Connecting Bluetooth® Devices to Model Year 2018 and Older RIDE COMMAND

You can connect a headset or mobile device to the five-button 7-inch RIDE COMMAND display on your model year 2018 and older Polaris Off-Road vehicle with Bluetooth®. Once your phone is connected, you will be able to play music via Bluetooth® through your vehicle. When both a headset and mobile device are connected, you can make and receive calls and text messages through the RIDE COMMAND display. 

Note: To make and receive phone calls, a headset MUST be paired to the vehicle. 

Headset Pairing
The RIDE COMMAND display can connect with Polaris approved Bluetooth® headsets to listen to music, take phone calls and communicate with other riders wearing headsets. 

Only SENA® headsets are officially supported by RIDE COMMAND. Other Bluetooth® headsets and speakers may work, but they have not been rested, therefore support can't be offered. For pairing information, refer to the manufacturer's instructions. 

To connect a Bluetooth® device to your display, follow these steps:

1. From the Device Manager menu, press "Add Device."

2. Turn your Bluetooth® device on and put it in phone pairing mode. 

3. When the device appears on the display, press the "+" icon on the screen. This should pair the display and device, and you will see the headset icon in the upper left-hand corner of the display screen. 

4. When you return to the Device Management menu, you can use the icon below the headset name to switch between the connected device and vehicle speakers (if available).

4. A list of nearby devices will appear on the screen. Select the "+" next to your phone.
