Review: Mio Knight Rider GPS

CNET editor Bonnie Cha reviews the Mio Knight Rider GPS.

If you ever dreamed as a child (or as an adult) of owning a car like KITT of Knight Rider fame, you're dream is about to come true...sort of. Unless you're rolling in money, you can't have the actual Trans Am or David Hasselhoff, but you can have the next best thing: the Mio Knight Rider GPS. The GPS manufacturer partnered with Universal Studios to come up with a Knight Rider-themed portable navigation device (PND) that uses the actual voice of William Daniels (the actor who provided the voice of KITT) to present you with audible directions. It is, indeed, a trip to hear KITT tell you where to go, but it's more than just a novelty act. The Knight Rider GPS is an easy-to-use and solid entry-level PND that comes with a pretty reasonable price tag of $269. The Mio Knight Rider GPS certainly won't be for everyone, but definitely makes for a nice present for any Knight Rider or car fanatics in your life.
