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.

Performance and Conclusions Cobra claims the iRadar 200 detects 14 different radar types, including X, K, and Ka-band radar, VG-2, and six kinds of laser guns, with 360-degree protection from all sides. On the road, the iRadar 200 performed in line...

Cobra iRadar iRAD-105 (for Android)


The Cobra iRadar system updates the venerable radar detector concept by adding a smartphone app component, albeit with mixed results.

Simple, well-designed app interface. Detects X, K, and Ka bands as well as laser. Clear alerts are easy to understand. Worked seamlessly in testing.

Crowd-sourced user reports generate way too many false alarms. Could use more range for Ka band. Aside from the interface, the app adds little in the way of actual functionality over a traditional radar detector.

Other Notes and Conclusions Unfortunately, iRadar also lacks directional alerts, the way the market-leading (but non-smartphone-based) Valentine One ($399) works, and the way K-40 detectors worked 20 years ago. That means if there's a source of radar...

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

Cobra iRadar Atom Review


The Cobra iRadar Atom is a radar detector that relies heavily on your smartphone. If you have a smartphone with a fast processor, large screen and good GPS features, then it can be one of the best radar detectors for keeping you safe and alerted to...

The community sharing feature of the iRadar app provides added protection to non-radar threats.

Nearly all the features are access and controls are in the iRadar app, which means you have to own a smartphone to use it effectively.

With over 40,000 user-generated reports every day, the community-sharing feature of the Cobra iRadar Atom is extremely valuable, so long as you own a smartphone.

Cobra iRadar 500 Bundle for iOS (iRadar 100 & Universal Phone Mount)


Very good unit for around town. Low profile and great price at under $25.00. I'm using just the detector by itself. It alerts with tones and voice right out of the box. I'm going to buy a second one for the other vehicle.

None. I'm just using this one in town.

Overall great little device for the price!

Works with or without iPod! Very sensitive to radar!

Some false reading, but I'd rather it be sensitive and give off a few false readings than miss something!
