When paired with a compatible Garmin Varia device¹, the Varia app has the tools you need to ride with confidence. Using the Varia app, you can:

- Be alerted right on your phone when approaching vehicles are within 140 meters behind your bicycle.
- View color-coded alerts based on surrounding traffic: Green means you’re all clear, yellow means a vehicle is approaching, and red means a vehicle is coming at you quickly and you should take caution.
- Receive tone and vibration alerts for approaching vehicles even when you’re not looking at your phone.

With a compatible Garmin Varia Rearview Radar Camera, you can also:

- Set the camera in the best position for capturing videos and photos.
- Record videos or take photos while riding with a simple button press on your phone.
- Automatically record videos of incidents and save the video footage with the Incident Recording feature.
- Overlay speed, time, date and GPS details on photos and videos.
- Save, delete or download videos and photos to your phone.

Easy to Use
Pairing your Garmin Varia device with the app is quick and easy. Once you set it up, the Varia app will automatically recognize your device.

Even if you already have a Varia device paired with a compatible Garmin device or head unit, the Varia app provides additional awareness and peace of mind while riding.

¹ Compatible devices are the Varia RVR315 Rearview Radar, Varia RTL515 Radar Tail Light and Varia RCT715 Rearview Radar Camera.

I like the device and app works as advertised. I would love to control the light via the app or have the light off while radar is on or vice versa.

Permet de rouler en restant plus vigilant sur la route devant nous. C’est un accessoire qui amène un plus grand plaisir à pédaler et avec une facilité d’utilisation et puis précision radar déconcertante. Tout comme mon casque, je ne sortirai jamais sans mon Varia RTL 150. ,

Too Quiet

The warning sounds are too quiet on my iPhone 6S. I don’t hear them when riding. I do hear them when stopped at the roadside when there is no wind noise. But they are still quiet, and my phone speaker volume is turned up to max.
Garmin should allow you to use alert tones from your device. I have a number available that are much much louder than the one supplied with the app.
