Although radar detectors and the iPhone don't really seem to have anything in common, at least at a first sight, Cobra, one of the best-known names in this field, has just proved that the two concepts can be related in quite an easy manner, namely via their Cobra iRadar Detection System, that consists of a state-of-the-art Cobra radar detector and the Cobra iRadar App for iPhone.
The system uses Bluetooth wireless technology to connect the iPhone to the detector, and the iPhone Multi-Touch display to control the detector's settings.
As a result, the Cobra iRadar Detection System enables motorists to view, hear and log alerts for radar/laser guns as well as upcoming speed/red light cameras and other potential hazards.
The Cobra iRadar detector is a sleek, compact and powerful unit that detects all radar and laser guns
on the market and alerts motorists to upcoming threats from all directions with its 360 degree protection.
Its large, crisp speaker provides clear and precise warnings while its escalating audio alerts let you know the distance to any threat and the detector unit also works as a standalone detector when not paired to the app, ensuring that it is in radar/laser gun detection mode at all times.
The Cobra iRadar App includes at no cost Cobra's exclusive AURA Camera and Driving Hazard Database, which enables drivers to receive alerts for speed and red light camera locations
as well as other driving hazards.
Utilizing GPS technology in iPhone, the iRadar app alerts the driver to upcoming speed and red light cameras, known speed traps and dangerous intersections.
The Cobra iRadar Detection System has a manufacturer suggested retail price of $169.95, which is not that high a price for such a solution, all things considered.
