I want to love this, but I can't quite get it figured out. Under app info it says it can control multiple headlights/taillights - I have two taillights, a flare rt and a varia RTL515. I can get it setup to control one or the other, but not both. The configurator is of limited help because it can only set up 1 headlight, and 1 taillight, but not two taillights. How do I make this work? What am I missing?

Bike Lights Control supports multiple taillights by grouping them into one virtual light, but as you have two different taillights, such approach won't work well. For your case a better approach would be to have two Bike Lights Control widgets installed where each would control one taillight. Unfortunately for now, only Smart Bike Lights data field supports this approach (check Please let me know whether such approach would work for you (either by using "Contract Developer" or by posting on Garmin forum) so that I can upload another Bike Lights Control widget on the store.

Funziona molto bene, grazie! Venu Sq... Set di luci Bontrager Ion 200 RT/Flare RT

7 mai 2022 | Version 0.9.0

Funciona muy bien con luces Bontrager ION PRO y FLARE RT con Garmin EDGE 830. Muchas gracias.

It shows numbers like 1 2 and 3 instead of modes for the light.

In order to display the correct text, you need to configure the widget by using the Lights Configurator. Please check the description on how to setup the widget or check the following "how to use" guide:

Excellent piece of software!!! Special thanks to developer for his dedication in solving problem with Fenix 5.

It works perfectly. Incredible. On my bike: Bontrager Ion 200 front light, and Garmin Varia RTL510 rear light. Magnificent and perfect widget

This deserves better reviews. I've tried many widgets and data fields to display/control my various Varia biking gear, and this is by far the best of the bunch. It's not perfect (slightly cumbersome to navigate, and I'd like to be able to custom-name the various light-states), but it works and is the only non-data-field I haven't deleted from my Fenix6. Garmin should have provided an app like this instead of forcing us to jump through like 10 menus.

Thanks for the review and I do apologize for a late reply. You can name each light mode by using the Lights Configurator (by changing the button names): In case you have any suggestion on how to improve the navigation, let us know on the following Garmin thread:

Works great on my edge 830. Nice little widget

The app doesn't work on my Vivoactive HR, it only shows the message "no network" :(

There seems to be a firmware bug on the Vivoactive HR that prevents the widget to work properly. Unfortunately there is nothing that I can do to fix that, so I removed the support for it.

It won’t stop connecting to my watch no matter what I do I don’t want it to connect to my watch. Just a bad idea all around not everything needs to connect to each other!!!

Réponse du développeur

I don't really understand what do you mean by "It won’t stop connecting to my watch", can you explain how do you see that the widget is trying to connect to the watch? The widget itself doesn't try to establish any connections, it uses the Garmin API to control the paired ANT+ lights. Please use the "Contact Developer" option or post on the following Garmin thread: in case you are willing to explain the issue in more details.

Does very little on a 530. Battery status is all it shows and not very good at that!

Réponse du développeur

Thanks for the fair criticism, this widget is basically a stripped down version of "Smart Bike Lights" data field and for devices like Edge 530, doesn't make much sense having this installed instead. Based on that, I will probably remove the support for devices where it adds little to no value.

Thanks a lot This widget offers all the features I was missing for managing my lights : - separate battery level - light mode management for each light And the online configurator is a bright also. This is an amazing piece of software !
