Video recorders 5 in 1 combine the following functional elements: GPS-navigation, anti-radar, video recording, voice prompts and speed messages (speed measurement). Outwardly, they look a little more massive than standard cameras, since several times more system elements are hidden under their body.
The purchase of combo registrars will be beneficial if the user has a limited budget and cannot afford to purchase several special devices at once. Among other things, this equipment option will take up less space on the dashboard and windshield, simplify installation and reduce the number of wires passing through the cabin. At the very start of the seasonal price reduction, the editors of the magazine have selected 7 of the best 5-in-1 DVRs, which will be a good addition for your car.

Neoline X-COP 9100s
Until recently, Neoline X-COP 9100s was considered the best video recorder on the Russian market. However, with the replenishment of the CARCAM model range, its main disadvantages became especially acute: high price and relatively modest technical parameters. The single-stream camera shoots video at a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels at 30 frames per second, providing a viewing angle of a modest 135 degrees. There is a whole set of sensors (impact, movement in the frame), as well as GPS and GLONASS. But there is no normal battery: 220 mAh is enough only for 5 minutes of shooting, after which the device turns off automatically.
However, Neoline X-COP 9100s also has unique features that budget counterparts only dream of. For example, the automatically activated night mode and the WDR function, which stabilizes the picture in case of strong light from sunlight or headlights. Note also 2 slots for memory cards, each of which can accept Micro SD 128 GB. The radar detector model 9100s also remains one of the best not only in the category of combo recorders, but also in the segment of single radar detectors, providing tremendous opportunities for determining complexes and ranges in any region of Russia.
- night shooting function and WDR stabilization;
- 2 slots for memory cards;
- one of the best radar components on the market;
- the ability to edit videos;
- function of recording an event in a separate video (60 seconds).
- working temperature starts from -10 degrees Celsius;
- high price;
- rather modest video recording characteristics.
Artway MD-165 Combo 5 in 1
Artway MD-165 Combo is another 5-in-1 rear-view mirror video recorder, which allows you to connect 2 cameras at once and achieve a recording quality similar to CARCAM COMBO 5S. This is due to two factors at once. First, the viewing angle extended to 170 degrees. And secondly, an adequate assessment of the capabilities of the integrated matrix and the Allwinner V3 processor. The maximum device is a video in the format Full HD at 30 frames per second, which loads the system just enough so that it can adequately process signals from other modules.
Despite the fact that Artway MD-165 Combo is listed as a video recorder, the main emphasis in the model was placed on a radar detector. This is the best part of it, which can detect up to 18 complexes and ranges, and also has a number of user settings up to updating the camera base in real time. In parallel, we can note the presence of a 500 mAh battery (enough for 20 minutes of battery life), a set of sensors and a slot for installing a memory card up to 32 GB.
- IPS display;
- powerful radar detector;
- optimal processor load and increased system reliability as a whole;
- viewing angle (diagonal) is 170 degrees;
- the ability to connect 2 cameras.
- small amount of installed memory.
CARCAM COMBO 5S
The 5-in-1 CARCAM COMBO 5S DVR is on the third line by a wide margin from the closest competitor. The manufacturers' thorough approach to the radar detector has made the combo recorder one of the “strongest” on the domestic market: more than 20 popular complexes and all equipment on the ranges from K and Ka to X and La will be detected. The operating temperature range is also pleasing: from -40 to +60 degrees Celsius. Thus, the device is suitable for work in almost any part of Russia.
An updated 4MP sensor and AIT8328P processor allow CARCAM COMBO 5S to shoot high definition video. At a resolution of 2k, the video reaches a stable 30 frames per second, and when the resolution is changed to a lower one: from 60 to 120. The viewing angle of 160 degrees is also pleasing. In addition, the developers deliberately did not introduce continuous recording into the product in order to protect the video from damage and overloading the system.
