Yes, that's right, I said KNIGHT RIDER GPS. And none of that Val Kilmer crap, neither. This unit has the voice of William f'n Daniels!


    Underneath the hood it's basically the same Mio kit as you'd expect, only it boots up by saying "Hello Michael, where do you want to go today?" uses a cartoon Trans-Am to represent your car, and features dual LED scanner lights on each side.


I don't think I've ever wanted anything this hard in my entire life.

Hehehe... I think this is cool. I can't believe it took them this long to make one. Now they just need to make a Majel Barrett voiced "Computer" GPS with appropriate sound effects. I would be all over that.

Brilliant! Someone get her on the phone!

I was trying to think of other cool scifi vehicles, but all I could come up with was the TARDIS. I can't imagine a GPS that only says "VWORP VWORP" would be terribly useful.

Also, FYI, you can select from a list of prerecorded names for the KR unit. I didn't think it was possible to want it any more than I already did.

"I'm sorry, Dave. I can't do that."

When you turn off the engine, it could sing "Daisy..."

They should fill the thing with wisecracks for those who don't exactly follow the directions.

I see you've decided to take your OWN route. Sure. Why am I even here?"

I didn't tell you to take this exit. Do you have to go to the bathroom AGAIN?

It looks awsome. But I'll think I'll wait until they coome out with version 2.0, which will hopefully come with a walkie-talkie watch communicator and a turbo boost for my car.

It's not a GPS, but I think this will work equally well as girl repellant.

Unlikely.

The only girls that knew what it was would think it was cool. The rest would think it was "cute" or "strange".

Is it portable?




Don't make the Professor angry. You wouldn't like him, when he's angry.
