Cobra HH500 Floating VHF Marine Radio  
The Cobra HH500 Floating VHF Marine Radio is a hand-held waterproof
radio that includes Bluetooth(R) wireless technology. The wireless
capability allows users to pair their smartphone to the new radio, so
they answer phone calls while keeping their cell phones safe and dry.
The radio also supports voice dialing of the user's smartphone
directly from the HH500. Cobra Electronics was recently awarded a
patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for some of the
features designed into this radio. 
The Cobra HH500 Floating Marine Radio features Cobra's exclusive
patent-pending Rewind-Say-Again(R) digital voice recorder, which can
play back the last 20 seconds of any incoming audio. It also includes
a dedicated receiver for NOAA weather channels, ensuring that
important weather and emergency messages are never missed and users
are kept informed while on the water. The radio is truly designed
with the user in mind, sporting a bold orange finish so it can be
easily located if dropped overboard. The design also features easily
understood graphical keys to initiate features, and it leads the
industry with six watts of transmit power for maximum range. 
"Our goal with the development of the HH500 Marine radio was to
combine the popular features of Cobra's previous marine radios with
the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity," said Bill Boudreau,
senior director of category management and new business development
for Cobra. "This connectivity allows users to pair a smartphone to
the hand-held radio for the ultimate in ease-of-use. These radios
allow users to keep their cell phone dry when making or receiving
calls and receiving weather alerts even in the most extreme
conditions." 
Pricing and Availability 
The Cobra HH500 Floating VHF Marine Radio will be available beginning
