The Cobra XRS 9970G radar detector is a top of the line, GPS enabled, touch screen radar detector. Improving on previous models, the 9970G is easy to use thanks to a full color touch screen interface.

Through the use of GPS and Cobra’s AURA™ database (free subscription to the AURA™ database service included) you will be alerted to area speed and red light cameras. The XRS 9970G has the ability to alert the driver when approaching fixed red light, speed, and photo radar cameras. This database is maintained by Cobra, and updates can be downloaded online. The GPS functionality also enables a display that shows your current speed, and a GPS based compass (instead of magnetic). The GPS Locator module is compact and easy to remove, making updating very easy. Just remove the GPS Locator Unit from the detector and plug it in to the USB port on your PC. This is a great feature that many other detectors do not have, instead the entire detector has to be completely removed in order to be updated.

The XRS 9970G uses the extra large 1.5" full color ExtremeBright DataGrafix™ OLED display. This large, graphical display allows the detector to provide a truly easy to use settings interface, along with simple to understand warnings. Because it is a touch screen, it is easy to change settings and configure to your driving preferences.

The Cobra XRS 9970G 15 band™ radar detector features Cobra's S-XRS Technology, which provides improved range over past Cobra models. In addition, the Cobra 9970G provides voice alerts, and includes a built-in 8 point electronic compass.

The XRS 9970G radar detector features an intuitive IntelliMute™ feature which will automatically mute the detector based on your speed. This model will also detect POP radar, provides a voltage meter, and even has built-in support for the Ku band which is currently used in Europe.

The Cobra XRS 9970G responds to all types of radar currently in use by police, and provides 360 degree detection of all types of laser guns laser. The XRS-9970G also provides detailed messages from Cobra's exclusive Safety Alert® and Strobe Alert warning systems. The Cobra XRS-9970G is immune to the VG-2 radar detector detector, and provides alerts when VG-2 is in use.

Cobra's Strobe Alert will alert motorists to over 50,000 emergency vehicles equipped with strobe transmitters that activate red lights at traffic intersections in emergency high speed situations. Call your local Fire/Police department for your area coverage.
