For 2020 and Newer RIDE COMMAND

For model year 2020 and newer Slingshot vehicles, you can sync a ride to your Slingshot with Bluetooth® tethering or an active RIDE COMMAND+ connected services subscription. If you have an active RIDE COMMAND+ connected services subscription, you can skip to step 5 because the modem will complete the sync automatically.

Always keep the software on your 2020+ 7" Display powered by RIDE COMMAND up to date for best results. Read Updating Slingshot Software and Maps on the 2020+ 7" Display Powered by RIDE COMMAND for update instructions.
