Cobra's iRadar integrates radar detection with the iPhone
Cobra, the maker of radar detection devices, is coming out with an iPhone-integrated solution. The iRadar Detection System will involves a top-tier radar detector paired via Bluetooth to an app on your iPhone.

iRadar will use the phone's GPS to allow users to log their own encountered threats, and view a database of previously encountered threats. The interface will be on a live map on the iPhone, which will also display the car's speed and compass heading. And maybe this isn't a selling point, but it also displays the vehicle's battery level.

The database of road hazards will include speed traps, red light cameras, and dangerous intersections. If you're shopping for a James Bond wannabe motorist this year, the iRadar will make the perfect gift.

As a standalone unit, the iRadar radar detector provides 360 degrees of coverage, and audible alerts that increase in volume in proportion to the proximity of the threat. When combined with the iPhone app, the user will also get the visual functions of iRadar, plus the ability to customize alerts, i.e. turning off red light camera alerts, etc.

The iRadar Detection System is available now for $170.
