Dash Navigation Open Application Platform
We got word last night that Dash Navigation
was announcing some cool new plans at Web 2.0 today. The big news is that the Dash platform will be open to third party applications. Since the Dash will be internet connected, it allows for a LOT of action behind the scenes. (Think Google Map plug-ins for your car.) You will also be able to program some routes and send information from your desktop to your car. This sounds like it is ripe for a business implementation with a central command sending all sorts of data to its fleet of vehicles.
For instance, with a Zillow plug-in, you’ll be able to profile house values as you drive down a street, while potential other additions might be crime databases that show you areas that have had a rash of crimes lately. The potential is endless, but the potential for distraction and screwing up the device is probably endless too.
I am simple excited about traffic capabilities with historical average speeds. Can’t wait to try it out.
