Cobra Electronics Expands AURA Camera & Driving Hazard Database Line of Products
Standalone GPS Safety Camera Locator now available
NEW YORK (June 10, 2009) --Cobra Electronics (NASDAQ:COBR) today announced the release of the new SL3 GPS Safety Camera Locator with AURA™ Camera & Driving Hazard Database. The SL3 is a standalone GPS-enabled device that warns drivers to thousands of driving threats that include red light cameras, speed cameras and caution areas. These driving threats could cause unintended traffic violations as well as accidents. The SL3 provides drivers with heightened situational awareness--extra help to know what's around them, and what's ahead.
"The SL3 GPS Safety Locator provides a simple, safe way to warn drivers of potential dangers at a price that is less than most traffic violations or deductibles," said Tony Mirabelli, senior vice president of marketing and sales." An audible and visual alert provides the driver added awareness."
Driven by the proprietary AURA database, the SL3 uses a series of LED lights and tones to alert the driver to both the type of threat and its relative proximity. The 3-Zone Notification System escalates the alerts based on the driver's speed ensuring enough time is given before the intersection is reached.
The AURA database stores GPS coordinates of speed and red light cameras and driving hazards. Users can access this database online and download daily updates 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The SL3 Safety Locator connects via USB, synchronizing the coordinates for the most current and accurate camera and dangerous intersection alerts. Drivers can also add up to 1,000 location-based alerts to ensure that they are alerted to temporary or moveable driving threats.
With dedicated professional research teams working out of its Chicago world headquarters, Cobra has succeeded in developing a systematic verification process to minimize false alerts and establish the most dependable database on the market. In North America, Cobra verifies 100 percent of the database's speed and red-light cameras and dangerous intersections by communicating directly with municipal police departments, traffic bureaus, state transportation agencies and proprietary data partners to guarantee that every single alert is accurate.
The SL3 will be on display in the Cobra Booth #C-9 at the CEA Line Show, June 10-11, 2009 in New York, NY. The SL3 is legal in all states and provinces in Canada and has an introductory price of $99.95 that includes one-year of free updates to the AURA database. The SL3 Safety Locator is available now at www.cobra.com.
