Dash Navigation Becomes First to Add Yahoo! Local Search Capabilities to the Car Dash Delivers Most Relevant Information to the Dashboard Giving Drivers

Power to Search for and Find Virtually Anything

    MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dash Navigation(TM) Inc.
 today announced that it is teaming up with Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq:   YHOO),
 allowing Dash Express(TM) users to search Yahoo! Local for nearby products,
 services or businesses from their cars -- a GPS industry first.
     With Yahoo! Local and Dash Express, local search in the car is becoming
 a simple and easy-to-use reality. When a user enters their search term into
 their Dash Express, the device wirelessly begins a Yahoo! Local search on
 the web. Within seconds, the results are formatted into address cards and
 presented to the user as a simple listing of nearby businesses. With the
 press of a button on the device, the Dash user is routed to their desired
     Yahoo! Local also allows drivers to use a wide variety of search terms
 to get relevant results. For example, a Dash user who types "croissants"
 will see a list of bakeries, cafes and stores in the area that sell the
 pastry. Another Dash user who discovers that the local hardware store is
 out of a needed plumbing item could type "plumbing supplies" from their car
 in the parking lot and see a list of other nearby stores with directions to
 each location. In many cases, relevant Yahoo! Local ratings and reviews are
 also presented to offer users instant feedback from other consumers about
 merchants and services.
     "When you use Yahoo! Local search in your car, you will be amazed by
 the freedom that it delivers," said Dash Navigation Chief Executive
 Officer, Paul Lego. "For the first time, drivers will be able to leave
 their homes knowing that they can easily find whatever they need -- right
 from their car. It's that simple."
     "Yahoo! is committed to providing innovative ways to help consumers
 find relevant information when, where and how they want it," said Paul
 Levine, general manager of Yahoo! Local. "Working with Dash takes us one
 step closer to that goal and provides consumers with another meaningful and
 relevant way to interact with our products."
