Product Description

Product Description

Cobra ESD 7000 6-Band ESD Radar/Laser Detector

Amazon.com

Amazon.com Product Description Protect yourself from prying radar and intrusive laser detection with the Cobra ESD-7000 radar detector. The six-band device monitors radar from the X, K, and Ka Superwide bands, while also using its 360-degree LaserEye to perceive laser signals from any direction. Should a radar or laser gun be pointed in your direction, the ESD-7000 will alert you immediately, letting you rest easy while cruising through speed traps. In addition, the ESD-7000 is immune to both VG2 and Spectre 1 technologies, making it invisible to officers scanning for radar detectors on the freeway--a common tactic in certain states. Meanwhile, drivers who want to avoid traffic snarls caused by accidents or roadwork will appreciate the Safety Alert function, which scans for emergency vehicles outfitted with Safety Alert transmitters.

An affordable radar/laser detector with reliable and proven performance. Click to enlarge.

Low-profile detector mounts easily on windshield or dashboard. Click to enlarge.

Ultra-bright, easy to read data display.

6 Band Detection
The ESD 7000 detects all four speed monitoring systems plus VG-2 and Safety Alert signals: X Band Radar, K Band Radar, Ka Superwide Radar, VG-2 Alert System, all laser signals, and Safety Alert traffic warning system.

VG-2 Alert
Provides immunity to VG-2 detection. VG-2 is a "detector detector" that works by detecting low-level signals emitted by most radar detectors. Your detector does not emit signals that can be detected by VG-2, but does detect VG-2 signals and will alert you when a device is in use near your vehicle.

UltraBright Data Display
Provides easy recognition of band detected by use of band identification icons.

LaserEye
Provides 360-degree detection of laser signals.

Safety Alert
Warns drivers of the presence and/or approaching emergency vehicles, railroad crossing, and road hazard locations equipped with Cobra's exclusive Safety Alert transmitters.

Auto Mute
Automatically mutes the alert tone for enhanced driver convenience.

City/Highway Modes
Allows the user to select operating mode, reducing the frequency of falsing in densely polulated urban areas.

One-Year Limited Warranty
Enjoy extra peace of mind knowing your detector is backed by Cobra's one-year warranty.

It goes back to city mode when you start up.

I've passed at least one speed trap, at least a dozen state troopers, and an equal number of city police.

I don't speed crazily, but sometimes cop gives a ticket for 7-8 miles above the speed limit.

I've always wanted a radar detector, especially I got pulled over for driving 9miles above the speed limit! After extensive amount of research, I wanted a Valentine 1 (V1) or a Escort Passport since they are supposed to be the best money can buy. One of my friend has a Escort Passport and I've always been very impressed by it, just not the $300 price tag.

So here I am, wanting something that I can't afford. Nobody knows how that feels right? *wink* Then from a deal site I found this Cobra ESD-7000, I read many (75 last time I checked) reviews for this detector and it's got about 4 out of 5 overall rating. For under 50bux, I think this is a risk I am willing to take. It's been about 2 month and a half now, here's my take:

Pros:

1-Very sensitive and alerts before troopers can get a locked reading on you. (which should be the most important thing when you are buying a detector)

2-Good Design and display, V, K, Ka, and Laser (LIDAR) detection, I rarely see any laser warnings but it's good to have it in for future uses.

3-Auto mute system and city mode, which reduces alarm level when you are near an automatic door or other sensors.

4-long cord which enables the detector to be placed in many places in your car, an important thing to watch for is that make sure you place it in a place where it can have a clear view of the rear window, otherwise the 360 degree detection won't work well.

Cons:

1-Sensitive, and none directional warning. I've found myself looking around for cops when that thing goes off, it only tells you there is one near by, but not which direction. V1 can warn you of which direction and what type of warning it is (false alarm).

I got this radar detector about 3 months ago at target. i was a bit skeptical at first, due to the price of this unit. it mounts on your windshield/dashboard with included suction cups/velcro pads.

this detector has saved me several tickets, and is very accurate. i would reccommend this to anyone!

just remember if the cop doesn't have the radar ON, the detector will not alert you.

this unit looks and performs nicely. not bad for under 50 bucks!

It's basic, which is what i wanted. Some ppl want one that goes off if they discover life on mars, with a little arrow pointing there, but i don't care. It's all black, no funky chrome so it blends well. it's pretty sensitive, which is not bad, but be ready to hear it go off around some stores.

Verified Purchase
For those who don't have alot of cash to blow on a radar detector but still would like to try one out. I had read alot of reviews about this dector, many people either hated it or loved it. I found that it worked but it also had plenty of false alarms.

If you can't stand being beeped at every few minutes down the freeway, then I would steer clear of this one. The detector does have a Auto-Mute setting on by default so the sound it much lower after 4 seconds. Also the detector doesn't save your settings everytime you turn it off but it is so easy to get to the settings that you need, that it really is not a problem.

The radar has caught all of the radar on the side of the road so it does it's job. You can't rely on this product to get you out of all tickets because many times cops will not run radar but as long as you don't plan on being a total speed demon you will be fine.

The radar detector does it's job, perhaps too well, so if you are short on cash and want to get a radar dector, this would be the one to get.

This unit is cheap junk as is any detector you pay $40 for. It's just basic economics. No company is going to be benevolent and give you expensive technology for dollar store prices. I've had this unit for more than a week just for fun and it's hilarious how little it picks up. I've passed at least one speed trap, at least a dozen state troopers, and an equal number of city police. Amazingly, the whole time I've had only two hits. One was an X band constant on radar that any detector built in the last 30 years would have got and the other was a K band constant on hit that I didn't pick up until the cop was practically parked on my windshield. Good thing he was outside his jurisdiction and that I don't speed.

Notice a lot of folks have stopped using detectors because they "just don't help anymore." Well, it's because Cobra units like this have saturated the low end of the marketplace and they are JUNK. Really folks, there is a big three of radar detectors, Bel, Escort, and Valentine. Whistler also makes a couple of new units that are right in the low $100 range and are your only hope for good detection if you aren't willing to spend around $300. Go to any site that does testing of Cobras and even their priciest units just aren't worth the money. I have no axe to grind with Cobra. I wish they made better products. I had to see for myself if the low end units were as weak as I've read. Well, they are. All this unit will do, if you're lucky, is let you know you're about to get a ticket unless you're on a straight away in heavy traffic and encountering a policeman using a radar gun using very old technology. But you may not even be lucky enough for that to happen and just see flashing lights behind you.
