The new mobile application allows one to wirelessly transfer directions to the bike’s navigation system and more.
Indian Motorcycle has released a new mobile phone application called Ride Command. This new application, combined with a firmware update to the motorcycle’s infotainment system adds some new features to your riding experience.
Indian has said that the latest update allows users to plan ride routes with up to 100 waypoints and then transfer the directions to the motorcycle’s navigation system, wirelessly. The mobile application also shows data like the bike’s fuel level, oil life, tyre pressure, service recommendations and more. The application is available on the Apple Store and on Google Play.
To use the app, Indian Motorcycle owners will have to update their on-board Ride Command infotainment system, either by visiting an authorised dealership or by downloading the update directly from the company’s website. Riders can also download the 2018 map updates free of cost via the same means. New Chieftain and Roadmaster owners are given three years of free map updates.
The system is compatible with all Indian Motorcycle models that are already equipped with the Ride Command touchscreen interface. Unfortunately, this means that lower models like the Scout will not be compatible with the app.
The most recent launch from Indian Motorcycle in India is the limited-edition Chieftain Elite.
