If patents regarding use of Bluetooth connected tech were such a concern, then by the same logic, no program on my phone should be allowed to use my Motorola headset, or Logitech keyboard (both bluetooth).

If there were such a problem, I am sure Google (current owners of Waze) could come up with some agreement with Cobra since its ability to interact with Waze would be mutually beneficial. Waze would have another means of collecting useful data, while Cobra would benefit from getting their product name out there as an item consumers will want (because they can use it with Waze)

The application is available for free download on both Android and Apple devices, and will work without the presence of an iRadar unit.
