Garmin Varia RTL515, Cycling Rearview Radar, Visual and Audible Alerts for Vehicles Up to 153 Yards Away

My wife is a much more concerned? Cautious? No, it’s probably intelligent cyclist than I am. So naturally she’s more interested in what is going on behind her on the road than I am. Which is how I came across the GARMIN REARVIEW RADAR. The Garmin Varia provides visual as well as audible alerts for approaching vehicles. The Varia warns of vehicles up to 153 yards (140 meters) away. The smartphone app increases your awareness by providing graphics — plus tone and vibration alerts — indicating the position and speed of approaching cars. No more looking behind you or glancing at tiny, poorly located mirrors. When used with a compatible smartphone, Varia radar integrates with your favorite apps. Utilize Ride with GPS to overlay your maps with rearview radar alerts. Mounts easily on the seat post of almost any road-use bicycle.
