    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Garmon Varia Radar Safer Riding Fitting this product was a breeze and linking it to my Garmon Edge 810 required a software update via a PC I am really impressed with how accurately the Varia detects vehicles, which includes motorcycles. The alert mechanism is a beep then little white dots on the Edge display. I am now able to navigate pot holes without worrying as much about traffic, though I will always check my six. Product needs to have a good view of road but can still fit a small bag under seat Highly recommended for safer Road cycling. Great service and price from Halford

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't leave home for a ride without it i have had this for over a year and next to biking shorts is the best assessory i have. It usually picks up cars about twice the distance i can hear them . most important it picks up ones i have not heard. For example in a headwind and going downhill when the engine noise is zero. As noted by other reviewers it does not report cars that have settled into a steady pace behind you. So do not assume they have turned off. You still have to look before moving out. however i always check the radar before looking as i often wonder a bit when i turn my head. So 99% of the time i can pick my moment to look safely . battery lasts about 7 hours or so. Note it does reduce the battery time of the receiver, in my case a 520. i think that is because it puts the backlight on the screen to add to the warning visibility, so don't go out on very long ride on a part charged 520. 100% charge normal life of 16hrs goes down to about 10hrs. Now the price has dropped to £99 its a no brainer. plus if you are in british cycling you get 10% off at Halfords so get some one to buy you one for Christmas!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but an excellent contribution to cycle safety Very easy to set up with my Garmin Edge 810. Used twice now. Good display on the GPS screen. Picks up MOST vehicles- the only exception seems to be occasionally vehicles that 'sit on your tail'- the vehicle has to be travelling faster than the bike to be picked up by the radar. I don't see this as a great problem since such vehicles should not be a significant danger (and usually would have been picked up on approach). Halfords very competitive on price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great aid to safety The light works really well in conjunction with my Garmin Edge 520. It really helps when riding into a head wind which seems to block out car noise from behind. Easy to use although the rider is still responsible for their own safety but it helps. It is relatively expensive but quantifying the value of ones safety is difficult so it may not be that expensive after all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mr powell Bought this following recommendations from reviews, absolutely brilliant piece of kit for country lanes and open road, not so good in heavy town traffic but should be wide awake there anyway. Biggest pain the cost, but what cost do you put on safety, works well with Edge1000 and 25, also my vivo smart watch. Highly recommend this item. Only other thing to say read the manual as to the way the Edge series turns it on and off !.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excelent at a Price Works like a charm. It picks up cars approaching from the rear before I can see them in my mirror. Used with a Garmin Edge Explore 1000.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra help for the darker nights This is a brilliant piece of hit that gives you the heads up especially when cycling in the winter. Easy to connect with your Garmin 520'and beeps when there's vehicles behind that you may not hear due to wind. Bit pricey. Would only pay £100

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Safety first I bought this as with all sensible cyclists, I use my ears to listen for cars, (Those cyclists who wear headphones and listen to music are plain crackers), but sometimes when it is windy you can't always hear the traffic. This radar gives you the added visual warning. I bought it when on offer for £100, which is still quite expensive, but safety comes first.
