Used to work I have 2 of these detectors, gave one away when I sold the car because it stopped syncing with one. Won't connect to my Galaxy SII but works with S5. Bought a Galaxy tab 4, and app installed on floor model. Got new one home installed app and crashes at open. I just want a bigger GPS screen device to work with app. .... going to ditch all detectors and buy some of the competitors units that have support for their apps. Cobra provide support !!, ANY support !!! Gave it a one star because it is useless to me
Does not work with the Iradar. Despite the selling point, it did pair with the phones. not recognized by the app. The detector works good solo tho.
Fantastic concept, but the system needs a little bit more refinement. Firmware updates to the detector itself need to be pushed through the app to help deal with false signals from parking sensors and collision avoidance systems for sure. Better operation for those who keep their phones in their pocket when in the car rather then reliance on the iradar app being in the foreground is a must. The auto off feature doesn't work very well on a fully charged battery, I often found the detector thinking the car was still running because the battery voltage remained 12.7 after the car was off. Cobra is onto something big here with the iradar, and if they continue with consistent patches and improvements not only to the app but to the detectors themselves and use the system to the fullest, this could dominate the radar detector market as the sub $100 dollar price tag for these makes them the best deal in town for detectors with these features.
Really needs an update.. Only way to close app is to force close. If you don't, it stays active in background using your gps and murders your battery. If you disable background activity, when you use your phone for anything else it turns off even tho the device is still on. Why is this necessary? Why not auto launch/close with the device turning on and off? Makes what should be a great app, more of a pos.
Its ok, but improvement desperately needed! Needs the following: map zoom levels (when going fast, not enough time to see what is ahead), direction of travel up instead of north up, automatic connect/app launch (my smart watch can do this, why not this device?), option to customize dashboard (would like to have alert levels up all the time, and speed displayed on the map, etc.). An optional app for smart watches would be AWESOME!
I can't even Cobra makes good radar detectors. They do not make apps or social networks. This app is simply awful. No one uses it because it's so bad and hence the "community" of users never grows. If Cobra had any sense or business acumen they would partner up with Waze or another major mapping/navigation app.
