I have my cobra iradar mounted under the nose and wired in a power socket. The radar power plug has a usb plug on it so I wired a usb to charge my phone. On the phone I have an app that is bluetoothed to the radar and dislays my GPS speed, gives alerts and has a map of where the coppers have been (aura system). The alerts for the radar are then bluetoothed to an earpiece in my helmet. take that, Bond! Its saved me numerous times

I am 100% looking into this hahahahaha. A little skeptical that you can get the cobra iradar so cheap haha. my escort was like $500

Thanks!!! Exactly what I needed to hear....


Edit: Looks like this guy is waterproof too!!! https://www.cobra.com/products/cobra-iradar/s120r Now I just need to find out if you are legally allowed to mount a phone on a bike and use the maps. if not then this would just be a way to transmit to the helmet (pretty sure that's not allowed in VA either)[/QUOTE

Breaking the law, breaking the law :dance:
I was surprised by the price also, ive had it for a couple years and im pretty happy with it. You get to chose which alerts you want also, which is cool. Have you checked out the app??

ill post a couple pics. I rode to work so I just took a couple to show you.

The phone is mounted with a ram mount and is fastened in to the clipon. Works quite well, while riding I can see all my gauges just past the phone. I can also say that my stock speedo is way off! approx 5mph. and more at higher speeds

The radar is mounted using the windshield mount. I took the suction cups off and fastened them with nuts n bolts to the plastic wind deflector down there. The industrial bungee you see is to secure the radar from bouncing because the mount clips into the radar at the front. The cord works great and is completely stable and solid.

I will say this, I hit a nasty pot hole which cracked the finish on the edge of the kevlar and carbon fender (GRRRR) But that wasnt the worst, the bent rim sucked pretty bad! Cheers to Wills rim repair in SC.

Mine doesnt have the display on it either. On the unit itself is a red light (facing the motor) and it turns blue when the BT is connected. I turn the volume down on it so noone hears the beep when the ignition is turned on. To have the phone in your pocket will work too, a voice comes on in the ear piece and says the alert "K Alert." No beeping FTW

Those look sweet! Ive been pondering a dual earbud set up but I like the single ear bud so I can hear everything else around me.

I have a single ear bud that I can put on either side, its a Plantronics Marquee2. Its small and comfortable. Man... I really like the looks of those JBL buds... I bet they sound good

2.5 hrs is terrible! mine gets 7hrs talk time. Its not big, only like 3inches long by 1inch high and doesnt pertrude from the ear. fits really nicely in the open padded area of the helmet.

Ill be interested in your findings of an ear piece.

the radar is held in really well by the bracket it comes with, which is bolted to the middle plastic pc that is level with and in front of the lower triple. It peaks past the nose perrrfectly. couldnt be happier with the setup. well, a jammer would be nice.
