Garmin nuvi GPS with Knight Rider Voice

Ever wished your car could talk like the TransAm did in the adventure TV series Knight Rider from the 1980s? Well, you could get the exact same voice as KITT’s thanks to NavTones. The company has contracted the original voice actor, William Daniels, for its downloadable GPS voice directions.

NavTones announced today the release of their exclusive KITT GPS Voice for Garmin nuvi portable navigation devices and the new Android-powered Garminfone from T-Mobile.

“With our KITT Voice for Garmin GPS, we want to make millions of 1980's childhood dreams come true," said 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."  

You should know that 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. This is also the first GPS voice download that calls drivers (or passengers) by name. Just like KITT did with Michael Knight.

"Knight Rider continues to be one of our most beloved retro properties and the KITT GPS Voice is proof that consumers can't get enough of it," said Calvin Lim, Director of Mobile Sales, Universal Partnerships & Licensing. "Having KITT virtually navigate you around town allows you to feel like Michael Knight every time you step in the car - minus the turbo boosts and oil slicks, of course."

The KITT voice download is available for $9.95 at the following link and installs directly on any compatible Garmin nuvi device.
