What am I doing wrong?

I recently purchased a new 2021 RT Limited.

I followed all the instruction to try to get BRP connect to work but I cannot get any maps etc to show on the Spyder display.

Here’s what I did:
1. Downloaded BRP Go from App Store.

2. Installed a number of compatible apps using BRP Go, such as Genius Maps and AccuWeather.

3. Connected my iPhone 12 iOS v15 to Spyder using Bluetooth.

4. Unlocked phone and started BRO Go on phone.

5. Plugged phone into USB on Spyder using OEM cable.

6. The phone’s screen showed “Connection Successful” and to leave the phone unlocked and connected.

7. I pressed the Phone button on the left handlebar. Several apps appeared on the Spyder screen including Genious and AccuWeather.

8. I select one of the apps using the joystick button and immediately my phone launches the selected app. (Was that supposed to happen?)

9. However, on the Spyder screen it shows “Loading”, after 10-15 seconds followed by “Please check your phone”. My phone still shows the app I selected has started up fine.

10. I select the green arrow next to “Please check your phone” using joystick. I then get the message “Application not Available”

I have technology skills and I’ve tried everything to try to get this to work.

Can anyone help?

The new "electronic dashboards" are a HUGE PAIN in the backside......as you are finding out.
You need to visit your dealer and get them to help......if they can.
Many owners don't use it at all......which is really sad.
The old system worked beautifully.

2020 RTL...same issues, I've finally managed to get it to work with Accuweather and REVER...I open REVER on phone, select a ride I've planned, select "Ride It" then without closing the app, I connect the phone to the USB, open BRP GO on phone, and usually it will say Connection Successful after the hourglass disappears. I also have the phone paired to the machine via Bluetooth beforehand. If you turn off the machine, you have to repeat the process from the open BRP GO stel. With REVER, I request Turn by Turn directions only, and usually they will come up, but it won't show the track...it's frustrating.
