Not annoying!

I like the fact that false signals don't keep setting it off like my old detector did. Yes it does work well.

Very sensitive, but mounting issues are irritating.

Crutchfield customer from Homer Glen, IL on 4/12/2021

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It's very sensitive & the K band triggers a lot when there are no police around. So far, no late alarms for actual police. Worst problem with it is that the button to release the detector from the glass mount is so far forward (close to the glass) & difficult to press, that I bend the glass mount every time I remove the unit to hide it (in public parking lots/spaces). I can't simply use the provided Velcro strips, b/c the detector will be blocked by my Hyundai Sonata wipers & hood from the front and the back seat headrests from the rear. I will have to make a "riser" for my dash, but I wish Cobra had thought of this on their own.

Pros: So far no missed police.

Cons: Glass mount release button is terrible!

5 Stars and a HOOAH

This is an awesome electronic devise that is a must have. Cobra has really stepped-up their game and given drivers an advantage to identify speed traps long before you get into range, with loads of user friendly indicators & warnings. As always...Crutchfield is world class in their products, sales and customer service. Highly recommend this radar detector and CRUTCHFIELD. HOOAH!!

Pros: Cobra's state of the art Technology and Crutchfield.

Cons:

Rejects shopping mall false alerts!

Crutchfield customer from Fort Mc Coy, FL on 12/10/2020

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This unit is FAR superior to my (now one year old) unit in my car when it comes to false alerts. I drive by the same stores that always made my last one go off, and it doesn't even peep. I'm not a huge speeder, when I do it's because I'm keeping up with traffic, but the piece of mind this unit gives me is nice to have.

Pros: Excellent false alert rejection.

Cons: None I can think of.

Cobra 480i

The k band is a bit over sensitive. However, the combination of it's sensitivity and networking provides top honors for driving with awareness.
