    Flags
    Create flags to mark items in the fieldCreate flags to mark items in the field

    Mark areas of the field that need special attention or items that need to be addressed such as rocks, tile lines, or weed pressure. Flags previously recorded on the Gen 4 or GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display can be transferred between displays to ensure each operator is aware of upcoming field obstacles. 

    Document field boundaries

    Manually drive field boundaries with the Generation 4 CommandCenter or import existing boundary information from the GS3 2630 Display or John Deere Operations Center. Gen 4 documentation data can be used to create boundaries from coverage within the John Deere Operations Center.

    The display uses a streamlined boundary creation process that generates exterior and interior field boundaries from coverage, simplifying the process and reducing steps. Operators can delete interior boundaries without impacting the exterior boundary or headlands. In addition, operators can chose to turn boundaries off for section control while using them for field locator and documentation.

    Headland boundaries can also quickly be generated by simply entering a distance or the number of passes from an exterior boundary.

  • Wirelessly transfer data

    John Deere Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) helps producers save time, money, and increase productivity through telematics-enabled data transfer via JDLink™ Connect wireless telematics. Wirelessly transfer setup, prescription, and documentation files securely between office, mobile devices, and 4640/4240 Universal Display or 4600/4200 CommandCenter™ Display, eliminating the need for USB transfer. This increases producer uptime and productivity, reducing the risk of data loss, and enabling easy data sharing and more timely decision making.

    Through the John Deere Operations Center, producers are in control and can easily share files with a John Deere dealer and other trusted advisers.

    Wireless Data Transfer

    With WDT, producers can manually send data wirelessly to the John Deere Operations Center; data is available to review in Files and then later in Field Analyzer and the MyOperations™ mobile app. To enable WDT on a Gen 4 Display, producers must manually navigate to the Menu, System, File Manager, Export and then begin selecting the data they want to send to the John Deere Operations Center.

    NOTE: WDT on a Gen 4 Display does not include any auto send triggers similar to the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display which automatically sent data after a change in client, farm or field.

    Set-up files and prescriptions can be transferred wirelessly from the Operations Center to the 4600/4200 CommandCenter or 4640/4240 Universal Display anytime, eliminating trips to the machines’ locations and allowing for more timely completion of field operations. Modified setup files and prescriptions will not overwrite files currently on the Gen 4 Display; only new or modified information will be imported from the setup file.

  • The Generation 4 CommandCenter™ and Gen 4 Universal Displays display are an AEF ISOBUS compatible display.

    An easy plug and play between implements, displays, tractors, and other products is required today in daily business. This is why within agriculture and forestry, an industry standard, ISOBUS, is used for communication between these products.

    #

    From the ag industry, the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) was initiated in 2008 to have a common forum among manufacturers to define the ISOBUS standard further, define and conduct ISOBUS tests, accelerate adoption, label compatible products, and to communicate this to dealers and customers. John Deere is one of the seven founding members of AEF and is very engaged in the organization.

    To better ensure ISOBUS compatibility, the AEF developed new functionalities, i.e., auxiliaries (AUX) and Task Controller Section Control (TC-SC,) in addition to the well-known universal terminal (UT). They are also the basis for the certification of ISOBUS products. An ISOBUS functionality can be described as an independent ISOBUS product and the concept is extendable for later additions of functionalities.

    Gen 4 CommandCenter and Gen 4 Universal Displays support the following ISOBUS features:

    • 4600/4200 CommandCenter and 4640/4240 Universal Display:
      • Universal Terminal (UT)
        -> ISOBUS sprayer, seeder, planter, fertilizer spreader, manure applicator, and many other implements can be operated through the UT functionality.
      • Task Controller Section Control (TC-SC)
        -> With TC-SC, ISOBUS compliant implements like sprayers, seeders, planters, fertilizer spreaders, and manure tankers can be used with automatic Section Control.
      • Task Controller Basic (TC-Bas)
        -> With TC-Bas, documentation with ISOBUS compliant implements in the standard data format of ISOXML is possible. Also, totals like area, amount, etc. are recorded directly from the implement.
      • Task Controller geo-based (TC-Geo)
        -> With TC-Geo, location-based documentation with ISOBUS compliant implements in the standard data format of ISOXML is possible. Also, Client, Farm, Field, Boundary, Products, Crops (incl. Varieties), Prescriptions, Operators, Tasks, Comments are recorded directly from the implement.
      • Auxiliary Control (AUX-N)
        -> With AUX-N, additional control elements that facilitate the operation of complex equipment, such as a joystick; also, the capability of controlling implement functions by means of an additional control element.

  • Sometimes a job on the farm does not require intense Precision Ag management practices. When this is the case, the 4200 CommandCenter™ is just the tool for the job. The 4200 offers the ability to run core Precision Ag features like AutoTrac™ guidance, Documentation, Section Control, and Data Sync.

    There are two levels of activations that can be ordered on the 4200. The first is the CommandCenter AutoTrac Activation, enabling operators to consistently drive the same guidance path pass to pass. The second is the 4200 Section Control and Data Sync Activation plus CommandCenter AutoTrac Activation. This combines the ability to use AutoTrac on a machine with the value of Section Control, eliminating overlap on critical field operations, and provides the use of Data Sync. Data Sync enables operators to automatically send data to John Deere Operations Center. Producers can analyze the data from completed fields or view where field work is in process, making it easier for them to make operational decisions. Data is available to analyze through the John Deere Operations Center from any internet-connected device, allowing producers to make important production decisions and giving operations the ability to invoice work recently completed.

