KVH Industries said today that current TracVision satellite TV customers can upgrade to the latest HD7 system and get a rebate of up to $2,000, depending on which system they are upgrading. The promotion runs through June 30, 2010. The deal requires the customer to return to KVH the old system’s circuit boards via an RMA issued by KVH. Full details of the deal are here.

Here are the rebate values for each system:

TracVision 4, G4 or G4HP — $750

TracVision M5 — $1,000

TracVision 6, G6, G6HP, G8 — $1,500

TracVision M7, M9 — $2,000

The TracVision HD7 has the unique ability to track DIRECTV’s Ka-bank and Ku-band satellites (all three) simultaneously. KVH said the system’s tracking ability allows it to maintain signal lock even when the boat is cruising at high speed and through rough seas. The HD7 also includes KVH’s new IP-enabled antenna control unit, which is equipped with an Ethernet connection for onboard networks, a built-in WiFi interface, and a USB port to make system setup and management as easy as opening a web browser and maintenance as simple as plugging in a USB thumb drive.

KVH says its free new TracVision iPhone application is the easiest way to control the HD7. According to the company, customers can “use it to check satellite TV signal strength, switch to secondary satellites, download and automatically install antenna software updates, and send information directly to KVH technical support.”
