Downloading the App
iRadar Community
To download the app you must enter the
iTunes Store or Google Play and search for
“Cobra iRadar”. Follow the onscreen
instructions to download and install the
Cobra iRadar app.
When you, or any other iRadar user, detects a radar or laser
signal the alert information is anonymously sent to Cobra’s
cloud servers. Within seconds, that information is processed
and displayed on your map as part of a Threat Area.
Cobra iRadar App
The iRadar app is what separates Cobra
from any other detectors out there.

can be accessed from the Menu.
Information on specific settings and
explanations of radar bands can be
found by pressing the
buttons in the
settings menus.
As you approach a specific Threat Area
you will hear a short beep and then the
app will indicate the Cobra’s assessment of the reliability of the threat.

reports have confirmed a legitimate
threat in the area recently.
