Ah, right. Thank you. Not moving in those circles, I had no idea how it worked. So it's not trying to show you IR, it's converting an IR image into visible light.

"NightPanel" is quite possibly the most useful "feature" that I have ever had in any car that I have owned. Until you have used it you have no idea just how much difference it makes and how much more you can see outside the car.
I like that idea very much, although I've never owned a SAAB. I mentioned it in my night driving guide a few years ago. I always have my dash lights down as far as they will go and try to minimise other light sources inside the car. The other day when driving a hired minibus with a colleague, I had to ask him to angle his phone away from me (he was passengering) so it didn't destroy my night vision.
