Mio Knight Rider in Summer
Mio today firmed up details of its Knight Rider GPS device for North America. In addition to a look that reflects the original Knight Rider series' KITT car, the normal navigation voice has been replaced by original KITT voice William Daniels; turning on the device gives a randomized greeting with Daniels speaking any one of 300 first names as well as turn-by-turn directions.
The GPS device also promises a true mid-range GPS unit with a 4.3-inch touchscreen, pre-supplied maps of the US and Canada, and four million points of interest spread across both countries. Mio is launching the Knight Rider GPS slightly earlier than expected and hopes to ship it during the summer for its originally suggested $270 price.
