Questions & Answers

Can you describe the contents of ?

This is the basic detector as you see it, with the power cord attached to the cig lighter and the 12vdc round power connector on the other end. False alarms are rejected without any problems. Police radars can be detected without any problems. I thought the money was very well spent.

Are you able to connect your phone to it via Bluetooth so that you can use the iRadar app?

There is an iRadar app that works with it.

Can the cobra rad 450 360° coverage & ivt filter be used on iOS devices?

In short, yes. Due to radar's use of radio waves that bounce around the environment, all detectors will detect radar in 360° (just as a The radar sources that are indicated by arrows on 360 detectors are located on the back side of the detector. In the RAD 450, there are no arrows to indicate which way to go. There is an IVT filter available on the RAD 450. There are many radar-based vehicle safety systems that it filters out.

Selected User Reviews For Cobra RAD 450 Laser Radar Detector: Long Range, False Alert Filter, Voice Alert & OLED Display, Black, RAD450

It's fantastic As you read the review, you will see why people gave themselves 1 star
5/5

There are no issues with radar/laser detectors and this one does its job perfectly. The device is extremely accurate and has a great reach. There are some who gave it a 1 star rating because it didn't recognize This is due to the fact that not all cops are wearing their radars all the time. The police are highly trained to identify the average speed of a car by looking at it. It will not be detected if the officer does not have his radar on. There is no way for radar detectors to detect a vehicle whose engine is not running. The unit will not beep indicating that there is a The equipment has been tested on various speed detection devices and various bands since I come from a family of town cops and state troopers. It found every single one of them before the cop cars' detectors even scanned me, giving me plenty of time to consider my next move. Generally speaking, the back scanner of the device works just as well provided it is able to view the back clearly. Police sometimes use laser detectors to measure speed, but they have to be parked and not moving for the detectors to work. Since the laser beam is very narrow and small, it must hit the car directly on the windscreen in order to register a speed, resulting in 80% more accuracy when measuring speed. To get the maximum benefit from this detector, it should be mounted at the bottom center of your windshield. Most speed trap lasers are placed at the bottom center of a car's hood to maximize accuracy, which means the laser will always point towards the front bumper or hood of your vehicle. A device on the bottom of the center will give you a higher chance of getting a warning 90 percent of the time. There is a large distribution of radio waves with the radars the police use, making it easy for a radar detector to pick up on. The coolest thing about this detector is that it has an incredible system for determining whether or not there is a cop nearby or if it is just a door nearby. Since I've had my gauge in town, I've never received a false reading unless I turned the sensitivity way up. Finally, let me add the claim that highway readings are faked. To begin with, there are speed cameras hidden in the road. Second-hand cars or mini trucks can cause it to set What's the reason? It happens because most new cars and almost all semi-trucks have radar systems that detect other cars in the vicinity in order to send you an alert when to merge over or to swerve. In trucks and cars, these radar systems generally use a K band signal at 24 GHz. It can almost always be set off by passing a railroad crossing. The train conductor is alerted by radar when cars approach to blow the horn and lower the arms to let him know when to blow the horn and lower the arms. Although the signal varies from state to state, about 98% of South Carolina's railway systems use the X band.

I hope this review was helpful, but it was just to explain the detector to everyone in a thorough way. Thank you!.

This is amazing
5/5

The radar detector I purchased in May 2018 is my first and I will keep it as my only radar detector for some time. It takes me about 10+ over 40 mph to drive to Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida on highways, interstates, and back roads when I drive an FJ Cruiser.

I also bring it with me when traveling. GOOD I have used this app a couple of times, keeping in mind that the very long alert has saved me a few times from not noticing police behind hills and such, while still being able to see other drivers' reactions near hills. My sensitivity is set to the highest and I only get a few alerts randomly Once I've driven with it for a while, I've learned how to tell a real signal from a false signal based on the strength and type of signal it receives. The radar detector does not detect other signals from the car, such as blind spots. It also does not transmit any signal to the police indicating its use. The value/dependability of the system If this thing hadn't alerted me quickly, I would have been stopped at least ten times by cops blocking medians and driving behind hills, but this thing alerted me very quickly and allowed me to determine if the stop was true and slow down as such. In addition to a dash cam I have written a review about (Garmin 55), this is one of the best accessories I have purchased for driving. The usability of the application Whenever my journey is longer than 20 minutes or takes me through unfamiliar roads that I am not familiar with, I use Waze. My battery has been sitting in the sun on my truck since I bought it for a while with temperatures ranging from 110 to 0F since I bought it. It starts every time I turn it on and only shuts off if the truck's battery voltage drops enough to damage it. When a signal is detected, the screen is bright but gradually dims after a few minutes. The wiring and mounting of the device must be done In addition to the hard-wiring kit, I also bought an add-on I inserted a fuse in addition to a custom switch, so I can turn it on at the flick of a switch without reaching and turning a dial This also has the advantage of keeping the suction cup from coming off in the heat, making it more obvious, and lowering the likelihood for police to have a reason to pull me over since I don't use them. I have left the dial at the 6 on- the light is on- Since I hardwired a switch, my volume has always been in the same position. *Note on noise My first encounter with the laser feature was on a Florida highway, and I was pleasantly surprised at how it sounded like a retro laser. I haven't heard it again since then. This is BAD I can't think of anything bad about it, aside from the fact that it uses a 12 volt dvd player style plug as opposed to a mini usb or a more common plug. In fact, it does have a microUSB connection on the side, which I just realised. However, I have not really been able to figure out why it might need to connect to a computer. I love this radar detector on the whole. It is just right in terms of sensitivity, and it can be adjusted to fit your needs. It has saved me plenty of times, and its value surpassed by tenfold at least by the amount of times I could've gotten into trouble without it. If you know what you're doing, it is very simple to wire and mount. Radar detector works well for a first time.

This junk will set you back $49 if you buy it
3/5

To use it, you need to subscribe to the APP for 99 dollars a year! The trip began with a happy sigh when I received my radar detector before I set out on the 1000-mile trip. Despite my best efforts at pairing this piece of junk with the Bluetooth in my car, I was unable to complete pairing it, so it will NEVER work! I had to buy an app to sync it with my phone and this piece of junk, so it would work on both. That $49 was necessary only because I had to buy an APP to synchronize it with my iPhone. You can get a 99-month membership for just 99 dollars! My personal dislike of bait and switch is anything from any source, especially when the source has just finished selling you something that was supposed to work in a certain way like what he sold you in As a result, I returned this piece of junk and bought another radar detector from a DIFFERENT company for about the same price, but that has a greater range of detection, detects more frequencies with almost no false alarms, and most importantly, nobody took advantage of me! I have a new radar detector I've purchased from Uniden called the DFR7
Do your research before buying. However, you might have to pay more than $49 for this piece of junk. You can either pay $4 a year or 99 cents a year. Every month you use it, it will cost you 99 cents! Avoid it at all costs.
