    Hi all, good news. 

    We will have this icon fixed for left to right roundabouts in the March 30th release. 
    I know its a small one and a little slow but we have been tackling bugs in order of severity. 

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Tell me has yours got the sim card, if so what are you using so I can get my Karoo out on the road. Map looks good on screen but your right some error for us in the UK SA and Japan.

    Nope, no SIM card in mine. I downloaded the maps offline, and made the route available offline. Worked fine.

    OK, thanks for that I do have an old road route stored away must try that soon, if weather and roads are in fine tune with me.

    Just checked my maps , and downloaded maps and at all instances the Karoo negotiates round abouts correctly.

    @Guy I'm talking about the turn instructions, not the routing, which you can see in my screenshot (the icon at bottom left). You can't see this by checking maps because that won't show you the turn instructions until you ride, as far as I know.

    @Steve: +1 on this, had exactly the same issue and raised via feedback portal

    That's great news, thanks for the update, Laurence.

    Well done, that is a minor irritation, most folk are capable to know which way around they should go, it's like one of my routes here the main goes to a T junction with traffic lights but us local riders use the old lane that cut 1/4 mile out, we just ignorthe info from any GPS unit , it sorts it self out as we ride across the main at that point.

    @Steve, right understand, yes it's is a bit irritation but im sure HH will fix this.

    It would also be good if the roundabout symbol actually showed which turn to take, not defaulting to 3/4 of a circle.

    Well, we had the March 30th release and no fix for this yet. It's not in the known issues list but the behaviour is still the same, i.e. wrong. What's the status on this, HH guys?

    Also, please don't bother with the known issue list in the changelog if it's going to keep going the way it is, which is frankly nonsense. It has a tiny list compared to the much larger list of issues that are known to most of us here and is therefore completely misleading. Four known issues across everything Karoo and Dashboard - really? See https://karoousers.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=12 for a much more realistic list.

    Steve, 

    Thanks for the head's up. We are still digging through our navigation stack and animations to identify the right fix for this. We want to be sure we have the best implementation here. 

    As for known issues, I am working with Raveen on building a larger master list + workarounds.

    The classification of a "known issue" is a little nebulous. From a dev standpoint I could populate a list of many hundreds, almost endless since there is always room for improvement and tweaking. 

    I think your presented format will be the way we go for larger break-point issues. Likely updating on new releases.

    Just started using my Karoo in anger (UK user also) and found this exact same quirk. 

    Is the roundabout symbol on the Karoo just a static icon, or should we expect it to give visual indication of how far around the roundabout the required exit will be? 

    And for counties that drive on the Left-Hand side of the road, obviously, have it depicted in a clockwise direction.

    No, it's just another example of a promise of a 'fix' by HH that has amounted to absolute zero. Get used to it!
