Previous update release notes:
The next big leap for iRadar is here. We celebrating iRadar’s 4th birthday by completely redoing the map and adding great new features.
1. Follow-Me-Mode -- A new rotating map and automatic zoom based on vehicle speed allows iRadar to show more of the road ahead of you. This greatly improves your driving experience by allowing you to see alert locations well before you get to them.
2. Simple Navigation -- Enter an address and iRadar will plot the best route to your destination on the map. This is a great supplement to, or even replacement for, running a separate navigation app.
3. Live Traffic Information -- Real-time traffic information is now shown directly on the map so that you can avoid congested areas and hit the open road.
4. Map Controls -- Now you can zoom, pan, tilt, and rotate the map to your heart’s content.
5. Macro View -- Alert icons are now shown on the map even when you zoom far out. This allows you to see where iRadar alerts are concentrated or spot isolated alert locations on long stretches of road.

"Saved me from no fewer than five different tickets already. It is fantastic." -Clayton Morris, Fox News Channel
*Note: Certain functionalities of this app are only available when linked to a Cobra iRadar Detector unit. To purchase a Cobra iRadar detector unit go to www.cobrairadar.com or enter the store page on the app.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
while driving my car, i listen music by ipod. Sometimes iradar annoy me and i need a mute button for all alerts. i can see the alerts on screen and sometimes i dont need sound alerts. Please add this feature. Thanks.
and quicker buttons to mark the threat type
Great app. Wish list to get 5 stars: (1) Automatic night mode swittching, like the GPS apps do. (2) Max posted speed limit info right in the window.
A complete Audible turn by turn will be great and will complete this app. Full nav is needed!!
Shows the location of common speed traps... Priceless app
Like the new heading up view and routing to destination.
I love the new maps! Great update.
Nice app I just bought the new cobra 7800 bt max and I'm loving it easy to pear and works great the only thing missing from the app is the ability to save destinations
It’s nice to have a companion app for a radar detector that can tell you what’s going on. However… It really needs a “NITE” setting. At night, my screen lights up like a flashlight. I have other ‘road’ apps that have this type of setting, and it helps, mostly at night. If it had that setting, I’d give it 5 Stars! Other than that, it is really informational!
App is awesome except it needs the posted speed. Then the app would be unbearable.
I love this this app. It save me from unexpected radars, red light cameras. If you live in the DC, Virginia area you can locate all speed cameras, red light cameras. It also locate speed traps.
Works fine with me! You guys probably need to upgrade to newer devices..
If the app is freezing on the opening, delete the app then reinstall. Worked for me. The update is nice, I love my Cobra radar detector.
You know who you would have to pay. Great app. Only one thing. They have a new rad. Gun out and when it gets you, you are stuck so keep reporting and I will. Fun for the highway.
Clear and understandable display. Love the new directions feature.
I like the radar detector system . I set it up to my liking and it has saved me from a ticket at least 4 times since I got it about 5 months ago. Only reason I didn't give all 5 was due to having to switch screens so much . The map screen has the tune controls why? I keep mine in dashboard 80% of the time.. Please put tune control on the dashboard . Thanks
I don't like that it shuts down after being stopped for 5 minuets. I'd rather be have a reminder to close the app myself or nothing at all. It was a better app in previous versions.
The system itself works great. I just wish Cobra would work on the software's user-interface a little better. It's still very "clunky" and could be improved quite a bit just by updating the UI.
The iPhone will pair with the detector every time; however, the Iradar App seldom does. Have tried everything possible to get the App to work and it just will not do it. Returning for a refund and will never purchase another Cobra product.
The Cobra app is really not all that helpful. The maps are not that great and don't really even show you where you are at. There is no way to bookmark an address that you want to save. There is no night mode. The maps apparently get downloaded as you get to the location and it does not really show you where you are at while using it. Also, the find my car feature is not helpful at all. My advice would be to pair up with Garmin and use their map features along with your social feature for live police etc... That would really make the concept better and make the process so much more useful.
Over-reporting / false reporting to the point App is almost useless. Users don't know the difference between red-light and speed cams. Reports based on GPS, so since you're driving and it won't let you post from another location, location of cameras is always off by at least a block.
SAFETY REQUEST Now that maps has limited navigation there should be no excuses why iRadar CAN'T automatically switch the CITY to HIGHWAY setting. iRadar CAN'T automatically change the City setting and Highway setting based on the Geographic location of the car. A simple request yet the software does not offer an automated solution based on the cars current geographic location. Why? It would be kinda cool to here the iRadar say "Highway" or "City" as you enter the exit ramp or entrance ramp off I290, I57 or I294. Hay Cobra I am getting local with you. Let's get it together Cobra. Automatic switching from City Driving or Highway Driving setting would be safer. A simple safety feature request. The iPhone knows the current geographic location. Change the City and Highway setting AUTOMATICALLY FOR THE DRIVER! What gives? FEATURE REQUEST!!! There needs to be a "Home Location" meaning each time I open or close my House Garage Door iRadar alerts me. Why? The app is aware of my GPS coordinates so why can't I tell iRadar to automatically MUTE when I OPEN or CLOSE my own garage each time? Simple stuff that would help a lot.
