GARMIN VARIA RADAR
The latest 2.1 Firmware update brings car-sensing Garmin Varia Radar (sold separately) compatibility to Dash M50 and L50. With increasingly busy roads and distracted drivers, the combination of Dash and Radar acts like eyes in the back of your head, delivering critical information about cars approaching from behind with enough advanced warning to allow the rider to make smart decisions, or take evasive action if necessary.
GAUGE RISKS AT A GLANCE
Dash will notify you when cars are approaching from behind, how many, how fast they’re going and where they are relative to you. A blue car in a yellow strip means there’s a car back. As it gets close to your position, the strip turns red. If the car is traveling 20mph+ faster than your current speed, the car icon will also be displayed in red. Know more. Worry less.
CUSTOMIZED RADAR NOTIFICATIONS
Set up your Dash Radar experience to deliver audible warnings, an overlay that lights up the whole display or simply a visual strip indicator on the left or the right side of your screen. Radar can be as obtrusive or as subtle as you want.
When your Dash and Radar doesn’t sense any cars behind, you’ll get a green strip which disappears after a moment to allow an unobstructed view of your Dash data. You won’t see it again until the next car approaches.
