Dash navigator's latest update rolls out today, allowing for a few key improvements.
• My Route records your local paths between two points (or locations within 1/2 mile of those points) and recommends the route along side traditional GPS routes next time you make the trip.
• Searches for points of interest "along… »
The Dash Express GPS's API opened up about six weeks ago, and so far Dash says there've been dozens of apps developed since then, most of them in the truly useful category, like weather or speed traps. And then there's a Twitter client. Yes, the Dash will now tweet your exact location to everyone following you,… »
The Dash Express GPS just received its first historic traffic model update using the live Dash data gathered by users. That'll help predict traffic in areas where no Dash or other trusted data sources have been in the last 15 minutes. By end of month, a software update is coming with tweaks in performance, stability… »
That blurry GPS shot above is of the Dash Express with its IP-enabled mesh network of traffic monitoring. But most of you don't have such tech in your GPS, you've got something else without live traffic data. For those of you who have GPS devices without live traffic, do you use a phone with Google Maps Traffic to… »
This video is what driving with Dash is usually like. At night, it can be especially undramatic, but even when there is a lot of traffic, the truth is, Dash doesn't reroute you often. I use the map as a guide and just drive around the reds (when there are reds). It's funny how the density of traffic data varies time… »
We've been ranting about this internet-connected Dash Express GPS for months. Over the past week, we were given the opportunity to test it out for ourselves on both coasts, over a thousand miles, through intense city driving in SF and NY and road trips into the wilds. It's the real deal, delivering out of the box the… »
These days, all but the most high-end (that is, overpriced) Garmin nuvis cost below $600, so it's great news that Dash—that fascinating experiment in "connected" GPS—has lowered the price of the Express from $600 to $400, and is selling them immediately on Amazon.com. If you pre-ordered, fear not: You will only be… »

We're excited about the upcoming Dash Express GPS because it corrects so much of what's gone wrong with in-car navigation. In the end, you get the same green, yellow and red traffic indicators on highways that Google maps gets, plus that on some local roads. No other GPS has this. Because each unit is basically a… »
Today we learned that the seductively interactive Dash Express GPS navigator is using the OpenMoko open-source mobility platform that led to the Neo 1973 smartphone. This makes the Dash the first product based on OpenMoko's GTA0X reference design, with GPS hardware designed to order by OpenMoko and its parent company,… »

After that, the data link will cost $10 to $13 monthly on top of that. Pricey to be… »
