The farm of the future is getting a little closer with John Deere Remote Display Access.
“John Deere Remote Display Access gives customers and dealers the ability, with the customer’s permission, to actually view and see the 2630 display right from any internet-connected computer, or laptop or mobile devices – smartphone or tablet,” explained senior product manager Dave Mulder at the 2012 Farm Progress Show.
As part of the growing suite of JDLink™ telematic products, Mulder says Remote Display Access improves communication and offers faster resolution of problems to increase equipment uptime and operational performance in the field. “It enables (the farmer) to see exactly what’s going on with any piece of equipment at any point in time,” he said. “This new telematics and wireless capability just enables us a whole new realm to go into and I think it’s just the next evolution of productivity and management.”
The Remote Display Access was just introduced in June, so Farm Progress Show was the first time many farmers got to see it. Mulder says soon they will be introducing Mobile Farm Manager, another mobile app where customers can manage agronomic data and what’s going on in their fields at their fingertips.
