The Cobra Vedetta SLR 650G radar and laser detector is a great choice for the price range that it’s in. The informative 2.4-inch touch screen is a great feature that sets it apart from other radar detectors and allows the driver to better understand what the 650G is detecting and where the signal is coming from.
My favorite features of the Vedetta SLR 650G are the speed alert, speedometer, vocal audio warning, and it’s access to the AURA database wich allows it to detect if there are speed/red light cameras, speed traps, and dangerous intersections near you. While, overall, this is a great radar detector, it has two major flaws; having a glossy, reflective screen, and not being Mac compatible to activate and update the AURA database.
Being less than $300, Cobra’s Vedetta SLR 650G is great choice for a radar detector. It looks great and absolutely unique and works great as wel. I highly recommend this detector if you are looking for one that is relatively inexpensive and offers many great features.
Please be aware that radar detectors are not police detectors – most officers do not even drive with their radars and lidars on. Also, radar detectors do not give you a license to speed, they’re produced with the intention of making the driver more aware of their surroundings.
