Mio Launches Knight Rider GPS: Turbo Boost Not Included

By now, you’ve probably seen the new Knight Rider GPS unit, but you haven’t heard it yet. Well, the nice folks over Knight Industries Two Thousand (and Mio) stopped by our offices the other day, and we took some footage of the new device, which should retail in August for $269.95. Aside from the kitsch factor, the Knight Rider GPS has some pretty decent specs: a SiRFInstantFixII GPS receiver, a 4.3-inch touchscreen (65,000 colors), an SD/MMC card slot, and a 4 million POI database. The 6 ounce, 5.5 x 3.2 x 0.8 inch unit will also be programmed with about 300 names to start with. Not surprisingly, the default name is “Michael.” Featuring the voice of the original K.I.T.T., William Daniels, the unit greets you with several different catch phrases. Check out the video below.
