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.
Pros - Easy installation, great tech support, system works fine, tire pressure monitor's. Cons - works on a cellular system so it may take a moment to update, stop showing tire pressure for some unkown reason but fixed itself much later. The cons are things that I will be able to tolerate cause my main concern will be track & recovery of my bike if it is ever stolen. Being able to track where you have been and see the status of your bike is great.
It does what it's supposed to do. Am using basic Ride S model and GPS works like a charm. Installation wasn't hard, 2013 gsxr 750. Even showed my route home. Alerted me when I left that my bike was leaving. The app is excellent for the S model.
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.
Referring to the scorpio sr1100i, great security system with alot of features! Unfortunately the app falls short on many things. First of it takes 2-3 minutes to communicate with the system only to receive a message that it could not communicate. Its also crashes often at the worst times. Example, i received a tilt alarm 12 am, i try to disarm alarm through the app but it continues to crash 4 times consecutively. They need an update to the app! Despite the apps downfall, Scorpios customer service its AMAZING! Russ has been helping me get my system up and running, thank you very much Russ!
