Automatic guidance – Make the most of your day
StarFire™ 6000 Receiver
Accessing John Deere’s automatic guidance solutions starts with the StarFire 6000 Receiver. Capabilities include better signal stability for maximum uptime and SF3 accuracy. This means the receiver always keeps you on track whatever the conditions are. With SF3, you get repeatable results – no guidance line or boundary drift – throughout one season. The StarFire 6000 Receiver works seamlessly with all John Deere guidance systems and all accuracy levels (SF1, SF3, Mobile RTK and Radio RTK).

Intelligent Total Equipment Control integrates AutoTrac™ automatic steering and implement management systems to control tractor speed, front and rear mounted implements, and differential lock engagement, among other parameters. This allows for hands-free turns while reducing soil compaction, resulting in picture-perfect headlands and consistent crop growth.
The near infrared sensor, as utilized by the John Deere forage harvester (HarvestLab™ sensor) and fitted to the slurry tanker, measures nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, ammonium (NH4), volume, and dry matter on the go with more than 4000 measurements a second. With a 6R Series Tractor featuring the AutoPowr™ transmission, the sensor can directly command speed adjustment to the tractor on adjust application rates based on your desired nutrient target level and even leverage a prescription map. This enables you to maximise yields and meet legal requirements while cutting costs on mineral fertilizer.

Intelligent Ag navigation and fleet logistics
John Deere intelligent Ag navigation and fleet logistics
Getting the right equipment to the right place at the right time is key to maximising efficiency and timeliness of multi-machine operations. MyJobConnect Premium extends MyJobConnect to a true mixed-fleet logistics solution. It features fleet overview and turn-by-turn navigation based on a comprehensive field road database, including estimated arrival times for vehicles at the predefined destination. For example, setting up navigation to the lead machine enables silage trailers to take the fastest and safest way to the forage harvester and updates the tour of all fleet members as soon as the machine is moving to the next field.
