October 16th, 2012 | Cobra Electronics | Chicago, IL

Cobra Electronics Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of award-winning mobile and consumer electronics, today announced its sponsorship and plans for the gdgt Live Boston consumer electronics showcase, which takes place tomorrow, October 17th, at the Bijou Nightclub, 51 Stuart Street, from 7:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.  The event is free of charge and open to the public.  Technology enthusiasts are encouraged to RSVP by clicking here. Throughout the event, Cobra will demonstrate its latest products for Boston gadget lovers and press attendees, including two of its newest and most popular radar/laser/camera detectors: Cobra Vedetta™ SLR 650G and Cobra iRadar TM 200.

The newly released Cobra Vedetta series is setting the new standard in radar/laser detection performance and style.  The Vedetta line sports a 2.4-inch TFT color LCD display and can be mounted virtually anywhere on the windshield or dash.  Not only does Vedetta deliver unparalleled range but it also boasts an integrated GPS receiver and free, lifetime access to its AURATM national database of speed trap locations.

Cobra iRadar 200, the latest version of Cobra’s award-winning smart detection system, is universally compatible with iOS and Android™ smartphones and consists of a sleek dash-mounted detector unit paired via Bluetooth® to the powerful and intuitive smartphone app. Together the system detects police radar/laser signals and notifies users in real-time of upcoming caution areas, excessive vehicle speed, live police and photo enforcement areas, and then automatically shares caution information with other iRadar users nearby through the ever-expanding iRadar community.

Additionally, Cobra will be showcasing consumer favorites Cobra JoyRide and Cobra Tag Universal.  Cobra JoyRide is an intelligent and affordable automotive charging system that automatically reconfigures Android smartphone settings when users enter or exit their vehicle. The free companion Android app allows the owner to initiate phone calls, launch voice commands, learn about road hazards and even launch navigation apps just with the push of a single button. Cobra Tag Universal is a personal loss prevention system for protecting smartphones, backpacks, car keys and other personal valuables. This small, sleek key fob device and smartphone app warns Cobra customers when they are about to leave their valuables behind.
