Satellite TV in your car

We don't recommend watching while behind the wheel, but 185 channels are available

KVH Industries

We firmly believe in freedom on the road , but we have to draw the line at watching TV in the car. After all, if we're already concerned about using the phone while driving, how do you expect us to feel about channel surfing?

We hope, therefore, that KVH's "TracVision A7" is designed for the passengers in the vehicle because it would be dangerously distracting to anyone behind the wheel. The mobile receiver provides up to 185 DirecTV channels and XM Satellite Radio, as well as standard broadcast transmissions. And if you can't resist sneaking a peek while driving, the built-in GPS can help you stay on course even if you're not always watching where you're going.
