    We're getting ready to go to Alaska in a couple of months and there is a lot of areas between here and there that don't have cell or internet.
    Seems when you don't have cell service the GPS sometimes doesn't work either.
    It's been awhile since I looked at the settings but I think on my Android there is an option under locations to use GPS only. Check that out.

    One of the things that we have been asking for .................... MPG on the fly is now a feature in BRP Connect, you can see how your mileage improves or decreases while you are riding depending on gear and speed. Cool.

    All I see when I switch to BRP Connect is music, Genius Maps and Accuweather. When I switch out of BRP Connect I get the main dash where I can see and switch to radio, set up the Bluetooth, check bike stats etc. is there a new app in BRP Connect that shows mileage and fuel consumption?

    also, all smartphones have three antennas, cell, WiFi and GPS. So as long as you have built in map data you can use GPS. Google maps and Waze require cell or WiFi.

    Bob, absolutely. I took it in to the shop today, they said there is a service bulletin for the software.
    They said they had to order some parts and could not upgrade it

    I was looking through the stuff in the plastic bag that came with the Spyder and I found a rebate of $90 if we buy the apps

    Found this. Its a 2018 owner that has some interesting info on how the dash works and a few tips about BRP Connect.

    I bug them weekly and if we all did it they would have to take notice and hopefully produce what we want. .

    I noticed yesterday that Rever and FOBO Bike was available on BRP connect. I already have FOBO Bike but when I clicked the app link in the list I was taken to the App Store to download FOBO Tire. Itís for cars and we donít have the added feature that the car unit does. But when I loaded it on the bike I had to have to phone close so when I selected the new apps I had to hit OK on the phone so it would work. Now when FOBO bike opens on the dash the correct app opens. Kind of confusing but in the long run it works. So when you click on the link download FoboTire and then when you plug it into the bike and select it you will get FOBO bike and then you can remove FOBO tire from the phone. Itís a bit confusing.
