About this app

iRadar Takes Detection to the Cloud!
What’s New
The iRadar app has been redesigned from the ground up to offer the most comprehensive protection from speed and camera enforcement threats.

New Features
• A reimagined user interface optimized to reduce driver distraction while providing highly relevant driving alerts and information
• Enhanced Map View with direction up mode, embedded traffic, night mode, and auto-zoom based on vehicle speed for an improved driving experience
• Pop-Up Alerts mirror the detector display to clearly warn of upcoming threats while simultaneously providing contextual information in the Map View
• The new CloudSource™ Platform intelligently aggregates and displays information from multiple sources, ensuring driver alerts are always relevant, timely and accurate
• Car Finder makes it easy to find your vehicle, even in the most confusing parking lots

The new app is backward compatible with all Cobra iRadar Devices. Simply log in using your existing account to revolutionize your driving experience!

iRadar is the world’s first and largest community-based radar/laser/camera detection system. iRadar allows you to share and receive alerts in real time from other iRadar users! With access to live radar/laser detection, user reports, automatic alert reporting, and Cobra’s Defender speed and red light camera database, iRadar users are the smartest and most aware drivers on the road. Download Cobra iRadar to see how social networking revolutionizes detection.

iRadar Features:
• Community-based alerts to upcoming ‘Police Spotted’ speed traps, accidents, work zones, road hazards, detours, and traffic jams
• Verified alerts from Defender®, the world’s largest database of red light, speed, and mobile cameras
• Integrates with compatible Cobra products to control settings and present alert information
• Great driving features including Live Traffic, Car Finder, Get Directions, Day/Night Mode, and customizable vehicle icons
Premium Features (requires in-app purchase)
• Radar Relay – patented technology that connects radar detectors so that radar/laser alert information is automatically shared among users in real time
• Posted Speed Limits displayed both in the app and on your connected detector
• Two convenient levels of subscription service – $4.99 per month or $49.99 per year
• 1 year Premium subscription included free with purchase of a compatible Cobra product

*Note: Certain functionalities of this app are only available when linked to a Cobra iRadar Device. To purchase a Cobra iRadar device go to or enter the store page on the app.

**Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Did you know,
• Radar detectors are legal in 49 states (only Virginia prohibits their use)
• More than 42 million drivers receive a speeding ticket in the United States each year – about one in every five drivers
• The average speeding ticket costs $150 and increases insurance premiums by $900 over a 3-year period
• The Cobra iRadar and ESCORT Live communities have combined, effectively doubling the number of users contributing radar/laser data and user reports. There is strength in numbers!

I think I'm finally switching to K40. I'm on my second radar detector and it still will not stay connected to my app. I've tried deleting the app, clearing data. All of it. It just does NOT WORK. Really expensive, subscription based radar detector that's dependant on an app with consistent problems. Do not buy Escort/Cobra. This is probably the 5th time I've made a poor review for these issues. Don't forget everytime you try to renew the subscription it doesn't work and Google play refunds you.

Have to force stop every time you want to close the app. Takes forever to connect to unit. Usually have to "select" an option two or three times before it registers. Sometimes it basically "defaults" to options I didn't choose. Maybe that's the couple hundred dollar difference between Cobra and Escort. Will be the one and only time I try to save money aamd believe the "great" reviews, that's for sure....

On Android 10. Originally this worked well with the iRadar 200 I have. The app has changed significantly. An expiration on the app features has been imposed. Accounts are required. A subscription to a service is also required. I bought this unit as a standalone that integrates with the app. It doesn't do that very well any longer. It is slow to find the BT connection (if it does). Despite providing location access on my phone it does not track as I travel. Force stop has to be used. 😕
