In the LA Times' technology blog, Alex Pham writes about the Cobra XRS 9960G radar and laser detector, which can detect red light cameras and speed cameras.
The Chicago company does this by maintaining a database of intersections known to have red-light cameras and stretches of road with speeding cameras. The database currently has more than 5,000 intersections, speed camera locations and popular speed traps.

Due out in the spring, the detectors are priced from $389 to $439, depending on the model.
