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.

Hello, 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. -111 D-fly (also newest model D-Fly).

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

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

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

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.
