this is why i love silicon valley. here is a product that we’ve all talked about and assumed would one day come, yet waited assuming some big car company would just do it (so obvious). as a pilot, i’ve gotten used to sophisticated avionics that pretty much flies the plane. it’s always been odd though to get back into the car and deal with such primitive systems.
anyway, sounds like companies like Dash are going to quickly change that and even surpass the plane cockpit (which still doesnt talk to the net).
ironically, it has been reported that bill gates’ first business idea was to measure highway traffic and sell the data. wonder if he’ll get back into that business. i’ve wanted this ever since i commuted daily to palo alto and to monitor morning radio to figure out whether 101 or 280 was blocked that day.
