Dash Express is a next-generation, connected navigation platform and service that delivers timely and relevant information that drivers need in the car on a daily basis. This includes real-time traffic information, current gas prices and local search capabilities powered by Yahoo. After Dash’s recent product and services launch in March 2008, the innovation continues.

Come hear what Dash has been working on since launch, and how the company is opening its platform up to the world to let others deliver powerful information that drivers need on the road.
