First-of-its-kind driver awareness system, Cobra Road Scout Elite named as Honoree for “In-Vehicle Entertainment and Security” category

CHICAGONov. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Cedar Electronics, home of leading automotive and consumer electronics brands Cobra, ESCORT and Snooper, today announced the selection of the new Cobra Road Scout Elite as a CES 2020 Innovations Award Honoree for “In-Vehicle Entertainment and Security.” The Cobra Road Scout Elite is the first intelligent driver information system in the U.S. to combine a highly accurate, long-range radar and laser detection system and a high-definition dash cam in a single unit.

Awarded to consumer technology products that exhibit outstanding design and engineering, the CES 2020 Innovations Awards “In-Vehicle Entertainment and Security” category specifically recognizes products and components created for in-vehicle entertainment and information systems.

Introduced in June 2019, the Cobra Road Scout Elite is the first product of its kind to marry an integrated dash cam that captures crystal clear, editable video of the road ahead with highly accurate, long-range radar and laser detection sensors that identify live radar-based speed enforcement locations. The hybrid driver awareness system alerts drivers of upcoming red light and speed cameras through the GPS-based Cobra and ESCORT Defender Database, the largest location-based threat map in North America. Drivers also benefit from real-time notifications on road conditions and other events from the greater iRadar connected driving community.

“We created the Cobra Road Scout Elite to give drivers unprecedented peace of mind behind the wheel and we’re thrilled for that vision to be validated with such a prestigious distinction from the Consumer Technology Association,” said Gail Babitt, CEO of Cedar Electronics.
