    Hi Paul - Sorry for the delay in resolution of the SRM power meters compatibility. These are a bit tricky to work on for development but the software team is committed to get this resolved. This is being worked on right now for the compatibility of CTF PMs and should be out by next couple of update.

    How about getting ANT+ support for Stages PMs?  Any ETA on that?

    John, I use my Karoo with Stages connected by ANT all the time.

    Or is there some "ANT" vs. "ANT+" distinction here?

    Thanks!

    Both of mine have lots and lots of dropouts on ANT+ (Stages Gen3 single sided on two bikes).  HH advised me to run it only in BT and that it was being worked on.  As such, I was wondering if they had a date for that being ready.

    @Greg - what version are your Stages PM's?  Gen2?  Gen3?  Single or double sided?  Wondering if there is a difference.

    Oh -- I thought that you thought that Stages was 100% unsupported via ANT+.

    I find that my Stages Gen 3 will sometimes disconnect under ANT+, and I have to fuss with sensors settings to get it picked up again.

    So, yes! Buggy -- but it's there. And I love having the zero reset feature in the Karoo now!

    I understand that the next update is meant to address sensor issues, no?

    Dunno. Going to find out Thursday. I thought the next update was going to have display formatting changes.

    Hey Greg and John - We still have issues on the stages that needs to be resolved. There are other PMs under this category as well such as 4iiii and Power2max.

    Do we have an anticipated date for the Stages fix?

    Hey John, I wish I could have provided a concrete time line on the fix, but please be assured the team continues to work on the ANT+ compatibility and the reliability of the sensor.

    You guys need to hire up some devs with kernel dev experience, and experience working with integrating devices via ANT+. It is obvious you guys have a bunch of app devs that are just learning how to do this sort of thing. They need a mentor with the right kind of experience.

    @Reginald - We have separate team members who work on Karoo apps, ANT+ and Kernel. I can assure you that the right people with their valuable experiences are working on it.

    Just discovered that the Karoo now reads my SRM power meter and is pretty close to what my PC8 head is reading. 

    It will not presently read cadence and was wondering if this something still being worked on.
