CHICAGO, IL (September 4, 2015) — Cobra Electronics Corporation, the leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced it has been named as a finalist in the 2015 CTIA Awards competition. Securing two finalist spots in the Hot for the Holidays subdivision, the competition recognizes Drive HD™ CDR 855 BT Dash Cam by Cobra in the Connected Car category and the Cobra JumPack™ CPP 8000 in Devices & Gadgets category. The CTIA Hot for the Holidays Awards recognize the hottest mobile consumer electronics, devices, wearables, accessories and entertainment, home and car products in time for the holiday buying season.
Selected in two separate and standout categories, Cobra secured a spot with the CDR 855 BT Drive HD™ Dash Cam, one of the most advanced and user-friendly product lines. The CDR 855 BT allows drivers to protect their vehicle, relive a drive and share interesting footage by continuously recording video of the road ahead in 1080P Full HD video. The CDR 855 BT is the first of its kind to connect to your smartphone via Bluetooth® Smart wireless technology and includes new features such as GPS location, time, G-force and speed information footage, as well as providing alerts for upcoming speed and red light cameras, live police locations and shared radar alerts from the iRadar® Community. Chosen for another consumer favorite, the Cobra JumPack™ CPP 8000 is the perfect companion for travel, outdoor, safety and multipurpose use and offers a mobile-device charging unit that is strong enough to jumpstart a number of vehicles multiple times on one charge. The unit weighs in at just under 10 ounces, making it the company’s smallest, yet most powerful portable power option.
“Cobra is honored to be acknowledged as a finalist in the evolving technology industry and again in the CTIA Awards for another year,” said Sally Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. “These specific awards represent some of the finest mobile products that transform our industry and we are excited that they pair with our upcoming launches of the technologically advanced, consumer-friendly products.”
