trucker.comSeveral new trucking products were highlighted at the 2016 Mid-America Trucking Show, held in Louisville, Ky. One of those products is a new dash cam from Cobra Electronics featuring built-in GPS. According to an American Trucker magazine review, the new dash cam—the CDR 875 G Drive HD—is Cobra Electronics’ most advanced dash cam yet.

This model caters to the growing demand for added in-cab safety, and (assists) in documentation of any driving or roadside event.

The CDR 875 G includes internal GPS that embeds precise time and location information into every recording. When played back on a computer, Cobra’s Drive HD player shows your route and location on a Google map along with speed, compass and GPS information.

Chris Kooistra, Cobra’s senior director of marketing, discussed the reasoning behind the upgrade.

“A lot of people don’t like to tie up their phone while they’re driving,” he said. “Especially in the trucking market, they like the GPS embedded into the unit.”

The CDR 875 G offers Bluetooth integration, too. In addition, it includes some of the same features as Cobra’s previous CDR models.
