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!

The app is useful, and the features thoughtfully laid out. It does tend to be taxing on the phone's resources, but when I'm in my car, I'm plugged in in, so it doesn't matter all that much. The biggest problem, actually an oversight of huge proportions, is that there is no Android Auto connectivity. By this point in history, someone at Cobra should have noticed this and fixed it. This is what cost you a star.

Good app overall, bluetooth connection seems more stable and reliable since the update (5.1.77), and I haven't had any more problems with random disconnects. However in my opinion, the app should integrate with Android Auto as this would make it appreciably easier/safer to interact with/dismiss alerts while driving. It does also from time to time still take a couple of tries to get the app to close, but overall it's a much appreciated improvement over the previous version.

This app works with Cobra 9200bt. I always turns it on when I am using my radar detector. It does not use mush data as well. I use samsung S7 active. Still don't know why some people say it does not work. Trust me. It is very helpful. Second update. The app is disconnected to the phone and the speed is turned to zero. That makes the app ignore all alerts. Need to fix those errors.
