ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Mountain View, California-based Dash Navigation, a technology company included in "Red Herring's" top 100 list for 2007. Paul Lego is the chief executive officer (CEO) of the company, which has 70 employees. Some of its key investors are Skymoon Ventures, Sequoia Capital, and Crescendo Ventures. Dash Navigation's Internet-connected Global Positioning System (GPS) feeds real-time traffic information into a central system that helps drivers avoid traffic jams. Drivers can also use the wireless Internet connection to find the nearest dim sum restaurant or Starbucks using Yahoo local search. In the growing GPS market, competitors like Tom-Tom are also starting to make use of real-time traffic updates, and Toyota recently announced a similar service in Japan.
