Karoo 2 first experience
Hello, I bought my Karoo 2 two weeks ago and I have two rides only and my first opinion was ok. Then I had an issue with HR sensor on my Garmin Fenix 6 to show it. But we solved it fast with Hammerhead assistant - quite fast and really helpfull. But there is one more issue. Sometimes when I ride up to the hill, it doesn't show me the screen with the segments and the steepness. And sometimes it shows it even there is a flat landscape or the downhill ahead. So it is indicated as climbing. I experienced both situations during my rides at least 3 times. The highest hill (steep about 10 %) with no warning and few km later I go down the hill and the Karoo indicated it as hill to climb. Sometimes the profile of the hill does not correspond to the real situation, like the GPS is a bit shifted. Does anyone have any similar experience?
