Thanks for the great app, have been using it since it came out on my 1030. Hoping there is a version for the 1040 as I've just upgraded!

Thank you for the feedback I am currently biking across the country and about 7 to 10 days from being home. As soon as I get home and have access to my computer I will update the app to make it work with the 1040. Was unfortunate timing as Garmin released the 1040 right before I left Otherwise I would have already made it compatible within a day or two of the release.

Love this app and the data it provides. Any thoughts on support for Edge 1040 that's just come out?

They released the 1040 right AFTER I. started biking across the country. I’m about 7-10 days from being done and will release an update compatible with the 1040 as soon as I get home. Also thank you for the feedback I have really enjoyed working with this app and seeing so many people get good usage out of it.

Despite the limitations of the radar hardware and Garmin software, this is a really nicely done app. The speed is sometimes not detected by the radar correctly but this isn't the apps fault. I'd love if Garmin would make a more accurate light but we'd probably not be able to afford it (yet). The developer probably has hundreds of hours if not more into this. And keeping with the time honored tradition of complaining about free stuff, can we set the label font color to black instead of light grey when the background is white? Most people I know with the radar light run this app now. Cool stuff, thanks!

I was satisfied with this app on my Tactix Delta. But now i have Fenix 7X. It will be available for this model too? Thx

Soll laut Entwickler auf der Forerunner 745 funktionieren. Daten werden angezeigt, eine Auswertung über Mybike Traffic ist nicht möglich. Daher wertlos für mich.

Please email me your .FIT file from the ride(s) that are not appearing on mybiketraffic.com, and I will look into what might be causing the problem. One thing to note: you must install the app AND add it as one of the data fields on your Garmin for the radar data to be recorded during your ride. I have updated the description to indicate this more clearly. My email address is [email protected] - thank you.

Thanks Brian for your patient explanation of the IQ platform limitations for the now legacy Edge-1000 device. I eventually decided for a Venu Sq as a Pulse-Ox and HRM sensor that does support the current IQ version and so works with MyBikeTraffic and a Varia Radar following phone and Radar pairing, and MBT download. So not too steep a hill to climb with significantly better data from VenuSq than a HRM sensor alone. Once again, thanks for your evidence based approach to road safety, which I now share with local Enforcement people & stakeholders to demonstrate why just having some Highway Code improvement is not enough to change attitudes (UK). Ride Safe..

Thank you Paul. I'm hoping this is a small step towards collecting enough data to have traffic engineers and city planners make changes. I'm also hoping if it catches some publicity that it will draw attention to the "speeding" epidemic that I believe is sweeping the world. Everybody is driving faster and faster and it would be nice to have the data to prove that to the "speeding" deniers. Even if the data mostly gets ignored, perhaps it could influence even just one speed limit change on one road somewhere in the world or a road redesign somewhere that leads to one less cyclist (or pedestrian) getting run over and killed, then it will have been worth all the effort. I'm working on two new features right now that should make the app a bit easier to use ... the first is automatic synching to the mybiketraffic website through the Garmin Health API so that users don't have to manually upload if they want to see all the car locations and car history (will require authorization through Garmin). The second is a connection to Strava (will require separate authorization through Strava) that will automatically add the car count info to the description plus a link to the corresponding ride on the mybiketraffic website. Both of these features will be opt-in because the user will have to authorize both the Connect IQ app and the Strava web connection, so if users are not interested in either of those features, it will continue to function the same way for them.

The app works as intended. I don't use the website so I cannot comment on that.
I did not find any documentation re: whether the reported speed matches the Garmin unit system (English/metric) or whether it is always mph.
The only issues I've had with the app are more related to importing in WKO - WKO does not pick up the speed units in the speed data fields and it doesn't import the @Radar_Ranges or @Radar_Speed fields at all but I suspect that's a WKO problem not a problem with this app. WKO does not read array fields other than HRV at present.

