Dash Express GPS Pre-order

Dash on Monday began taking pre-orders for the Dash Express, its unique take on in-car GPS. The finished version of the previously reported device now comes in black but continues to sport a unique feature that connects either across a wide-area GPRS cellular link or short-range WiFi to get map data from a Yahoo Internet service instead of through a specialized channel; it can not only receive live traffic updates but new map information and allows local searches for businesses such as restaurants. A Send2Car feature permits a family member or a friend to upload markers in real-time to the mapping hardware.

The core system will arrive in the second half of February and sells for $600; using the Yahoo service will cost $10 per month with a two-year plan but can be had for $11 per month for one-year or on a contract-free basis for $13 per month. Updates to map information and to the software features of the Dash Express itself are completely free.
