Adding a Vehicle in the RIDE COMMAND App
Before setting a geofence or speed limit, be sure your vehicle is entered in your RIDE COMMAND app. If your vehicle was previously entered, skip to the next section.

If your vehicle cannot be found by Bluetooth®, you can manually add the vehicle using the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
