Cobra iRadar ATOM Detection System Recognized as Best New Version of
the Year for Its Advances to the iRadar Family of Radar Detectors
CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 11/25/13 -- Cobra Electronics
Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of
award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today
announced it has been named a silver winner for its Cobra iRadar(R)
ATOM(TM) in the Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business
awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Best in Biz Awards 2013 honors were presented in more than 50
categories with more than 500 entries received this year, including a
wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a
variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada.
Based on the award-winning Cobra iRadar(R) system, the iRadar ATOM is
one of the smallest and most powerful radar/laser/camera detection
systems ever developed. Leveraging advances in system design and
component engineering, the Cobra iRadar ATOM packs double the
performance in a 35 percent smaller form factor than previous iRadar
models. As with all iRadar models, the ATOM connects iPhone and
Android devices via Bluetooth(R) to the iRadar Community. When the
ATOM pairs to the iRadar app, traffic alerts can be shared in
real-time with other iRadar users, including warnings on speed and
red light cameras, speed traps, dangerous intersections and live
police locations. In addition, when the ATOM detects a radar or laser
alert it automatically shares this data with the rest of the iRadar
Community and notifies users when entering high-threat areas.
In addition to a wide variety of traffic threat alerts, users can
also view live traffic information, automatically save the location
where their car is parked and control their music right from the app
on their phone. The iRadar Community has nearly one million users
with 40,000 user-generated reports daily, making it one of the
largest and most active detection communities in the world.
"All of us at Cobra Electronics are proud to be recognized by
prominent press and industry analyst judges in the Best in Biz Awards
as the Best New Version of the Year for our iRadar ATOM," sai
Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. "As Cobra is constantly
expanding our iRadar technology and model line, we're pleased that
