Pros: Connectivity! Integrated search feature. Accuracy. Traffic data.
Cons: Map redraw rate is a bit on the choppy side. A little slower refresh than Tomtom on a 640x480 WinMobile platform.
Summary: While the device has it's minor flaws, the positives clearly outweigh it. I've been using it all day today and I absolutely love being able to search for the nearest gas station sorted by price, the nearest favorite restaurant, the nearest whatever. And for the most part, it's integrated seamlessly.
I did find it odd though, that the cnet review dinged it on accuracy. The Dash Express I received works flawlessly in terms of accuracy - none of this 1 to 3 blocks off stuff. It worked about as well as my SirfIII Tomtom device.
The only negative? The map's drawing rate isn't the smoothest. I had a Dell x50v a while back with butter smooth draw rate and I sorely miss it in the Dash Express. Hopefully they'll be able to improve the draw rate in future upgrades.
Overall, this is a more than capable GPS with a highly functional search engine, all working seamlessly.
