Cobra iRadar S-Series ($300) differs from previous radar detectors from the company in that it’s designed to be mounted under the hood of the car, away from the eyes of police and potential thieves alike. There’s a Bluetooth interface that enables it to connect to your iPhone, relying on the same app as previous devices to enable users to submit information about speed trap and other radar situations.
Although it’s not the first 3.5mm audio-to-Bluetooth wireless audio adapter we’ve seen, Cobra AirWave ($40) is unique in that it packs a battery, allowing it to be used away from a power source for up to 12 hours. Cobra Electronics packs in the necessary cables, including a line-in audio cable and Micro-USB cord for charging.
