Cobra SL3 Helps You Avoid Speed Cameras

cobrasl3

By Chris Scott Barr

Radar detectors are nothing new. Sure, they’ve gotten their fair share of upgrades to keep up with the latest police equipment, but how effective are they against speed and red-light cameras? I don’t know of any that are able to warn you of either device, which might land you a ticket in the mail. Thankfully, Cobra has a trick up their sleeve.

The new Cobra SL3 has built-in GPS functionality so that it can tell you when you are approaching an area that has either red-light cameras or speed cameras. It has a series of LEDs and warning tones that will let you know when you are getting close. It updates itself every 12 hours so that it has the latest information on new cameras that have been installed. For $100, it will pay for itself by preventing just one ticket.

Update: I’ve removed the link to Cobra’s site, as it appears to currently be infected.

    apparently the cobra website doesn't like the firefox beta. i get a notification that it contains a virus/spyware/malware from google. just thought i'd throw that out there.

    That's strange, as it wasn't doing that this morning when I posted the article. Thanks for the heads-up guys, I've gone ahead and removed the link for now.

    Beltronics has been making radar detectors for more then 2 years that detect x band, k band, ka band, laser and have built in gps to tell you how fast you were going when the radar hits and where the red light cameras are as well as speed cameras, their database is updated monthly. They are a bit more costly though at 450 dollars. https://www.beltronics.com/store/gx-65.html
