What's New in Version 4.0.1

Bug Fixes...

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.

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?


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.

Need ability to use with a real navigation app like Garmin

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.

Great Driving App

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!
