    Yeah they aren't cheap. $2,500 for the FLIR, $700 for the XW module (I talked about above), and $500 for the COD module to integrate it. Plus then you've got to figure out how to mount and install it all.

    Which that Hudway one that the OP posted will be interesting to see how it works. That one is about half the price.

    i have been messing around with getting my video to display on the windshield and not on a display. havent come up with a perfect solution yet, but the test setups i have put together looks promising.

    Awesome! Well I’ll see you in a few days.

    I’ve got one of these heads up displays on order (stupid Kickstarter campaign that’s a year behind!!!). It’s also what the OP is going to be running as well.

    Hi all, sorry for late reply .. Pics will follow shortly with live footage video from the Nightvision Camera.
    Until i got the Hudway Drive HUD (now promised for delivery in September) - i use this workaround:
    Using my MS Surface Tablet for Navigation and GPX tracking etc. But i got a 10$ Framegrabber USB stick where i connect the camera to (needs an USB-A to USB-C adapter).
    So basically the Video input of the Nightvision Camera becomes an "extra" Camera on the tablet and i use the standard Camera App. with full screen Video on the Tablet - where you also can
    record Video and take photos with. The Tablet is on a special Holder by JOY Factory https://thejoyfactory.com/ The base fits into a Cupholder and its perfect.
    Again will post Video footage etc soon in the weekend. On an side note @Swarfowrks The Winch mount is awesome !! Thanks for that!

    Finally had some time to prep a very short video, took the dashcam video and put the thermal video next to it as comparison. The brighter white = warmer can see that good in the parking garage you can see which cars just parked due to hot engine area.

    Can you get the camera to display heat sources with crosshairs instead of a box?

    Asking for a friend.

    Haha. I’m thinking that’s a negative and might also be why you have to fill out an application to the department of homeland security. At least for the FLIR one I had to.
