CNET First Look
Cobra iRadar Atom radar detector let's you know when to slow it downWhoa there, speed demon -- For $199, Cobra iRadar Atom keeps you in the know about local speed trackers around your area.
Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET and I'm here in Las Vegas at CTIA with the Cobra iRadar Atom. Now the first iRadar came out in 2010 but this Atom is 35 percent smaller than the original. The device basically detects radars operating on the Ka band system frequency which includes stoplight cameras and speed cameras. You can use the device in conjunction with the iRadar app. This app maps out all the known radar locations as well as crowd source hotspots where users flag reported sights of police officers looking for speeders. You can check how long an alert has been flagged as well as the seriousness or authenticity of an alert. In addition, you yourself can report if you see live police or a photo enforcement on a stop light or any area that drivers should be cautious about. The iRadar comes out today and is available online for about $200. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out the Cobra iRadar Atom.