    Requirements for Data Sync 

    1. An active JDLink™ Connect subscription on a Modular Telematics Gateway (MTG)
    2. 4200 Section Control and Data Sync Activation plus CommandCenter AutoTrac Activation.
    3. Organization set up in the John Deere Operations Center

    StarFire Receivers

    StarFire Receivers can be updated in the following ways:

    • Receiver USB port (available only for StarFire 6000 Receivers)
    • Gen 4 display USB port
    • Remote software updates application (in ISOBUS VT app)

    Additionally, StarFire iTC Receivers are no longer supported with software update 2017-1 and newer software. StarFire 6000 Receivers require software version 3.80F or higher when used with AutoTrac Implement Guidance.

    John Deere Operations Center

    Gen 4 data is only compatible with the John Deere Operations Center.

    Activations/subscriptions required for Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) and Data Sync:

    • A 4600 CommandCenter Premium activation, 4200 CommandCenter Section Control and Data Sync activation, a 4640 Premium subscription, or 4240 Section Control and Data Sync
    • JDLink™ Ultimate + WDT + Remote Display Access (RDA) or JDLink Connect subscription

    To use RDA on a Gen 4 CommandCenter Display with a GS3 2630 Display connected in the same machine, GS3 2630 software version 3.22.1095 (SU2014-1) or higher is required (for 4600 CommandCenter Display and 4640 Universal Display only).

    GreenStar Rate Controller and GreenStar Rate Controller Dry

    GreenStar Rate Controller Dry is supported with display software update 2017-2 and newer. The 4600 and 4200 CommandCenter Displays and 4640 and 4240 Universal Displays support documentation and section control of up to five GreenStar Rate Controller units.

    To update the GreenStar Rate Controller and GreenStar Rate Controller Dry, utilize a Gen 4 Display USB port. John Deere dealers can also utilize Service ADVISOR™. GDC 2.11A was the last software version available through Software Manager. GDC 2.20A has been available since spring 2015 and contains diagnostic language updates. This software can only be obtained through Service ADVISOR.

    John Deere Rate Controller 2000

    The Gen 4 Displays and John Deere Rate Controller 2000 can support documentation and control up to five operations. ISO controllers such as SeedStar on John Deere planters can be used with a John Deere Rate Controller 2000 that is documenting additional operations. Additionally, Gen 4 Displays can document shared sections with a John Deere Rate Controller 2000. An example of this would be John Deere Rate Controller 2000 used with a Raven Sidekick™ ICD direct injection pump.

    For more information on Gen 4 displays and John Deere Rate Controller 2000 compatibility, please visit the John Deere Ag Sales Manual.

    AutoTrac™ Vision

    AutoTrac Vision Guidance Camera 19-1 software 4.01L is only compatible with RowGuidance 3 Controller software AKK15783F and GreenStar 3 2630 17-1 software 3.34.1345 or newer and Generation 4 18-1 software 10.10.404-345 or newer. 

    AutoTrac Universal 200, AutoTrac Universal 300, and AutoTrac Controller

    AutoTrac Universal 200, AutoTrac Universal 300, and AutoTrac Controllers are for use with the 4640 Universal Display and 4240 Universal Display. Please see the AutoTrac Universal 200, AutoTrac Universal 300, or AutoTrac Controller Sales Manual for exact model compatibility.

    ISOBUS implements

    Gen 4 Displays are compatible with one Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) certified ISOBUS implement; AEF-certified ISOBUS implements with Task Controller Section Control (TC-SC) functionality and AEF certification for TC-SC include sprayers, fertilizer spreaders, planters, seeders, manure applicators, etc. For third-party FMIS compatibility, reference the John Deere Operations Center.

    A software update performed by an authorized ISOBUS implement dealer may be required to obtain compatible software. ISOBUS implements must be certified through the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) to be recognized by the Gen 4 CommandCenter display. Visit www.aef-online.org for more information; visit www.aef-isobus-database.org for an active list of compatible implements.

    ISOBUS implements with VT4 are now supported by Gen 4 Displays. Gen 4 Displays still support older VT versions (example: VT2 and VT3). If an implement is not loading after updating to Gen 4 software update 2017-2 (or newer on 4600 CommandCenter v2 processors), it is recommended that the implement manufacturer be contacted to get a software version that is either VT3 or VT4.

    Extended monitor

    When using an extended monitor with equipment visualized in ISOBUS VT Viewer and applying VT run page modules to two run pages shown at the same time, the extended monitor’s VT modules will not update. To mitigate this, only view VT modules on one run page at a time.

    Connect Mobile

    For complete Connect Mobile compatibility, please reference Connect Mobile configurations.

    Implements without controllers

    Implements without controllers can be documented as a stand-alone operation or with a rate controller from John Deere. Additionally, multiple implements without controllers cannot be documented together.

    NOTE: Competitive equipment may be compatible with 4640 Universal Display and 4240 Universal Display. For additional compatibility information, see AutoTrac Universal 200, AutoTrac Universal 300, or AutoTrac Controller in the Ag Sales Manual.

  • Over-the-air activations were enabled with the 18-1 software update to the Gen 4 displays. With that software update or newer, a John Deere dealer can send activations to a Gen 4 display without leaving the office. Over-the-air activations also eliminate the need to manually enter long activation codes like was done previously. This also eliminates multiple trips between the cab and the farm office to enter codes and verify completion.

    NOTE: Over-the-air activations requires a current JDLink™ Connect subscription and Mobile Telematics Gateway (MTG). Planter and platform activations and subscriptions cannot be updated over-the-air.
