Cobra Electronics Launches Its Award-Winning Cobra iRadar S-Series for Under-the-Hood Installation

CHICAGO, IL — (Marketwired) — 08/13/13 — (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of award-winning safety, mobile and automotive consumer electronics, today announced the general availability of its newest radar/laser/camera detector, the Cobra iRadar® S-Series for iOS Devices. This version, playing off the wildly popular, award-winning iRadar platform, is the world-s first under-the-hood radar detector to utilize a Bluetooth® connection to a smart phone. This state-of-the-art design is ideal for drivers who want advanced radar detection coupled with discreet installation to eliminate the need for mounting on vehicle windshields or dashboards.

The Cobra iRadar S-Series is installed in the engine compartment of a vehicle, thus rendering it completely invisible. Installation of the unit is easy and requires no running of wires into the cab. Instead, users simply connect the unit directly to a smartphone using Bluetooth technology to receive real-time alert information via the free Cobra iRadar app. Once paired with the app, users become members of the iRadar Community, enabling the receiving and sharing of alerts in real-time with other nearby iRadar users, including warnings of upcoming speed and red light camera enforcement, caution areas, dangerous intersections and live police locations — providing superior situational awareness behind the wheel.

The Cobra iRadar Community is the largest and most active community-based detection system. Consisting of nearly one million users with more than 40,000 user-generated reports daily, the Cobra iRadar app keeps drivers informed and aware of driving conditions with access to live nearby traffic information, audible maximum speed warning alerts, safety alerts, low car voltage alerts and more. The app also lets iRadar users- control their music collection directly from within the app and automatically logs the location of the user-s parked car to provide its location on the map view.

“As Cobra is advancing options and innovations in the iRadar Family and app, we are pleased to announce the general availability of the first under-the-hood radar detection that pairs via Bluetooth with the iRadar technology,” said Sally Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. “This S-Series enables users- to connect to the largest community-based detection system via smartphone. This ultimately cuts down on installation cost and time while providing users total protection via awareness of potential hazards — all without blocking the driver-s dashboard or windshield.”

The Cobra iRadar S-Series (S120R) is available online through for a retail price of $299.95.
