    It is a hard job .......................... But somebody has to do it. LOL Talk to your local dealer an offer to be an Ambassador for them.

    NO, i do not need an assistant.

    Hope you got the software update as I've found a few glitches that need fixing. My dealer couldn't do it right away and I was in Tuesday and they told me that have the tools but need to figure out how to do it. I've told them I want to bring it in next week to get it done. Also would love to be able to access my phone favorites instead of the address book. Takes forever to get to the name I want to call.

    You have to connect via bluetooth AND cable. With main radio visible, punch the joystick and then navigate to settings then bluetooth then add phone. Same thing with headset.

    It took me a few times to figure it out. The tutorial videos are crap at basic setup. Then you have to open BRP Connect before you plug in. It has to be the app visible or it will try to connect and will ask if you want to allow the bike to connect but then you're sitting on the bike and don't know its asking for a response. Then there is listening to music and when the Genius Maps tells you a direction the music stops and you can't get it going again. I believe the update will fix this but not sure.

    Joe,
    Why, you lucky ole DAWG!!

    I got my phone to link up to mine this morning...
    Initial feelings:
    The new foam grips are comfy
    he new dash is PLENTY visible!
    The smoked headlight and foglight covers are AWESOME!
    The rear storge compartment still has a 12 volt power port in it.
    The USB plug is up in the frunk
    The Parking brake switch has been moved...
    ...as has the mode switch
    And the Set switch has gone!
    (You just push in on the end of the joystick!
    The rear air suspension is now completely self-adjusting: no more buttons for it!

    And to prove that the bike is attractive with even an ugly guy sitting on it:

    When I got my first Spyder I made a rule for me. NO phone usage while on the Spyder. It was worked out well for me as there can enough distractions.

    I got the feeling that you are actually paying Bradford money for the job of being an ambassador. But I am sure whatever the price, it's cheaper than some new granite counter tops

    Cavman, That's great! Though my phone mount over my dash also serves as my GPS, and I've driven 20,000 accident free miles with that, in and out of group rides, traffic jams, etc and it works fine. for whatever reason, some folks don't know they can ignore their cell phone even while using for getting directions..... really,...

    Now that you are the 2018 Ambassador please keep us all tuned in on what makes the 2018 tick. Mine was due in to my dealer in January, but somehow my unit got caught up in a backlog????? Now due in within the next 2 weeks. can't ride it here with our weather, but still will look nice sitting in my garage.

    I am learning the new BRP Connect system and when it works ................ it is sweet .................... but it still has some glitches.

    You can now check your fuel consumption (MPGs) on the dash while you are riding

    So the first thing to learn is how to reset that quickly, but as nonchalantly as possible - ideally in less than the time it takes a cop to get out of his car:-)
