    Gives confidence riding on country roads

    Gives reliable warning of vehicles approaching from behind, particularly useful when wind noise or other vehicle noise drowns out the noise of approaching vehicles. Awesome on country roads, giving the confidence to dodge bumps and potholes knowing there is nothing approaching behind. Effective range is not massive but still adequate warning for 100 km/h zones. Paired with Wahoo Roam works well, providing visual and aural warning - the latter always heard despite wind noise.. Paired to Fenix 6 also does the same but quieter so can be easily missed. Tail light daylight flash reacts to the vehicle detection to catch the attention of drivers. Tail light is quite narrow beam and bright, so optimised for highway use. Easily attached/detached as it uses the Garmin computer mount system - plenty of after-market solutions available and no need to muck about with rubber bands every time a charge is needed.

    Pros: Gives warning of vehicles approaching from behind, when you can't hear them
    Cons: Probably not best value in busy urban environments

    Worth the expense.

    In conjunction with a Rearviz mirror, this has been a great addition to my bike gear. It detects vehicles before I hear them. The display on the Varia App is great, on my Edge 530 it works but it doesn't look as good. It would be valuable for those who might like to ride on foggy days, you can detect vehicles before they may see you.

    Pros: It works.
    Cons: Garmin need to supply a saddle bag mount to fit the light clip

    Excellent device

    Held off buying for too long - works very effectively as a warning device and as a rear light.

    An excellent safety feature for cycling

    After swallowing the cost of the light, I bought it and have been absolutely thrilled with its performance. The pre warning of vehicles is very handy when doing fast descents, allowing relaxed cornering. Slow quiet electric cars no longer go undetected behind me. It is also handy showing number of cars that might be behind. I do distance riding in the country , the light (as is) does not fit with an under-seat tool bag. So a clamp was fabricated to fit the light above the tool bag. I have also used it on my mountain bike in the bush, and other stealth mountain bikers no longer go undetected when coming up behind me.

    Pros: the warning of cars behind me that I may not have heard( electric cars or wind noise on fast downhill
    Cons: 1.fitting the light above the tool bag required a seat clamp to be made. 2. Cost

    Like eyes in the back of your head

    Great product - has made me feel a lot safer on busy roads and open highways to have the additional warning of vehicles behind. Integrates well with my Karoo2 but I think is even better with Garmin computers. Best price on Johnny Appleseed, thanks!

    Pros: Saves turning to check for traffic unnecessarily, allows you to be more conscious of your road position
    Cons: Rubber band mount system makes me nervous, but has been secure this far
