Hamerhead Karoo

Post by Alexinthepeaks » Tue Dec 03, 2019 12:36 pm

The Hamerhead Karoo has a big discount on it at the moment (£196), so i have just bought one. Looks like a great unit, but quite large!

Anyone got experience of using one for Bikepacking / mtb type riding?

Good price. Where did you purchase it? Have a Garmin that never has worked with gpx files. Have heard good reviews on the Karoo. May be tempted!

I think that was a Black Friday price. I was tempted (for road riding, mainly) and it seems to have a lot going for it, especially at that price. However, the slew of negative comments from owners on the DC Rainmaker review stopped me from grabbing a possible bargain. Interested to hear how you get on.

I couldn’t find much about using it off-road and also haven’t quite got my head around how good it is at letting you create new routes or amend existing ones when away from WiFi. Those would be big pluses for me if it does them well.
