Syncing RIDE COMMAND data allows information to be shared between the app and the display. For example, if you save waypoints to the RIDE COMMAND app, you can sync your data to transfer these waypoints to your vehicle's display. Syncing data is also a recommended step to take before updating the maps or software on your touchscreen display. Syncing ensures that your data, including tracked rides, routes, events, areas, collections, waypoints (saved locations) and vehicle data, has been backed up to a secondary location.
There are several ways to sync your RIDE COMMAND data. Read below to learn how to sync data for your vehicle.
Syncing Data with the RIDE COMMAND Display
To determine how to sync your data by using the RIDE COMMAND display, follow the directions for the model year that corresponds to your vehicle.
Model Year 2019 and Newer Off-Road Vehicles
For model year 2019 and newer Polaris Off-Road Vehicles, log in to your RIDE COMMAND account on the RIDE COMMAND display. Once logged in to the display, your data will sync automatically.
You can also export rides to a USB.

To save your RIDE COMMAND data on model year 2018 and older Polaris Off-Road Vehicles:
1. Download the RIDE COMMAND app and log in, if you have not done so already.
