Cobra's new JoyRide is a smart charger for Android phones that lets users set custom settings for entering or exiting their cars. At the push of a button, drivers can launch GPS navigation, answer calls, or listen to music. The companion app's unique "Car Finder" mode provides walking directions back to where the phone was disconnected from the charger, ensuring you no longer waste time wandering around parking lots. JoyRide is expected to be available in July 2012.
