An infographic details the specifics and benefits of JDLink

What is JDLink™?

  • JDLink is John Deere's telematics system and the core component of John Deere ForestSight™.
  • It enables you to manage your entire fleet from your desktop or mobile device.
  • It gives you anytime remote access to machine hours and location, fuel consumption, idle time, maintenance reminders, and more.

How does JDLink Work?

  • JDLink uses durable onboard telematics hardware to capture incredibly detailed, real-time data for every enabled machine in your fleet.
  • You can use machine utilization and efficiency measures to make improvements and boost profitability.

Alert Function

  • The alert function lets you know immediately if there's a problem.
  • Your dealer can read and clear diagnostic codes, record machine-performance data, and even update software without traveling to the jobsite.
  • If necessary, your dealer technician may be able to arrive at the jobsite with the right parts and tools in hand on the first trip.

Jobsite Security

  • Geofence and curfew features to help prevent theft and unauthorized use.
  • Limit when and where machines can be used and be promptly notified when those limits are violated.
