Dash Express

PC Magazine
28 May 2008
  • Conclusion: The Dash Express is the first consumer GPS that incorporates cellular technology to keep connected to the Web. Impressive features such as Yahoo! LiveSearch, over-the-air software and map updates, and community-based live traffic information provide a glimpse of the future of GPS. But for now, you can get a more full-featured device for less money.
  • Pros: Built-in GPRS technology. Live traffic updates from other Dash users and third-party providers. Yahoo! LiveSearch. No need to connect to a PC for software and map updates.
  • Cons: Bulky and heavy. Lacks multisegment routing. Can't specify routes to avoid.

Review: Dash Express GPS

25 May 2008
  • Conclusion: While I initially docked off a few points for the Dash's lag and usability issues, it gains most of those back with the promise of future features and bug fixes via over-the-air software updates. The open content platform has so much potential. Great companies are already publishing some interesting applications for the Dash. One of the more popular Dash applications lets you find and report police speed traps.

Dash Express review

GPS Tracklog
6 May 2008
  • Excerpt: I’ve had the Dash Express for over a month now and have been enjoying testing it out. The Dash is a revolutionary new type of GPS navigation device that brings Internet search to your car along with crowdsourced live traffic. The cellular connection built in to every Dash unit sends anonymous location data to Dash servers. This data is then translated to traffic flow speeds that are updated on all Dash units every 15 minutes.

Dash Express Review

LAPTOP Magazine
26 March 2008
  • Summary: While the Dash Express' 3D navigation experience needs to be improved, the ability to send out updates to connected Dash units means that users should get software improvements regularly and not have to update hardware anytime soon. The Dash's traffic data is a major improvement over current GPS devices. Not only will it earn an army of admirers who are sick of traffic jams, but it will change the navigation industry for good.
