Flags previously recorded on the Gen 4 or GreenStar 3 2630 Display can be transferred between monitors.

DUAL DISPLAY John Deere 4640 Universal Display may be configured to run with GreenStar 3 and Gen 4 CommandCenter displays on machines approved in the machine compatibility section.

An additional extended monitor is also compatible with the 4640 Universal Display.

The Gen 4 Extended Monitor provides a secondary monitor solution for those producers who want two monitors to manage their machine and precision ag applications on their 4640 Universal Display. Adding the second monitor allows producers in display-intensive operations the ability to view and adjust more of their operations at once.

Leveraging the 4640 Universal Display with Extended Monitor provides the following benefits:
One easy-to-use system. Make adjustments on the go with either monitor in one operating system while having direct access to more run pages and information at all times.
The 4640 Universal Display is built on a foundation of making it easy to use for operators. Two monitors from the same system eliminates the potential for mismatched information and the need for separate software updates for different displays.
Maximize uptime and minimize setup time with quick and easy plug-and-play over the traditional dual-display set-up steps.
Customize the in-field office to increase viewable access to the 4640 Universal Display run pages as well as the flexible mounting location capability of the additional monitor.
Avoid costly mistakes during product application through direct access to information and adjustments.

The ability to remotely view the machines settings, performance, yield, acres, and other information is highly valuable when managing or supervising an operation. It is imperative that your equipment keeps running productively and that you are enabled to provide remote support to improve the quality and efficiency of work while saving time and money. RDA enables you to get help with machine settings or identify a problem and receive assistance in navigating through the steps needed to resolve the issue.

Value of RDA:
Improved confidence in precision farming applications for all operators
Increased productivity with quicker problem resolution
Improved service from John Deere dealer and support personnel
Increased profitability by keeping equipment moving
Reduced labor and travel costs
With the 19-1 software update, the Gen 4 displays no longer require the operator to accept for remote view

Gen 4 applications and subscriptions allow data to be transferred from the display to the John Deere Operations Center for job reporting and analysis using Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) or Data Sync.
With WDT, you can manually send data to the John Deere Operations Center for review.
Data Sync automatically sends your data to the Operations Center, avoiding the need for manually exporting the data.

Wirelessly sending data helps you save time and money while increasing productivity. 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 your uptime and productivity, reduces the risk of data loss, and enables easy data sharing and more timely decision making.

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

NOTE: For users in areas of poor cellular coverage, data can be exported using a USB flash drive.

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.

To stay up to speed on which implement and product complies with which ISOBUS features, please visit the AEF website and sign up for the database. It combines tractor, sprayer, and display combination to determine compatibility.

Documentation of implement-based field operations remains important regardless of controller brand. The 4600 CommandCenter Display and 4640 Universal Display can communicate with select third-party controllers and third-party global positioning systems (GPS). Collectively, the system supplies the operator with instantaneous data while viewing the display. This information can be viewed in the John Deere Operations Center software for further analysis and reporting.

Third-party RS232 GPS compatibility enables documentation and Section Control on the 4600 CommandCenter and 4640 Universal Display; AutoTrac automated steering functionality is not compatible with third-party RS232 GPS.

When using a Raven controller, the Gen 4 display can run in conjunction with map-based prescriptions.

Over-the-air reprogramming allows for fast, simple, and convenient updates that offer improved performance and new features when producers need them, when they want them, and when they are ready for them.

Precision farming devices are attachable components (such as the StarFire 6000 Receiver, GreenStar Rate Controller, and AutoTrac Universal steering system) that complete or extend a producers precision farming solutions.

You have the power to reprogram every* Precision Ag Technology component connected to your vehicle, over the air, without the need for a USB stick or separate download program:
No more need for a USB stick
No more need for a Mac or PC laptop
No more need for GreenStar Live Update
No more need for the MyJohnDeere portal Software Manager
No more need to remember to bring all of this hardware, nor to remember how to use all of these different tools

*NOTE: Other Precision Ag Technology displays (such as the Original GreenStar Display, GreenStar 2 1800, GreenStar 2 2600, and GreenStar 3 2630) cannot be reprogrammed by the Gen 4 display. Modular Telematics Gateway and non-Precision Ag Technology components, such as the tractor radio, are not updateable by the Gen 4 display.

Producers have asked for a way to better secure their John Deere devices from improper use and thefts. With the 19-1 software update, John Deere added an enhancement to the user interface of the Gen 4 4240 and 4640 Universal Displays.

With this solution, producers have the choice to enable the security PIN code feature and set up a unique four-digit PIN code to enable and unlock their device, similar to a mobile device. Enabling this code will allow only users with the defined PIN code to access the device when it powers on.

This feature has two levels of access that can be defined. An administrator PIN code must be defined to enable the feature and should be used by the farm manager. A second optional operator PIN code can be defined for usage by operators of the machine.

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.
