Cobra Radar Detector In The Comfort of Your iPhone

Radar detectors are definitely useful, especially now with speeding tickets are a much more frequent occurance but maybe you don’t want a whole system installed in your car, maybe you’d rather have something small and compact to keep away preying eyes. Well, it seems that radar detector producer Cobra has a solution with their latest technology which is able to turn your iPhone into a fully operational radar detector. The iRadar as they call it uses radar/laser gun and speed/red light camera detection technology. Included in this little package is the radar detector, an App for the iPhone and Bluetooth wireless technology to connect iPhone to the detector. All this successfully makes your phone into a Multi-Touch display to control the detector’s settings.

The intellegent Cobra iPhone Radar Detector has a 360 degrees detection angle and works against regular radar and laser guns. At only 169.99, this item is one very serious alternative to your standard system. Plus, I would feel like a spy with some high tech gadgets at my disposal. No? Alright, just me then.
