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.

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.
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.Read more ›
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.
-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.
-No traffic tracker
-touch screen can be a bit "under" sensitive
-few directions I've dealt with were a bit subpar
