Laser Eye – The laser of the Cobra provided us 360˚ detection of any laser signals which made our life much easier while we issued this Cobra XRS 9470 review. It simply means is that it can detect a signal from the front and rear of the vehicle.

It also has other features such as Ultrabright Data Display, Tone Alert, Signal Strength Meter, Laser Eye, IntelliMute/IntelliMute Pro, VG-2/Spectre Radar Detector-Detectors, Safety Alert, Auto/Manual Mute, Dim Modes, City/Highway Filtering Modes (Similar to ESD 7570), and Ku-band detection.

All of the Cobra XRS radar detectors series, including the XRS 9370, has the normal range of detection which is of approximately 2 miles and that on a flat and open landscape. The range will diminutive if there are any hills and curves or other raised parts that to block the signal. Hence, you will receive a full alert, and so you can take immediate action of slowing down your vehicle, but be careful at the law enforcement officer, wherein he may be just around the corner or on the other side of the hill.

Radar & Laser Detection: We tested many types of signals in this Cobra XRS 9470 Review including radar signals (X, K, Ka and Ku bands, with signal strength indicated), laser signals, safety alert signals, VG-2 signals, and Spectre I & IV+ signals. It is also capable of detecting radar guns with “instant-on” speed monitoring capabilities. Besides detecting signals, you also have the option to show which signals are being detected.

While running the Cobra XRS 9470 Review we got it with factory settings as X Band and K Band On, Ku Band was off. According to this review and top reviews on the media, the benefit of reducing false alerts is an indeed big feature and it displays only what the radar is set to display.
