    a great safety device -works every time

    a great safety device -works every time. I was a bit concerned it might shake free of the mount ,but I have travelled some really rough dirt roads and it remained secure..I use it with my phone mounted on the handlebard but you could just as well rely on the audio alert if your phone was in your pocket

    Pros: easy to use and recharge
    Cons: a bit pricey

    Unexpectedly good

    Got this from seeing good reviews, but was still amazed how well it worked, and how well it integrates with my riding. It misses nothing essential, and it distinguishes very accurately multiple cars behind you, though it may "forget" something's following when they keep the same speed for a duration of time. If I'm being very picky, annoyingly, taller vehicles can set off the radar when you are riding on a separate bikeway alongside motorways etc. I had some initial issues setting it up, with a Garmin headlight UT800 and Garmin Edge 530; the light network would take a long time to connect or not connect at all. Ultimately, what worked for me was to remove all paired devices and add the headlight and taillight radar fresh. Now both lights (and radar) turn on automatically when I turn on the headunit.

    Pros: Sensitivity and precision is pretty good as well.
    Cons: Battery frequently requires recharging. Some issues setting up the unit.

    Awesome device

    Awesome product from Garmin. Feeling much safer knowing what’s coming behind me.(especially while riding along into the wind) Delivery from Johnny Appleseed was fast and prompt. Will definitely deal with them again.
