Default IDD Gauge Does Your Sled Change Oil?

I was reading IDD thread in the stickies and thought I would share this with the general board.

If your IDD says change oil it thinks it is a four-wheeler. Why this is a big deal is when you download trail maps the IDD will only download four-wheeler trails.

What I read was there were a lot of four-wheelers getting tickets because they were running snowmobile only tracks. But they showed as ridable trails on the IDD.

So Polaris made it so the IDD has to be set as a sled or four-wheeler for downloading maps. And you get one or the other.

So if your IDD says to change the oil you need to bring it to your dealer so that the IDD is set correctly for a seld. Otherwise, you miss trails on the GPS.

Mine gave the oil change warning when it was new and all the trails are there for me
It knows itís talking to a sled Ecu anyway, thatís why it turns off the 4wd indicator when you start it the first time after an update

I read an article back in 2016 before I ordered the IDD for a 2017 and it was a problem, they must have fixed. It was RV's getting tickets on snowmobile trails.
