GPS w/two-way Internet

GPS units with Internet connections are nothing new, but the Dash Express is one of the first to have "two-way" Internet -- meaning files and data can be sent to the Express with or without a driver's request. The routing software, for instance, not only uses historical data to avoid traffic, but also the positions of other Dash-equipped cars. Owners can also have third parties send them an address via the web or Microsoft Outlook, and when it comes time to expand the Express' database, new maps are downloaded automatically. Users can search their area with Yahoo! Local to locate nearby points of interest. The Express is presently on display at CES, but my already be available in select regions of the United States. Check for availability.
