Anyone see the new Knight Rider GPS by MIO,
Not as good functionally as my garmin nuvi, But much better Kool factor
These after market GPS's are SOooo much better than ours

Aftermarket GPS are almost always better. The benefit of the oem system is an oem clean install.

Add continued navigation through compass and speedo when you lose GPS signal.

I work at Radio Shack and we have a demo unit on the counter. If you want to play with one go in and see for yourself. Most stores should have it out or maybe in the back, if you act serious I'm sure they'll bust it out and let you play with it if it's not set up. I'm honestly not impresssed with it, especially at the price point. The voice doesn't really sound like KITT to me; it kinda sounds like he has a cold. Also Mio is kinda an off-brand GPS, I mean they're not as bad as Navigon or that very weird unit that you can get at Wal-mart (Someone brought it in once looking for a power connector and it was completely nonstandard; I had to turn him away. It was like $79 for a widescreen unit when the cheapest widescreens you can get from a good name are TomToms for about $199 on sale.)
