Spectre I and VG-2 Undetectable
The XRS 9955 provides complete immunity to Spectre I and VG-2 radar detector-detectors.

Car Battery Voltage Display/Low Car Battery Warning
Provides approximate voltage of your car's battery and also alerts you whenever your car battery voltage falls below 11.9 volts.

Detection
The XRS 9955 provides 15-band detection: 7 radar, 6 laser, and 2 safety signals. Radar signals include X Band, K Band, Ka Superwide, Ku Band, VG-2, Spectre I and Spectre IV+. Laser signals include LTI 20-20, Ultra Lyte, ProLaser, ProLaser III, Stalker LIDAR and Speedlaser. Safety signals include Safety Alert and Strobe Alert.

It also detects the latest POP Mode Radar Gun (Super-fast Instant-On Mode) as well as Ku Band Radar Guns currently being used in Europe. Be prepared for future introduction in the United States. And when it comes to LaserEye, the XRS 9955 provides 360-degree detection of laser signals.

IntelliMute Pro
The relative speed-sensing auto shutdown feature will render your detector undetectable by currently available radar detector-detectors.

Strobe alert, a Cobra exclusive, works with tens of thousands of emergency vehicles currently equipped with traffic light controlling strobe emitters. It provides advance warning of the presence and/or approach of emergency vehicles.

With safety alert, you'll be warned of the presence and/or approaching emergency vehicles, railroad crossing, and road hazard locations equipped with Cobra's exclusive Safety Alert transmitters.

With Spectre Alert I/IV+, you'll be alerted when you are under surveillance of Spectre I/IV+ radar detector-detectors.

The Cobra XRS-9955 provides very decent K/Ka Detection, definitely notice an improvement from the Cobra 9950 that I owned. During a driving test with my friend, it seemed to performed about the same level (in term of sensibility and number of false reading) as his Beltronics Pro GX65, a detector that costs twice as much as the Cobra. However, we did noticed the XRS-9955 is a bit slow to react and alert to instant-on radar. The Whistler Pro and Valentine One performed noticeably better in this area, but again they cost much more. The Cobra 9955 is a good choice for the money.

Cobra XRS 9955 Voice Alert 15 Band Radar/Laser Detector with 1.5-Inch Full Color Display and Upgradeable Red Light/Speed Features
In the past I have had 3 other Cobra Radar Detectors so I was excited to get this one. I installed it in my car in the morning and by noon a bright blue line appeared across the display. The line stays there at all times when the unit is on and wont go away. Before I returned the unit I did some research and about 1/3 to 1/2 of the reviewers of similar Cobra units had screen failures of some kind. I wish I could buy the unit with all of the features without the failing display.

The product worked normal for couple months and then a blue streak/line appeared in center from top to bottom of the display screen. The line does not go away even after turning device on/off several times. Left device off for few days, still the line appeared when I plugged and turned on the device. Previously had voice-alert Cobra radar and after few years, the speaker started to crackle everytime it announced the alerts. Was hoping for better performance and luck with this device, but faulty display makes Cobra products less appealing to me now. Past the product return window, so unfortunately cannot return product. Very disappointed in this product due to display problem.

I like having a large display screen. Got to admit it does look a little like a feeding whale but you have the option of leaving it dark. I like it on because I do switch between city and highway modes and with a quick look I can see whats on. I get very few false alerts. It found a motorcyle cop a mile and a half away in heavy traffic. The instructions for setting the compass are not correct, but easily handled by reading the screen. Very user friendly. Love the screen!!! I would definitely recommend it.

The product is all it is supposed to be. Great price compared to other on-line offers. My only problem with it is the poor instructions. Needed to explain steps a little better and not concern themselves with saving on paper.

Well, I read about the view screens crashing on this model but so far so good. Now I've never been accused of being in the league with Einstein and those guys but here's my thinking. You can set the view mode so that there is just a small blinking square. The rest of the screen is black. When a sensor is activated the screen wakes up and informs you of what caused activation. The screen stays on as long as the threat is active. You can set this wake mode to stay on after the threat has been neutralized anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds I believe. At which point the 'screen saver' mode re-engages. That's my thinking. Use this 'screen saver' mode as such.

The range on this unit is good. I drive just under 50,000 miles a year. Speed limits to me are dictated by my experience with the given road and safety. Posted speed limits do not always reflect this. So I speed - sometimes. I have been spared three tickets my first two months of ownership. Not bad really. The only problem with the unit is the 'pop' mode. It seems to be a bit overly sensitive. For that reason I keep it deactivated. The default setting is deactive. Maybe that's why.

Finally, it is fairly easy to use except when you set up the electronic compass. That takes a bit of navigating. It is a good idea to hold on the instructions until you know how to do this. I set up the compass okay. When I went to Virginia I unplugged the unit and put it away. When I got back in Maryland and reconnected it, the compass was no longer accurate. Since I use it in screen saver mode anyway, I did not bother to reset it.
