Testing now begins on the Garmin Varia RTL515
I have been using a helmet mirror for decades. But now, after a few recent close 'surprises', I decided to add a Garmin Radar activated blinking - flashing rear light to the touring bike.
Maybe it is the increase traffic,
that RED flashing light is BRIGHT
I was seeing red spots for about 10 minutes !
Be careful of that.
As vehicles approached from the rear, I heard a alert and looked at the Garmin Computer and saw a YELLOW indicator on the left and right side of the display and the YELLOW turned RED and the vehicle got closer. When the vehicle pasted, the RED turned to GREEN indicating no trouble! I wish the alert sound was a bit louder, but perhaps I can adjust the sound. I found that the radar indicates a vehicle before I would normally be able to hear it or see it in my helmet mirror.
BUT with just 10 miles with the device, I believe it going to become a necessity!
