in the latest software release as per last week.Here, I was riding along a route, stopped for a second and laid my bike on the ground. The K2 thought I was going off route, and when I continued, it had generated a new route despite the fact that I was already following the original one.

    The ‘reroute function’ has always been a mess, it never worked since I bought the Karoo 3 years ago. I wish you could disable this function.

    In my opinion, it was a lot less of a mess three years ago. Far from perfect, but at least it picked somewhat reasonable routes rather than a combination of complex U-turns or dodgy singletrack (with “prefer asphalt” on) to bring you back to the nearest point on the planned route.

    With the current version, all I can do is to ignore it. (Unfortunately having automap+navigation cues on also means I can’t use the map either much of the time when a reroute is active.)
