Company Offers Three New Drive HD Dash Cam Models for Advanced Vehicle Security, Safety and On-the-Road Connectivity

CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Cobra Electronics Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced the general availability of the newest Drive HD™ Dash Cams by Cobra; the Cobra CDR 820, CDR 840 and CDR 900. Drive HD Dash Cams continuously record video of the road ahead of you, serving as the perfect eyewitness in the event of traffic incidents, while also providing peace-of-mind and an extra sense of security for drivers. With Drive HD Dash Cams, you'll never miss a moment.

All models in the new Drive HD™ Dash Cam series are designed in compact form factors and utilize Continuous Loop Recording, which automatically overwrites the oldest footage when the memory card gets full. Each model also features a motion sensor for automatic recording while driving, as well as a G-Sensor, which senses sudden acceleration and collisions to automatically capture and protect critical footage surrounding an accident. All Drive HD Dash Cam models feature a minimum of 1080P Full HD Video and include an 8GB memory card so that they are ready to use straight out of the box.

The series' Wi-Fi enabled flagship model, CDR 900, goes the next step in video capture and sharing through the free Cobra Drive HD™ App. Wi-Fi functionality allows the user to connect and stream live and recorded footage directly to the user's iOS or Android device to instantly view and share footage. Through the Cobra Drive HD App, users can remotely command their CDR 900 to start recording, as well as control its settings through the app's easy-to-use menus. Through Cloud Mode, users can view their camera in real-time from their smartphone anywhere in the world. In addition to innovative features, the CDR 900 captures amazing 1296P Super HD or 1080P HD video using an Ambarella™ A7LA chipset to ensure high-quality imaging, even during nighttime.

"The road can be a crazy place, and Cobra's updated line of Drive HD™ Dash Cams are the perfect road companion for a driver's added peace-of-mind and sense of security," said Sally Washlow, president of Cobra Electronics. "Our new line of HD Dash Cams serve as the perfect watchdog for our customers while driving; recording every ride so that good, bad or totally strange, drivers never miss a moment."
