If you're a child of the 80's, you may very well have gone ballistic when news of Mio's Knight Rider GPS hit cyberspace. The sat-nav unit is not only styled like the original Knight Industries Two Thousand, but even has blinking red lights along the flanks (just like KITT's voice modulator) and features voice directions recorded by the man himself, William Daniels. (What do you mean, who is William Daniels?! He was the original voice of KITT!) You can have it call you Michael and feel like The Hoff himself, or select from a long list of pre-recorded name to have KITT speak to you when that gets old.

The boys over at Knight Rider Online got a hold of a preview unit and did a short video review, which you can check out after the jump. Thanks for the tip, joe!

      I would love a GPS with the voice of Ray Romano.

      I would drive into a wall just to turn it off.

      I'd let it call me Michael as much as it wants, seeing as how that's my name and all
      • 6 Years Ago
      I might pay for that.

      I think the concept is pretty cool. I was a huge fan of Knight Rider as a kid growing up in the '80s. I have to say, though, the voice (which is the only reason to get the thing) doesn't sound that great. Maybe it's because William Daniels has aged, but it doesn't really sound like KITT did in the 80's. KITT's voice was pitched slightly higher and he had better diction.
