NEW YORK, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- What do women, Volvo drivers and Rochester, NY all have in common? They each represent the best drivers in their category, according to a new report from NYC-based tech start-up, Dash, which analyzed a snapshot of five million miles driven by American car owners.
Dash has a mobile product (Dash – Drive Smart) that makes any car a 'smart car'. It analyzes driving behavior of the user with over 300 metrics in real time, including factors like speeding, hard breaking, acceleration, idling and fuel efficiency, as well as road conditions and weather. This is compiled into the 'Dash Score', out of 100.
Which drivers are 'Fast & Furious'?
Dash analyzed five millions miles of driving in early 2014 and found fascinating results:
Dash works by connecting your smartphone to your car using a low cost, self-installed device, called an On-Board Diagnostic unit (OBD II, which retails as low as $10 on Amazon). The device works on any car on the road since 1996. Dash helps drivers improve their driving, making the roads safer, greener and more social. Dash drivers can save an average of $1,500 per year on running costs.
The service connects to platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Google and Smart Things, as well as SMS alerts for family, friends and colleagues.
Dash – Drive Smart is available for Android (iPhone this summer) in the USA and internationally in Canada, Europe, Middle East and Africa. Dash has been downloaded in over 100 countries.
