Here's a gadget for those who learned to drive by watching Mad Max. Cobra's latest radar detector picks up on standard radar and laser guns used by The Man in speed enforcement. But it also has a GPS and a database of known speed traps and red light cameras. That's good for slowing down before John Q. Law pegs you with his speed guns, and for knowing which red lights are "safe" to run.
As a guy who drives like a complete A-hole, I have to say, I've got mixed feelings about this device. No matter how rushed I am, I don't run red lights — Did you know that T-boning, along with spins, lead to the most fatalities on the road. Well, next to my friggin road rage that is.
Anyhow, the radar detector also uses the GPS to detect the car's speed, and mute the alarms if you happen to be driving the speed limit.
