  • Best idea, sadly worthless, much software bugs

    By miketoshandel
    I use this product on my motorcycle, noting like this exist in the market. I can listen to my music, gps, and everything else that iPhone allows using my BT headset. However, due to software bugs and poor software design it is very unreliable and worthless sadly. What make this product further unfriendly is that the manual does not fully cover the detail operations specially when app is used, btw what makes this device so ideally powerful is the apps on smartphones. Here are basic two of many problems 1) there is delay between alert can be heard from BT headphone and radar alert. 2) when reader can’t get network signal a big sign appear middle of display and won’t go away until signal is received. This could be minutes to hours depends on where you are. Sometimes it freezes and wouldn’t go away until you reset everything. The worst part of everything is that when you contact tech support is hard to get to and you are ignored and you get a miki mouse answer. This is a sad story since this product has a such potential.

  • Doesn’t support iPhone X

    By Brandon Monroe
    After a year later we still don’t have iPhone X display support.
  • Useful

    By Wade9386
    Would be better if it was able to use with CarPlay so I can just use the screen in the truck
  • I Radar

    By Blue04sti
    Unit and app worked great till there update and now it just says no network connection. For months I’ve tried calling cobra, left messages and sent emails to get the issue fixed. I get no response from either. It’s a shame that a company like cobra hasn’t done anything to fix the problem. They can update the app for other things but for some reason don’t care to have an update to fix the problem. If your thinking of getting iRadar might wanna think twice since there customer service is terrible. Here is there number maybe if enough people leave them messages about the issue they will put some more effort into fixing it. For assistance, you can call our technical line at 773-804-3473.
  • Latest update broke the app

    By NewsHungry0
    I have data turned off and switch to the Dashboard screen because it’s not as bright in the darkness. The newest update keeps saying “no connections” and won’t let me mute the false alerts. Have to use the default and very bright blank screen to mute the detector. Have to keep the phone plugged in as it uses up the battery life quickly. Would be nice if it just lit the screen when an actual alert needed attention. Have to keep the interface simple for hands free States. Need a way to silence the false alerts for congested traffic for a period of time or when trying to carry on a conversation without noisy interruptions. Need a night mode to avoid lighting up the car’s interior.
  • Lacks iPhone X support

    By Jackkm2013
    Lack of support for the display on the iPhone X. The user interface is outdated. And auto connect feature would be nice, instead of having to manually open the app every time the user get in their car.
  • Bad Update

    By rwm1233
    The latest app update causes a NO INTERNET CONNECTION display in the middle of screen. Will not go away when OK is pushed. Happens when I’m out in the country. Never happened before this update. Makes the display useless since it can’t be seen.
  • JUNK!

    By FLGuyinAK
    The speedometer function doesn't work and the "car battery" function reads -4.8VDC with my truck running. This app is JUNK.
  • Can’t connect after update to 4.6

    By BJacobsen
    Used to be a great tool. But after my phone updated to version 4.6 of the app, it can no longer connect to the detector. I’ve tried six different sequences of on/off, BlueTooth enable/disable, etc from the web; nothing worked. DO NOT install version 4.6.
  • Useless

    By mdelcour2015
    Yep. Useless. It’s basically a glorified Waze App. Why it even connects to the camera is beyond me, as you cannot view, replay or anything else via the app.
