Varia RCT 716 Radar Camera Rear Light - StVZO approved - black/universal
Item number: 88247

The Varia RCT716 by Garmin is an all-in-one radar, camera and StVZO-approved rear light

The Garmin Varia RCT716 is a radar with an integrated dashcam and rear light with StVZO approval, which increases your safety in road traffic. The camera records what happens behind you, and you can view and transfer saved recordings using the Varia app. Equipped with automatic accident detection, the unit automatically saves video recordings before, during and after accidents. The radar alerts you to vehicles approaching from behind. To use the radar function, a paired device is required, such as a Garmin Edge 1030 or a smartphone equipped with the Varia app. Through the device, the radar triggers visual and audible signals to let you know how close the vehicles are and if they are approaching at a dangerous speed. The bright rear light also provides you with good visibility.
