Dash: New Kleiner-Sequoia start-up delivers Internet-connected navigation device for cars
A Mountain View start-up called Dash has raised $16 million from investors including two of Silicon Valley's highest profile venture firms to deliver the first automobile navigation device designed to be permanently linked to the Internet.
From our sneak peek of this, we think the device holds a lot of promise. But in some places Internet connections are going to be shaky, so whether you like it or not may depend on where you will be driving with it. In December, the company got a $10 million injection from Sequoia Capital and Kleiner Perkins, to add to $6 million in previous funding. (See the company's release here)
