Fast Satellite Acquisition Time, Superior Reception In All Weather Conditions, An Extensive Geographic Coverage Area
Burlington, Iowa, December 3, 2004. Winegard has been a leader in mobile TV reception for the RV market for many years. Winegard has now entered the automotive market, applying its advanced satellite antenna tracking technology to the new RoadTripXLPTM.
“Unlike the Movin’ ViewTM Series and the low profile LP-1000 in-motion satellite tracking systems that preceded it, the RoadTripXLP was specifically designed with a 33.4 inch width to fit between the roof luggage rails of SUVs, Minivans, conversion vans and limousines, while using the same advanced DVB circuitry and GPS technology for fast and reliable satellite acquisition. Just as they do at home, these vehicle owners can now enjoy the same consistently clear digital programming on the move, as RV owners have for years” said Reed Brown, Director of Winegard’s Mobile Group.
When Winegard introduced the Movin’ ViewTM Series of domed in-motion mobile satellite TV systems for the RV market, it was first to provide automatic toggle (switching) between multiple satellites using a remote control. Winegard next focused on a low-profile version of in-motion mobile satellite TV systems, introducing the low profile LP-1000, only six inches in height, ensuring easy overhead clearance for even the tallest RVs.
The RoadTripXLP covers an extensive geographic area. The lightweight RoadTrip XLP, weighing only 62 lbs and only 6 inches high, mounts securely to the rooftop of most SUVs and minivans for an aerodynamic, integrated look. The unit is easy to install and has tamper-resistant mounting hardware to deter theft. It also is removable when a vehicle is sold. The antenna housing is constructed of rust- and impact-resistant plastic which is sealed to keep out all elements, and can be finished to match virtually any vehicle color.
Winegard’s RoadTripXLP and other new mobile products will be on display at CES 2005 in Booth #6530 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“At Winegard, we are excited to add the RoadTrip XLP to our line of mobile satellite products,” said Randy Winegard, president, Winegard Company. “With its superior reception and low-profile design, this unit is an exciting and affordable addition to any vehicle.”
