Product Description

The new SPX 5500 is the culmination of Cobra's over 30 years of experience in building quality, high-performance, detectors. The game changing SPX Series nearly doubles the detection range, and warning time, of previous models! Cobra uses the latest technology, military grade components, and the best design practices in the world to pack this phenomenal performance into a sleek detector nearly half the size of other detectors in the market. Super-fast sweep circuitry provides extra detection range and the best possible advance warning to all radar/laser detectors currently used in the United States and Canada, including POP Mode (Super-fast) Instant-on Radar products. DigiView Text Display provides clear indication of the signal being detected as well as current mode of the detector.

Other features include:

  • Voice/Tone Alert

  • Signal Strength Meter

  • LaserEye

  • IntelliMute/IntelliMute Pro

  • VG-2/Spectre Radar Detector-Detectors

  • Safety Alert

  • Auto/Manual Mute

  • Dim Modes

I bought this product back in may 2014. I am one to say I never drive the speed limit, and ive never been pulled over till this day (1/29/15) Detector has givin me almost 3/4 mile warning for cops, and half mile for red light cameras! it is amazing! It does not actually set off for false signals, it gets set off by some security systems and automatic doors, but when you go past them enough you can automatically set the detector to ignore it. Its never left my car and I bought a second one when it was on sale for my friend. EXCELLENT!

I'm writing this review as the first day of testing, so please heed my review with warning. (I may report back to write an updated review)

First and foremost, this isn't the worst radar on the market, there are way way worse from what I've read. Don't buy into the hype. For about $150 dollars, you really can't go wrong with this product. It's easy to set up and comes with a detailed instruction guide, the packaging could be a bit better rather than plastic but hey! who cares right?

If you live in California like I do, you may have trouble sticking this on your dash with the adhesive that comes with this, I had to buy some velcro to make the dang thing stick to my dash. (You know CA Laws, nothing on the windshield)

On to my actual experience, After getting excited and setting it up, the product went to work like it should. I drove on I-680 and the 5500 picked up a Ka Detection but quickly went away. I think the cop was below me on the streets. I did come to one intersection where a K- Band went nuts! But I didn't see any cops around, I came back to same intersection about 30 mins. later and I did see a police officer with his lights on (the test on that in inconclusive). The 5500 does however pick up speed signs (those signs that say slow down if you go too fast) about 1000 feet away.

I will continue to test out the product and If it doesn't live up to it's standards, I will be returning the product to Frys, other than that, the product is doing fairly decent at the of posting this.

          Comments about Cobra Select SPX 5500 14-Band Radar/Laser Detector with Text & Real Voice Alerts:

          I bought this 2 months ago and it doesn't work anywhere close as good as my old Cobra does. In a matter of fact I don't think it works at all other then giving false alerts. I've tested it against my old dectector, when my old one detects radar I would immediately exchange dectectors and this new one would detect nothing and low and behold 1/2 mile down the road I pass a cop. I've contacted this outlet store that billed me and shipped me the new one and got a run around from them as far as exchanging/refund....no original packing no return is what they said. If I would've known I this hassle I'm now getting I never would've bought it online, only reason I did was because I thought I was buying directly from Cobra and not this "factory outlet store online". My advice is do not buy it online because you'll get a run around if you a have situation like me....my 2 cents. NOT IMPRESSED AT ALL!

          So I guess my recourse is to see what my credit card issuer will do about this defective item or take a hit a lose my hard earned cash I've paid for this.

          Comments about Cobra Select SPX 5500 14-Band Radar/Laser Detector with Text & Real Voice Alerts:

          This was the perfect XMAS gift. Yes I agree you sometimes get false signals; but it isn't really a false signal when its detecting something. The user guide tells you this will happen, and there are several things you can change to make it more quiet. The fact that someone would rely 100% on an electronic device to stay out of a ticket is absurd. 85% of the time that I have used it over the last 4 days it has been extremely accurate, with plenty of notice, even up in the mountains. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. A+++++++

          This Detector works great, had it for a few weeks and picked up 5 cops on the highway on one 350 mile trip. It gives you lots of warning.

          I bought this product two months ago and was totally fine until recently, kept giving me ridiculous false signals. But when I did contact customer support the lady wasn't very nice or seemed willing to help, but the worst part is I have to pay my own way to ship it out to them to fix it if thats even possible. I most likely just going to sell this one and buy a different companies product.

          Sorry Awfull, the worst Unit i ever purchased

          By nmto0777

          from Houston, TX, USA

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about Cobra Select SPX 5500 14-Band Radar/Laser Detector with Text & Real Voice Alerts:

          I would not recommend that unit.
          If i could find my receipt i would return it immediatly.
          Less than a month of owning that unit.
          Yes it does give you real alarms when you approaching a radar however it also gave you 3 times more alarms for no valid reasons.
          Mine goes off randomly for no reason in totally remote area, react to Audi car around me ( Suspect it may be trigger from their blind spot transmitter but very specific to most Audi cars surrounding me on the road) and the most annoying is that it gives me on a regular daily basis at different locations the "train" alarm when there is not a train track within more than 10 miles... so because so many faulse alarms, (even in city mode to attenuate the quantity of faulse alarm) you do not pay attention to it anymore and will be caught.
          My previous 5 years old , cheapest unit bought for $59 at a different company did gave me so much better results than this one... i will stay away from a cobra product any more as it relate to Radar detector..
          And i did pay more (as i my credit card statement show as i did not keep the receipt) at an approved distributor (best buy) that it show on the manufacture web site to top it off.
          not very happy....
