The couple initially invested in KVH's TracVision SA system, the company's first completely automatic satellite TV system designed for use in parked vehicles.
"We use it constantly during our layover time," said Peggy Daniels. "If we didn't have it, I don't know what we'd do."
With an eye to the future, however, the couple recently decided to upgrade their stationary system to the TracVision L3, KVH's in-motion antenna system that can receive programming out on the road.
The TracVision L3 is able to sense a vehicle's motion and then adjust to identify, acquire and track satellite signals from a range of DirecTV-compatible satellite TV services.
In addition to the live TV programming, TracVision also can receive DirecTV's commercial-free music service. All of this helps the Danielses stay entertained and informed - and keep up with the business at hand, too.
"It's an important business tool for us, as we can use it to look at weather reports and find out about storms ahead of us," said Robert Daniels. "Sometimes you can go 100 miles out of the way and still get there faster than if you go through bad weather."
KVH Industries is the leader in designing and manufacturing satellite television antennae for mobile applications on land and at sea. For more information on the company's line of TracVision satellite TV systems, visit www.kvh.com.
