During our search for the latest cool gadgets, we encountered – for car enthusiasts – the Lanmodo Vast Night Vision. A car tech gadget from Lanmodo. What this is? A night vision system with rear view camera. Driving at night can be quite a challenge, especially if you plan on taking road trips. In the downtown you may not be bothered too much by good road lighting, but if you cross the border, it is a different story. In this case, night vision equipment is not an unnecessary luxury. That is why we took a closer look at this product.
So it’s a useful gadget for your car, improving road safety by helping people see better in dark or gloomy conditions. The Lanmodo Vast Vision is in fact a camera system that is placed on top of the dashboard or mounted on a windshield of a car or van.
The device has a large, 8.2-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 pixels. A 28 mm optical lens on the back of the device provides the “magic” of night vision. This lens has an advertised sensitivity of 0.0001 lux (meaning the device can ‘see’ in the dark, a bit equivalent to a cloudy night sky).The viewing angle is 36 degrees and it can capture images of up to 300m in front. This is a testimony of the fact that not only is it aesthetically pleasing and easy to use, but it is also a really good overall judge.
There are buttons on the top left of the device, which are used to turn the device on and off, to switch between camera views (on the front and rear) when the rear camera (optional) is installed. Also display settings such as brightness and contrast, changes the color between black and white, display and rotate, or rotate the video screen options can be managed here.
Differences with on-board cameras
Lanmodo says that, unlike the built-in night vision systems offered by some car manufacturers, this gadget can be installed in almost any vehicle. The device’s sensitive camera relies on intelligent algorithms, amplification and image optimization to capture the road in color at night. This goes a step further than the black and white images of competing products.
The Lanmodo Vast comes in a box with all the necessary accessories for installation, including power cable, car charger adapter, a suction cup and a non-slip mat. For technical users, or for those who want to pay a technician for this, there is a possibility – with an adapter (included) – to supply the Lanmodo Fixed with power via the on-board (OBD) port. This is present in almost all modern vehicles. Since the OBD port is usually located under the dashboard, this option gives drivers a much cleaner look and saves the user a car charger, which can then be used for a smart phone. However, most users will probably choose to power their Lanmodo Vast with the car charger. The real test video shows a clear installation:
The usefulness of a night vision system in the car may not be entirely clear to people who have not driven on unlit roads or in poor conditions. The ability to quickly discern that a piece of darkness is an obstacle rather than a shadow can mean the difference between an accident and disaster prevention. It is particularly important for people who drive quite frequently through the countryside or the suburbs, truck drivers and policemen have to be on duty all night. Not only are these roads poorly lit, but animals also tend to jump in front of the car without any prior warning. Having this device will alert you prematurely and you can maneuver accordingly.
The Lanmodo Vast 1080p night vision device is a visual device for almost 99% car models. It provides you with a clear picture of the road ahead by enhancing road visibility, which is worthy a second look for those who undertake night driving frequently. For a retail price of just under $500 (for the front camera), Lanmodo offered a $100 off coupon code LMDNVS_BOR the product comes for $ 399 now being ordered via this link: Lanmood
