Videos: Dash Express GPS First To Connect To Internet

Somehow I find this a little hard to believe, but it turns out that the Dash Express is the first internet-connected GPS device, updating you with live information from the world wide web.

Other portable GPS devices are able to get some traffic info, but because the Dash Express connects to the Dash Driver Network, you are able to “select your route based on up-to-the-minute traffic data that is automatically and anonymously exchanged via the most reliable source — other Dash devices.” Presumably, every unit on the road is connected to this network, continually feeding new data to every other driver. Interesting proposition.

Another Internet-connected feature is what they call Send2Car. Any address from a web browser or Outlook window an be sent directly to the Dash Express device in your car, providing instant routing information. Sudden change in plans? No problem! Just have the organizers beam the new address your way.

The Dash Express is expected to go on sale in Q2 2008 for $599.
