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.

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 and Varia™ RTL515 Radar Tail Light.

Doesn’t Work With RTL510

Too bad this doesn’t work with the RTL510. I just got my 510 and while I’m waiting for my Edge 520+ to arrive (another week +), this app would have been a great way to get using the radar unit. Can’t really rate it fairly but it looks like it might be cool.
