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>

What’s New

Version 1.5</p><p>- Added support for Edge 830, EdgeExplore and Edge 1030 Bontrager</p><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>

It works also with Cycliq Fly6 CE for light on/off/mode. Due to Garmin Edge (830) isn't possibile to not start Fly6 when starting recording or the Garmin itself, but then you can operate perfectly on light via data page and known its status.

Ciao ,sicuramente ho un problema io visto che non riesco a fare funzionare l'app in quando mi dice "No network" e nonostante sia andato sul manuale sia del varia e sia del mio edge 1030 e aver abilitato tutte le connessioni fatto le ricerche dei dispositivi e collegati il radar funziona se installo app VR Battery mi da lo stato della carica ma in tutti i modi non riesco ad attivare la funzione dell'app tail light Field ,ti chiedo aiuto per capire dove sicuramente sbaglio.ho visto anche tutorial e letto recensioni e non sono sicuramente l'unico con questo problema addirittura ad un utente davi aiuto dicendo di creare una rete light con il Device se no l'app non svolgeva la sua funzionario ciao ho provato ma nulla ti chiedo aiuto, grazie

Very useful. In a future upgrade, when the light is switched off on the Varia RTL, would it be possible to have the light switching automatically on when a vehicle is detected by the radar and then back to off ? Maximum visibility while saving battery. Thanks !

I am afraid it does not work on an Edge Explore (firmware 4.60). Edge Explore doesn't recognize an LightNetwork?

Excellent. Great addition to my Garmin Edge activity profile screens for use with the Varia Radar / Light (RTL510)

Hi, very useful this app. Can I change the intensity of the light? It is very difficult for the ones that are behind me. Thanks.

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
