Introduction

Congratulations! You have just purchased the most
sophisticated RADAR/LASER DETECTOR available today.
This booklet contains instructions and information
designed so that you will be able to understand how
the Cobra® XR-1050  works  and how radar and (LIDAR)
laser are used. Enjoy your Cobra® XR-1050 Radar/Laser
Detector and 

drive safely

.

Federal Law Governing Use of 
Radar Detectors

It is not against Federal Law to receive radar 
transmissions on your COBRA® Radar Detector.
The Communications Act of 1934 guarantees 
your right to receive radio transmissions on 
any frequency. Local laws that contravene the 
Communications Act of 1934, while illegal, may 
be enforced by your local law enforcement officials
until and unless they are prohibited from doing so by
Federal Court action.

WARNING:

Before leaving your car, make sure that 

you conceal your radar detector. This will reduce the
possibility of break-in and theft of your unit.

and Strobe Alert™

Use of this product is not intended to,
and does not ensure that the motorist
and any passenger will not be involved
in a traffic accident. It is only intended
to alert the motorist that an emergency
or service vehicle equipped with a
CODE 3, Strobe (Opticom* or Tomar
Preemption System) or Cobra® Safety
Alert® Transmitter is in the area as
defined by the range of the product.
Please call your local Fire/Police
department to verify if coverage exists
in your area. Motorists are expected to
exercise all due caution while using this
product, and to observe and follow all
applicable traffic laws. Operators of
emergency or service vehicles are also
expected to exercise all due caution
while using this product, and to ob-
serve and follow all applicable traffic

Facts About
Safety Alert

®

Traffic Warning
System

Note

Strobe Alert™ is available in
over 1,000 cities and works
with Tomar and Opticom
systems. Call your local
Fire/Police department for
your area coverage or area in
which you will be traveling.

Facts About the Safety Alert® Traffic 
Warning System

FCC-approved Safety Alert® Transmitters emit microwave radar signals
to indicate the presence of a safety-related concern. Depending on the
frequency of these signals, as set on the transmitter, the outgoing
signal can indicate whether the transmitter is on a speeding
emergency vehicle or train, or at a stationary road hazard location.
These microwave signals are located in the K-band and as a result, any
radar detector which detects K-band radar will detect these Safety
signals as standard K-band radar alerts. However, unlike a standard
radar detector, your Cobra® XR-1050 is designed to differentiate
between a standard K-band alert and a Safety Alert® warning. Safety
technology is relatively new so the number of transmitters in operation
is still growing. You may not receive Safety Alert® on a daily basis and
should not be surprised to encounter some emergency vehicles, road
hazards or trains not yet equipped with these transmitters, therefore
failing to provide a signal. As Safety Transmitters become more
prevalent (the number of operating transmitters is growing every day),
these Safety Alert®s will become more common. The Safety Alert®
Transmitter is in use in all 50 states in limited quantities.

Thank you for purchasing Cobra®’s XR-1050, the worlds first 10-band

TM

Radar/Laser Detector with Digital Signal Processing. It features a high
speed RISC digital processor, similar to those used in high end personal
computers. The result–incredibly high sensitivity and virtually no false
alerts. In addition, the revolutionary LCiD 3-color graphic display
provides you with complete, easy-to-read information featuring icons
combined with an alpha-numeric readout for exceptionally quick
response time.

Location

Selecting the proper location to mount the Cobra®
XR-1050 is very important for optimum
performance. Both radar and laser transmissions
pass through glass but not through other objects.
For this reason the Cobra® XR-1050 lenses must not
be blocked.The LaserEye® should have a view of
the rear window to take advantage of its 360˚
detection capability. It is best to locate your detector
as low on the front windshield as possible.

Examples of metal in the windshield area that can
block or weaken incoming radar/laser signals:

1. Windshield wiper blades.

2. Mirrored sun screens.

3. Regular tinted glass does not affect radar

reception, although the darker tint at the
top of the tinted windshield prevents laser
light from penetrating.

4. Heated windshields, currently available as an

option for some Ford® (Instaclear) and GM®
(Electriclear vehicles act as an impenetrable
barrier to radar signals). If in doubt, check
with your dealer to see if this applies to 
your vehicle.

Interpretation and Response

Your COBRA® XR-1050 starts to signal
slowly, then increases in rate very
rapidly.

Most likely police radar.

FULL ALERT

.

Your COBRA® XR-1050 
signals just once.

Most likely a false source, or could be
pulsed radar.

Exercise Caution

.

Very fast signal rate instantly.

Slow signal rate as you approach 
hill or bridge. Sharp increase in signal
rate as you reach hill or bridge.

Most likely police radar on other side
of hill or bridge.

FULL ALERT

.

Radar or VG-2 close by has been 
suddenly switched on.

FULL ALERT

.

Short-term, weak signaling;
series of such signals.

Laser will trigger 3 distinct audible
signals; one each for LTI 20-20, Ultra
Lyte and ProLaser.

Use Full Caution

. There are no false

laser signals.

Safety Alert® and Strobe Alert™ have
their own unique “European
Emergency” signal.

An emergency vehicle is approaching,
you are in the vicinity of a railroad
crossing, or you are approaching a
road hazard (construction site,
accident scene, etc.).

Most likely a false radar source.

Exercise Caution

.

Note

In Voice Alert™, the
message “Be careful—
Laser alert” will be
announced, followed by
the UltraLyte, ProLaser, or
20/20 tone.

Radar Frequencies

There are three frequencies that have been
approved by the FCC (Federal Communications
Commission) for use in speed monitoring 
equipment. They are:

X Band (10.525 GHz), K Band (24.150 GHz)
Ka Band (33.400-36.000 GHz)

Your Cobra® XR-1050 can detect signals in all
radar bands including photo radar and STALKER
radar which use the Ka band, and Cobra®’s Safety
Alert® signals on the K band.

Facts About LIDAR (Laser)

What is LIDAR?

LIDAR stands for Light Detection And Ranging.
While everyone refers to it as LASER the correct
name is LIDAR.

How does LIDAR work?

LIDAR operates a lot like RADAR. Like RADAR, it
spreads out. Not as quickly, but it does spread, as
shown on the diagram below.

Facts About
LIDAR (Laser)

LIDARs must have a clear
line of sight to target a
vehicle during the entire
measurement interval.
Intervening objects such as
signposts, utility poles, tree
branches, etc., will prevent
a valid speed reading.

Maintenance

Facts About
LIDAR (Laser)

Does weather have any effect on LIDAR?

Yes, rain, snow, smoke, fog, and airborne dust 
particles will all reduce the effective range, and 
if sufficiently dense, may prevent its operation.

Can LIDAR operate through glass?

No, LIDAR guns cannot obtain readings through
any glass. But the laser pulse can be received
through glass to easily and quickly trigger a laser
detector's alarm.

Can LIDAR operate while moving?

No, since LIDAR is line of sight, an officer cannot
drive, aim, and shoot while driving.

Is a LIDAR DETECTOR legal to use?

Yes, it is legal in all 50 states.

Maintenance

Your COBRA® XR-1050 RADAR/LASER DETECTOR
will give you years of trouble-free service with
minimum maintenance.

Replacing Power Cord Fuse

Unscrew cap of cigarette lighter adapter and
remove fuse. Replace with 1-ampere fuse only.

Troubleshooting

If your COBRA® LASER DETECTOR XR-1050 isn’t
operating, we suggest you make the following
checks:
1. Is the power cord properly connected?
2. Is the fuse OK?
3. Is the cigarette lighter socket clean and free

from corrosion?
