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.

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.
