Mio Knight Rider GPS
TomTom who? Watch out! Mio is about to give you a hard lesson! The unveiled the new Mio Knight Rider, a GPS with authentic KITT voice that features a clean, touch-screen interface, turn-by-turn directions, pre-loaded maps of the United States or Canada, and over four million different points of interest.
It’s the first time since the TV Movie Knight Rider 2000 - has William Daniels been involved in anything officially Knight Rider. In fact it had been rumored for quite some time that Daniels wanted nothing to do with the series. We are thrilled that this was not the case, and now we have this device here, complete with newly recorded dialog by Mr. Daniels (this isn’t reused TV clipings, it’s 100% original recordings!).
One of the great unique features with this concept, is that KITT will address the driver by their first name. Simply set your name from the pre-recorded list of hundreds, and off you go. You can be Michael if you want to be a purist, but if your name is Aaron, Joe or David, you can have that personalized experience.
They’ve also taken several design cues from the Knight 2000. The device has dual nose type designs on the left and right, complete with a red type of scanner insert. However, the actual use of this scanners LEDs is to be KITTs voice box.
MSRP is about $270, and we expect the final product to be released in the fall.
