    I would hope that it is walkie talkie type technology, and NOT be relying on cell service! A fair amount of sledding is done outside the confines of the cities. Is there such thing as poltalk.com?

    Gps is receive only. So somehow the coordinates of each sled must be transmitted to each other sled. This would not be far without cell towers. The Garmin Rhino did this by Gmrs. I doubt the signal would be reliable more than a km based on how my so called 65 km range Gmrs radios worked.

    As it was explained to me and shown any Polaris sled equipped with the 7S display can be added to your friends and it’s all GPS tracked. In the case of a group where there is riders without it they can download the Ride Command App and bd added that way, however those will need a satellite signal in order to be tracked and displayed. I will definitely be playing around with it in the fall . I’ve used the current Ride Command Apo and really liked its tracking ability and to be able to save tracks which we did on a tour of Lake Muskoka a few weeks ago.

    Nunz i have a question. I understand you can have up to 10 friends on your screen showing the location of each. This would be good for a ride in Cochrane,Quebec when your on the big fast trails. My question is how does say the lead sled connect to the others sleds? Does it connect through an app on everyones phone? Do the other sleds have to be Polaris with this same technology?

    I didn't read up on it. How does it work? FRS or some such?

    I don't think the radio range would be very far in hilly terrain. Unless each sled in the 5 mile chain is a repeater.

    Just guessing at what this "Friends" thing is, but I would think that pretty handy - mostly for those groups that don't ever look back and don't mind getting spread out from here to Tuesday. This was eye opening to me how some groups would ride the other day after we ended up taking the trail back out of Halfway, and we didn't hit speeds above 45 klicks for the most part as real long mountain sleds don't navigate the trails like the shorty's doo, so we got passed many times, and from the time that the guy running Point would pass, 'till the guy running Clean-Up finally came along - they may have been 5 miles apart! This happened more than once. I / we have NEVER ridden like that! If you don't see the guy behind you in a straight-away, you need to slow down or even stop until either you see him - or you decide he's not there, and you go back and fetch him. I guess with this gizmo - you know he's back there, that he is moving, and OK? I still don't like it, but .... .

    it was really cool to try, the friends feature worked really well in January when we rode them in Minnesota.

    Polaris ride command looks neat.

    I guess I don't recall for sure which of the trade journals it was, but it seemed that they were singin' quite the praises for the new Pol's. I'm guessin' that it was the RMK or SKS, or whatnot if I spent much time reading it (and it seemed to be over several models) but none-the-less, from that issue, and possibly some other mags as well, it seems that there is a glimmer of light in the tunnel for Polaris for the first time in quite a while.

    Nope... should have happened years ago. Hwy. 141 interchange is much safer way to access Port Sydney if southbound on Hwy. 11, and use Greer Rd. to get to Ultramar, Home Hardware, Rosseau Road store, etc.

    Thanks for the info Blake. I have personally seen many accidents at this crossing. Definetly will be an improvement for peoples safety.

    The deadly level crossing of Highway 11 at Smith's Ultramar has been barricaded by the MTO.

    Actually ford has been against carbon tax from day 1. Now he is saying we are going to manufacture more products in ontario, such as N96 masks (yes a step up from N95), face shields too, and bunch of other items that are in high demand at moment. It is a start in right direction no doubt and hopefully future holds more local manufacturing. My local supplier that I use all the time was able to supply with me 80 n95 masks a few weeks ago for our business. I always pay a tad more then buying online, but it is local people like him that can keep us farmers going during a crises like this.

    Canada produces enough milk for the country. We produce enough beef and pork to export where ever possible. Lots of corn, wheat, canola, oats, barley. Fruit and vegetables are a problem in the winter. Manufactured goods are a big problem since we have been forced to buy everything form abroad. However, that could/would change if the need was there. Price would be more expensive though.
