Re: Radar Disconnects

I use the radar on every road ride. I have had a 100% success rate with no disconnects. I also have a Garmin 1030 and can report some differences I like and some I do not. I get a disconnect with a Wahoo Bolt 2-3 times a ride. I don't notice any with the karoo (could be that i dont notice them as t...

Re: Garmin Varia Radar Support

NOW is the time to get a varia for under £100 on amazon.
