5. If this is the first time you're updating your display, select the "Complete Map" option. If you've updated your display before, select "Software Map and Trails."

Maps download

6. Once downloaded, copy the files to a USB Drive by opening your computer's "Downloads" folder and double clicking the zipped folder to extract all the files.

  • If you downloaded "Trails Only" there will be three files to extract as shown below. 
  • If you downloaded "Complete Map" there will be four files to extract.
  • Your USB Drive must be a 4, 6, or 8 gigabyte USB Drive.
  • The USB Drive must be formatted to the FAT32 file system.
  • If the display reads "Update file not found," your USB Drive may be formatted incorrectly.
  • Only the update files should be copied to the USB Drive, not the zipped folder.

Extracted Files

7. Connect the USB Drive to the USB connector on your vehicle. On side-by-side vehicles, the USB connector is located in your glovebox. On ATVs, the USB connector is located on the front side of the right handlebar controls.

14. The display will restart itself once the download is complete. Turn the key to the off position, then you can remove the USB Drive.

Trails expire 90 days from their release date. When trails expire, a red warning bar will alert the rider that the trails are expired. The trails will still be visible after pressing Key 3 to accept the warning.
