Using Group Ride on Ride Command

Group Ride is a feature of Ride Command that lets users view the live location of other riders in their group.

There are three ways to use Group Ride: vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) antennas, Bluetooth® tethering via your phone and the Ride Command app.

V2V
V2V comes installed on model year 2020 off road vehicles equipped with Ride Command. V2V will be available as an accessory kit on model year 2019 vehicles equipped with Ride Command. V2V is not compatible with previous year models. After installing a V2V kit, users must update the software on their Ride Command display and then set up Group Ride.

Cell coverage is not required for V2V, and the range is 1-plus miles depending on terrain. 

The V2V kit for RANGER is part number 2884004. More information can be found in the installation instructions.

The V2V kit for RZR and GENERAL is part number 2884449. More information can be found in the installation instructions.

Bluetooth® Tethering
Bluetooth® tethering, available on model year 2019 and 2020 vehicles, uses your phone’s personal hotspot to connect to Group Ride. Cell coverage is required for tethering. Please check with your carrier to confirm your phone’s tethering capabilities. There is an unlimited range as long as you have cell coverage.

To tether your iPhone®:

1. Ensure that your phone has a personal hotspot plan available for use.

2. Turn on your personal hotspot.

3. Connect your phone to your Ride Command display.

4. Confirm that the status bar on the top of your phone screen is blue to signify an active tether connection.

To tether your Android phone:

1. Ensure that your phone has a personal hotspot plan available for use.

2. Turn on your Bluetooth® tether in your phone’s settings.

3. Connect your phone to your Ride Command display.

4. Confirm that the notification bar shows an active Bluetooth® tether session.

Ride Command App
Group Ride is available on the Ride Command app even if your vehicle is not equipped with a Ride Command display. 

Cell coverage is required, and there is an unlimited range as long as you have cell coverage.

To create a Group Ride on the Ride Command app, select the GROUP RIDE icon from the tool bar. Enable your Group Ride to ON and select CREATE A GROUP.

You will then name your group. You also can require a four-digit code be entered by users who want to join your group. This code cannot be changed once it is entered.

The Ride Command app is available for iPhone® and iPad® and on Google Play®.
