- iPhone: Carv requires the iPhone 6 or newer to run, with a minimum of iOS 12 installed, though we recommend using the most up-to-date version of iOS.
- Android: Carv requires a minimum of Android 6.0 to run, and your phone must support Bluetooth 4.2. It is also recommended that you use a phone which has a barometer in order for Carv to function most effectively. Some Android devices need to have Battery Whitelist or App locking enabled when using Carv. These include some Huawei, OnePlus, Oppo, Realme, Samsung and Xiaomi models. Read more.
We have now tested over 50 of the most popular Android devices to assess their compatibility with Carv. View the results.
Please note, that we do not recommend using Carv with the Huawei P30 lite, Samsung Galaxy A5, Moto G8, Honor 8X or the Nokia 1 Plus. These models are unable to meet the demand required for transmitting ski data via Bluetooth.
We anticipate that using Carv with other low-end devices may cause similar issues.
- Other devices: Carv requires GPS service and a motion sensor in order to operate correctly. A barometer is also strongly recommended. Other devices which have these features should also be able to run Carv, but we do not guarantee compatibility with any devices other than those specified explicitly.
Whichever device you are using, ensure that you give the app permission to use GPS and that Bluetooth is switched on while using Carv.
