The biggest feature of this RZR XP
1000 is its Ride Command system.
Polaris released their patented system
last year in 2016 to a thrilled audience.
The redesigned dash has a 7-inch
touchscreen display that can be
utilized while wearing gloves. It has
all the standard functions of a normal
gauge cluster while also including a
GPS, front and rear cameras, a sound
system, accessory key position and
The GPS system allows you to
record your trail rides, set waypoints
along the way and transfer the ride
data to a USB device. It allows you
to see trails that are around you and
will give you the longitude and latitude of your position, along with how
many miles you have driven, your
max speed, average speed and more.
You can select an option to have the
system show you true north or have
the arrow point the direction you are
traveling. The Ride Command system
also enables you to track your bud-
dies who also have the system in their
machines so you always know where
everyone in your group is. There is also
the ability to connect Sena headsets
via Bluetooth to talk to your friends in
The Ride Command system includes
a front and rear camera that will help
you load and unload your machine
onto your trailer. In some cases you
can use the cameras to view what
you cannot see while driving, but the
Polaris RZR seats are comfortable and hold you in place
pretty well. We would have preferred their harness system
instead of just automotive-style seat belts.
The dash of this RZR has been redesigned to incorporate the
7-inch touchscreen display of the Ride Command system. It
can be operated wearing gloves.
We hope that Polaris will eventually put half doors on
their sport performance lineup as a stock feature, but
until then, you can get door inserts to fill the gap.
