The Ride ststem gives you a false sense of security. It doesn't update its position and its location is usually wrong. The cellular feature is now via AT&T. Vehicle tracking fails if there's no cellular signal. It causes many false alarms. Installation is a challenge. Overall, in spite of good customer service, using Ride is frustrating.
Don't waste your money. I was so excited to get the Ride system on my bike. For starters, the GPS doesn't work. I've ridden more than 1000 miles and the app thinks my bike has stayed in my parking spot. When trying to arm and disarm, the app takes about 5 minutes before telling you it couldn't contact the bike, and you have to "wake it manually". How do you wake it? Start the ignition so that it sends you all the alarms that your bike is being started. If by some work of God you do get it armed, it'll disarm itself by the end of the day. Would return it if I could. Customer service is very friendly though, so it's too bad they don't have a good system to back up.
When it works, it's fantastic! For me, it worked wonderfully for 2 weeks but then I had a few weeks with many missed trips and no alerts. It would correct. after a power cycle but only for 12 - 24 hours at most. Now it's working properly again. I still think it's worth the price and security though. I find miles are off most times as trip logging works on cell networks.
Switched from the old Ride system ( I had since they began selling em ) where I was getting all my notificatiions on my cell and now have the new Ride Core system I purchased 5/18 and had to send the GPS antenna back and now the system still isn't working right, waste of $$$
Best system I ever used.GPS works great.
For the money it should do more,can't work app with out going to motorcycle and it still will not take the command...
