December 8th, 2014 | Cobra Electronics | Chicago, IL

CHICAGO, IL — December 8, 2014; Cobra Electronics Corporation, a leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced that it has been named a bronze winner in the Best New Version of the Year category in the Best in Biz Awards 2014 for its Drive HD™ CDR 900 Dash Cam. Best in Biz Awards 2014 is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

The Drive HD CDR 900 Dash Cam by Cobra is the company’s Wi-Fi-enabled flagship model of the Drive HD Dash Cam series and is the most advanced model that comes in a compact form factor with a 2.0” LCD screen. The CDR 900 captures clear 1296P Super HD or 1080P HD video using an Ambarella™ A7LA chipset to ensure high-quality imaging and features a 160-degree ultra-wide viewing angle. The model goes the next step in video capturing and sharing through the free Cobra Drive HD™ App. Wi-Fi functionality allows 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. Through the Cobra Drive HD App, users can remotely command their CDR 900 to start recording, as well as control its settings through the app's easy-to-use menus. In Cloud Mode, users can view their camera in real-time from their smartphone anywhere in the world. It utilizes Continuous Loop Recording, which automatically overwrites the oldest footage when the memory card gets full, as well as a motion sensor for automatic recording while driving and G-Shock sensor to sense sudden deceleration and/or collisions to automatically capture and protect critical footage surrounding an accident.

“We are once again honored to be chosen by prominent press and industry analyst judges for the Best in Biz 2014 awards for another year standing,” said Sally Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. “As Cobra’s family of Drive HD Dash Cams is fairly new, we are pleased to stand out against the sea of other innovative and advanced products and technologies with our CDR 900 in the Best New Version of the year.”
