Last Holidays the Dash Express GPS device made big waves with its innovative two-way internet connectivity. According to GigaOm Dash is discontinuing the Dash GPS device that finally was actually affordable on Amazon.com ($299).

If you are a Dash Express owner you can still of course use your device and supposedly maintenance updates will continue.
