Radar detectors are primarily regarded as standalone devices that provide useful alerts when various detection systems are located. However, Cobra iRadar is not your average middle of the road offering – rather, it’s being touted as the world’s most advanced, smart detection system available today...

Interesting device, but shouldn't this be on meetgadget, not phonearena?

Great news story. I think this is the perfect web site for the story and it looks like an great devise. "Box" if you read the article, it is not a standalone radar detector but works only with a compatible phone.

I hope you add other news stories that are directly connected to smartphones.

I would like to see speed limit alerts as well, it would be great when travelling to a new city and your not familiar with the stretch of road that suddenly drops the limit by 10 mph. This is the kind of implementation that finally gets me to buy a radar detector.

Sounds great, but can you use this and also use your iphone or android for directions at the same time?

Don't waste your money. I wasted FF miles as they were about to expire. My purpose of getting this device was simply to get an alert from the motorcycle police pointing their radar device at me while on the 71 freeway and Yorba Linda blvd which is almost a daily occurance. Until I had the opportunity to test it with an actual motor cycle cop pointing his radar gun at my car the device did sound off all X alerts (no use to me), and K alerts when I drove past the speed signs displaying your current miles per hour. It sounds off K and KA alerts but I don't see a police car anywhere. Finally I had the opportunity to test it with the motorcycle cop pointing the radar gun at my car two mornings back to back and it didn't make a sound at all! There's no reason to believe it's defective. Brand new unit and i can't return it because I used FF miles to purchase. Very dissapointing. Guess I have to find a real radar detector on the market and buy that one.
