Hello, I have changed my Edge 820 for another unit in warranty, with the previous 820 the flare RT was automatically turned on when starting the edge 820, but now it does not turn on, I have to do it manually. I have the Bontrager Light Control installed as usual, even if it does not turn on automatically. It only turns off when edge 820 is turned off.

Keeps disconnecting from network and turning my lights off - not good.

My garmin edge 1000 can't find the flare r Light when i search the device
21. března 2018 | Verze 1.1.1
When I turn my Garmin 820 on, it turns on the light network, however it turns on the Flare RT flashing and the Ion 700 solid. I ride during daylight and want it flashing all the time. I can select it on the Bontrager App screen and change it to flashing, but it would be easier to just turn the light on, and it comes on flashing automatically. Am I doing something wrong?

The Edge 820 light network settings control how the lights turn on. Go into those, and make sure you are set to either Auto or Hi Vis. In Auto, the Edge will use ambient light to control what mode the lights are in, and in Hi Vis it sets them to flashing all the time.
The light control app allows you to override what the light network puts the lights into. It does not have the ability to change the system settings for initial power on.

There should be an over-ride to the ambient light sensor. During daytime, I want to have the headlight "flashing" at all times, but if you go through a tree-covered area, it switches to solid mode, thinking it's "dark" and you need the light to see. It's in such conditions that I really want that light flashing! Plus it's a bigger drain on the battery.
So my ask would be to tie an automatic mode into the Garmin's built-in ability to know sunrise & sunset times. Thanks!

The 'auto' mode is controlled by Garmin, and reflects the settings you have for the light network. The other buttons are overrides to whatever the Edge has put the lights into. What you are describing is actually the intent of the light control. If auto is not doing what you want, you can quickly change to whatever mode you need, and then give control back to the Edge when you are done. Hope that helps.

What setup for using always the same mode, for example: All Day Flash, how do i setup the network light options and the light it self? By the way i have only one ant+ light .
Does the brake functionality works on Flare RT?
Can i lock the mode? As in Flare R only?

headlight is always in high-mode on timerstart or garmin is ractivated after break does not change mode before turn off in sleepstate, permanently low- or medium-mode is missing or automatically reactivate the last mode after break with garmin sleepstate, important on long tours to save batterypower.

Werkte erg goed op mijn Edge 1000.
Helaas niet compatibele met de Edge 1030!!!

You should be able to configure the auto mode, first off there is no documentation as to what auto mode even does. Secondly maybe I don't want my headlight in low or high mode and I want it in a flash mode depending on day or night. It would be great if you could set things like above X speed I want the mode to be HIGH LIGHTS, if I am below x speed set to day or night flash etc... people are going to want different settings here, ultimately I should be able to configure different profiles based on what I am doing too. If you don't want to provide such configuration let at least document what "auto" mode does for the headlight and tail light as I have both and I can't tell what it is trying to do. Lots of potential here, GIVE SOME UPDATES!

Auto is controlled by the Edge light network mode. Your options in the Edge setup are:
Auto - Ambient light controlled for day and night settings
HiVis - Puts the lights in flashing modes
Individual - The Edge does not automatically set the modes.
Your ideas are good, I would advise passing them along to Garmin. They control what the network modes do on the Edge.

It works well with my Bontrager Flare RT. However, I feel as though it is really better suited to being a Widget, rather than a data field. Data Field screens are precious, and there's no reason to have to scroll through this app when I rarely have to use it. I'd rather swipe down on my Edge 1000, swipe right or left and have the light controls available there.

I have 4 buttons. First is 'IND' which makes nothing for me. Then I can configure 2nd and 3rd buttons and the 4th is fixed to OFF.
So for example I can program 'Day Flash' and 'Night Flash' (which is great) but...why cant program the other 2 buttons? As the light has 5 modes (Day-DayFlash-Night-NightFlash-OFF) would be great to have 5 instead 4 buttons or at least be able to configure 'IND' as well.

Thank you for your review. I want to clear up the operation for you. The light control is intended to work with the automatic system on the Edge. The 'IND' says that your light network is set to Individual Mode. In this mode, the light control will only allow you to switch between the two programmed buttons and Off. If you switch your light network to be either AUTO or Hi-Vis, then you have the ability to use the two middle buttons as 'over-rides' to the system.
To change the light network, go to the sensor menu for lights, and change network mode.

This app works fine and the interface is simple, but it is annoying that you can not easily switch between ALL the modes the light has available. You have to go into the menu and switch things. For example I'd like to be able to go from high medium low and flash but you only get two options and than you have to go into the settings to change the two options.

The user interface seems quite nice but does not function at all on my Edge 1000 (firmware 12.2). In addition to one Ion 800 headlight and two Flare RT taillights, I am also running Dura Ace Di2 9150 (newest groupset) with the EW-WU-111 D-Fly (also newest model D-Fly). The native Garmin light control works normally, albeit somewhat flakey and intermittent, but Bontrager's app continually displays "Forming Light Network" but it never does. It seems that third party apps and Garmin need more beta testing.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The 'forming light network' is actually coming from the Edge system itself, and the light control has to wait for that to finish before it can do anything. There have been a lot of updates in the last few months, so I would encourage you to try it again with the latest version of FW and build of the light control.

The app itself seems OK, but it does not play well (or not at all) with other 3rd party apps. I've tried 3 different gear ratio apps and the Garmin Edge crashes with every combination of a 3rd party app + the Bontrager app. Trek/Bontrager: Any chance of fixing this?

Pienso como Franges. Dado que la mayoría de usuarios tenemos una sola luz, se podría configurar para que en el caso de solo detecte una, toda la pantalla este dedicada a ella, y así poner todos los modos para elegir

muy buena !! estaria bien una app para el rada garmin varia!!

Very cool app !

Set any data screen size to 1, then change the field to the app. It works perfectly!

je voudrais savoir comment fonctionne le systeme decelaration automatique
21. ledna 2017 | Verze 1.0.3
Esta bien, pero si solo tienes la luz delantera o la trasera, no debería aparecer en pantalla la que no tienes y así habría sitio para todas las configuraciones en pantalla

great app for great lights!

While there's not much wrong with a Transmitr remote, saving some grams by controlling lights from the Garmin is nice. Data field controls all Ion or RT together. For example I have 2 of each. Toggling option for Ion affects both front lights, same for RTs in the rear. One button and both front or rear lights switch modes. You can set which 2 pattern/brightness options you want available besides the unchangeable auto and off buttons. Battery status of each light is always on at top of display field. It takes up an entire screen, but the layout crams plenty of options and battery info without appearing too busy or cluttered and the separation between buttons is good.

Perfekt. So soll es sein!
