Work monitor

The work monitor application displays the performance information about the task being performed by the machine. The user is shown averages, totals, and productivity of the machine, such as area worked, average working speed, and fuel usage. The values of the work monitor can be reset by the user at any time. Specific values of the work monitor can be configured by the user to be shown on a run page.

NOTE: The work monitor application replaces values found in the universal performance monitor with the GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display.

Video capability

4240 Universal Displays are equipped with one video input. The image will appear on the 4240 Universal Display. The camera (video observation system) is available through JD Parts. All harnessing, inputs, outputs, and software support Voyager® camera systems. Other camera systems will require third-party harnessing and converter for use. The Gen 4 4240 video connector display bulkhead harness (PFP17673) from John Deere is required where a separate video connector is established.

Dual display 

John Deere Gen 4 Universal Displays may be configured to run with GS3 and Gen 4 CommandCenter™ displays on machines approved in the machine compatibility section.

The 4240 Universal Display is not compatible with the Gen4 Extended Monitor.

On-screen help and diagnostic text

There are a number of different ways to get meaningful on-screen help when navigating the Gen 4 Universal Display. The help icon is located on the default shortcut bar on the bottom of the run page. This icon gives detailed information of all contents of the operating system. Simply select the help icon and navigate to the information section that is needed.

 

Additionally, application-based help is also available in all locations of the Gen 4 Universal Display. Simply click on the {i} icon available on the title bar to see more information on the application currently being used.

 

Diagnostic text and information throughout the operating system is available for better understanding of whether applications are operating as directed.

Users and access

Users and access allow the owner or manager to lock out certain functions to prevent operators from accessing or changing settings. Lock-out functions are managed with a defined pin for the administrator.

 

The Gen 4 Universal Display can be set to one of two profiles, administrator or operator. The administrator profile is always set to the full access group. This group allows unlimited access to all of the features and has the ability to lock and unlock features in the operator profile.

4240 Universal Display4240 Universal Display

Producers purchasing a 4240 Universal Display have an abundance of choices when deciding which Precision Ag applications to use on their display. The 4240 Universal Display includes basic documentation with the display purchase and is priced with a permanent, non-transferable AutoTrac™ activation.

  • Some producers may want an implement-only display. They can purchase the display less AutoTrac activation.
  • Some producers may want to use the display as an automated guidance-only display. They can purchase the display with the default permanent, non-transferable AutoTrac activation.
  • Some producers may want to use the display for more advanced Precision Ag applications such a pulling a tow-behind sprayer. They should consider the 4240 Universal Display with the default permanent, non-transferable AutoTrac activation and add a 1-year 4240 Data Sync and Sectional Control subscription.
  • Other producers may want the functionality provided with Section Control and Data Sync but not need AutoTrac. They should consider the 4240 Universal Display less AutoTrac activation and add a 1-year 4240 Data Sync and Section Control subscription.

Regardless of the choice a producer makes during the initial purchase, a permanent, non-transferrable 4240 AutoTrac activation or a 4240 Data Sync and Section subscription can be added as a field-installed option. This approach allows producers to start their Precision Ag journey with a Gen 4 display and add the applications they want and need as they become more comfortable with John Deere Precision Ag Technology over time

This document lists all the compatible equipment approved with the software update 19-2 release, and is subject to change with newer software updates. To ensure complete and proper compatibility, the most current version of implement control unit software, Generation 4 Display software, or compatible farm management information software (FMIS) should be used. Non-current software versions will require an update before support can be provided. Unapproved software version configurations will not be supported.

The software update 19-2 release is only compatible with 4600 CommandCenter™ v2 processors. Software update 17-2 is the last release that was compatible with 4600 v1 processors.

Server serial numbers are as follows:

  • v1 = RWG prefix
  • v2 = PCG prefix

Wirelessly transfer data

John Deere Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) helps producers save time, money, and increase productivity through telematics-enabled data transfer via JDLink™ Connect wireless telematics. 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 producer uptime and productivity, reducing the risk of data loss, and enabling easy data sharing and more timely decision making.

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

Wireless Data Transfer

With WDT, producers can manually send data wirelessly to the John Deere Operations Center; data is available to review in Files and then later in Field Analyzer and the MyOperations™ mobile app. To enable WDT on a Gen 4 Display, producers must manually navigate to the Menu, System, File Manager, Export and then begin selecting the data they want to send to the John Deere Operations Center.

NOTE: WDT on a Gen 4 Display does not include any auto send triggers similar to the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display which automatically sent data after a change in client, farm or field.

Set-up files and prescriptions can be transferred wirelessly from the Operations Center to the 4600/4200 CommandCenter or 4640/4240 Universal Display anytime, eliminating trips to the machines’ locations and allowing for more timely completion of field operations. Modified setup files and prescriptions will not overwrite files currently on the Gen 4 Display; only new or modified information will be imported from the setup file.

Requirements for WDT
  1. An active JDLink Connect subscription on a Modular Telematics Gateway (MTG)
  2. Organization set up in the John Deere Operations Center
Data Sync

Data Sync automatically sends documentation data to John Deere Operations Center every 30 seconds. Producers have the opportunity to analyze data from completed fields or view where field work is in process, making it easier for producers to make operational decisions. Data is available to analyze from any internet-connected device to make important production decisions and give operations the ability to invoice work recently completed. There are triggers that make the data available within the John Deere Operations Center including: after a field has been completed, after new work has started, or a half hour after field work has been stopped.

Requirements for Data Sync
  1. An active JDLink Connect subscription on an MTG
  2. Gen 4 CommandCenter Premium or Automation activation; 4640 Premium or 4640 Automation subscription; 4200 CommandCenter Data Sync and Section Control activation; or 4240 Data Sync and Section Control subscription
  3. Organization set up in the John Deere Operations Center

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.

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 is enabled with purchase of the Premium or Automation Activation/Subscription, automatically sending your data to the Operations Center every 30 seconds, 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 is able to be exported using a USB flash drive.
