neps: March 2010 Archives

navtones.pngDavid Hasselhoff and William Daniels recorded voices are available from Navtones for your GPS. Here are commercials they recorded to help promote this. William Daniels does his best KITT and discusses ridding the world of evil, while David Hasselhoff makes sure you take the Hoff-ramp.

If you were at Knight Rider Festival, then you undoubtably heard these being played from the First Street Stage, as Navtones was a sponsor of the Festival. They were kind enough to share them with us so everyone can check them out.

William Daniels as KITT is available for $9.95 while David Hasselhoff will cost you a reasonable $6.95! Both are available on navtones.com

With an amazing event like Knight Rider Festival, it's impossible to capture everything ourselves. Thankfully the Festival had many great people posting their pictures and videos to share with everyone. We've tried to gather a collection of them here:
