USD$ 129.95

The Cobra iRadar 230 community-based detection system is a high-performance detector that detects all radar and laser guns currently in use. The iRAD 230 works with iPhone and Android smartphones, provides 360 degree protection, and reduces false alerts with city/highway mode. Cobra"s iRadar app displays visual alerts from the detector on iPhone or Android smartphones. It alerts to speed and red light cameras, known speed traps and dangerous intersections. The iRAD 230 shares alerts and locations in real-time with the Cobra iRadar Community.

With the latest iRadar app 4.0 updates, iRadar community members enter into the next era of convenience and ease-of-use with significant enhancements to its mapping features.  On top of its award-winning, community-based threat sharing and detection capabilities, the new Cobra iRadar App Version 4.0 offers users powerful driver tools directly from within the iRadar app. A new rotating map combined with an automatic zoom feature based on vehicle speed allows iRadar to show more of the road ahead. This improves the driving experience by allowing users to see alert locations well before getting to them. In addition, users can now rotate, tilt and pan the map freely to view at any angle.

Users also benefit from additional mapping and simple navigation performance features.  The new Live Traffic Data Integration shows real-time traffic information directly on the map, allowing users to avoid congested areas. With the Get Directions feature users can enter an address and iRadar will plot the best route to the destination on the map. This simple navigation can be a supplement to, or even replacement for, running a separate navigation app. Coverage Map View allows users to see where iRadar alerts are concentrated and spot isolated alert locations on long stretches of road when zoomed out.

With 40,000 user-generated reports per day and nearly one million users, the iRadar Community is one of the largest and most active detection communities in the world, and is the ultimate tool for driver awareness and threat avoidance. Drivers receive access to its advanced real-time community threat sharing capabilities while receiving AURA® speed and red light camera notifications, verified user-reported alerts of upcoming live police locations and other real-time traffic threat information.

Cobra iRadar App Version 4.0 also includes music control, background alert notifications and distance countdown to alerts.

Can this unit be seen by Radar Detector Detection units such as in states or provinces where they have made the use of Radar Detectors illegal to use on highways?  In these jurisdictions the police issue fines and confiscate the equipment on the spot.  I

I own this radar detector. I went through a speed trap where there were three cars using laser and my detector didn't go off. Is NYS using a new band, or did my detector just not work?? I got a ticket

Asked by: mushu
WHY DIDN'T MY RADAR DETECTOR ALERT ME? There can be several reasons why a perfectly functioning radar detector does not provide an adequate alert: 1. Installation Issues The radar detector needs a clear, unobstructed view down the road. The detector should be mounted at the windshield, and there should be no obstructions (such as windshield wipers) in front of the detector. The detector also needs to be level. This is accomplished by bending the mounting bracket as needed until the detector is level. For best results against laser detection, mount the detector as low as possible on the windshield. Do not mount the detector behind any window tint, otherwise laser detection can be severely reduced. 2. The police car did not have an active radar/laser gun In order to alert, the police car must have a radar or laser gun, and the gun must be turned on. Just because a police car is on the side of the road does not mean it has a radar gun. And if you see a radar gun, it might not be turned on at the moment. 3. Police did not use radar/laser to clock you The police may be using a non-radar method of clocking speed, such as VASCAR. With VASCAR, an airplane or helicopter measures the time it takes a vehicle to pass 2 markers on the road. A timer is started when you pass the first marker, and then the timer is stopped when you reach the second marker. Your speed can be calculated based on the time it takes to travel between the markers. The pilot then radios the information to a police car. Since no radar or laser is involved with VASCAR, it cannot be detected by a radar detector. 4. Issues with the windshield Your vehicle may have an electric defroster built into the windshield or a special coating on the windshield. Both of these items can block radar and/or laser signals. To check whether your vehicle has any of these, please inquire at your auto dealer or the auto manufacturer. 5. Police used “instant-on” radar to clock you With instant-on radar, the officer waits until your vehicle is very close and then he turns on his radar gun. Your detector will not alert until you are right on top of them. The best way to detect instant-on radar is to detect the officer clocking someone ahead of you. If you are the only car on the road, be careful! 6. Issues with the local terrain The officer may have been positioned over a hill or around a curve. Curves and hills will reduce radar range. Use caution when approaching curves and hills. 7. Intelli-Mute was turned on On detectors with Intelli-Mute, the Intelli-Mute may have been engaged. This can result in only 1 beep which may have gone unnoticed. Try turning Intelli-Mute off.
