Can put the MN trails on one for free though from the DNR website. WI you have to buy unless someone has a new source.

Iíve never tried that, but downloaded the file a couple weeks ago and am going to try it.

F7Rat: No. Ride Command app only works with Polaris Ride Command GPS.

The app is sure nice, we use it to record rides on our General. At least for ATVís, that GPS has added to our ability to find places to ride - it was a good investment.

I loaded VV Maps on a Garmin and use it summer and winter. Turn by turn directions to your destination. The Polaris app only tells you where you've been.

You can go the other way. Load routes from Basecamp to Ride Command and then download from Ride Command to your PIDD but turn by turn will not work on Ride Command. It will just be a highlighted route/tracks. See full details on how to do it here: https://www.hardcoresledder.com/foru...aris-pidd.html

Updated instructions attached. Did everything yesterday. Polaris changed Ride Command just a little. You can upload Routes now, see each section and edit them but they really don't have the trail coverage yet so when you save and try to download a route, it comes as a blank file. You still need to only load tracks to Ride Command and then can successfully download from there where they can be successfully loaded to the PIDD. Follow the instructions exactly. They have download options in different screens and some don't work at all. I detailed the one that works. Still going to run my Garmin Montana 610 GPS for this year. Polaris just doesn't have the PIDD perfected if you want anything more than a track.

I just hope that people using turn by turn gps realize that our trails change EVERY year. We have a bunch of changes this year because of standing corn And Butterfly habitat. Be safe out there.
