    Arrow Future Cobra Radars

    When is Cobra releasing all new models? Is there a website to check for upcoming future releases? Will Cobra ever add the feature that let's you know the speed limit of the road or highway you are on?

    Generally cobras are not something that is looked into by the industry due to their poor performance. Cobra however was recently bought by the same company that owns Escort radar detectors. So perhaps some of escorts guts will make their way to the cobra detectors and they will improve.

    That said, I don't think I've ever heard of anyone knowing of future cobra releases for the reasoning above. I would suggest looking into other detectors personally as the value is not there with cobra currently.

    They're coming, trust me on this one.

    Cobra has gotten a bad rap (and for a time, it was well deserved, but no longer). The time of Ka false causing Cobras has been long long gone, but the misperception persists nonetheless. The last two iterations of their top models have not been bad at all, IMO.

    I believe your assertion too about certain "Cedar" technology making its way into future Cobra models, as certain Cobra attributes have actually been making their way into Escort's products! Just check out the new iX. The top menu buttons closely resemble both in look and feel the 7800 and 9200BT Cobra detectors and I believe Cobra has the best tactile feel in the business, irrespective of price or mfr.

    Things should certainly be looking up for them.

    I believe they usually unveil new products at the SEMA show in early November. They usually go on sale by the beginning of the next year. If you can navigate it, you can search the FCC's website, where manufacturers have to file tests for Part 15 compliance that typically shows basic pics or schematics. Or at least it used to....haven't kept up with it too closely in about 5 years, lol.

    Anything new to look forward from Cobra? I have used Cobra radars and they provide great value dollar for dollar.
