The pulsing flashing red lights up both sides of the unit are a nice touch, but there’s one extra magical feature inside. Maker Mio is believed to be getting William Daniels – the original voice of KITT – onboard to provide the spoken driving instructions.
The Mio device apparently says “Hello Michael, where do you want to go today?” when you boot it up. Handy if your name happens to be Michael and you’re obsessed with a frankly quite rubbish 1980s TV show that was mainly meant for children. Massively annoying for anyone else.
