Ask and it shall be given. Also, here's what Knight Industries has been working on for the past 20 years. Seems like they went backwards a bit.

That's just bizarre. Why would I want LEDs shining back in my face from my GPS unit? And they comment on it's 'clean lines' when if you look at any other Mio product, it actually has much less stuff on the face of it.

Normally I love this kind of thing, but this one just doesn't do it for me.

Besides, who wants the KITT voice when you could have Mr. T or Gary Busey (!) lead you around?

Eddie Izzard too!

YouTube user AskGLaDOS does a dead-on GLaDOS impression... somehow.

It would be great if there were a text-to-speech synthesizer that could mimic that weirdly lilting voice...

Clearly, you are not married.

What I really want is a GPS voice pack that speaks in the voice of the turrets (yes, I know it's the same voice actor). I love those little guys.

You linked to the wrong place! Go here and click "Listen Here" (yay Flash-breaks-web-nav-model!) to hear examples. caution: eye-bleeding web design

Also his phone ring tones make my sides hurt.
