    Hi All,

    We’ve fixed the issue where the Radar car icons were not displaying the correct color.

    Thank you!

    agree to the comments regarding the new user interface. I'm under 50, but suffer from slight ametropia and I was content with the user interface as it was. The new one appears a unnecessarily squeezed to me, moving closer to Garmin 540. Feels a bit like wasted display space. Could just be a matter of taste.

    Hi Galeb,

    The issue with the Radar is a known one after the release and should be fixed in the next update.

    @Ali "Should be fixed in the next update." Surely you meant, "Will most definitely be fixed ..."

    Hi Steve, that's correct. The car icon is switching between white and black unexpectedly and will be fixed in the next update.

    Constructively giving my input that I also do not like the UI changes.  I looked to make sure I was not able to REVERT or NOW, CHANGE certain aspects of the UI, giving us more choices...but it seems that this is the new DEFAULT and ONLY look.  It does seem like a very strange choice in my opinion.  I've always felt like Hammerhead has always had a good UI design and direction, this one is not IMO.  Either revert back, or give us an option to USE the old UI as an alternative/setting, if this one is loved/enjoyed by others.  It's always hard to have everyone agree on one thing :)

    If after all the comments (even DC Rainmaker has made an article), karoo does not reconsider giving us the option of having the previous theme, or evolving the current one with proposed solutions... they have definitely lost me as a client forever, and I have just I bought 2 units of karoo for me and my wife, but I don't care, I'll get rid of them.

    Hi @Toni, may I ask what you're thinking of getting?

    @Lee I'm actually coming from a Garmin 1040, and I'm hoping Hammerhead rectifies and listens to or option users. It was already difficult for me to make the screen jump from 3.5" to 3.2" (I'm 47 years old with presbyopia), and this new field design doesn't help at all. At Garmin we have the IQ #DIY plugin where I could create my interface to my liking, fields, sizes, everything. Karoo wins in navigation, he was very happy until the last update to be honest.

    I cannot remember what it looked like before the update... Is there any before/after comparison?

    I have to say the update looks ok but will have to try it out on the road. 

    If I were hammerhead I would have a few different "Themes" available to toggle between in settings which could give different viewing options (Bubbles/Boxes/Plain)

    From the known bugs: „Car icons on the Radar lane switch between white and Black instead of showing white all the time: No Known workaround yet. We will be fixing this issue in one of the upcoming updates.“

    Please don’t go for white on yellow due to visibility reasons with direct sunlight. The contrast between white and yellow isn’t that great.
