Just a heads up for those that have been waiting, brp go is out.

As per the suggestion from someone in one of the sub forums, I had to download it through brp connect, but it’s there

Coverage area is also larger than originally posted by them. Not surprising, considering it’s about 7 months later haha

My dealer said that it isnt going to work in Ontario either.    I am glad I just went with the standard gauge and will continue to run my Garmin 680.

Not seeing NY either, and I am pretty NY was listed as one of the ones that would be supported at launch. 

 

Here's hoping for an update that will get some more areas covered by the app.

I also played around with it just now.  It certainly seem pretty simple.  I am just hoping I don't miss things such as layers, and choice of how to look at the map, be it satellite, view or map view, etc.   

 

I am going to reserve judgement until I have had a chance to ride with it.   I am hopeful that the amount of control that they have given is just enough to be useful, rather than not enough.

Was really hoping this would be well done. From what I’ve seen, the maps and navigation won’t be usable. Wisconsin data varies greatly county by county. Vilas and Oneida county look good. Forest and Langlade have so many missing trails it wouldn’t be usable. Looks like I’ll have to continue using the Polaris app unfortunately.

Patience.  It is not like they had since last March to get all the bugs worked out.   Oh wait... LOL.   

 

I am sure with time things will improve and fill in.   BRP has to rely on states/provinces to provide them info, so if the info the govt. authorities provide is incomplete, than the info the APP has would be as well.

I have the cel phone glove box extension that mounts my cellphone sideways, but the app won’t rotate to landscape mode until you start a ride. Seems like a bit of an oversight, hopefully that’s changed in a future update

Yup, not impressed so far.

 

Trails come to dead ends where I know they should keep going or are missing all together.

The Polaris app has gone through countless updates. I'm sure the Doo app will improve with time and be just as good if not better.
