The Dash Platform
We will give your smart phone the attention it deserves.
Today’s smartphones are incredible devices. They provide a level of connectivity, accessibility, and usability that we want from every device we use. The Smartphone has become a part of everyday life for many of us. We have an intimate connection with our smartphone but that connection is ripped from us when we get into the car.
Smartphones are evolving at a fantastic rate, new phones with increased capability hit the market every 3-4 months. Traditional car stereos cannot keep up. To leverage consumers investment in their smart phone,we created a new class of car stereo, The Dash Platform. Imagine having a new car stereo with every smart phone upgrade. Imagine expanding and at the same time simplifying your car audio experience.
Dash doesn’t require that you learn a new interface to use the stereo. You already know how to use your phone to access your music, navigation, make phone calls, and the incredible number of other apps in your phone’s marketplace.
While phones are very personal devices, people get new ones every few years. You may remain loyal to the same brand or move to a new company. No matter how frequently you update phones, Dash will be there ready to support you. Our innovative interchangeable faceplate design allows you to keep your phone at the center of your car.
Dash is a simple two component platform. Dash is a double din standard car stereo. This means that Dash is made to fit in car stereo spaces that are 4 inches tall by 7 inches wide. We analyzed the car stereo market and decided to consider depth size by making Dash only 4 inches deep. This allows Dash to fit into more vehicles, more spaces, and provide more room for cabling and installation.
This is where your phone docks and it is the interchangeable part of Dash. The faceplate connects your phone with the Dash stereo. Your phone will charge while docked in the faceplate. Your audio will be wonderfully heard over your car’s speakers. Your phone calls will be hands free and heard over your car’s speakers because Dash has integrated Bluetooth. The faceplate is secured to the Dash Head Unit using neodymium magnets. These magnets do not interfere with the operation of your phone. Our unique system allows you to buy different phones and continue to use Dash.
Our faceplates work with many smaller sized cases like Apple’s Bumper case. The larger military grade phone cases are currently not compatible with Dash.
This is the part of the Dash platform that is installed in your car and replaces the current stereo. The Dash Head Unit is the constant part of your Dash car audio experience. Our audio system is state of the art. Dash is built utilizing class D amplifiers at 50 Watts per channel to power your front and rear speakers. Dash also has three pre-amplifier outputs at 4 Volts.
You will upgrade and buy new phones through the life of your car. We want to make that transition simple, easy, and cost effective. You do not replace the Dash Head Unit each time you just buy a new Dash Faceplate.
