Q: Why is NightRide mounted on the outside of the car?
NightRide uses far wave infrared technology. Far wave infrared enables NightRide to “see” up to 1800 feet ahead, but far wave infrared cannot see through glass. This is why NightRide mounts to the outside of your vehicle.
Q: How is NightRide powered?
NightRide is powered through a wired connection to your car battery.
Q: How easy is it to install NightRide?
NightRide is a simple install. We provide the tools, you provide 5 minutes of your time.
Q: How easy is it to uninstall NightRide?
If you want to remove NightRide to store for later use, simply unscrew the power connector and one screw that attaches NightRide to the mount. If you are removing the mount as well, there will be one more screw to loosen. In any case, removing NightRide takes less than 5 minutes.
Q: How do I see infrared images?
NightRide captures infrared images and streams them via WiFi connection to a mobile screen device that's placed on the dashboard. There's the heads up display option (HUD) that projects images from the screen onto the clear film affixed to lower portion of the windshield. As you drive, the infrared images are displayed continuously onto the screen of HUD for your convenience.
Q: Can I view the NightRide camera on my vehicle's navigation or info screen?
While it is certainly possible to display the footage from NightRide on your vehicle's dash screen, we do not believe this is a safe way to use NightRide. We developed our heads-up display specifically to make sure the driver can see what NightRide sees without taking their eyes off the road.
Q: What is the difference between night vision and infrared?
Night vision devices function by taking small amounts of ambient light and amplifying them in low light scenarios. Infrared based devices operate by measuring the amount of heat emitted by people or objects and creating a visual depiction of that energy. Night vision works from your headlights. NightRide sees beyond the scope of your headlights, showing you what your headlights don't.
Q: Do I need an internet connection?
Not to use NightRide, but a connection is necessary to upgrade the NightRide app or store any videos on the cloud.

Q: What are safe operating temperatures for NightRide?
