USB Drive

Before updating the display, always export your existing rides and waypoints to a secondary USB drive to avoid losing them. Do not save them to the same USB used for installing the software update. You must use an empty USB drive for all software and map updates.

To update the display software, complete the following steps:

On your Personal Computer

For optimal download speed and connection stability, it is recommended to have a wired internet connection to your personal computer while downloading updates to your USB flash drive.
  1. Go to ridecommand.polaris.com.

  2. Log in to your account, or create a new account.

  3. Click Garage on the menu bar and select Map & Software Updates from the menu.

  4. From the list of displays, click 7” Snow (7S) from the list.

  5. Follow the on-screen direction on how to download the latest software or map to a USB flash drive (8+ GB).

On your Snowmobile

The USB port is located in the storage compartment behind the display.
  1. Plug the USB drive into your vehicle's USB port and turn on the display.

  2. On the Ride Command display, press the Badge Panel button at the top of the screen, followed by All Settings.

  3. Select General from the tabs on the left, and scroll down to Update Software or Update Maps / Trails.

  4. Select the file you wish to load (the latest will be automatically displayed next to the newest version detected on the USB drive for software updates).

  5. The display will reboot and install the software or map updates.

  6. After your display has restarted and you’ve determined the update to be successful, power down your vehicle before disconnecting your USB flash drive from the vehicle.

  2. Remove and reconnect the USB flash drive securely.

  3. Ensure display files are not inside a folder on the flash drive.
