For over 40 years, Cobra Electronics Corporation has been a leading global manufacturer of innovative mobile communication, marine and navigation products. Building upon its leadership position in the two-way radio, radar/laser detection and citizens band radio industries, Cobra boldly entered two new growth markets, mobile navigation and marine, over the last few years.
Today, Cobra products are readily available in nearly 40,000 storefronts in North America, and in a growing network of international markets.
In 2004, as one of the early entrants into the portable navigation category, Cobra introduced its first in-car GPS Navigation system, the NAV ONE 3000. This portable, easy-to-use device included many industry firsts, such as the largest screen on the market. The following year, Cobra’s NAV ONE 4500 became the first to fully integrate real-time traffic into a portable unit. In 2006, Cobra launched the NAV ONE 2500, which offered the technology of a high-end GPS Navigation system in a compact design and at an affordable price—opening mobile navigation to the masses. This coming year, Cobra will add to its growing line of GPS Navigation products with a unit that will offer the right mix of features and effortless technology for the first-time buyer.
