August 18th, 2014 | Cobra Electronics | Chicago, IL

CHICAGO, IL — August 18, 2014; Cobra Electronics Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced that it has been recognized with a 2014 TWICE VIP Award for its Drive HD™ Dash Cam by Cobra product line. TWICE, the number one business publication serving the consumer electronics industry, recently announced the winners of its second annual TWICE VIP (Very Important Product) Awards, honoring the Drive HD Dash Cams by Cobra in the “Car: General Products” category.

The TWICE VIP Awards give retailers and distributors the opportunity to honor the products that have made the biggest difference in their business. The awards, voted on solely by retailers and distributors, are based on product features, product design and value to consumers.

Cobra Electronics, the leading provider of dash cams in the U.S., is redefining the way users capture and share their moments on the road. Drive HD Dash Cams by Cobra utilize a motion sensor for automatic recording while driving, as well as Continuous Loop Recording, which automatically overwrites the oldest footage. All models also include a G-Shock Sensor, which senses sudden deceleration and collisions to automatically capture and protect critical footage surrounding an accident. This feature helps protect users while on the road and ensures greater security of possible evidence surrounding insurance claims.

For further protection, several Drive HD Dash Cam models are equipped with GPS, CDR 840, which can be used to pinpoint a user’s exact location and speed, which could prove critical in pinpointing an exact accident location along with the speed of the car at time of impact. Cobra’s WiFi-Direct enabled Drive HD Dash Cam, the award-winning CDR 900, allows users to connect and stream in real-time to share footage directly to an iOS or Android device. Equipped with a community of Drive HD Dash Cam app users, members can share their interesting and funny moments from the road directly to the community.

“We are honored and delighted to be recognized by TWICE as a 2014 TWICE VIP Award recipient,” said Sally Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. “All of us at Cobra are dedicated to delivering high-quality, reliable mobile electronics products that help keep our customers safe and secure on the road, and our entire line of award-winning dash cams are one more example of that commitment.”
