RIDE COMMAND+ Features: Location and Bump Alerts

With Location Alerts and Bump Alerts, you can receive a push notification and/or an email notification when the RIDE COMMAND+ Plug-In detects that your vehicle has been bumped or moved approximately 150 meters away from its last location (engine on or off).

To receive a Bump Alert, you must have Location Alerts enabled, but you do not need to have Bump Alerts to receive Location Alerts. If Bump Alerts are enabled, turning on Location Alerts from the display or app will also turn on Bump Alerts. You can activate Location Alerts on the display powered by RIDE COMMAND (if equipped) or the Polaris App (from the App Store® or from the Google Play® store).

Your vehicle does not have to be equipped with a display powered by RIDE COMMAND to use Location Alerts, but your RIDE COMMAND+ Plug-In must be activated. To learn more about RIDE COMMAND+, read RIDE COMMAND+ for Off-Road Vehicles

3. Tap ALERTS OFF to turn the alerts on. If you have not already set up a PIN, you may be prompted to do so. When Location Alerts are on, the button turns partially green.

If the Location Alerts toggle on the Polaris App or the ALERTS button on the display are yellow, the Location Alerts are in a pending status. To resolve this, turn the vehicle off and allow the Plug-In to power off completely, approximately 2 minutes, and then turn the vehicle on and allow the Plug-In to power on. Once the icons are green, Location Alerts are on and working properly.

Manage Location and Bump Alert Settings
If Location or Bump Alerts aren’t working as you expect or if you want to customize which alerts you get, navigate to the settings. Note: Location Alerts must be enabled to receive Bump Alerts, but you can disable either Bump Alerts or both Bump and Location Alerts.

1. Open the Polaris App.

2. Navigate to your Garage by tapping MORE, then GARAGE.

3. Give the page a moment to load, and select VEHICLE SETTINGS from the list. 

4. You may need to log in to your Polaris account again for security. 

5. Scroll through the vehicle settings to find the Location & Bump Security toggle and the SEND BUMP ALERTS checkbox. 

6. Customize which alerts you want to receive.

Receiving an Alert
Once Location Alerts have been turned on, you will receive notifications when your vehicle has been bumped or moved more than approximately 150 meters away from its original location. You will also see a map of the vehicle’s current location. Note: Bump alerts can only be triggered when the vehicle is off.

If you are already in the Polaris App, you will see a red banner across the top of the screen that notifies you that your vehicle has been moved. Tap the banner to open the map page with the vehicle’s location.
