Cobra’s iRadar Is iPhone Friendly

I’m still not entirely sure why anyone would ever need a radar detector, but Cobra, one of the biggest names in the biz, now has a model that plays nice with the iPhone. Actually it’s kind of beyond just playing nice, since most radar detectors I’ve ever seen only use a set of blinking LEDs or sound alerts to keep you notified. The iRadar on the other hand uses the iPhone (via a Bluetooth connection) as a touch-friendly UI for changing the settings on the device or of course notifying you of known speed traps, redlight cameras or ‘dangerous intersections.’

It also facilitates history logs for remembering where previously detected traps or areas of concern have been. But if you don’t have an iPhone or forget yours one day, the Cobra will work as a standard, though less fun, radar detector. $169.95 available now.

  1. If you can't figure out why anyone would need a radar detector then you shouldn't be writing for a tech site.

    I can tell you why some use it. If you drive a sports car, especially a red Mustang like I do, you are a radar magnet. I stay within the speed limit using my GPS as a speedometer, but, I know that sometimes a corrupt law officer will lock in a “good speed” and when they think someone is going over the speed, will pull them over and if the person doesn't give them too much static, will tag them for that speed. The radar detector doesn't beep, then they didn't turn it on.

  3. Hey Rusty, well all officers are not corrupt :))
