Simplify Harvesting with the New John Deere Software Update

Simplify Harvesting with the New John Deere Software Update
John Deere has now released its 19-1 software update for its Generation 4 4600 CommandCenter and all 4640 Universal Displays. This latest software update includes a high level of automation activation that allows the Machine Sync automation functionality to work on all Gen 4 platforms for tractors and combines.
John Mishler, marketing manager for precision ag technologies, notes that this John Deere software update will provide benefits that are immediately obvious to operators.
“It also enables Gen 4 Display compatibility with more John Deere equipment, including 8000- and 9000-Series Forage Harvesters, documentation of weather and field conditions, expands AutoTrac™ functionality and automation on more equipment, and provides additional levels of security than before,” Mishler says.
Gen 4 displays that have the 19-1 software update now show area remaining and estimated time to completion for field operations. Additionally, it doubles the number of legend colors on the display. This allows operators to keep a closer eye on yield, prescriptions, and as-applied maps in greater detail when viewed on the display or through the John Deere Operations Center.
Weather and field conditions can now be documented directly from the cab, and wind direction and speed, weather, and soil and field conditions can all be recorded as they change throughout the day. Operators can also use JDLink Connect to view this information by any web-connected device through the John Deere Operations Center and the MyOperations mobile app.
For security purposes, this John Deere software update provides operators with the option to secure their displays and receivers by using a 4-digit PIN.
