CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2016) - Cobra Electronics; held by Cedar Electronics and the leading designer and marketer of award-winning automotive, mobile and consumer electronics, today announced it has been named a TWICE Picks Award winner for its CDR 855 BT Drive HD™ Dash Cam. Products entered in this program were judged anonymously by TWICE editors and contributors during this year's CES 2016, held last week in Las Vegas. Nominees were evaluated based upon the several criteria including innovation, marketability and wow factor, thus receiving the "Pick" status. 

The CDR 855 BT is Cobra's current flagship dash cam, empowering drivers to both protect their vehicle and relive every drive. The model includes a two-inch LCD screen, ultra-wide 160° viewing angle and embedded G-Sensor to automatically save and protect clips if a vehicle impact is detected.
