For 2023, John Deere precision ag technology gets an update with a new G5 display family and the new JD Link modems.
With the new G5 display family, John Deere says it delivers the latest technology directly to customers. Full HD resolution, additional memory and increased processing power are to make the G5 monitor one of the most powerful displays available.
It comes with two portable versions, which can be used on all brands, two integrated monitors for specific John Deere machines and an Extended Monitor option. The G5 display is 10.1 inches and the G5Plus is 12.8 inches, meaning the G5 display family offers up to 33% more space for maps and information compared to its predecessors. Both portable displays offer additional protection through their water resistance (IP65).
The John Deere G5Plus comes with AutoTrac and Section Control as standard. Full AEF ISOBUS compatibility remains. All G5 displays will retain the user interface from Generation 4 displays. The new license program for advanced features means that farmers and contractors only pay for what they need, and upfront costs are reduced. Regular software updates are being developed to ensure that the G5 display family is already equipped for the future.
The G5Plus Universal display and the G5 Universal display will be available for order later this year. The G5Plus CommandCenter and G5 CommandCenter will be available on John Deere machines from Model Year 2024.
For farmers and contractors with a mixed fleet who want to take advantage of connectivity between machines and the cloud, John Deere offers the new JDLink M Modem as an affordable alternative to the JDLink Modem. The JDLink M Modem is a plug and play solution, which allows mixed fleets to be fully equipped easily.
The JDLink M and R Modems are compatible with the SAE J1939 protocol and can process over 14 data points from different machine brands. This compatibility enables the management of an entire mixed fleet in the John Deere Operations Center.
