Leatherique makes a white crack filler that you mix with your dash color dye to fill the crack. To prevent cracks, avoid temperature swings and solar exposure. Clean and moisturize the dash. In short, just treat it like you would your own skin.

Is this the same material that I hear good stories about making the leather seats like new again? Also... do I have to dye it after filling the crack in? How does this work? Thanks again for the reply.

Check out Thomaspin's website and you can see how he fixed the leather and redyed it in his cars:
