Turn Garmin Varia RT511 light off, keep radar on

Post by tjdomsalla »

Hi,

on my Garmin I like the option to turn off the light of my Varia RT511 while keeping the radar active.
Now, with the days getting longer there is hardly need for keeping the light on. But I still want the radar show nearing traffic from behind. And keep the battery usage low.

Is there an option? Unfortunately, the standby mode on the Varia device also turns off the radar. So it is either everything on or everything off.

With best regards,
TJ
