Cobra Electronics Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of award-winning mobile and consumer electronics, today announced its plans to exhibit at the gdgt Live Austin consumer electronics showcase, which takes place Saturday, March 9th 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 innovations for technology fans and press attendees. Products to be displayed include:

Cobra AirWaveTM

The Cobra AirWave is a compact portable music bridge that allows users to wirelessly connect their Bluetooth®-enabled media devices (mp3 players, smartphones or tablets) to their older generation home stereo, car stereo, or standalone speakers.  The Cobra AirWave receiver connects to stereo equipment via cabling options that include 3.5mm to 3.5mm (headphone jack) cable, 3.5mm to RCA, and USB to micro-USB. The user pairs their media device to the AirWave unit, which acts as a wireless bridge allowing the user to, at The Hype Hotel located at 301 Brazos Street, transmit audio via Bluetooth® to older home or car stereo systems. This wireless connection offers users the freedom to be away from the stereo and control their music from up to 30 feet away. The AirWave can be powered by standard USB outlets or through the built-in Lion polymer rechargeable battery, which supports an impressive ten to twelve hours of music playback. Now, users can combine the compatibility and convenience of today’s Bluetooth®-enabled digital music players with their investment in existing stereo systems at a small fraction of the cost of newer systems. MSRP: $39.95

Cobra iRadar ATOMTM

Based on the award-winning and universally compatible iRadar system, the iRadar ATOM is the smallest and most powerful radar/laser/camera detection system ever developed by Cobra. By leveraging advances in system design and component engineering, the iRadar ATOM boasts a footprint that is 35 percent smaller than the previous iRadar models, making it the smallest, most compact detector on the market while offering double the detection performance. When connected with the companion app, the iRadar ATOM allows the iRadar users to share alerts in real time with other members of the iRadar community. MSRP: $199.95

Cobra VedettaTM SLR 650G

The Cobra Vedetta series is setting the new benchmark at the high end of the radar/laser detection market boasting a 30 percent increase in performance over Cobra’s current flagship model.  The Cobra Vedetta SLR 650G sports a 2.4-inch TFT color LCD display and can be mounted virtually anywhere on the windshield or dash.  Not only does the Vedetta SLR 650G deliver unparalleled performance and range but it also boasts an integrated GPS receiver and free, lifetime access to its AURATM national database of speed trap locations. MSRP: $309.95.
