December 15, 2006 Dash will be showing a very interesting device at the coming 2007 International CES in Las Vegas – the first Internet-connected GPS device. As it’s connected live to the rest of the world, the first GPS device with two-way connectivity, Dash Express has a rich set of real-time features to help consumers make smart decisions behind the wheel. It will for example, get you where you want to go in the fastest time possible using information generated from other Dash devices in the company’s driver network. You can select from three routes for any destination based on accurate travel time forecasts from the network. It’ll also enable you to find virtually anything -- people, places, products and services -- using Internet-enabled local search, send addresses from any computer right to your dashboard and make sure you always have the most up-to-date maps and software. Dash will be available in California in spring 2007, and will be available nationally in fall 2007.
