  • Intuitive Destination Search: Improves the ability to search for destinations by providing more points of interest near the rider and gives address recommendations without the need to type the full address in the search box.
  • Over the Air (OTA) Updates: Allows riders to receive new software notices on the display and update with the simple touch of the screen.
  • Speed Limit Overlay: Gives riders the convenience of having visibility to the speed limit on the road that they are traveling right on the navigation screen during an active route.
  • Vehicle Locator: Provides riders with an added sense of security by being able to see the location of your bike the last time it was turned on right from the app or website.
  • Vehicle Health: Allows rider to view key vehicle health information from the Indian Motorcycle App or website like odometer, fuel level, fuel range and tire pressure.
  • Planned Ride Transfer from App/Web to Bike: Transfer planned rides and waypoints from the Indian Motorcycle App or website to the bike seamlessly without the use of a USB.
