There's a traffic cop on the road ahead and he's just waiting to slap a fine on your speed-freakin' self. But it's cool: Cobra's new Vedetta range of radar/laser detectors will tell you to hit the brakes 30 percent sooner than the previous XRS models, and they additionally come with 2.4-inch LCD displays, the ability to mount almost anywhere on your windscreen or dash, plus optional integrated GPS and access the company's AURA database of known speed traps. Soon as you're back down to 50MPH, you can warn the rest of your undercover convoy to do the same, thanks to the new Cobra CXT two-way radio line-up featuring a range up to 35 miles, NOAA Weather Radio and a dedicated button for crude one-liners. Read on for the press releases, but don't expect much detail on pricing or availability -- at least until CES rolls around.

announced it will preview the new Cobra Vedetta series, a stunning new automotive industry
advancement in radar and laser detection, to an expected audience of more than 140,000 consumer

Cobra Vedetta™ – The New Standard in Radar/Laser Detection
The Cobra® Vedetta Ultimate Detection Systems Series set the new standard in radar/laser detection system. The revolutionary detection system boasts a 30 percent increase in performance over Cobra's current flagship model, providing stellar range and more than ample time to react to potential threats. The Vedetta line sports a 2.4-inch TFT color LCD display on a multi-axis hinge and a ball-socket suction cup mounting bracket, which allows the driver to mount the detector virtually anywhere on the windshield or dash of their automobile. The display can be rotated 270 degrees vertically and 60 degrees horizontally. Mounting radar/laser detectors on the center of the windshield has historically been critical for performance, but is not necessarily ideal for driver visibility as well as unit concealment.

In addition to setting a new benchmark among detection systems for form factor, and driver
ergonomics, Cobra offers an integrated GPS receiver and free, lifetime access to its AURA™ national database of speed/red-light cameras and known speed trap locations.

Cobra Vedetta Series Key Features and Highlights:
- Maximum range and selectivity for advance warnings on all radar and laser guns currently
utilized in the U.S.
- Integrated GPS Receiver and AURA Speed/Red-Light Camera and Known Speed Traps
database alerts the driver well in advance of location-based threats with coverage throughout the U.S. and Canada (available on SLR 650G)
