    .►► Real THERMAL IMAGING Night Vision Custom Install

    I did this on my g35, I'm doing it on my WRX next. Got a FLIR thermal imaging night vision camera for a 99-03 Cadillac Deville, install a 5" monitor above my CD player and install the camera behind the grill.

    Cadillac camera is pretty expensive, usually sells for $800-1200 on ebay but I found one locally for $300. Be careful when buying the camera, there are 2 versions. 2nd gen version is smaller and better. 1st gen version had a bad seal and water would get in it and it would rust out all the electronics inside (don't buy). I've had four 2nd gen version cameras and they all worked fine.

    Here is a video of the camera working @: www.007licenseplate.com/nightvision/

    Pretty cool, could you wire it into an aftermarket head unit? What is the output of the camera in, hardware wise?

    You can connect it to any tv/head unit that has a typical yellow RCA wire input. On the camera there are 6 pins, 2 not used, 2 power, and 2 for picture. Very easy hooked up. I've never had any problems connect the camera to and TV with RCA video and the 5" LCD I have it connected to in my car is a cheap $25 ebay 5" 320x240 lcd. Camera's resolution is 320x240 so I didn't have any need to get a higher resolution lcd.

    I feel like this would just distract me. I haven't had an issue seeing deer or people with my regular headlights.

    The real advantage is being able to see further peripherally at distance. The deer I have had trouble with all jumped out from the side - the ones already in the road are usually easy enough to avoid. I do question whether the mounting position in the front of the dash would be noticeable enough though, yet I'm confident I wouldn't want it where the Caddy illustrates it unless that is a real head's up display and you can easily see what is through it. Even then it looks too big.

    Can be a bit distracting I'm not gonna lie. Sometimes I cant stop glancing over at it as I drive but since it is a front facing camera you can still see where you're going lol
