    Second this; Im sick of having to decide if I want to be able to follow a route but have no data and potentially be lost in a field with no battery or if I just use my old garmin 500 for the sake of reliability. 

    Yesterday I gave up and bought the new Garmin 830. I dont even think that morally I can bring myself to sell the Karoo because it basically doesnt work so it remains an incredibly expensive paperweight.

    All these amazing features are great only if you can get the basics right. Having no data displayed on an amazing quality screen is just as useless as having no data displayed on a poor quality screen. Other than frustration in the knowledge that you spent $300 on nothing.

    Hi - I understand your frustrations, and I get upset with the quirks form time to time, but I do think that there is something extraordinarily wrong with your unit.  I am on a 1000 km ride with my Karoo and it is not perfect, but it does do all the basics well now and I sold my Garmin 820 a few months ago and haven't regretted it.  If you can, work with HH and get a replacement, it really will be great I think, and it is not at all bad already.  With respect!
