Tail Light Field


Easily turn off and on your ANT+ tail light while riding.</p><p></p><p>With the Edge devices the tail light is always on or controlled automatically, but sometimes it would be handy to be able to turn it off manually (for example when we have riders behind us or to save battery when biking off road) and then back on when it is necessary (when back on the asphalt for example).</p><p>Even with the Varia RTL Radar Tail Light sometimes it is desirable to turn the rear light off, leaving the radar fully operational.</p>


Version 1.4</p><p>- Ever lost your rear light? The field now stores the status of the light in the activity .fit file and it's viewable on Garmin Connect. Three values are stored: 2 (light is on), 1 (light is off) and 0 (light is not present). In case you discover your light is lost, review the ride on Garmin Connect to determine the exact position it has been lost (consider the light will be 20/30 meters far from the point it has been registered as missing).</p>

Eine sehrgute App, das Varia RTL 500 läßt sich Perfekt damit ein und aus Schalten. Wünsche mir das gleiche für die Garmin Varia ut 800 .

Malgré dernière mise à jour de l'application, ne fonctionne toujours pas avec mon Garmin edge 820. Reste bloqué sur "no network". Version du firmware de mon Varia est 3.80

La idea es muy buena! Pero a los pocos minutos salta un mensaje que pone algo así como "no network" y deja de funcionar en un Garmin 1030. Apago enciendo y vuelve a salir, pero al poco vuelve a pasar lo mismo, no encuentro cual es el problema

Hello any change to do the same for the front light, the override to start activity with lights off it's really perfect.

Really love the simplicity and effectiveness of ths data field that works very well with the Edge 1030 and the rear Radar Varia RTL 500. Many thanks for the work that's gone into producing it. I have the Varia UT800 front light also. Is there any way of connecting the two, through the data field with a slight modification maybe so that the front light can switch on and off with the rear light simultaneously. That would be awesome.

Edge 1030 Turns the light off, but It will only turn back on randomly. I’ve tried double tapping, long hold, and just tapping it. Great concept, and a five star rating if it worked.

Unfortunately I do not own a 1030 for testing, but other users confirm it works. Maybe you could try adjusting the screen sensitivity

Works great with firmware 3.40.

Confirm. Not working after updating RTL to 3.6.

With the application all right, the problem is with the Varia Radar software - firmware 3.6 Varia radar is not working properly with Edge 1000 v14.1 - manual selection of light mode (shutdown / continuous / flashing selection) is faulty. Go back to 3.4 and everything works fine.

I have a Varia tail light paired with a Garmin Edge 1000 - this never actually worked and I suspect it was the cause of all my sensors being disabled. I thought it was a one time thing, but each time I turn on my Edge, I had to go back and check to see that each sensor was still enabled. Don't need this hassle. Removed the app.

Hi DisplayName, it is highly unlikely that adding a field can disable all sensors in your Edge (impossible I'd say). Check that you have a properly formed light network to ensure the field works.

It works great with Edge1000. I would appreciate very much your great app.

Works great with my Edge 1000...most useful app I've used on the connect IQ store. Kudos to the developers

Datenfeld wird zwar eingeblendet, aber es nimmt keine Verbindung zu meinem Radarlicht auf. Soweit so gut kann ja passieren, Aber der Support reagiert nicht auf die Anfrage, dann gibt´s halt nur 1 Sternchen, würd ja gern null geben.

I am sorry it does not work for you. Please understand I just share a personal development with other users that might benefit, as such I can not provide support in German. If you would be so kind to write in English I might be able to help.

No se conecta con Edge 820, siempre aparece la cruz roja.

Good apps. IT lacks the control in individual mode (flash).

Odpověď vývojáře

Thanks for your review. The lack of control in individual mode is by design but we are considering the development of another datafield that could be used to switch mode to flashing.

30. března 2017 | Verze 1.1

Exactly what I was looking for for quite some time. Easily switch off the light of Varia Radar when I'm commuting on a bike path, save battery life and switch it on again when back on a regular road. Little datafield but great for everyday usage! Super!

Best datafield ever! Makes the tail light useable!

Applicazione must have! Dove i tecnici Garmin non erano arrivati c'ha pensato Camillo. Bravo bravo e ancora bravo
