Just finished my review of the new Cobra GPS unit after testing it out the past several weeks
Would love to hear your comments....
Thanks for the review Roy, it was an informative read.
Good write up. I think you should have went with 2 stars. According to the review you were not all that impressed.
Considering that it is a *radar detector* I would've expected a much lower badge rating, considering how badly it fared against the deadly off-axis trap.
so basically, junk like the rest of the cobra line... I'm amazed you gave it 3 stars, 2 is already giving it too much based off your article IMO. Anyways, great writeup.
Good writeup! With the the Cobras poor sensitivity on Ka band, is should at least be quiet, but it's not!
In my past experience, Cobras tend to overfilter, rejecting real LEO signals in the interest of lowering falsing. This is definitely true on my XRS-9300, which is one of my quietest RD's. However, there were several cases where it refused to pick up a legit police radar signal (Ka band) which really concerned me. I since then have stopped using the unit as anything other than a Ka band test droneOriginally Posted by GTO_04
Just 3 star huh?
good write up Roy. I noticed the same thing when I was driving with the unit as well, the falsing on Ka was horrible. That's one quick way to learn to never trust your detector.
