Has anyone out there put a Weinguard Roadtrip T4 on their boat?

The system truckers use to report their trip progress.

Do a search on: Weinguard Roadtrip T4

Upon further reading and comments, I was totally wrong. Sorry about spreading rumors. Please consider this as my humble retraction.
Honest, I was never a reporter nor associated with any media outlets.

Search works!!!
---- but the real name is Winegard Roadtrip T4 for mobile (RV) satellite TV. etc
..........not that I knew what a Winegard is either -perhaps something to do with protecting your expensive bottles of red wine!!

It's a small satellite TV system from what I can tell targeted for RV's.

If it was something to stop red wine spillage, I'd be interested.
For a TV ...meh

It is a satellite TV system for either Dish or Direct TV. The equivalent by KLM or Intellien cost well over $2000 but Weinguard is $1299. I spoke to 2 techs with the company and got conflicting stories. They are advertised to provide TV to people driving in an RV seamlessly.
The trap is that it does not wake up unless going 10+ mph. The sharper tech said there were dip switches to overcome that. I have the map of how to format.

I just wondered if anyone had tried this system.
