Q: How can I see previous waypoints and add new ones?
A: To add a waypoint, you will select the “Navigation” button on the display. From there you will select the “Navigation Menu” on the screen. This will pull up the options to see the legend for the trails displaying on the map, see previous waypoints, add waypoints, see previous rides, record rides, and add a group ride features. To add a waypoint, select “Add Waypoint” on the screen. To edit the waypoint, select the pencil icon, and you can change the name of the waypoint. You also can change the color of the waypoint by selecting the waypoint icon directly to the left of where you just entered text to name your waypoint. Tap the waypoint to see the different colors you can choose. Once you have your waypoint named and color chosen, select the confirm button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. The waypoint will drop on the map, and if you select the waypoint dropped, the menu options will appear as they did when you first added the waypoint. If you select the button on the bottom left of the waypoint menu, this will enable you to navigate to the waypoint selected. However, you will not get turn-by-turn directions on how to get to that waypoint, but it will tell you the general direction to travel.

This will vary based on which SENA® headset you have. You want to get to “Configuration” on your headset. Your headset should tell you that you are in “Phone Pairing Mode.” “Phone Pairing Mode” is what mode you need the headset in to connect to Ride Command. You will then select “OK” on the display.

Q: When will trail data be available for Canada?
A: Ride Command only will show vetted and official trails. This means Ride Command relies on relationships with associations and clubs to build out our trail network of legal places to ride. We currently are working on building our relationships in Canada and hope to have more trail coverage soon. At this time, we cannot provide a date on when trail coverage will be available.
Q: How do I update my Ride Command display?
A: You will update your display by going to the Ride Command website. Visit the update section of the website. Unlike the PIDD, Ride Command will have a trails update and a software update separately (They are not merged into one like the PIDD was). You will have to download the selected files to a USB drive, plug the USB drive into the USB outlet connected to the display and follow the Ride Command update procedure that will appear on your display. The steps for this process are also listed under the software and map updates on the website. It is recommended that you update the Ride Command software and maps every 90 days. It is recommended that the base map is updated once a year.
Q: What speakers work with the Ride Command display?
A: MB Quart® and Rockford Fosgate® both make speakers that interface with Ride Command. See your Polaris Dealer for more information or to determine fitment.
Q: Can I plan a ride on the Ride Command website and upload the planned route to my display?
A: A ride can be planned on the Ride Command website, downloaded to a USB drive and then uploaded to your vehicle's display. More information can be found in Planning and Uploading a Ride for Your Ride Command Display.
