The Cobra Road Scout ($449) is an integrated radar detector & dashcam combo. Beneath its funky design, you’ve got a mid-tier radar detector and a 1080p dashcam, plus GPS, Bluetooth, WiFi, and cloud connectivity. Personally I love the idea of having both a radar detector and dashcam in your vehicle and an all-in-one like this makes it easier to run and install both.
Is the Road Scout any good? There’s always going to be some compromises when going for any all-in-one unit, plus Cobra doesn’t have a great reputation as a brand, but this is one of Cobra’s “Elite Series” products. Is choosing the Road Scout better than running a standalone RD and dashcam? Are the trade-offs worth it? Let’s take a closer look.
