CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - Cobra Electronics Corporation (NASDAQ: COBR), a leading designer and marketer of award-winning consumer and mobile electronics, today announced that some of its hottest new products for gadget enthusiasts will be featured in the WIRED Store in New York City for the 2011 holiday season. Holiday shoppers can now experience firsthand Cobra's must-have gift ideas at WIRED magazine's seventh-annual WIRED Store at 42nd and Broadway in New York City from November 18 through December 24, 2011, with online shopping available as of November 14th.

Throughout the WIRED Store's five-week run in downtown Manhattan, Cobra Electronics will feature the following award-winning and highly affordable products for gadget lovers:

Cobra iRadar™
The award-winning Cobra iRadar automotive Smart Detection System was the industry's first product to combine industry leading radar/laser detection technology with the power of your smartphone. The second generation of iRadar takes detection to the cloud. The Cobra iRadar Community allows users to report and warn other users of live police, caution areas, and photo enforcement areas in real-time. In addition, when an iRadar detects a safety alert or caution it can automatically share this information with other iRadar Community users nearby.

Cobra Tag™
Misplacing smartphones, keys, laptops and other essentials is inevitable. The new Cobra Tag is a small, sleek key fob device with a free companion smartphone app and uses Bluetooth® wireless technology and a separation alarm to link your valuables to your smartphone -- ensuring Cobra customers never leave their valuables behind. The Cobra Tag system monitors the distance between the phone and tagged items and produces an audible alert if they become separated. What's more, in the event that a valuable possession is left behind, the Cobra Tag app will record the GPS location and time of day the item was lost, and will send this information to a pre-configured contact list via email, text message, or even a linked Facebook or Twitter account.

The seventh annual WIRED pop-up retail store in New York City puts today's hottest products in the hands of holiday shoppers with an interactive gallery and live event space showcasing what's new and next for the holidays. From gadgets, games and gear to apparel and décor, the WIRED Store brings WIRED magazine's cutting-edge style, attitude and technology to life.
