I paid $2,179.99, no s/h and no sales tax. The going price is $2,595 - $2,999, but if you search hard enough on the web you can find a better deal. The installation wasn't hard just time consuming. I spent the first evening (2 hours) installing the cross rails and the dish on the roof. I did it without help so that is why it took me 2 hours. The second evening (2 hours) I drilled a hole in the roof and ran the cables.

anyone can get this backseat tv through www.invisionindustries.com. im getting this for my enclave dealer installed headrest dvd's
Nice system, you can't go wrong with this product. I had the Revolution II from Invision Industries installed in a Nissan Maxima and have since sold to my brother-in-law. I used the money from the sale to help buy the satellite dish. I paid $1,599 + tax from the Nissan dealer about 2 years ago.

No offense, but unless I lived in my car (down by the river) I can't see the light.

You are a God of entertainment. Congratulations.

Just for completeness, there is a more mainstream solution coming exclusively to Chrysler this year called Sirius Backseat TV. It should migrate to other platforms for the 2009 model year. By then, maybe.. Sirious and XM will have merged (allowing the product to be used in GM vehicles)

Thanks, I really love this system. Now I don't have to go into the stores or mall, I just sit in the car and watch tv while the misses do the shopping. Doesn't matter if she spends two hours in the store anymore.

I read up on the Sirius system, was a little disappointed that it was exclusive to Chrysler only. Hopefully that will change in due time.

To get local channels and NFL Sunday Ticket you need to periodically prove you live in the metro area. This is normally done by the receiver making an outbound call to a central number. The caller ID of the phone making the call identifies your metro area.

How do you do this with your car? Guess its no different than the RV'er's out there..

cravenfan, you are really funny...i laugh everytime i read some of your posts. ;D

I think its the 'bling factor'... that huge thing would cover the entire 2nd moonroof. a little much for my taste.

Too expensive for my blood, but I would love one if the reception was good while the vehicle was moving. I'd love it on road trips, sitting in a mall parking lot, not so much.

I don't think that's true. I have had DirectTV for years, and Sunday Ticket and I never ever hooked my recievers up to the phone lines. I don't even have a landline phone in my house.

Adding video entertainment to my SUV has nothing to do with the bling factor. Unless you know anything about this system, you would have no idea what it is on the roof. Look around the forum and I think you will find more bling-bling than this dish on my roof.

This is Awesome! Rae, I pm'ed you about this. I have been looking into the TracVision A7 and wondered if anyone had done it yet.
For anyone with kids, this is a godsend.
I just wish the Acadia had TV screens in the headrests so I could have two different TV channels at the same time.

The big question for me is whether to try the install myself or have a KVH dealer do it for me.

Please reply back. Thanks.

Reading this post its amazing I ever made it through childhood. Growing up we were lucky to have an AM radio and three broadcast TV Stations. Wow it amazes me what we need to raise kids today. I guess I'm lucky I made it out of childhood and living a pretty productive life with out it all. Next time I see my parents I have to remind them how deprived I was as a child!!!!!!! lol

kevtim10...I hear you! I ordered an Enclave with the DVD system but what ever happened to singing and talking with your kid(s) as you travel? That's what we use to do while we were in the car with Mom. We would count how many red cars went past us or something like that. What about talking about your day. I never knew my mom didn't want to hear what I had to say. (probably why I'm telling you guys what I have to say...Mom listened) DVD player is nice but calling the ability to watch two different sources of TV for different kids a "Godsend". What happened to sharing? What's next? PlayStation in your car...oops, they already have that. Before you start calling me an old fart...32 is my age. You all need to brush up on your children songs and have family idol while on the road. Oh by the way...no french fries or colored beverages will be allowed in the Enclave. But you can sing about how you want some fries and a cup juicy juice.
