As you are aware there have been a number disconnections mentioned on the forum. I believe i may be able to point you in the way of resolving this but obviously it would be great if Garmin could amend…

If it is connected as a light you will see what looks like a car head light icon in the list of sensors and will see a message "Forming light network" when you power the Edge on with the radar active.…
I have the Edge 530 paired with RTL510 and it disconnects constantly on rides! I thought it had fallen off at one point with those crappy o-rings they supply to hold a $200. Light! I am getting really frustrated that I can’t trust it to work on busy roads/night riding. Not sure what the fix is???
I've been using the Garmin Varia radar for nearly a year now with my 520+ and all of the sudden it has started disconnecting during a ride multiple times. It sounds crazy but the common theme seems to be bumps or rough pavement that vibrates the bike.
The thing is, I ride the same roads most all the time and it has become increasingly worse all the sudden. I've learned to rely on this thing for safety so it is extremely inconvenient.
After another ride with many disconnects yesterday I am convinced that something has drastically changed with my radar light. It is clear that bumps cause the disconnects and even causes one of the 3 lights modes to change as if you were pushing the button.
I've also noticed that turning the light off after a ride has changed. Sounds crazy but it's more difficult to find the sweet spot to get it to turn off.
I have the same problem, using Varia RTL 510 and Fenix 6x sapphire. It worked well for the two first weeks, now real nightmare. I’ve updated sw on both and no improvement but rather getting worse. Difficult to find when it turns on and off, connects and disconnects randomly, sometimes just keeps on signaling in a row one by one no existing cars, no more confirmation on the screen of Fenix when I disconnect Varia at the end of ride. For 200 $ device really sad and CRITICAL PROBLEM...instead of improving security it’s distracting with malfunctioning and bringing more danger ....any solution dear Garmin?
you're not alone. I habe exactly the same problems with my RTL 510. It startet about 3 months ago.
- Sudden disconnections especially on bumps
- Problems to shut the device off. Sometimes it switches on automatically after I've switched it off.
I'm so glad to here that I'm not alone.