Thank you for your review. Regarding the speeds, I coded up the app to display speeds using the same units that you have your Garmin device set to (e.g., metric). It should show a small MPH or KPH next to it the speed field on the screen, but if you are using a watch those might be hidden by the curvature of the watch. You might try changing the location of the data field on your display. Also, you can use the Garmin Connect IQ phone app or Garmin Express to change the settings for the app to choose whether you want to display relative or absolute speed, but you cannot change the units (metric vs imperial) displayed unless you change it through settings for your entire Garmin unit.

Bardzo fajna sprawa!

This is a great data field. I have been using it almost everyday since down loading it at version 1.0. It gets better and better, and the latest "last speed" is a really great feature.
I have this on my main data screen for both my road and gravel cycling.
The "mytraffic.com" web site is also very good to use.
The only improvement would be if it could trigger a photon lazer at motor vehicles that come to close or are speeding.

Brilliant app -- adds a whole new dimension to ride data collection. The approach speed function is particularly awesome. Excellent work -- highly recommended!

Awesome addition to the 530!
18 Νοεμβρίου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.2
This thing is amazing. Its install and forget. And you get how many cars passed you and approach speeds.
Thumbs up to developer!

Thank you for this amazing IQ App!
12 Σεπτεμβρίου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.2
I’m incredibly sorry about your accident. I’ve had several near misses myself prior to using this app but it’s incredibly helpful for me to analyze the higher danger areas and times to avoid. Terrific program!
20 Αυγούστου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.2
This is an awesome addition to my 530. It gives me more information about the car approaching, specifically the approach speed. It’s good to be able to judge how worried I need to be based on speed differential. Thanks for the hard work on this!
15 Αυγούστου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.2
This app is awesome and works fine on Edge Explore 820

Works great on a Garmin 1030 plus. I have the data field set to only display approach speed. Thanks for making this available!

Wer ein Garmin Radar RTL 515 oder RTL 516 hat, hat deutlich mehr Auswertungen zur Verfügung. Man sieht wieviele Autos einen überholt haben und wie schnell diese absolut/relativ waren. Außerdem kann man auf der Fahrt sehen, wie schnell die Autos kommen/fahren. Danke!

Very nice app. Thank you for your hard work making this app!
1 Μαΐου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.1
Cool app. I’m sure the information can be useful to route planning apps like Komoot to provide cyclists information about how busy a route is, and how dangerous (based on approach speed of cars)

1. the page has an incorrect data import link. However, the import via the Import submenu always returns a message that there is no radar data in the data file - no matter what file format you import.
2. application overloads Edge 530 - without the application my 50 km route eats 10% battery. After installing the app, the battery consumption increased to 14-15%. That is 4 less routes on a single charge.
3 I reported a problem with the site, with importing data - no response. If you don't give a damn about your users, then you get such reviews - simple.
I didn't find any advantages of using this application - lack of possibility to import and display data on the website, excessive battery usage is a bit too high a price for having the number of cars that passed me - anyway, such information itself is useless.

Wow, it's amazing how somebody could write this for a completely free service being provided to the community. I am investigating the battery issue. Also, this is the first time I am hearing about the "incorrect data import link" and perhaps your increased battery usage is somehow related to your data files not showing radar data when imported. Please attach your .FIT file in a message to me. I use this on my Garmin 1030 with no noticeable decrease in battery life. Also, there is always going to be a trade-off between extra features on a device that consume CPU and battery life. What do you expect me to do about it?
29 Μαρτίου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.1
Absolutely amazing app, a must-have if you are commuting, it really does work quite well. Can you make it work to display car speed when the bike is stopped at 0 Speed?
7 Μαρτίου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.1
Great idea !, Thanks
Would it be possible to separate the monitored data into 3 independent fields in a future version?
I mean, Vehicle count in one field, realative velocity into another field and absolute velocity in a 3rd field ?
That way the users can display the fields in different screens, the fonts can be larger.
One more thing, can you measure the distance from the vehicles?
If so, can you change each circle that show on the screen representing a vehicle approaching the bike by the estimated distance to the bike ?
This would be great in Edge units with larger screeens, specially 1030 and 1030+.
27 Φεβρουαρίου 2021 | Έκδοση 2.2.1
Works perfectly and gives more information than standard system. I find it very helpful to see the speed of the vehicle approaching you from behind.
