John Deere have a wide range of tools to help you with your harvest. We have listed some of them below, but of course you can always contact the staff at your branch for more information, or specific problems.
The John Deere App Center is a tool to organize mobile apps for farming and construction customers. The apps within the John Deere App Center help users increase the performance and uptime of John Deere equipment, while lowering the cost of operation.
- JD Link App: The JDLink™ App provides selected JDLink features on iPhone and iPad devices to allow JDLink users to check their machines while they are on the go. Selected features are: Positioning of machines, getting directions to a machine, retrieving machine alerts and acknowledging them.
- John Deere MyJobs App: The John Deere MyJobs app allows managers to increase productivity and improve job quality throughout the Ag production system. Whether you are planning from the office or cab, users will be able to view a list of jobs, the details of a job, and keep others up to date on the job details and status.
- John Deere Mobile Data Transfer App: John Deere Mobile Data Transfer takes connectivity and data management to the next level. The Mobile Data Transfer app allows customers to transfer John Deere GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display files from their machines to their MyJohnDeere account using a wireless USB device and a smartphone data plan. Mobile Data Transfer also allows customers the flexibility to make last-minute prescription and setup changes, which are retrieved from the “My Files” feature in the Operations Center. Mobile Data Transfer enables easy transfer of data files to and from the display, regardless of the brand of the machine being operated
- John Deere Go Harvest App: The GoHarvest application gives S, W and T series combine operators the ability to optimize their 2012 or newer machine as they enter the harvest season. Operators choose the model of combine and type of crop. GoHarvest suggests initial settings for that crop type. GoHarvest also features a notes section and photo functionality to give combine operators a premium experience when setting their machine. GoHarvest is also a great guide to use in field for settings changes as conditions differ, and to document changes made to settings during harvest.
