Ratings and Reviews
Love the fact that it keeps a log of all the alerts that are set off on your travels. It will also flash Cop Spotted when there is a cop is sitting on the side of the road waiting to get you. Another great feature is that it alerts you for a very good distance from where the cop is actually sitting. The only down fall about this app I feel is that you can set it so that it doesn’t go off with store alarms and things of that nature. I just want it to be registered to go off with police radars, lasers or speed traps only. Other then that the app is very well put together!!
Needs an update badly
This app is badly outdated. No routing function so you have to switch between Google Maps and iRadar. They use an old low resolution format so when an alert comes up you can barely see the map. There are no instructions to indicate how the buttons to mark items work. Also does not base community alerts on the road you are traveling on, so you get lots of alerts from adjacent or crossing roads, including on the highway where this is distracting and dangerous - had to turn off red light canera alerts for this reason. Does not measure speed or speed limit accurately - kept getting over speed limit alerts on the highway when traveling below my speed threshold - system thinks the speed limit suddenly jumps to 35 on a 65 mph interstate - had to turn off that feature, too. About the only thing that works well is that it has the locations of the ubiquitous speed cameras in NYC. Connects to my i480 fine, though will not auto adjust sensitivity for speed and there should be controls for the detector built into the app such as mute. Good idea, weak execution and badly in need of upgrades.
APP update failed 28 Apr 15
Same as every one else updated app 4.1 on 28 Apr and HELLO Black screen. Tried serveral ways of contacting Cobra. Finnally got thru by sending a message on their web site on the 30th of Apr. I heard back 6 May in the evening -new update posted 4.1.1 and APP works again. Just felt left out in the wind a little bit. Cobra needs to work on keeping people posted when things like this happen. I only owned this system for less than a year. My family has several of these units and compared to the escort it is the better deal and better features in my opinion. Glad it works again. Really is a good deal.

Still have my unit and it still works. Wish it was updateable, due to false alerts from newer vehicles with that crash avoidance system. I would buy an newer version if it was offered for the remote mounting S120EU. But I do not see one offered.
