    I like the idea of it.. but I don't like the toy like look. Especially how it says "Knight Rider" in big letters across the top of the unit.

    I dunno. I think I'd get some reflective tape and put it over the top... or black out with a marker Knigth Rider.
    I'm still abit pissed at them for making Kit a Mustang but thats another argument.

    The cool thing is William Daniels (voice of original Kitt) does the voice. But again, the knight rider lettering is just too much, especially when you bring a chick into your car forget about it.

    I got one on preorder at Radioshack. The KR will go in my Trans Am (mostly for show purposes than use) and my Garmin goes in the Solstice for daily use.

    I'm not sure if I'd ever buy it.

    I would be posing as Michael Knight. I could change my last name though. That might be fun. j/k

    I don't know...even though I made my car to be KITT like, I don't know if I could stand the thing saying "Jeremy" over and over again...

    Yeah thats true...
    I don't think I can get used of a "male" voice saying my name over and over again or giving me directions.
    Might as well call it Brokeback Knight Rider GPS

    I just got my confirmation that it is in process of shipping to the store. Just have to wait a couple days for it to arrive and then I can pick it up.

    Then I'll install the Turbo Boost button.

    I want pics and videos. You should mount the cd player in the center console and mount that as an indash.

    I got my KR GPS last Friday.

    I've been enjoying it all weekend! I don't care what some say but if you were ever a fan of the TV show, then this is a must have. Not only is it a really good gps (on par with my Garmin in ease of use and function) but it is just plain awesome for the fact that you are being guided around by the one and only KITT.
    *William Daniels* "in one-quarter of a mile, perform a U-turn"

    I would be just driving around and input my home location for navigation just to listen to KITT tell me where to go and watch the LED's on the unit modulate with his voice exactly like in the show.

    As many have said about the exterior detail of the unit not being done correctly. As in it should have been done to represent the dash rather than taking cues from KITT's exterior, I'm glad they did it this way. Using cues from the interior of KITT would have been over the top and the gloss black face with red LED's are simple enough to keep the unit "up-to-date" in appearance. In fact, I think its one of the best looking GPS's on the market.

    For those worrying about the unit saying your name over and over again...don't worry about that. It only does it once when the unit is powered up as a greeting.

    5 stars for the Knight Rider GPS

    ok, I'll admit it....I've found myself talking back to it. Though it has yet to initiate Turbo Boost when I request it.