- reads Micro SD up to 128GB;
- 4 megapixel CMOS matrix;
- optimal operating temperature range;
- stability of work when shooting video in 2k-resolution;
- optimal price;
- excellent radar detector included.
- not found.
SilverStone F1 HYBRID S-BOT
Traditional 5-in-1 DVR with one active camera. Shoots video in 1080p at 30 frames per second. It has a shock sensor, a built-in GPS-module and a radar detector of enhanced action, which determines all relevant (at the time of the model's release into production) radar complexes and frequency ranges. Accepts 32GB Micro SD maximum, which is a slight disadvantage when compared to its main competitors.
If we talk about secondary characteristics, then SilverStone F1 HYBRID S-BOT shoots only cyclic videos (this is due to the small amount of memory of the readable storage and the desire to protect a large file from damage), uses a built-in battery and operates on the on-board network. It can be raised to the rank of the best solely for stable, reliable operation, as well as for the successful display of the main indicators on the display.
- compact and lightweight device (190 g);
- high-quality radar detector;
- working temperature range (from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius);
- possibility of power supply from the on-board network and its own battery.
- accepts memory cards up to 32 GB;
- does not have continuous recording function.
The next representative in the ranking – Dunobil Urban – is based on the newer Ambarella A7LA50D processor, with increased stability and speed. It is thanks to him, as well as the improved matrix, that the DVR is able to shoot video in 2k format (2560 × 1080 pixels) both cyclically and without splitting into separate files. Everything is saved on Micro SD up to 128 GB, and the start of recording is set both when the user turns on the device, and when the G-sensor or motion sensor in the frame is triggered.
If the main function of Dunobil Urban is implemented brilliantly, then there is one small problem with the radar detector: it does not see many common radar systems. But it accurately responds to various sources of radiation in the X, K, Ka and La bands, and also provides ample opportunities for customizing the device. It is inexpensive, looks acceptable, and combines a lot of useful functions.
- low cost;
- the ability to record video in 2k resolution;
- work from a battery or from an on-board network;
- a complete list of detectable emission and frequency ranges;
- support for flash cards up to 128 GB.
- does not support detection of a number of popular radar systems.
SHO-ME Combo No. 1 Signature
Standard 5-in-1 DVR with one plug-in camera, detecting up to 6 different radars and working on K, Ka, X and La detection. Unlike the previous competitor, it has a small 2.31-inch display, but with good color reproduction and quite informative design. The Ambarella A12A20 processor is responsible for the speed of operations and system response in SHO-ME Combo No. 1 Signature, which is resistant to overload and freezes even when the permissible operating temperature is exceeded (from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius).
The DVR is equipped with a shock sensor, GPS and GLONASS systems, and a 128 GB Micro SD slot. Its shortcomings include a small (135 degrees) viewing angle, as well as the lack of a continuous recording function. Otherwise, the offer is able to satisfy the needs of even the most demanding users.
- up to 128 GB of installed memory;
- detection of frequency ranges X, K, Ka and La;
- reliable and fast processor from Ambarella;
- flexible system of tuning the radar detector.
- small angle of view of the camera;
- only loop recording for 1, 2 and 5 minutes.
5 inch rearview mirror dash cam, working with 2 cameras. Shoots in resolution Full HD 1080p in several modes: loop and continuous. It has a G-sensor, a built-in GPS-navigator, as well as a whole set of tuned frequencies for receiving signals from radars (Strelka, Arena, Radis, Binar, Berkut, etc.).
Intego VX-685MR provides a viewing angle of 160 degrees, can record sound, as well as date, time and speed. It can use 32 GB Micro SD as data storage. The video recorder works at temperatures from -10 to +50 degrees Celsius, so in winter it is worth pre-warming up the cabin before connecting the device to the network.
- the ability to connect two cameras;
- entry in Full HD;
- a large number of detected radars (9);
- reasonable price and good quality level.
- of the detected frequency ranges only K and X.
