I have done the research but can not figure out how this is done. I don’t want to debate the merits of why you would or would not use this feature. I am using an IPhone XR and am able to see the texts that come in displayed on my Ride Command but can not figure out how to send one of the canned responses. For the record I was trying to figure this out while sitting in my garage. Anybody know how this is done?

I could never get mine to load on the display! I just gave up because it wasn’t that important. But I am curious to know as well.

I have tried as well (2018 Chieftain ). In natural running and with engine off but power on and still won’t send. I contacted Indian Corp and had a ticket started, sent in log file that they ask for, that was almost 9 months ago - nothing!!!!

I’m using iPhone. Did you check to be sure the txt was received?

Yes received and responded to. Will not work while riding.
I’ve tried it sitting still on neutral, but with IPhone it simply will not work!!!!

doesn't work with Apple products. Proprietary messaging needs licensing. That's why no CarPlay either. You can read the first line, but not respond. Its a PIA when riding and there is a family 4 ways back and forth. You can disable it.

Well why dint they say so when I submitted a ticket to have them address the issue?!! I even sent a log file at their request!! I can read the lines, which is good, at least I know there is a txt. Ive told family if there is a emergency just state it in a short txt. But, Indian should fix this after all the largest cell phone base is IPhone!!

Hell, that's one of the reasons WHY I go riding...to get away from all the family and/or work drama!

Car play and Android auto will most likely be out this year possibly in the fall. Was supposed to come out in March but was delayed to Covid.

Don't y'all know it's against the law to text while driving/riding. My guess is the feature is cut off while riding. But, what do I know, I ride a Classic.

Is this for sure that it won’t work on Apple products? It does seem strange that they started a ticket for Texas Steve. You would think the first question would be, “What kind of phone are you using?”, if it is not expected to work on Apple.

Not strange at all, Indian has zero technical clue on the ride command system as it was developed by a software company in Poland. They still put tickets in for people who can't update maps and software, even though years ago smart people determined it was a USB and formatting issue with the USB drive.

@Baron58 is this for RC 2.0 only or are older ones getting it also?
Only 2.0 There was a rumor here on the forum that the late model 2019 models would have a hardware upgrade. But I seriously doubt that. More of a dealer misunderstand as that’s where the rumor came from
