ShowStoppers at IFA took place on Thursday, September 4 on the heels of Cobra’s debut into the European Market.
The CDR 900E is the company’s most advanced and feature-rich European Wi-Fi-enabled flagship model of the Drive HD™ Dash Cam series. The CDR 900E comes with a 2.0 inch LCD screen, the largest in the series and also includes a Micro HDMI output to directly play footage on a HD TV or computer. With a 160-degree angle to provide an ultra-wide view, the unit is able to film the entire road and peripherals without edge distortion. It is designed in a compact form factor and utilizes Continuous Loop Recording, which automatically overwrites the oldest footage when the memory card is full. The model also features a motion sensor for automatic recording while driving, as well as a G-Shock sensor, which senses sudden deceleration and/or collisions to automatically capture and protect critical footage surrounding an accident. With WiFi direct, the CDR 900E goes the next step in video capture and sharing through the free Cobra Drive HD™ App allowing the user to connect and stream live and recorded footage directly to the user’s iOS or Android device to instantly view and share footage.