Please fix ASAP.
I can no longer open the app. I've done everything to try and fix this problem. Please fix...
Just got unit in the mail and the app freeze every time .....really!
After I did update, the app freezes at the opening graphic and does nothing else.
Does not work after up date
Warning!!! Do not update. App Update freezes at opening splash screen on Sep. 2012 iPhone5 running the latest IOS7. Very poor quality control on this software release from Cobra Elecronics.
Since the update, it no longer opens. Please fix ASAP.
It works great, one of the very best items I have ever invested in.
Updated Apple software causes an error in push notification that will not go away
I've own this product now about 4 mths now and the good thing about it is that it's very good at alerting you to camera enforced intersections. The downside is that the radar trips off every time it senses a radar. Example: driving past businesses w/ the commercial roll up doors. Those for some reason trips it off and it I annoying b/c you can't tell if a cop is out there scanning as well.
Good app it seems to work well.
Great app. If they can make it to where your phone vibrates when the radar goes off that would give it 5 stars.
Make then app better
No local speed trap warnings and I live in a major metro area! No help from Cobra either.
This is a great concept. The first app worked so well I bought a second radar unit for another vehicle. Then they offered an upgrade which I loaded. Now the app constantly shuts down after a few minutes of operation. I've tried rebooting, etc. If it worked it would be a great app; it needs debugging. Please fix!
Speed and compass dot ever work. Sometimes when initiating the app it just shuts down, seems to not like to start in landscape mode. Positioning on map is poor.
app will only work sometimes. it will go to load it and never finishes and goes back to the home screen. when it does work it works as described. but when i cant get it to load it may take an hour or so of restarting the app and the ipod until it will finally load. makes no sense.
I bought the iradar 200 in USA but I couldn't use it in Mexico. Do you recommend to keep it because I could use it in a future or return it?, because you are not able to do it for Mexico?
The Cobra iRadar app has made many great improvements. However, I feel it is not reaching its full potential. I would hope in the near future this app will be able to also control the music played off of Pandora. Lastly, I would like to see Cobra iRadar app have the capability to collaborate with Apple Maps app especially when using the navigation. I strongly believe these improvements would be an asset to this already intuitive app.
Seems to be working good now. The only thing I would like to see now is North going up all the time
Great concept! Two features I wish cobra would work on, night mode feature & I wish it was compatible with the Pioneer Appradio (like Escort live).
I've had this app and the new atom radar detector for a few weeks now and it's great when it works. But on my iphone4 a lot of the time it fails to connect and just freezes. I close and restart the app several times and sometime I just give up after several times. I hate when I see a speed trap and I try to report it only to find I can't bc the app is frozen. Please fix this bug!!!!!! Or at least give us a work around until you do.
I guess the app is good as far as radar etc goes but a major hang up is that it stays active and keeps the GPS going on your phone after you exit the app. EXITING THE APP ABSOLUTELY SHOULD SHUT OFF THE GPS ON THE PHONE!!!! What a major power sucker.
How bout a mode to mirror image/reverse the dashboard display so I can throw the iPhone up on the dash and have a head-up-display (HUD) of speed and alerts reflected,off the,windshield. Maybe reverse the map too.
I like it. The idea of a community of users providing real time data is pretty cool. The app needs the following crucial updates........remove the true north setting on the map and allow it to rotate so that your direction of travel is always up like a GPS does; night time mode so that it doesn't blind you either make it a darker background or add the dim option by swiping finger from top to bottom of screen; make the street names a little larger. Very difficult to read. Great radar unit, fix the aforementioned issues and this is a great app.
Maybe it's just me and I'm sure it's an easy 'programming' fix but the direction the map moves is the reverse/opposite of ANY navigation systems I've had. I know it's NOT a Nav Syst BUT the mapping should at least work the same way as it's based on the same GPS. On a Nav Syst, your icon is centered and the map moves down as you pass streets (as if you were moving up on the map)...because you are moving 'forward'. So far it seems, there are no options to change how this map makes it look like you are moving down on the map because the streets move up instead of how they move on a Nav System. It's especially a mind-fcuk if you have a Nav Syst beside the unit and the maps are moving in opposite directions!?!?!?! Super easy fix I'm sure. Somebody in programming needs to pay attention to their Nav Syst or set them side by side in transit and they'll realize this unit is totally BACKWARDS! Simply MUST be fixed.
Since i cant use the app and my GPS app at the same time it would be nice if there was an upgrade to the app that included GPS. Also would like to be able to change the map view while driving
