Using Group Ride on Your 7S Display
Polaris Matryx platform snowmobiles equipped with a 7S display can use the Group Ride feature on Ride Command. Invite your friends to a group to see their live location on the map of your smartphone, tablet or in-vehicle Ride Command display.

The 7S display requires a GPS lock, indicated by a blue arrow marker (as shown below) before you are able to set up or join a group ride.

There are two ways to set up a group ride: mobile phone or vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) antenna.

Setting Up a Group Ride with a Phone
Group Ride with a mobile phone works within cellular range and requires a tethered mobile phone. There is infinite range between vehicles, and it works with friends using the mobile app.

mobile phone set up
To set up a group ride using a mobile phone, do the following:

1. From the map menu, tap the GROUP RIDE button.

2. Tap the SETUP MOBILE PHONE GROUP RIDE button on the display screen.

3. Complete all three steps on the screen, in the specified order, to set up a group ride.
  • Enable your Bluetooth® tethering in your phone's settings. Tap instruction for more information on how to enable tethering on an iPhone® or Android™ phone.
  • Connect your phone via Bluetooth®. If your phone is currently connected, you must disconnect and reconnect it.
  • Press the LOGIN button to log in to your Ride Command account. If you do not have a Ride Command account, sign up at RideCommand.polaris.com.
Once you've completed all three steps above, your information will be stored (unless cleared manually), and you will not need to log in to your Ride Command account again for future group rides.

4. Press the BACK button to go back to the Group Ride screen and join your group ride.

For vehicles with a V2V antenna and vehicles using a mobile phone-based group ride to join the same group, at least one member of the group must be connected to both the V2V antenna and the mobile phone-based group ride.

Setting Up a Group Ride with V2V
A vehicle-to-vehicle antenna (V2V) works anywhere, with no phone required. It requires an installed V2V antenna, which is standard on model year 2021 snowmobiles with a 7S display. It has a range of more than 1 mile between vehicles.
