    Hi Robin, We definitely would love to see a possibility of more than 100 segments. One reason, this has not been the priority is, there aren't too many requests from the community. However, I would also like to inform you that this limit also applies to our competitors. So we do not have an immediate answer to it, as it requires investigation so we can prioritise. I have started a conversation with our product team and will update you here on the probability and a more definite anwer.

    One question that might help me would be, ideally how many segments would you like to see on the Karoo once starred.

    Thanks Ali, I currently have 205 starred segments in Strava so, if there has to be a limit then 300 would suit me.  I'd also be happy if you could download the first 100 by geographic proximity.  Can you comment on why Hammerhead can't just set it to say 1000?  Surely the device can handle it and if the vast majority of Karoo users have under 100 then it shouldn't represent a significant Strava API load?  E.g. does the number of segments downloaded impact the performance of the Karoo when searching for segment matches and/or calculating Live Segment displays?

    Robin, Thanks for letting me know of your requirements. As of now, it has been limited and couple of reason being Strava are very conservative with how much load we are allowed to place on their API because they support a lot of other head units doing the same thing. We also want to ensure everyone can use the Live Segment experience on Karoo, we have to enforce a cap at some value to distribute that API load across our growing user base.

    I have shared your requirements with the product team, and hopefully we will find some solution to your needs.

    I asked the same question when  live segments landed via ATG but wasn't really given a reason by it's limited to 100. I've reduced the number of segments I have starred but still have around 200. On a local 30km ride today only 2 segments popped up despite many more being shown on the map screen. I do like the live segments facility but it really doesn't work for me with the current limits.

    Not sure if you are looking for "me too" posts but I would also like to see this, it's a requirement for any device I would buy.
