The maps and software on your Polaris off-road vehicle's touchscreen display can be updated using a computer and a USB. Note: Over-the-air (Wi-Fi) map and software updates are not available on off-road vehicles at this time.
Before updating your display, syncing your rides and places is recommended. To do this, either log in to your RIDE COMMAND account on your RIDE COMMAND display or pair your display with the RIDE COMMAND app. If you are unable to sync with RIDE COMMAND, saving your rides and places to a USB drive is recommended. For more information, read Syncing RIDE COMMAND Data.
To update the software and maps on the 7-inch RIDE COMMAND display on your Polaris Off-Road Vehicle, follow these steps:
1. Visit the RIDE COMMAND website to access a list of vehicle display updates.
2. Select the Off-Road display that corresponds to the one on your vehicle.
1. Click the button to download the most recent software.
2. The downloaded file does not need to be opened on your computer. It only needs to be copied to a USB drive.
3. Save the file to a removable USB drive. For five-button displays, the USB must be 8GB or larger and FAT32 formatted. For seven-button displays, the USB must be 32GB or larger, with exFAT® format.
4. Plug the USB drive into your vehicle's USB port and turn on the RIDE COMMAND display. To identify your vehicle's USB port location, refer to your Owner's Manual.
5. Once the USB drive is plugged into the USB port on your vehicle, turn on the RIDE COMMAND display. Press the Polaris logo at the top of the screen (On five-button displays, press the Apps button). Tap SETTINGS. Tap GENERAL from the tabs on the left. Scroll down to UPDATE SOFTWARE.
6. Select the file you want to install. "Newest" will be automatically displayed next to the newest version detected on the USB drive.
7. The display will reboot and install the software.
The maps update will be found on the right-hand side of the screen on the RIDE COMMAND Map and Software updates page. Note: RIDE COMMAND does not support third-party maps.
1. Download your selected map region. You do not need to include the base map if you already are seeing roads and base map details on your display. Note: Including the base map will take significantly longer.
2. Once downloads are complete, drag and drop the file(s) onto your USB drive. The file or file do not need to be opened on your computer. It only needs to be copied to a USB drive. Note that both the software and maps files can be on your USB drive at the same time. The display will select the proper file.
3. Save the file to a removable USB drive. FAT32 and exFAT® formats are supported.
4. Plug the USB drive into your vehicle's USB port.
5. Turn on the display. Press the Polaris logo at the top of the screen (On five-button displays, press the Apps button). Tap SETTINGS > GENERAL from the tabs on the left. Scroll down to UPDATE MAPS/TRAILS.
6. Select the file you want to install.
7. The display will reboot and install the updated maps. This process may take a while depending on the speed of your USB drive.
