The manufacturer claims that the new hybrid Neoline X-COP 9100S is able to detect easily the police camera not only on russian roads, but will be useful to the European driver. Meanwhile, the device in no case violates foreign law. I decided to take a ride with the novelty on the roads of Russia and Europe to make sure how well the device’ll cope with its task.
Durable case for storing and transportation
Neoline X-COP 9100S can be stored in a travel bag because of a durable box and don’t worry that it will be damaged. Especially the case’ll be liked by people who prefer to travel by plane and rent a car as needed. As for me, I managed to put in a box not only the device with a power adapter, but also memory cards and other accessories.
It can be installed discreetly in the car
Surface with 3M-tape has its pros and cons. First of all, it holds the device on the windscreen of the car more securely and allows you to choose a more convenient place for installation. But, on the other hand, this bracket can’t be dismantled or hanged in another place. To supplement the delivery set with an additional clamping with a vacuum sucker would be a good idea.
The Easy Touch interface can be understood without even looking at the instructions
I remember that I once spoke well of the Easy Touch interface in the review of a simpler hybrid from Neoline. Device designers have tried in order to work with a hybrid would be as intuitively simple as using iPhone. Device settings can be understood without instructions – all items in the menu have Russian signatures. There is a demo mode, which’ll demonstrate all capabilities of the device in a couple of minutes. Neoline X-COP 9100S is additionally provided with the function of Motion Control, which mutes any sound notifications at a wave of the hand.
Fine-tuning of the radar part and GPS-informer
I have never seen so many settings in any device as in Neoline X-COP 9100S. If in other combos only certain ranges and GPS-receiver itself can be switched off, then in the new hybrid I can set the frequency of the work for each range. It turns out that it’s really versatile device that can be used in different countries. The same advanced settings are provided for the DVR. A video which demonstrates the menu and the device interface is shown below.
It didn’t disappoint on Russian roads
No false actuation — all messages are needful because of the presence of the Z-signatures filter and X-COP smart mode. The last one determines the speed of the car and activates the various modules and sensors on its own. If a car goes slowly around the city, the radio-module’ll be disabled, if it “flies” on the highway, the Neoline X-COP 9100S will work with maximum sensitivity.
The 2-inch Neoline X-COP 9100S display shows maximum of useful information: the type of police radar, permissible, average and current speed, the distance to the camera, the level and type of signal… Several modes of information display is provided. The display can be switched off at night time in order not to dazzle while driving on the highway.
From Berlin to Stuttgart without fines
Who has been there, he knows that amount of the European fines greatly differ from Russian ones. At once, you can easily ‘get’ a fine which is equal to the cost of a brand-new Neoline X-COP 9100S, but also ‘get’ into debt. It doesn’t matter how careful driver you are, because the police radar can wait for you in the most unexpected place. If you didn’t see the sign indicating the settlement, you arrived! Fortunately, the device indicates where the camera is, and also tells you how fast you need to move in this area. An example of warnings in Europe is shown below.
It’s not a secret that ordinary radar detectors are prohibited in Europe. That’s why, Neoline X-COP 9100S provides the shutdown of the radiosignal receiver. It’s enough to press two side buttons together and the device’ll switch to the required mode. In this case, the police won’t have any questions. The hybrid database contains data not only about European and Russian cameras, but also about CIS, USA, Middle East, etc.
Perfect deal with video recording
Sony matrix and a powerful processor allow you to save videos with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 30 fps. Details are at high level and the color reproduction is as close to realistic as possible. Additionally, the clarity of the image is achieved by using six glass lenses in the lens. 135 degree angle of view allows you to monitor what is happening on several lanes of traffic.
Practice has shown that the hybrid Neoline X-COP 9100S is perfectly suitable for use on Russian roads and abroad. At least, the device warned me in time about the presence of all police radars installed on the way from Berlin to Bavaria. In most cases, it was difficult to understand at what speed it is necessary to move site — hybrid tips helped. Besides, the device is endowed with a super-convinient interface and records videos of excellent quality.
What I liked in Neoline X-COP 9100S:
– There is a case for safe transportation of the device;
– Super-comprehensible Easy Touch interface and fine-tuning of the radar part;
– There are a Z-signature filter and X-COP mode;
– It easily identifies Russian and European cameras;
– Video is saved with high quality and excellent detail because of the Sony matrix.
What I didn’t like in Neoline X-COP 9100S:
– Absence of a bracket sucker in a delivery set;
– The power connector is not universal.
