Drive back to the 80s, Turn Your Garmin nuvi GPS Into KITT

Posted by at 3:22 am on July 8, 2010

Well TV failed a few years ago at trying to bring back the 1982 TV hit Knight Rider.   But that hasn’t stop NavTone from giving you the Knight Industries Two Thousand, or ‘KITT.’ as a   NavTone.

Today NavTones has released a   KITT GPS Voice for Garmin nuvi portable navigation devices and the new Android-powered Garminfone from T-Mobile. That is right kids, you too can have William Daniels, reprising his role as the voice for KITT, give turn-by-turn directions.

Once installed, drivers are treated not only to turn-by-turn directions in the voice of KITT, but also to exclusive randomized commentary. In typical KITT fashion, many lines are delivered with a humorous punch such as, “If you’re not going to listen to me, just turn me off” in the event of a route recalculation.

“With our KITT Voice for Garmin GPS, we want to make millions of 1980’s childhood dreams come true,” says Will Andre, CEO of Wanderlust Media, adding, “so we strove to replicate the envied relationship between human and machine made famous on Knight Rider, by randomizing the commentary coming out of the device to create a much more lifelike and dynamic driving experience.”

Personalization

For the first time ever, this is a GPS voice download that calls drivers (or passengers) by name. Just as he did with Michael Knight in every episode of Knight Rider   Users can select from more than 700 names.

Price and Download

The KITT voice download is just US$9.95 at http://www.NavTones.com/KITT and installs directly on to any compatible Garmin nuvi device worldwide in just a few simple clicks. For a complete list of compatible devices, please check NavTone’s website.
