ATTENTION all StarFire users

Due to a change of broadcast frequencies by the satellite, there is a need to check, and possibly update the software version in your Starfire iTC or SF3000 receiver.

This is so that the receivers are updated with the new library of frequencies, which they use to pick up the Differential correction signal. Please see the PDF below for more information.

As from February 26th, AMS subscriptions are available exclusively from your John Deere Dealer. This includes subscriptions to SF2 signal and JDLink.

This means a simplification of the order process due to a “one stop shop solution” at the dealership, and stronger dealer support capabilities due to dealer awareness and integration during the order process.
