Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Manufacturer's Review--August 3, 2008
Ride the highways and byways guided by the voice of K.I.T.T.--the most iconic TV car of all time with Mio's Knight Rider portable GPS navigation unit. You'll enjoy an authentic Knight Rider experience wherever you roam with red LED light accents and voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions provided by the original voice of K.I.T.T. (William Daniels) to help you get out of any jams (traffic or otherwise). Boasting fast and accurate GPS reception, top-notch mapping, and a comprehensive POI (Points of Interest) database in addition to a 4.3-inch widescreen LCD and memory card expansion, all that's missing is Michael Knight and his patent leather jacket.



The Knight Rider GPS features a 4.3-inch LCD, pre-loaded maps of the U.S. and Canada, and over 4 million points of interest.


The K.I.T.T. indicator LED display moves in sync with the anamorphic equalizer for an authentic Knight Rider light show.
For an authentic Knight Rider experience, Mio collaborated with Navtones to include exclusive voice guidance and turn-by-turn directions featuring new recordings made by William Daniels as the voice of K.I.T.T. The device's integrated randomized greetings and custom names will welcome you to your navigation experience. You can be Michael if you're a purist, or choose from one of the list of 300 names. The Knight Rider GPS features an active LED voice synthesizer display that moves in sync with the voice, just as it did on K.I.T.T.'s dash, which provide a clear representation of all audio commands as they occur. The unit can even be programmed to advise you of speed limit infractions just in case you're applying too much turbo boost.



The opening credits from the Knight Rider TV series.
The highly sensitive SiRFInstantFixIII GPS receiver provides a rapid time-to-first-fix positioning, is WAAS enabled, and can acquire a signal even in urban canyons and under dense foliage. With pre-loaded maps of the U.S. and Canada, the Knight Rider GPS is ready to operate in minutes with no computer set-up required. Containing over 4-million POIs such as restaurants, hotels, gas stations and more, you are never more than a few keystrokes away from your destination. Simply select the category of your desired location, make your choice from the provided list, and you are ready to find just about anything you are looking for, giving you a local expert as a traveling companion.

Intelligently designed, the 4.3-inch anti-glare touchscreen LCD allows for more on-screen information and additional details about upcoming intersections. This full-color display also offers a 480 x 272-pixel resolution for easy at-a-glance information. The included cradle doesn't just hold your navigator, but will also charge the battery while you drive when connected to the power cable.

Specifications

  • Memory expansion via Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMedia (MMC) memory cards
  • USB 2.0 connectivity for transferring data and charging
  • Turn-by-turn voice guidance in 16 languages (including English, French, and Spanish)
  • Weight: 6.4 ounces

Tech Talk
WAAS: An acronym for Wide Area Augmentation System, WAAS augments the information provided by GPS satellites with a network of ground-based stations that compare the two sets of location data. A GPS that utilizes WAAS corrections can provide position accuracy of less then 3 meters, compared to the 6 to 12 meters with a normal GPS signal.

Product Description

Relive the '80s with the Knight Rider GPS from Mio. With a design inspired by this timeless classic, you'll feel that magic as you are given turn-by-turn driving directions by the original voice of K.I.T.T. To ensure the fantasy is complete, the Knight Rider GPS by Mio ships with over 300 male and female names pre-installed, so you'll be addressed by name as you head out to rid the world of evil, or just head down to the corner store for a gallon of milk. If that sounds good, check out the looks--the Knight Rider GPS also features a multi-segment LED readout that flashes in sync to the voice.

My Knight Rider GPS arrived the other day (9/25), and I have to say it is everything I'd hoped for. From the way KITT's voice greets you on power up, to the LEDs flashing on the sides when it talks, just fits perfectly. While the voice sounds a tad bit drier than the original KITT, given the actor (William Daniels) has aged 20 years, it's not surprising it isnt perfectly identical - still sounds like KITT though, no question.

