iii. NORMAL – It will return to the middle scale.
iv. FAR – It will return to the widest scale.

be enabled with a P&A accessory for MY17 vehicles.

Do you have to go to the dealer, or how do you DIY?

Download and DIY.

Software Downloads | Infotainment System | Harley-Davidson USA

It takes longer to download the file and copy it to your USB drive than it does to perform the upgrade.

I did software upgrade on my 15 RGS Boom. While riding my joystick controls froze, when I stopped the bike screen went blank (motor still running) voice on the GPS was still taking with no picture on screen.
I got the screen to return by pushing the engine info button on the right side handle bar.
After about an hour we stopped for gas and I powered down everything. When I re-started bike GPS seemed to be fine. I went to switch the screen to Compass and the Compass had no NESW direction on it just question marks??
About an hour later I tried again and it worked.
Is this upgrade buggy, any other reports?
