This navigation app allows you to plan your trips on official snowmobile trails, ride with turn-by-turn indications, track your friends' position on the map, and more.

The following languages are supported by BRP GO!: English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, German, Russian, Italian, Japanese and Chinese.

BRP GO!'s language automatically follows the default language of the smartphone. It is not possible to change the language of the app manually within the BRP GO! app, only from the language menu of the smartphone’s operating system.

BRP GO! is a mobile app with navigation features while BRP Connect is a technology that allows some mobile apps to be used on the vehicle display. BRP Connect technology is integrated into the BRP GO! app and some models of Lynx displays.

 

 

Yes. You can use BRP GO! navigation features on the 7.8" wide LCD display and the 10.25" touchscreen display as found on select Lynx models. These gauges support app mirroring through the BRP Connect technology. Your phone and USB cable are required for this setup.

See the section on BRP Connect in this FAQ page for more info on compatible vehicles, setup and more.

 

 

Not to worry, we are also making a new accessory available – the Glovebox Extension with Mobile Phone Heated Pocket; so that you can still use the app and all of its functionalities on your Lynx model in a safe manner while riding.

 

 

Yes, they can mount their phone on their vehicle to use the app and all its features.

 

 

It is not necessary to create an account to use the BRP GO! app. However, some features of the app (such as saving a ride and adding friends) require you to be logged in with an account for them to work. For the best experience, we therefore recommend that you create or log into your account.

 

Some web browsers (such as MI and DuckDuckGo) are not compatible with the BRP login and account creation tool, which makes it impossible to open the login page when a phone has one of these browsers by default. The solution is to change the default browser of the device to use another browser (for example: Chrome, Safari or Firefox).

To change the default browser on your Android device:
1. Go to the phone Settings
2. Go to Apps
3. Go to Manage Apps
4. Tap on “...” (upper right)
5. Go to Default Apps
6. Go to Browser
7. Select “Chrome” (or any other browser)

To change the default browser on your iOS device:
1. Go to phone Settings
2. Scroll down until you find the browser app
3. Tap the app
4. Tap "Default Browser App"
5. Select a web browser to set it as the default.

 

BRP GO! is now offering custom content for three playgrounds: Snow, Water and On-Road. We are constantly adding new features and are looking to extend the coverage of this app to as many product lines as possible.

 

 

The version of the BRP GO! app installed on your device can easily be found within the Settings menu (upper right button from the home screen). The app version is located at the bottom (e.g. v2.0.0 (1671000)).

Colors on snowmobile trails represent the trail status. Here's what each color means:

- Green: The trail is available (open).
- Yellow dotted: The trail has limited availability (open, but not optimal). Snowmobilers enter with the understanding that they should exercise extreme care and reduce speed.
- Red dotted: The trail is unavailable (closed).
- Blue: The trail status is unknown. Depending on trail conditions, the trail could be open or closed, but we don't know the official status.

Trail status is defined by the snowmobile club or association in the region concerned. For the moment, the visibility of trail status is only available in some regions.

 

It is required by the OFSC to display a legal message in BRP GO! whenever a user opens the app while in Ontario or a user creates a route that uses an Ontario trail. The message is displayed every 24 hours and must be accepted to continue using the app.

It is also possible to receive messages from the OFSC when you no longer have a cellular or wi-fi connection, or when an emergency arises in this area. These messages are specific to Ontario only.

It is not possible to deactivate these messages.

 

 

When the snowmobile season is over (usually in April/May), all snowmobile trails are removed from the map for safety reasons and to preserve the quality of the trails. The trails will be displayed again at the start of the next snowmobile season (usually in December).

 

 

Yes, it is possible to use the BRP GO! Navigation map in Dark mode, in addition to Light mode.

To change the map display mode on your phone:
Change the display mode from your phone's Settings (Display & Brightness).

To change the map display mode on your vehicle's gauge:
- On the 7.8" display: Go to Menu > Settings > Display > Mode
- On the 10.25" display: Go to Quick Preferences (icon is located in the status bar) > select "Dark" or "Bright"

 

Once your itinerary has been saved and before you head out, download your ride from your phone. This way, you can ride offline without problems with the map details and points of interest. However, if you are doing a group ride, it won't be possible to track your friends' location on the map when you have no network. This feature requires a network connection for you and your friends.

Holding down the center button of the joystick will show the BRP Connect home screen where another app can be selected.

 

The BRP Connect app has been removed from Apple Store and Google Play Store since the integration of BRP Connect technology into BRP GO!, but you may still have the BRP Connect app on your phone if you never deleted it.

In this case, the BRP Connect app still works on vehicles. However, it will not be possible for you to use the BRP GO! Navigation features from the BRP Connect app. Also, this app is also no longer updated, so it may contain issues that have been fixed in the BRP GO! app.

We strongly suggest removing the BRP Connect app and only using the BRP GO! app. BRP GO! offers the most up-to-date experience.
