John Deere RDA enables quick communication around settings or messages on the displays. This allows improved communication between the equipment operator in the field and an offsite farm manager or dealer. The ability to view the machine’s settings, performance, and other information is invaluable when managing or supervising an operation. The operator’s equipment keeps running productively and enables the producer or dealer to provide remote support to improve the quality and efficiency of work while saving time and money.

Dual-display connection capability

Dual-display connection allows both the GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display and Generation 4 CommandCenter to be viewed during one RDA session. The user simply toggles between the tabs in their browser or in their mobile device. They can view exactly what the operator sees on the GS3 2630 Display and Generation 4 CommandCenter from almost any Internet-connected device. RDA is available on the 4600 and 4100 CommandCenter.
