Based on the tremendous success of Cobra iRadar (launched in October 2010 for the Apple iOS platform), Cobra will release iRadar for Android in April.  The system is a sleek radar/laser detector that uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to connect with the free Cobra iRadar app, which is downloaded to an Android smartphone.  The app then displays all radar/laser alerts, allows the user to configure all detector settings, and alerts drivers to photo enforcement locations using AURA™, the only 100-percent verified database of driving threats and hazards throughout the GPS/navigation industry.  The AURA system is constantly updated with tens of thousands of speed and red light camera locations as well as known speed traps and dangerous intersections.  Soon, iRadar users will be able to share radar alerts with other iRadar users. This unique crowdsourcing model will help ensure that other iRadar customers are alerted in real time to upcoming dangers based on their GPS location.

"According to the very latest data from ComScore, the Android operating system now commands 31.2% of the smartphone market share in the U.S., making it the market leader among smartphones," said Sally Washlow, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Cobra Electronics.  "The expansion of our extremely popular iRadar product to Android smartphone users means that our crowdsourced threat database will become even more powerful thanks to an even broader user community.  We are very pleased to sponsor gdgt Live at SXSW, and to share with fans the safety and peace-of-mind that comes from being a part of the Cobra iRadar community."
