Product Description

Product Description

High quality cobra radar, 360 degrees, 6 bands

Amazon.com

The ESD 7100 is an affordable radar/laser detector with reliable and proven performance. This 9-band unit detects all radar frequencies and laser signals currently used in United States and Canada. It comes with the UltraBright Data Display and much more.

An affordable 9-band detector with proven performance.

Band identification icons let you know which band is detected.

Includes suction bracket for easy windshield mounting.

Nine-Band Protection
The ESD 7100 provides detection and separate alerts for radar signals (X, K and Ka bands, with signal strength indicated), laser, VG-2, and detector-detector signals.

LaserEye Technology
Cobra's LaserEye provides 360-degree detection of laser signals.

VG-2 Undetectable
Provides complete immunity to VG-2 radar detector-detectors, making your device "invisible" but still alerting you to their use.

Instant-On Ready
Detects radar guns with "instant-on" (very fast) speed monitoring capabilities, thanks to ultra-sensitive K-band detection.

Tone Alerts
A distinctly different Alert tone is used for each type of signal detected (including separate tones for each laser signal). For X, K and Ka bandradar signals, the tones will repeat faster as you approach the signal source. The repeat rate of the tones gives you useful information about the signal detected.

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

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

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.

Manual Mute Or Auto Mute
Set the Auto Mute function to automatically mute alert tones after initial warning, to avoid annoyance.

Simple Mounting
The ESD 7100 mounts easily on your windshield or dashboard with the included suction mount, and is powered via your vehicle's cigarette lighter adapter.

What's in the Box
ESD 7100 Detector Unit, Straight 12V DC Power Cord, Windshield Mounting Bracket with suction cups, Instruction manual

Customer Reviews

This radar detector works very well.
Kenny
It picks up the cop after you already see him or literally 1 second before he comes around the corner- not giving you enough time to even slow down.
Jeff
It does get false signals from stores automatic door openers, but a particular alert goes off to store automatic door openers.

I purchased two of these inexpensive radar detectors for my wife and kid's cars, mostly to keep them from getting tagged on a photo radar ticket for $80. The Cobra works pretty well with a couple of glaring problems. Mainly, the L or Laser alert falses all of the time and, seemingly, for no reason. The alarm will sound in strange places like parking lots, side streets, and alleys. I'm pretty sure there's no Laser-sighted radar being used in my alley. Each of the bands has a different sounding alarm, which is good, except they all sound like a something from a 1980's arcade game. I've compared the performance of the Cobra to my Escort Solo and the Cobra is definitely less sensitive. My Escort picked up a photo radar van from more than a half a mile away, while the Cobra was nearly in sight of the van. Still, the alarm was early enough to slow down before getting a ticket. Of course, the best thing about the Cobra is the price. It's an amazing value for a relatively sophisticated detector. If all you're looking for is a little extra help spotting the occassional speed trap, then the Cobra will get the job done, as long as you're aware of the limitations. Serious speeding should be left to the pricier Escorts, Valentines, and Beltronics.

When I bought this radar detector I was at first questioning it because it was the cheapest one and a few days went by where I seen no cop and I wasnt sure if it was working, until I was coming home from my girl friends house at around 1:30 in the morning and it started beeping, I slowed down and looked around and seen no lights and I thought I was the only one on the road then I started goin down a big hill and it stoped beeping then as I got back up the other side of the hill it started beeping again so I thought the thing was junk then the radar dector started going nuts and then I seen the cop sitting off to the side with all its lights off (which is allowed in the state of Indiana) and was happy that I had the radar detector, because I would of probably gotten a speeding ticket. I figured the radar detector picked up the cop about a mile before I seen him so all in all it was a great purchase and I am very pleased with it.

I like it so far, it beeped sufficiently ahead of time before I actually saw the police car. There are some false alarms but that is to be expected in the city & is not a big deal. For $40, I must say I am quite satisfied with this product.

I have four vehicles that I am "accountable" for. With the latest addition of number four came my fourth Cobra and the latest technology with 9 bands. I like things simple and effective. This has the same mount, the same jack input and the basically the same simple functionality as the other three. It is a little more precise as it can pick up a signal a bit quicker than the three year old one I also have.
My thinking right or wrong:
They all work extremely well for my needs from a 911 to a Standard Company Issued Impala
The total of all four detectors was under $200.
Someone will think twice about breaking a window and stealing a $40 Price Brand Cobra given the risk for return on a resale is limited to 10 bux maybe??
I like the Cobra line of detectors!

It gives an accurate reading every time. Volume adjustment in case I'm listening to music, and clear bright lights. :)

At the outset, I must clarify that I bought this as an insurance against Traffic "Tickets". An insurance premium as you would be aware is a "Sunk" cost and it benefits only when there is an unforeseen event.
Therefore, I did not want to spend too much on this equipment (which i was not sure of how it worked. The price was therefore very reasonable.
However, I am not sure if it works effectively.
Firstly whether it is in City Mode or Highway Mode, it does generate high no. of false alerts.
Secondly, there have been umpteen instances wherein we have passed by "cop" cars, but it did not beep! Now one could argue that the radar was possibly not switched on!!! I have no way of disproving that theory. I must confess that there were possibly 2-3 instances when it beeped when we were close to a cop car.

All in all, I would like to say, i use it as an insurance in the hope that I would have recovered my investment even if it helps me prevent a ticket even once!

I bought this as a necessity more than anything, mainly due to my very heavy foot. The radar detection range is excellent and provides plenty of notice. The detector has only "failed" me two times. One being a direct LIDAR hit which I was alerted to but it was too late at 16mph over. You CAN NOT BEAT A DIRECT LIDAR HIT! The only chance you have against LIDAR is by picking up "scatter" (not likely within 1000ft), or god forbid, by not speeding. The second time was when I was hit by radar within 50 ft coming over a hill doing 34mph over (to which the cop graciously reduced to 24mph to save me from a reckless driving charge/arrest). At first I thought my detector had broken, but the volume had been turned down all the way by me earlier because a certain part of town has a strong microwave tower nearby which can't be silenced with the city mode. Actually I'm convinced that city mode does nothing, but I'd rather be annoyed than have to pay a ticket.
