I am using the Karoo as a mountainbiker for registering my rides. Navigation using routes is rarely used as I like to ride freely around in "deserted" and unknown areas. The map is crucial in this and the Karoo with its big screen and the OSM map is really appreciated!
But, I am missing some functionality that my old Garmin Edge 810 provides:
The option for routes and/or activities to always show on the map. Like is avaiable on the Garmin Edge (810).
I tend to look for tracks of rides by locals to find interesting locations to take a long in my ride. In my Garmin Edge 810 I could upload the tracks and enable the option "show always on map". During my ride all the tracks that are enabled became visible on the map when the map area covers the track(s).I use this option to provide guidance during my ride.
To check if I somehow missed the option, I asked the Belgian and Dutch Karoo users on the Dutch language Karoo usergroup Facebook page if this functionality is available. The answer was no and it appeared more users would like this option as I was opted to asked for this functionality on the Hammerhead Karoo support page.
Reading back the message I guess the functionality is not only applicable to mountaintbikers, but I wrote it in that sense as I have no experience for other disciplines.
I hope that the Karoo users that think this functionality is valuable for them as well, will repsond in order get it on the Karoo feature list planning.
