Cobra used the gdgt Live event at SXSW to announce that iRadar will be available for Android phones sometim...

We liked the idea of the iRadar when we first heard about it, and Cobra put the device front and center at its CES 2011 booth (well, right next to the girls in skimpy police uniforms). The iRadar is a radar detector that hooks right up to Cobra's official iPhone app, and it will not only alert ...

You know we've seen our share of GPS units, the occasional radar detector, and even a radar detector that incorporates GPS functionality to keep on top of speed traps. The kids at Escort, however, are throwing us "the world's first fully integrated driving accessory." (Whatever that means!) Passpor...

Origin Technologies may not be making many friends in Switzerland, but the company is certainly doing its best to cater to other Europeans who prefer not to take speed limits literally, releasing a range of devices that warn of an impending need to slow down.

Sure, the higher-ups in Switzerland aren't exactly fond of GPS devices that sniff out speed cameras, but that's not stopping France's own GPSPrevent from kicking out a rendition of its own to fight The Man whilst driving. Presumably similar in function to Cobra's own forthcoming (and controversial...

Nowadays, we're lucky to be able to so much as breathe air while driving without getting penalized. As of late, motorists in South Yorkshire have quite the incentive to keep their phone conversations under wraps while in transit.
