Tellme where you want to go today

I’ve written a few times about Dash Express, the next-generation navigation device from Dash Navigation. It’s the world’s first two-way connected navigation system. That connectivity allows for some amazing features.

We launched one of those today at Tellme. Dash users who call 1-800-555-TELL or 1-800-CALL-411 and do a business search will have the business listing sent automatically to their Dash device. The listing arrives almost instantaneously. It looks something like this when it arrives:

A few clicks and your Dash will give you turn-by-turn directions to the business you selected. This solves a real need: using the power of speech to make entering businesses much easier.

We’re doing lots of exciting things in the automotive space. I’ll share them as they launch.

More about this on the Dash blog.

  1. Hi,

    I am looking for a DASH user in the LA or SF area! I am a German TV producer working on a feature about the DASH and would like to film you while using the DASH and maybe you can explain us your experiences. it will take a good hour of filming.
    We are already shooting on Wednesday, Sept 24, 2008. So it’s kind of urgent. Please give me a call or email me back: THANKS, Melanie ph#310 404 6644
