Updating Software and Maps on the 4.3" PIDD

To update your 4.3" Polaris Interactive Digital Display:

1. Go to the RIDE COMMAND website.

2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click UPDATE VEHICLE SOFTWARE. Map and software updates are completed with the same files.

4. Select first your hemisphere and then your region/country.

5. If this is the first time you're updating your display, select the second option: SOFTWARE/TRAILS BASE MAP. Be sure to connect your vehicle to a trickle charger if you are updating the base map, as it will take significantly longer to upload than the regular trail update. If you've updated your display before, select SOFTWARE MAP AND TRAILS.

6. Once downloaded, copy the files to a USB by opening your computer's Downloads folder and double clicking the zipped folder to extract all the files. 

Note: The USB drive must be 4GB or smaller and formatted to the FAT32 file system. If the display reads "Update file not found," your USB may be formatted incorrectly.

  • If you downloaded Trails Only, there will be three files to extract as shown below. 
  • If you downloaded Complete Map, there will be four files to extract. 
  • Only the update files should be copied to the USB, not the zipped folder.
  • For help formatting your USB, read Formatting a USB to FAT32 or exFAT®.

Extracted Files

7. Connect the USB to the USB connector on your vehicle. On side-by-side vehicles, the USB connector is located in your glovebox. On ATVs, the USB connector is located on the front side of the right handlebar controls.

13. Wait for the download process to complete. Update duration will vary. Do not turn off the key while the update is downloading. The Trails Only update will take approximately 10 minutes. The Complete Map update will take approximately 35 minutes.

14. The display will restart itself once the download is complete. Turn the key to the off position, and then you can remove the USB.

Trails expire 90 days from their release date. When trails expire, a red warning bar will alert the rider that the trails are expired. The trails will still be visible after pressing Key 3 to accept the warning. Trail data is updated daily on the RIDE COMMAND website and should be updated regularly on your display.
