SOURCE: hello. i have a cobra

There are no updated maps or software available for that model. So, I need to upgrade to the 5000 gpsm for just a little over $200.00, plus I need to send in the old one. Will receive the new one in the mail 8-10 days.

SOURCE: my gps saids i am always in new york

If it is constantly on a singloe map location and never cuts in to navigate thjen suspect that
1) the antenna is afunctional, disconnected, or not working to lock onto satellites.

2) The chip that locates and communicates with the satellites is dead.

If it always shows a particular location when started, but does navigate to where you ask it to take you, but always returns to the base location when tuened off and then on. The program in your home address or in SETUP program your location and time zone to have it always start in Maryland.

SOURCE: wrong current location

it hasnt linked to the satellites yet...make sure its fully charged, then slide the switch to the off position for 15 seconds, then power it back on and take the unit outside in clear view of the open sky and wait until the satellites lock on.

you can tell when the satellites are linked by the bar at the top in the main menu area..

Can not get it to charge


Honestly... (anonymous),

$259 to $350 are the availability prices shown... but I am seeing a lot of OUT-OF-STOCK... returns on searches.

COBRA Engineers would be the only ones that can accurately answer your QUESTION...
(I searched repair & return & got CHATTER (nothing real)).

REAL ENGINEERS have data on LIFE-CYCLE management...
The very DATA you are asking would be the number of RELIABLE operations of the various elements, switches & jacks on your device... PRICE & AVAILABILITY.

As for me...
Now twice retired from the COMMERCIAL GRADE
"robust electronics" that made AMERICA great"...

Verify for yourself... (ergo)

I'd toss it into that ELECTRONIC RECYCLING box
in a hot (New York) second...
Cobra 6500 PRO COMMERCIAL TRUCK GPS eBay

Cobra 7750 Platinum 7 Professional Truck Driver GPS Navigation 28377501081...

and GLEEFULLY see what new ...
(walking talking... plug & play toys have REAR VIEW
back up cameras have superseded it...

Just keep in mind... "networking... CLOUDS...
and all these new toys are PRECISELY THAT... TOYS.

They only work when EVERYTHING is working
and your network connection it also there...

REAL GPS is between you and your satellite...

(I'm just saying... I am still holding onto all my old

Cobra navone 3000


He fried it. There is a significant difference in other electrical currents in the car from the direct battery. The unit will need to be serviced but shouldnt be visibly damaged from the outside. If it did suffer obvious electrical damage it is likely beyond repair Hope this helps!
