Fantastic widget just what you were looking for. I was already beginning to learn to code to do something similar. Thank you¡¡

31. oktober 2020 | Version v2.2

funzt sehr gut auf Fenix5s und edge 530. Vielleicht programmiert der author und noch ein Datenfeld welches den aktuellen Licht mode anzeigt ;-)

Perfect to control my RTL 510. Better than Garmin‘s default widget!

3. juli 2020 | Version v2.1

Hello OGDev, great widget. Would it be possible to turn on the light if a car is detected automatically for maybe 10 seconds and after that, turn off again? Or isnt there any trigger point?

The RadarLight widget use lightmodes which are defined from Garmin. Please ask Garmin for such a lightmode.

With the latest version the Fenix6X is finally supported! Really happy for this! Thank you very much for this great app!

I have a RTL515, I have installed this widget on my 935. It doesn't pick the Varia up. I have removed te Varia as a sensor, added it. Tried again. Still nothing.

please check if you have two sensors of varia radar: 1 radar sensor and 1 light sensor - you need the light sensor for RadarLight.

5. juni 2020 | Version v2.0

Funktioniert super mit meiner alten Fenix 5x+ auch mit dem neuen Varia RTL 516 (deutsche Version). Ich hoffe Du fügst noch die Fenix 6 zu den kompatiblen Geräten hinzu, dann kann ich es auch mit meiner Fenix 6xPS nutzen. Klasse Widget!

Die neue Version v2.1 mit Unterstützung der Fenix 6 Serie ist da!

Got it working on Edge530. I was having trouble at first. Then saw Rob's review. Removed radar on Sensors. Paired it again, purple light on RTL510, then went to Settings, found "Lights". Widget finally working

9. april 2020 | Version v2.0

Will not work with Edge 530 and will not uninstall. Shame really, had high hope's for this widget.

16. februar 2020 | Version v2.0

Ne fonctionne pas sur Garmin530

7. februar 2020 | Version v2.0

Sehr gut! first i had Problems, not able to start Light Network. Then I switched off Radar in Settings, searched again for Light in Connection Mode at Radar(purpleLED)& evoila.. Perfect Widget!!!

Absolutely fantastic for the varia

10. december 2019 | Version v2.0

How to access the wigets: While activity is running press the rigth lower key. now you see a simple watch. from here you can reach the widged like always via lower left buttons.

10. december 2019 | Version v2.0

Works as described on Descent MK1.

Same comment as MS when the light is switched off, it would be great to have the light switching on automatically when a car is detected but rather on the high/fast flashing mode set by default by Garmin. Maximum visibility while saving the battery. Thanks.

The RadarLight Widget only adresses the existing lightmodes of the Varia Radar. Please ask Garmin for such a lightmode.

Whilst connecting to pair my Varia RTL510 (latest update 3.50) with the Edge Explore (4.60) it only finds the radar, but no light network. I have the widget Radar Light installed and on, but it does not recognize any light network. Neither when running an activity. What's wrong?

Udviklerens svar
22. juni 2020, OGDev

Building up the light network is Garmin's work - not the work of Radar Light. If you have problems to build the light network normally the light sensor is not recogniced from the Garmin device - please ask Garmin in this case. Sometimes it helps to remove light and radar sensors from device, than search exclusive for light sensors and after success, search for the radar sensor.

Non funziona con garmin fenix 5 plus

22. september 2019 | Version v2.0

Please explain : 2. during your activity run call start the widgets How do you “run call start the widgets”? I have no idea how you can access widgets when is activity running

12. september 2019 | Version v2.0

Thank you very much for this app. It's just amazing. Would it be possible to add a feature, for when you're using it when the light is switched to off and just using the radar function. When a vehicle is detected, the light switches back on again (in the mode it was last used i.e. slow flashing light) and when the vehicle has pasted it reverts back to being off again? Thank you.

28. juni 2019 | Version v2.0

Thanks for providing this much needed functionality! It's unbelievable that Garmin refuses to provide this themselves when they claim the 935 supports the Varia RTL510.

Works great! Allows me to turn off the light on my RTL510 while keeping the radar operating thus extending battery life enormously. I can now finish my long rides with the radar still working.

version 2.0 let you select all availlable light modes of your RTL510 (if you want that). Also it shows the actual battery level of the Varia Radar.

Garmin released a new firmware at the radar of 3.70. Edge 520 can turn the light on and off. Unfortunately, it does not return to the original light mode.

with version v2.0 you can select your preferred lightmode.

24. juli 2017 | Version v1.1

no lightnetork. it certainly is connected and detects vehicles.

Udviklerens svar
24. juli 2017, OGDev

The Varia Radar has 2 sensors that must be connected to the fenix - the radar which detects vehicles and the backlight which build a light network. Please check if the backlight is also connected with the your fenix - maybe remove the radar from sensors and do a search for all sensors to find it again and also the light sensor (you will have 2 messages for finding new sensors).

Desværre, der er ingen statistikker endnu.
