Ok, so im a TechTV junkie, but ya gotta keep up, else you'll be lookin for that "new-fangled XM satellite radio" thingy, like it just came out. Yet over 1 million people subscribe (me too :) .
TechTV shot this one out (and yes its somewhat old news).
If anyone has a spare $3500 that they dont want to put toward coil overs or an airbag system, maybe Satellite TV is your thing :shock:
they just did a write-up on that system on autoweek.com
check out the dish that needs to be mounted on the roof

I've always wondered about stuff like that. Music I can understand, having a slamming system is all good cause you can enjoy that on the way. But TV's and all just dont make sense for the driver. However, I wouldnt mind watching TV or a Movie on my lunch break @ work, or taking a break on a road trip.

TV makes alot of sense to me as the driver. I used to drive 3000 miles every other weekend and the only thing that kept me awake was DVD's. Some (or all) might say it is unsafe to watch and drive but it is better than driving and falling asleep. This Tracvision dish is just to big to look right on the Scion. They can be painted to match, but even then it just wouldn't "blend in" with the roof. They do alot of them around here on H2's and they look great on there. By the way, the price just dropped to $2000 on these.
