Updating Maps and Software for Model Year 2020 and Newer Slingshot Ride Command

Updating Slingshot Maps
Have your Slingshot hooked up to a trickle charger before starting the maps update. Also disable Automatic Display Power Down. To do this, go to SETTINGS > VEHICLE > AUTOMATIC DISPLAY POWER DOWN.

1. Copy the map package from the Slingshot Ride Command website onto a USB flash drive. The USB must be 32 GB or larger and formatted to exFAT. 

2. Plug the flash drive into the USB port on the Slingshot. On most model year 2020 and newer models, the USB port is below the Ride Command display. On other models, it is in the glove box.

6. Tap on the map file that you'd like to update the display with. Wait for the update.

7. After the map has been updated, the Ride Command display will reboot and show the maps on the navigation screen. Make sure that the USB is not ejected before the map update has been completed and that the unit has rebooted on its own.

If for some reason the map update was not successful or completed, and the maps are displayed as blank, try updating the map package again.

On your computer:

1. Go to RideCommand.Slingshot.Polaris.com. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on UPDATE VEHICLE SOFTWARE.

On your Slingshot:

1. Plug the USB drive into your vehicle's USB port and turn on the display.

2. Press the Slingshot logo at the top of the screen and then press SETTINGS.

Before updating your Ride Command display, we recommend syncing your rides and places. To do this, either log in to your Ride Command account on your Ride Command display or pair your display with the Ride Command app. If you are unable to sync with Ride Command, we recommend saving your rides and places to a USB drive.
