John Deere advantage

What’s the John Deere advantage?

Advantages & Signals

Unbeatable accuracy. Unbeatable results.

AutoTrac is one of the most comprehensive guidance system on the market. All you need to get started is the steering kit, a display and a StarFire 3000 receiver. We give you more with the unique benefits of our StarFire 3000 receiver:

SF1 signal

SF1 signal

SF1 signal is included in all SF3000 receivers at not extra cost or yearly fee. With 23cm pass to pass accuracy (95% in 15 min) this John Deere exclusive signal is superior to EGNOS.

 

GLONASS Signal

GLONASS Signal

We use GPS and GLONASS (Russian Global Navigation Satellite System) signals to offer you more satellites than anyone else. More satellites means more signal stability and reliability. There are 56 to be precise and you benefit from them all at no extra cost.

GLONASS Signal

Integrated Terrain Compensation Module (TCM)

Integrated Terrain Compensation Module (TCM)

Say goodbye to uneven performance on uneven terrain. TCM corrects the signal inaccuracies caused by working on slopes.

 

Integrated Terrain Compensation Module (TCM)

The TCM is built in the receiver so that you don't need to install or move any extra pieces of hardware. It goes with your receiver wherever you use it to ensure true precision in any field – flat or hilly.

RTK Extend

RTK Extend

Keep working with RTK accuracy for up to 20 minutes even if you move out of the base station’s range. And beyond this first 20 minutes, if needed, your receiver will automatically switch to our SF2 signal and you can carry on working. No extra charge, of course.

Choose your Signal

The StarFire 3000 receiver is easy to set up and works perfectly with all accuracy levels (SF1, SF2, RTK), using both GPS and GLONASS satellites. But if you're not sure what accuracy level to start with, don't worry. You can start at SF1 and quickly upgrade to a higher level of accuracy as your needs change.

When combined with the AutoTrac system and a Greenstar dispaly, you'll discover what ultimate accuracy really is.

Each StarFire signal offers a different level of precision:


SF1 Signal: ±23cm pass-to-pass accuracy* 0 €/year Application: Tillage, Seeding, Fertilising, Harvesting, Moving Benefit: Cost-free accuracy

SF2 Signal: ±5cm pass-to-pass accuracy 600 €/year Application: Tillage, Seeding, Planting, Fertilising, Harvesting, Moving Benefit: More precision & profit

RTK: ±2.5cm repeatable pass-to-pass accuracy RTK correction signal available via Radio and Mobile Work longer with RTK extend Application: Tillage, Seeding, Planting, Fertilising, Harvesting, Moving, Bedding, Drip tape Benefit: Don´t crush your crop.

One receiver for every machine

Whatever the season, whatever the need, your StarFire 3000 receiver can easily be switched from one machine to another.

RTK: Your options

John Deere offers three options to help you get the most from the incredible accuracy on offer with RTK:

 

  1. Buy your own Why not invest in your very own RTK base station? If you do, you'll benefit from the ultimate repeatability of RTK when you want, where you want.
  2. Use your dealer Pay a yearly fee and subscribe to the RTK signal from your local John Deere dealer's RTK network. You'll enjoy all the benefits of ultimate accuracy without the need to purchase a base station.
  3. Go mobile If there's no dealer network available you can partner with a 3rd party signal provider and benefit from RTK corrections through the cellular network.
