Industry Accolades Rolling In For Cobra's 7750 Platinum Family Of GPS Navigation Systems For Professional Drivers

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 2011 INTERNATIONAL CESCobra Electronics Corporation (Nasdaq: COBR), a leading manufacturer of radar detection and GPS Navigation systems for professional and recreational drivers, today announced that its 7750 Platinum GPS Navigation series has been honored with two prestigious industry awards; a CES Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award and a 5-Star rating and Trucking Test Award from Trucking Magazine.  The 7750 Platinum, which made its debut in August at the 2010 Great American Trucking Show, is a breakthrough advancement among GPS Navigation systems for professional drivers, setting new industry benchmarks for design, engineering, and system functionality.



At the 2011 International CES Press Preview, the Cobra Electronics 7750 Platinum GPS Navigation system was selected as an Innovations 2011 Design and Engineering Award honoree in the In-Vehicle Navigation/Telematics/ITS product category.  The award, given by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA), provides a preview of the hottest new consumer electronics products on the market in advance of the 2011 International CES exhibition beginning January 6, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Also in November, Performance Products Ltd. (PPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cobra Electronics, was recognized by Trucking Magazine with a Trucking Test Winner award and a 5-Star rating for the Snooper Truckmate S7000.  The Snooper S7000 is the European counterpart to Cobra's 7750 Platinum platform, featuring a host of mapping, navigation and advanced system capabilities tailored for the western European market.   Trucking Magazine's testers and editors awarded top honors to the Snooper S7000 after a comprehensive side-by-side review of the leading GPS Navigation systems for professional drivers and truckers.

The new Cobra 7750 Platinum features dramatically enhanced graphics, Junction View with Lane Assist, State Mileage Log, and an Hours-of-Service Log.  In addition, the 7750 Platinum features the industry's best last-mile routing and vastly superior road coverage on secondary highways.  The enhanced graphics and menu options on the 7750 Platinum provide maximum visibility in sunlight and optimized efficiency when scrolling through searches and settings of the unit.  The intuitive new Quick-Tabs feature allows drivers to view critical information such as the distances to weigh stations, travel centers, rest areas, and mile markers at a glance.  The new Junction View with Lane Assist provides drivers with 3D images of upcoming highway junctions as well as lane guidance and enhanced turn-by-turn directions. Also new on the 7750 is the State Mileage Log function that tracks miles within a state for IFTA reporting and the Hours-of-Service timer that enables drivers to easily track their On-Duty, Off-Duty, and Driving Time.
