Cobra iRadar – Click above for image gallery

A Cobra radar detector has mated with the iPhone, and the Cobra iRadar is the result. When you pair your iPhone with the Cobra unit via Bluetooth you can control a host of displays and features, along with alerts for all radar and laser guns, speed and red light cameras, speed traps and dangerous intersections.

This is a bit of a change-up from the detector Cobra launched two months ago that came built-in with GPS (and Escort followed with its own GPS-enhanced product a month later). By pairing it with your iPhone, you get portability and a slimmer form factor for the Cobra unit. It's also cheaper: just $169.95 at the Cobra store. Take a look at it in the gallery of photos below.

      its cool to see some new advances and ideas recently in the radar detector market. there were very little changes to the radar detector for YEARS despite huge leaps forward in every other technology.

      that said, i will stick by my valentine one for a while longer. (crazy to think the V1 was first released nearly two decades ago in 1992, and it is still one of the best)

      Escort 9500i for me. It's served me well. I travel out of state a lot in the summer and that's when I primarily use it. Here in PA only State Troopers can use radar and I'm rarely on roads where they do speed enforcement so I don't even use it here.

      They're definitely a great tool if you know how to use them. But if you get one just so you can drive obnoxiously fast you're likely going to get pulled over anyway.

        I actually dumped my radar and though I still speed I have gotten less tickets.

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the whole point of posted speed limits is so that when my kids leave the house and get out on the road they won't be endangered by idiots racing down the street like they're on the Autobahn. May God watch over my children as well as the speed demons flying around like they've got somewhere to go. Jennifer at www.EightyEightPercent.com

      Hey, here's a novel way to avoid a speeding ticket! DON'T SPEED. And, while your driving, focus on the task at hand and not distractions like cell phones, eating, applying makeup, reading books, etc.

      $100-500 for a radar detector, obeying the law- free, seems like a no brainer. Remember they still have insant on pulse radar!

      What ever happened to just not speeding?? Works for me.

      The people that do 90 in a 55 are probably the same ones that feel THEY are so important that they must text and dial their cell phones.

      What kind of ethics are people teaching todays drivers when they boast about speeding. I for one would love to have more red light cameras. I coun atleast a dozen cars each day that know the light cycles and blatantly run red lights. Again I guess they are too important to follow the laws us commoners do.

      • 4 Years Ago

      • 4 Years Ago

      Just don't speed. What's the big hurry? We are all going to end up in the same place anyway at some point. D E A D !

      I've got the perfect solution to avoiding a speeding ticket. Don't speed. Better to get there alive. Leave a little early. No one wants to get hit because you want to arrive at work acting like you're at Indy. Following the speed limit, leaving a little early so you're not rushing you won't have to waste money on any kind of radar detector and you won't worry about cameras. The only people that get ticked here in the U.S. are those who speed and hope not to get caught and the spineless people who take the cameras down are doing a disservice.

      Of course once you get hit by a speeder then you'll be shouting bloody murder over "why didn't anyone do anything!" and of course the speeders complain about getting caught. They have no consideration. They won't pay for damages they inflict on other drivers and then moan when their insurance goes up.

      Don't speed, don't drive drunk, don't drive distracted. If you want to ignore that the next place you'll be going will be the morgue and it won't be you doing the driving.
