Cobra iRadar ATOM Review

0. phoneArena 26 Apr 2014, 12:48 posted on

Although it’s been on the market for some time now, the Cobra iRadar ATOM takes everything we loved about the iRadar 200, but condenses it to an even more compact package – saving precious space on the ever dwindling windshield space. Question is, will it be enough to warrant a purchase, especially when there’s a $70 increase in price?...

Um so does this outperform some of the higher end passport or valentine 1 models?
If not then this is merely a gimick where its primary function isn't up to par

That would be a resounding no... It will not outperform either a Valentine One nor a Passport Maxx. In fact many offerings from Bel Technologies and Escort are much superior to the Cobra brand of radar detectors.

If you want the absolute best overall range performance there still is no one that touches the Valentine One.

My Valentine One jumped out of my car, walked into my office, read this article, giggled a bit then cleared its throat in a distinguished manner and walked back to my car.

I have an older Cobra XRS9930 and used it for years before upgrading to a V1
but the idea of a radar and smartphone, just sounds like a disaster to me.
