Car Starter for Windows Phone 8 becomes Car Dash after the latest update

Car Dash

Car Starter is a dashboard app for Windows Phone 8 that places a decent amount of functionality at your fingertips while on the road.  The app was recently updated to version 2.0 that not only brings about a name change but also a few design changes.

Now known as Car Dash, the version 2.0 update adds a dial pad to the Contacts Page and a music selection feature to the Music Page.  The dial pad will allow you to dial a telephone number directly from the app.  The music selection feature lets you browse through your music collection to find what song you want to listen to.

Car Dash also receives a few tweaks under the hood to improve performance and fix bugs and Podcast Lounge was added to the app shortcut list.

If you are looking for a decent dashboard app for your Windows Phone 8 device, Car Dash is one to consider.  The base app is free with two in-app purchase options.  If you want to unlock the NFC feature, it will cost you $.99.  An hourly and three day weather forecast is available as an add-on for $.99 as well.  You can also bundle both NFC and weather add-ons for $1.49.

You can find Car Dash here in the Windows Phone Store.

Good app

DaveGx says:

Good. Car starter was a bit misleading of a title.

TJWINS says:

Car Starter was a stupid name for this app in the first place.

DaveGx says:

WPC, you guys have any contacts at Zynga? Would love to have someone put some pressure on them to fix their broken paid games. Words with friends is in awful shape, yet no update since 03/2013. Unacceptable to charge for and refuse to fix a broken app.

Have you tried contacting Zynga yourself directly? It would be great if the likes of WPCentral got in touch with them to put some pressure their way but in the meantime, anyone who has bought their games should do the same.

Litsie says:

Is there an alternative where i can choose my own apps on the dash?

jlynnm350z says:

It's cold outside. Thanks, bye.

losty700 says:

I thought there's already an app called cardash

Chacness says:

Yup there is.

Litsie says:

And the name is?

arbetaren says:

Correct. The name is Cardash without a space.

TallAssRob says:

There is another app called CarDash. It has very different functionality from Car Dash though.

immyperez says:

I thought an official version of something similar from Nokia was supposed to be coming?

toraji says:

Hee ik begreep borri

losty700 says:

So they couldn't think of another name since cardash app already exist.

Litsie says:

Thanx for the suggestions

Can't change destinations or search for new ones. Otherwise very good

TallAssRob says:

You can add a destination by clicking on the "add dest." button on the application bar on the main page. You can also change existing destinations by clicking the 3-dot menu and choosing "manage destinations."

Hi. I know. It was not responding to edit and delete and all searches said they were invalid searches even by postcode. However, after a reboot the app is working as it should be. Could have been a glitch.
