Introducing Polaris Ride Command, the ultimate accessory for any powersports enthusiast, specifically created to elevate your Off-Road and Snowmobile experience.
Previously known as the ORV and Snow Trails apps by RiderX, Ride Command is designed to enhance your year round riding experience by providing over 300,000 miles of trail data. View ride areas, points of interest, and dealerships all on the map of your smartphone or tablet. Ride Command also provides downloadable maps for offline use and weather updates including snow and rain fall.
Experience group riding like never before with Ride Command’s Group Ride and Follow the Leader features. Invite a rider to your group to see their live location on the map of your smartphone, tablet or Ride Command in-vehicle display. Assign a rider in your group as your leader to follow their trail through any twists and turns you encounter.
Seamlessly pair to your in-vehicle Ride Command display via Bluetooth to wirelessly sync rides and waypoints to your vehicle. Stream music to your vehicle’s speakers, receive text and call notifications on your display, and keep track of other riders in your group, all from the driver’s seat of your RZR or General.

Desperately needs old issues fixed


App won’t rotate upside down: My phone is mounted upside down on the A-pillar so that that charge cable goes up, and into the Polaris wire management hole inside the top corner of the roll cage.

Missing many options in landscape: When using the app horizontally I am missing most of the options that are available in portrait. When my device is in its holder it’s a pain to pull over, take the device out of its mount turn it vertically just to perform some actions then mount it all back up horizontally again. Please fix this, it’s been happening for years now. Back when this app first came out this was not an issue.

Summary: I don’t understand the need to keep us in portrait mode or not allow the app to work upside down. Those are Silly things that are easy to fix and improve the user experience. I run a dedicated GPS along this app because it’s such a pain to use. All my buddies have Polaris and this app is such a pain that no one wants to use it even though the group ride is cool. I’m still hoping one day these long standing issues are fixed so we can enjoy the app again. Until then I recommend using a different GPS for your trail ride. “GPS Tracks” and “UTV Trails” are great alternatives.

Revised. Please update this app regularly!


This app hardly works at all on my iPad mini 2. However it worked fine on my iPhone 6s Plus and also my iPhone X. Now it won’t open. It stays a white screen although sometimes It just crashes on my iPad. Also the maps don’t have any trails marked on any of the major trail systems that I’ve ridden and used this app on. And when you turn the devise to landscape mode all of the function buttons disappear. How about 3D topo visual option as well so while driving the trails you know what type of terrain your on and what’s around you. Also realize if your using a device that is not connected to the network full time that you cannot use the new group ride feature. Useless app. Why is there NO support at all for this app. The riding year is upon us. Fix the app so it runs on the current iOS version devices. Fix landscape mode. If not. Just remove it from the App Store. It’s taking up space for apps that actually function. Now to find one that works. Or move on to a full fledged off road gps device. Not Ride Command!!!!

Good idea. But crashes on start up


May 2018 Update - Not good. This app has so much potential but it is too buggy to use reliably.
Installed on an ipad2 that was mounted in my turbo rzr. App would start and work great. Then it would randomly crash and shut itself down (the app). I could barely use it more than 15 minutes before a fatal crash.
Also some commands are missing in landscape mode, which is how my iPad is mounted. So you can be locked out during a ride. It’s not currently reliable enough to use.

Also randomly the trails would disappear and only reappear when you resize your iPad screen.

Very buggy. If they can get a handle on some of these serious problems, then this app will be unstoppable. But for now, I have to go with another app.

**UPDATE** Got it working again. Delete the app. Remove it from iTunes too. Reinstall. It should work. If not, try rebooting your phone after the reinstall.

I used this before in Moab and it was great. Got us through Hells Roaring Revenge no problem.

The problem is the updates. The latest update won’t even allow the app to open. Just the welcome screen and then an all white screen. Nothing.
Running on iPhone 6 with current iOS.

I still like the app. Just need to figure a way to get it working again.

I hope they fix it because I just bought a defender case for my iPad and ram mounts for my rzr turbo.
