Dashboard Symbols App

Dashboard Symbols AppWhat is that warning light on your dashboard? Is it safe to keep driving or do you need help? The Dashboard Symbols App is for the majority of drivers who sometimes need to translate the Automotive Hieroglyphics inhabiting your instrument panel. This is your ‘Rosetta Stone’!

Drivers are besieged by an ever growing number of advanced features and an ever growing number of warning lights and tell tales used to describe them. Warning lights that can pop on seemingly at random with the potential to panic even the most seasoned of drivers.


At our goal is to give drivers the tools they need to quickly and easily understand what it is they see — to help them understand the language their vehicle is speaking.

** Note that we have an unresolved freeze problem with the version for Apple products. It will be back on line as soon as possible…
