Cobra iRadar Atom


The Cobra iRadar Atom (iRAD 900) builds on the previously tested iRAD 200 , cramming everything that we liked about the old hardware into a smaller, less obtrusive package. The tiny device has a footprint that's smaller than a deck of cards (3.34...

The Cobra iRadar Atom is surprisingly sensitive for such a compact radar detector. The companion smartphone app and AURA database extend the alert range even further while reducing false alarms.

Adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning systems proved to be a constant source of false alerts.

With the aid of your smartphone and an app, the compact Cobra iRadar Atom is a powerful tool for monitoring the road ahead for speed traps and road hazards.

Cobra iRadar 200 (for iPhone and Android)


Cobra's latest radar detector, the iRadar 200, offers a compelling companion smartphone app, but we still wish the unit itself had a longer range.

Clear interface and alert status. Reliably detects police when they're present and clocking drivers. Detects X, K, and Ka bands, and can also detect laser

Short detection distances. Lots of false alarms, although you can fine-tune them over time with the app. User-reported, crowd-sourced alerts are hit or miss

The Cobra iRadar 200 ($129.95 list) delivers a compelling experience—if that's possible for a radar detector—thanks to its companion smartphone app, which tracks your location, current speed, and direction. The iRadar 200 works by itself without the...

Cobra iRadar ATOM Review


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...

Smaller size takes up less space ; Accurate in spotting threats ; Mobile app enhances the experience

It's pricier than previous models ; Audio output isn't as strong, sometimes drowning out

Consumer review by:

Excellent early warning detector.


I have purchased this line of detectors for many years as new improvements have come out. I have also had other brands, but for the investment, I have found that the multiband Cobra's have alway worked the best.

Give me enough time to react to a radar gun

Picks up alot of K band

Good for its Price


Worth the price. I know most cops don't have their radars on when they are driving around but when they use their lasers or they are hiding around corners. It is well worth it. Only down side is when your in the city, it likes to go off and give false...

Not too bad

Consumer review by:

Didn't detect any police


First of all it will drain your car battery if you don't unplug it even if the vehicle is off. Second it didn't detect any police officers even right next to me on the highway. It went off once to tell me there was a train and there was no train. That...

Easy to set up
