my radar when detect some make sound bip 3 or 4 times and it self down the volume automatic after these , what happen ?

Asked by: ajpr969
That is normal. The "Auto-mute" feature automatically lowers the volume after about 3 beeps. If you prefer to hear the constant LOUD beeping, simply turn the auto-mute off in the menu.

Will a cracked windshield cause my radar detector go off with the Laser warning every minute or so? It hasn't ever done this, and the crack in my windshield is fairly new as well.

Asked by: Bratney39
Not at all. Laser signals are frequencies. There may be another source of electronic signals interfering with the laser band.

My SSR 80 did not warn me of laser not one peep, beep, nothing. I recieved a ticket yesterday at around 3pm and it was clear and sunny out. My radar detector is positioned in the center front windshield so that it has clear line of sight 360 degrees.

Asked by: Steveo77
There can be several reasons why a perfectly functioning radar detector does not provide an adequate alert: 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. 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. 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. 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. 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! 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. 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.

Thank you for your interest in our products. Please note, radars are receivers. Any signal that reaches the receiver, will cause it to alert, regardless of what direction the signal is coming from.

Is it common to get a lazor radar warrening every time you step on the gas peddle i have come to the conclusion that its reacting to the voltage spike as the alternator speeds up. its done this  in any of my vehicles.

Asked by: donthaveone
Not very common, however I have heard of that issue in the past. If you just purchased your radar, you have the option of exchanging it at the place of purchase or send it to Cobra for warranty replacement to the Chicago address on the box.

What does X, K, KA mean when alarm alerts?

Asked by: RickMellott
There are 4 different bands that the FCC has allocated for police radar. The four bands operate at different frequencies. In the beginning there was only the X band. Later on the K band was added. Later still the Ka and Laser bands were added. When the police clock your speed, their equipment will be operating within one of those four bands. It's not unlike broadcast radio. At first there was only the AM band, and now we have two bands: AM and FM. With police radar there are four bands.
