The Maps and Navigation screen allows access to the many navigation features of RIDE COMMAND. From the Maps and Navigations screen, you can find directions, look up addresses, search for gas stations and pinpoint other points of interest. Once selected, the display will provide turn-by-turn directions to your destination.

You can not plan a route on the app or website and sync it to the display. You must enter a destination directly on the display for start-to-end navigation.
