Our take on the Cobra Vedetta SLR 600

by Dominic Devito
Cobra

Drive more confidently with a trustworthy protector

Cobra's Vedetta SLR 600 radar detector makes it easy to avoid potential travel pitfalls. It features long-range protection against incoming threats with Cobra's latest detection system. And you'll enjoy the wealth of information that you can see on the adjustable 2.4" color display from nearly any position on your dash or windshield.

This lookout's got you covered

Did you know that "Vedetta' is Italian for "lookout"? You can travel without trepidation as this sentinel keeps you well aware of what lies ahead. The SLR 600 features Cobra's most powerful radar and laser detection technology, capable of sniffing out X, K, Ka, and Ku bands for up to 9 miles ahead of your car. And ultra-fast warnings ensure you'll have plenty of time to react.

Selectable color options

The SLR 600's informative 2.4" TFT color LCD screen lets you complement your car's interior lighting with multiple color themes. The screen swivels on a multi-axis hinge that allows 270 degrees of vertical movement and 60 degrees of horizontal adjustment. The detector itself offers a ball-socket mounting bracket for maximum versatility when placing it in your car. Whether you mount it on the windshield or dash, you'll be able to position the screen for easy viewing. The display features seven convenient touch controls for easy access to settings and menu functions.

If you're worried about getting lost, the built-in 8-point electronic compass display will help you get your bearings. As you drive, you'll also see your current filtering mode (city or highway), vehicle battery voltage, and your mute settings. When a radar signal is detected, you'll see its band type, signal strength, and frequency on the screen. Detection of a laser signal gives you the pulse rate. You can program the detector to give you voice alerts to help you keep your eyes on the road. When you're not using the detector, you can fold up the screen to keep it out of your line of sight.

Reduced false alerts

The SLR 600 helps you combat false alerts and other annoyances. IntelliShield™ city filtering works on four selectable levels to rule out automatic door and garage opener signals and keep you free from unwanted alerts. IntelliMute™ speed-based sensitivity uses your engine's RPMs to determine if you should hear an alert or not, based on how fast you are going.

Highlights:

  • radar/laser detector
  • suction-cup windshield mount, dashboard fastener, and ball-and-socket mounting bracket
  • straight power cord
  • 2.4" TFT color LCD screen with touch controls includes voltage meter and compass heading
Protection:
  • detects 4 radar bands (selectable) and 10 laser bands

Features

Vedetta Series: The Cobra SLR 600 is part of the Vedetta Ultimate Detection Systems Series. It detects all radar guns and laser guns in use today. This new series offers a 30% increase in performance over Cobra's previous flagship model. The Vedetta Series provides a 2.4" color LCD display, and a new adjustable mount.

2.4" LCD Display: The SLR 600 features a 2.4" LCD screen with an easy-to-glance graphical display to help you keep your eyes on the road. The display is mounted on a ball-socket suction cup bracket, allowing you to mount the detector virtually anywhere on the dash or windshield. The display can be rotated 270 degrees vertically, allowing you to choose a flip-up or a flip-down position, and turn the display 60 degrees for best visibility from the driver's seat. The orientation of the display can easily be set to match the mounting position. If desired, you can mount the display on the dash using the provided self-adhesive hook-and-loop fasteners.

Touch-Point Controls: The display has touch point controls on the outer edges of the screen that light up automatically to show you available options. The controls include Volume (1-7), Display Brightness (1-5) Left/Right Scroll, City/Highway Mode, Color Themes, Select, and Menu/Save & Exit.

Color Themes: The unit offers a variety of color themes to match your vehicle's instrument lighting. You can select from blue, green, orange, red, white, and multi.

Compass: The SLR 600 offers an 8-point magnetic compass to provide the directional heading of the vehicle. The compass must first be calibrated prior to initial use.

Screen Indicators: The Standby screen will indicate the compass heading, vehicle battery voltage, city/highway mode, and the IntelliMute status. During a Radar alert, the screen shows the Radar band type, frequency, and signal strength in numerals and bar graph. With Laser signals, the screen will indicate "Laser" and the pulse rate (100, 125, 130, 200, 238, or 340).

Audible Alerts: In addition to visual alerts, the unit provides audible alerts. The audible alerts can be set to tone or voice.

Vehicle Battery Voltage: The SLR 600 monitors the voltage of the vehicle's battery, and displays the voltage in the Standby Screen. The unit will alert you if the battery voltage drops below 11.9 volts. The low battery warning can be turned on or off in the Alert Settings menu.

Radar Alert Settings: The SLR 600 lets you customize the detector to suit your needs. Each of the four radar bands (X, K, Ka, and Ku) can be toggled on or off.

Note: Laser monitoring cannot be turned off.

IntelliShield: Quad-level IntelliShield provides protection against false alerts from Automatic Door Openers and other devices which operate in the X and K-band frequencies. to minimize unwanted false alerts in a city environment, you can select one of the following city modes:

  • City X: automatically mutes X-band audible alert until signal strength reaches level 3 or above.
  • City X+K: combined with City X, automatically mutes K-band audible alerts until signal strength reaches level 2 or above.
  • City X+K+Ka: combined with City X+K, automatically mutes Ka-band audible alerts until signal strength reaches level 2 or above.
  • City Max: Maximum filtering against urban false signal sources.

IntelliMute: IntelliMute allows you to avoid audible alerts you don't need to hear because you are either stopped or moving slowly. By sensing the RPMs of the engine, IntelliMute knows that you are driving at a low speed and automatically mutes all alerts (except for strobe signals from emergency vehicles). You must first set an activation point for your engine's RPMs, and when the revs go below that point, IntelliMute begins muting. Once set, the activation point is stored in memory.

Smart Power: The SLR 600 is powered by a 6' straight cord that plugs into your vehicle's cigarette lighter or 12-volt power adapter. The SmartPower feature, when activated, puts the unit into Standby mode for about 15 minutes after the car's engine has been turned off. After 30 minutes in Standby mode, the unit will automatically shut off.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Works great, haven't heard any complaints from the wife (I purchased it for her). And best yet, I haven't had to pay any speeding tickets so far.