I like how the position on the map is indicated by a little graphical KITT, rather than your typical arrow or circle. Gives it that extra little awesomeness you'd want from a Knight Rider based GPS system. Everything else your average GPS has is part of this package, it even has some extra options like subscriptions to traffic cam alerts.

My only complaint is that the map scrolling via manual touch leaves a little to be desired - it is not as smooth or easy to use as my previous Mio product (Digiwalker 168), but it still works OK. It also has plenty of greeting names in the database to choose from, tho it may not have everything you'd want, supposedly you can update it with more later on. The GPS has internal memory as well as an SD expansion slot.

All in all this is a great product, and fits perfectly with my Firebird, which while white, still looks enough like classic KITT ;) ... maybe its time for a paintjob.

This is a great little navigator, especially for the price. Easy to read screen, simple instructions. I previously thought this might be a cheap product, but it has never led me astray and has always been very accurate. You can program it to address you, using a wide list of pre-entered names (although some I have never heard of) and the red scanner, which activates every time is speaks, is enjoyable eye-candy. The map is usable in either two- or three-dimension and gives plenty of detail for the surrounding area. I also like that it can display current time, time to destination, and vehicle speed. It can also be programmed to dim the screen automatically at night, a great feature which reduces distraction.

I got this GPS as a gift over 2 years ago now. Before this I had a very simple model Magellin.

As far as a Knight Rider novelty item, this is very cool. The voice is great and the lights are a great feature as well. Other than than, there is nothing to brag about here.

This GPS is a very simple piece of equipment. I guess Mio thought the KITT voice and lights were enough when they made this one. There are absolutely no extras to it. Hardly any points of interest, doesn't speak street names, no traffic reports, nothing.

Despite it's lack of features, my biggest complaint with this device is not being able to re-route and skip streets. Several times while using this device, I had come to a street that was either closed or packed with traffic. There is no way to take a street out of the route! It will just keep telling you to get back on that street.

Another very, very annoying thing about it is powering it on. Every single time I turn this GPS on, I have to scroll through the owner agreement and click accept. If I haven't used it in a while, I also have to set the language, state, etc.

A problem I ran into with mine is it completely stopped holding it's charge. I could have this thing charging all day, but as soon as I unplug it it will shut right off. I honestly don't know how long this problem has been going on, as I usually have it plugged in while driving anyway.

Oh and the best part was trying to get a software update. I went on the Mio website to see if there was a software update for this device, and this GPS isn't even listed on the website! So I called the company, and they e-mailed me the steps to updating the software and maps on the device.

I was lucky enough to get this as a Christmas gift. I love it!

There are some great features:
1. Sounds like KITT.
2. You can select the street you want to get to without needing a house number. Believe it or not, this has come in handy.
3. You can set an alert. If your speed exceeds the limit you program, the GPS lights up and a tone sounds. Nice way to watch your speed without the cruise control. Shame they didn't program it for KITT to say something catchy instead of just the tone though.
4. The unit and display both look great.

The only negatives I have with the unit are:
1. Won't keep a charge. You'll need this plugged in when you use it.
2. When the unit is in the window mount, it is difficult to connect the power cord. You'll know if it's not plugged in completely because you'll get a low power warning and it will turn off.

If you're a fan of the original Knight Rider series and you need a GPS, treat yourself to some fun and go with the Mio Knight Rider GPS.

I like this unit alot. Granted for the same price, you could get better units but none of them talk to you in the KITT voice! Its done a decent job in helping me find my destinations and the KITT cool factor is just off the charts. I've also dealt with their tech support due to some quirky early issues and they were very helpful and responsive. Soooo...

Pros:
-Cool voice and lights.
-Tracking you, giving directions, and on the fly workarounds is as good as most other gps devices.
-Very quick in finding gps satellites
-Really good customer service
-free map upgrade if you purchase before Feb.

Cons:
-No traffic tracker
-touch screen can be a bit "under" sensitive
-few directions I've dealt with were a bit subpar
