mio-knightrider-gps

Mio is set to launch the Knight Rider GPS.  In case your second guessing this post and pontificating about what marketing ploys Mio employed – ok, ok than your half right. The Knight Rider GPS will include all the normal GPS qualities, including a 4.3-inch touch screen, turn-by-turn navigation, etc.  What’s really cool, though, is that the voice navigation is K.I.T.T. from the tv show Knight Rider.  Mio’s also been grateful enough to include voice synced LEDs on either side of the screen and a voice warning system about speeding (i.e. too much turbo Micheal).  All we need is a sprinkle of ‘The Hoff’ and a leather jacket to complete our flash back.

Available later this quarter for $270
