Route planning can be done online on the RIDE COMMAND website and uploaded to the 2017-2019 or 2020+ 7" Touchscreen Display powered by RIDE COMMAND.
On models with the 4" Round Touchscreen Display, route planning can be done on the bike. For more information on route tracking and navigation, watch the display overview video.
Note: The 4.3" Touchscreen Display equipped on some 2019-2022 FTR models does not support route planning and navigation at this time.
To plan a route using RIDE COMMAND, begin by visiting the Indian Motorcycle RIDE COMMAND website on your computer. Log in to your account or create an account.
Select PLAN RIDE in the middle of the screen.
You can also navigate to RIDES/PLACES and select PLAN RIDE in the top right.
Choose a starting point for your ride by clicking anywhere on the map or by searching in the left side panel, as shown below.
When using the search panel to the left, be sure to click ADD once you have found your desired location. The location will not be automatically added to your route when using the search bar.
Continue to add your desired locations and destination to your route. You can reorder stops by dragging the three horizontal lines next to each point under the Plan a Ride section.
If you wish to delete a stop from your ride, hover over the point and click the trash can icon to delete.
Once satisfied with your route, name it and click SAVE. Adding a description to the ride is optional.

Depending on which vehicle you have, there are different ways to upload your routes to your vehicle's display.
