new Hammerhead Karoo 2 – Leaks and first thoughts
Today’s leak is from none other than Mr Lance Armstrong. Love him or loathe him, he’s got a Hammerhead Karoo 2 and you haven’t. Neither have I for that matter. I’m not quite sure what he’s done to deserve one (actually I am, but that’s another story entirely).
The leak has also been confirmed by Hammerhead as follows
“Karoo 2 will be the ultimate high-performance head unit, fit for champions. We’re creating a device fully designed to perform at the highest levels of the sport, from both a hardware and software perspective.” – Nick Pelletier, Head of Product
Plus I knew about it a while ago, so. I’ll confirm it as well 😉 (hinted at here earlier) I’ve not got too much I can share with you at this stage but I asked the obvious question and the answer was ‘Yes’. Longstanding Hammerhead critics will probably guess the question.
The next obvious answer comes from the following image which either shows a much smaller device or a man with an infeasibly large hand. If you think Wahoo Elemnt BOLT or Edge 820 sizes then that will likely be right (IDK). The original Hammerhead is a large bikenav.
I’m sure that Hammerhead will be committed to developing and supporting the existing Android-based Hammerhead Karoo firmware
