I've recently been researching some electronics to install into my car that will help with detection of speed traps and the like. After re-reading the Wired article on Alex Roy's car (the one that broke the cross-country record) I noticed it had a Raytheon NightDriver thermal camera installed in it. http://www.nightdriversystems.com/nightdriver.html

I also found: http://www.flir.com/...cts/pathfindir/
which I am leaning towards. It's composite so I can run it into the Aux in on the NAV.

Anyone have any experience with either of these or anything like them?

It looks like the cost would be around $3000 list for the base camera, harness, and bracket from FLIR.

I was looking into the refresh rate as well, and they sell cameras of different rates. It is illegal to export a camera with greater than a 9hz refresh rate from the US.

There's a video comparing the rates:

The 30hz is the same price as the 9hz it looks like.

wow, the 30hz is significantly better. the 9hz doesn't look very usable. I can't wait to see this in action on your car!
