    That’s right.
    I may have missed something but zwift with Karoo 2 doesn’t work at all

    The Karoo doesn’t work well even in Indoor mode.
    It goes into sleep ... autopose ... etc ... No way to do an analysis with home trainer

    We can set a profile as 'indoors' but I don't see much benefit to it, other than no 'map screen' preloaded, and GPS is turned off.
    Not sure when, but quite a while back I logged a ticket for having SLS for Zwift - this would be fantastic and would put the K2 very far ahead of the competition. As far as I know, no other head-unit can do this.

    Previously, we could side-load the Companion App onto the Karoo but mine seemed to have lost functionality quite some time ago.

    Hi Mikolaj,

    Whenever anyone plans to do an indoor ride, we have a dedicated indoor ride profile for them.
    If needed one can create their own indoor profile. This is how it is done: Creating a new profile.

    Once the indoor profile is selected it automatically disables the GPS. Which will help in not recording the speed and distance through the in-build sensors in Karoo 2.

    Note:  When you are connecting your smart trainer with Karoo 2. Make sure you  connect the TrainerID and not the PowerID.
    Once your work out is over and you upload the ride to Strava, it auto detects the ride as indoor since the GPS data is not recorded and the same gets saved to your activities

    Hey Summit,
    I am afraid you are wrong. I am using the dedicated indoor type of profile, yes GPS is disabled. 

    Still:
    1) Karoo records speed data, which are empty
    2) Karoo uploads the ride to strava (and suunto) as normal cycling activity... Irrelevant if I choose a ride, workout or trainer type during the complete ride phase

    Here is how Karoo uploads my ride: https://www.strava.com/activities/7983170324
    and the very same ride uploaded by samsung which has the proper "VIRTUAL Ride" type of activity https://www.strava.com/activities/7987712118

    I can send you the fit/gpx files.

    When uploading to Suunto it also chooses Cycling but here at least one can change it manually to Hall/Indoor Cycling type of activity. (though technically it is also an integration bug).

    I am not using a smart trainer - just a simple spinning bike with my HRM and cadence sensors.
