I am surprised by how easy it was to set up and sync with my phone. About 7 minutes from box to function. On my first drive I discovered 4 cameras I did not know existed even though I drive the route twice a day and have been for three years. I am eager to play with the features to see what else it will do. Traffic indicator is excellent, even shows different conditions based on direction of travel on the road. Camera has great resolution and is easy to adjust recording length and edit. I would recommend this unit to anyone.
Cobra has always been the best and I won’t use anything else. I have one of the Roadscout radar detectors and it has saved me hundreds of dollars and it has a dashcam built into it so I don’t care what the other people say or the other companies cobra is the best for this, if this is what you want to buy they’re the best
Move my device. Camera is clear. Radar is great. My only issue is the instructions are are not clear. Had to you tube to fully utilize. Another example is if you car uses car play, can you use the dash cam and you can radio. The quick answer is no. I’m still playing with it but like the combo dash cam/radar device.
Just got a Cobra Road Scout and downloaded both the iRadar and Drive HD Apps. Both fail to connect just about 98% of the time. When I try to view my camera real time through this app it just shows the wheel spinning and then nothing! Then while trying again and waiting, the Road Scout detector/dash cam freezes and I have to pull the power completely and reboot... cannot review any recordings either and just receive random connection errors. Completely unacceptable for what I paid for the Cobra Road Scout.
This app is outdated, it looks like the last update was made back in 2019 according to the App Store. Not to mention, it doesn’t connect to my phone, so I have yet to be able to use part of the features promised by the cobra sc 201. Also, the front end design is poor. A lot of wasted space on buttons and little instructions on how to trouble shoot. The developers of this app needs to do some serious work for it to actually deliver on the features cobra sc 201 is promising its consumers.
After trying a numerous amount of times and waiting almost over 3 weeks for customer support (which still has not emailed me back)I looked up solutions on google and couldn’t find anything. In conclusion, the radar works poorly and I would like for these features to work considering to amount of money I paid. Looking to return this item.
Bought a brand new cobra SC 210. I’d return it if I could, past the date. Won’t connect to my iPhone 11. D/L the Drive Smarter app which did a firmware update. Still won’t connect. Drive Smater app connects but is stupidly slow when accessing the SD card. Can’t get live view to function. I bought cobra for the reputation. Should have gone with a different brand.
I should have read the previous comment first, but I just bought this camera and although it seems to work ok the app does not work at all for me. I spent over an hour trying to connect this app to the camera with no luck at all. I bought the camera because of the ability ( supposedly) to operate the camera thru the app on my phone. It's Sunday so I'll call CS tomorrow and hopefully I'll be able to come back with a better review later UPDATE: I'm not sure what was causing the connection problem before but it's all working great now. I love the camera and being able to watch files on my iPad or iPhone.
Worked perfectly but now won’t work at all. I have been using this device about a month and now I have lost all access to the dash cam features. When I try to connect it says no connection command error. If you can help me fix this I will adjust my review.
I made sure it was on Camera mode. Shot I even tried on radar mode. This thing would not work at all. What a joke. Maybe it’s time to start over with your app and make one that does what it says it does
Dear, I called the cobra customer service about the app last year. They told me IOS 11 doesn’t support the app. That’s apple problem. My Android phone still can connect to the dash cam but not the IPhone anymore. These are really good none stopping dash cam.
I have tried numerous times to talk to Cobra customers service and couldn’t get a straight answer on when the app will be updated to recent IOS. I can’t connect to my phone and that means that my dash cam is useless. The camera notoriously looses time and what good is the recording if the time stamp is wrong. Left messages, made calls- no answer.....
Thanks Apple and Cobra!! Really...I'm being sarcastic here Nothing more frustrating then being forced to update iOS which more and more is becoming like a problematic Windows platform with endless updates all for your "security" & "convenience" to have your settings, preferences, and how to's all change on you... More frustrating is to have your apps no longer function because you were updated without giving the okay. Hey iOS, how about run a app scan BEFORE updating a user's phone to advise of potential apps not functioning correctly or at all...
I think it’s pretty crappy when you buy a dash cam and you update the software on your phone and they don’t update the software on the dash cam app, now it makes it more difficult to save incidents like the one I had last week which was a very bad accident and almost lost the footage.
App is confusing slow, clunky and wont allow Super HD playback or transfer from my cobra cdr-900 The dashcam is a 10 and the app is a 4. I am a truck driver so I bought the cdr900 for the shd and wireless transfer but i am back to ejecting the micro sd, unpack my macbook put sd in macbook then connect it to my phone on wifi to upload to youtube.. Hopefully there will be an update.. Substandard support for a dash cam with a $299.00 MSRP
I have my dash cam from january 2015 work good but now in 12/17/16 the proble is when i selec the online mode on my iphone 6s in the app drive HD close sent my to main screen in my iphone. All was working great before now dont Work they need to update the app i spent alot of money in this keep the system work. Now the only thing working is just dash cam mode.
