John Deere Planters
The SeedStar 2 configuration above is available only on factory-installed model year 2011 and newer planters, and may be field-installed on model year 2009 and 2010 planters. Green PM/PA controllers (factory-installed on model year 2009 and 2010 planters) are not supported with a Gen 4 Display.
John Deere Dealers: Service ADVISOR™ is needed to update SeedStar 2, XP, and 3HP software.
Documentation for planters without clutches are not supported on Gen 4 Displays.
John Deere Air Seeders
The C850 Air Cart requires a 4600 CommandCenter Display or a 4640 Universal Display. GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 monitors are not supported.
StarFire Receivers can be updated in the following ways:
- Gen 4 Display USB port
- Remote software updates application (in ISOBUS VT app)
- GreenStar Display
- Service ADVISOR (John Deere dealers only)
- Receiver USB port (available only for StarFire 6000)

John Deere Operations Center
Activations/subscriptions required for Wireless Data Transfer (WDT):
- CommandCenter Premium activation or core subscription are required to wirelessly transfer files.

To use RDA on a Gen 4 CommandCenter with GS3 2630 Display connected in the same machine, GS3 2630 software version 3.22.1095 (software update 2014-1) or higher is required (4600 CommandCenter and 4640 Universal Display only).
GreenStar Rate Controller and GreenStar Rate Controller Dry
GreenStar Rate Controller Dry is supported with the 4600 CommandCenter starting with software update 2017-2. The 4600 CommandCenter and 4640 Universal Display support documentation and section control of up to five GreenStar Rate Controllers.
To update the GreenStar Rate Controller and GreenStar Rate Controller Dry, utilize Gen 4 Display USB port or use a GreenStar 2 or 3 display. John Deere dealers can also utilize Service ADVISOR.
John Deere Rate Controller 2000
The 4600 CommandCenter and 4640 Universal Display support documentation of up to four operations from the John Deere Rate Controller 2000. It is important to note that John Deere Rate Controller 2000 can control up to five operations and may be used for liquid or dry application.
John Deere Rate Controller 2000 needs to be the only ISO controller present when used with the 4600 CommandCenter. Implements equipped with controllers such as SeedStar on John Deere planters or TruSet on tillage equipment are not compatible to be used in conjunction with the Rate Controller 2000. Shared sections, which are commonly used during direct-inject applications are not supported at this time.
For more information on Gen 4 CommandCenter and John Deere Rate Controller 2000 compatibility, please visit the John Deere Ag Sales Manual.
Implements without controllers
Implements without controllers can be documented as a stand-alone operation or with a GreenStar Rate Controller. Implements without controllers cannot be documented in conjunction with a John Deere Rate Controller 2000 or any other implement control units. Multiple implements without controllers cannot be documented together.
AutoTrac Universal 200 and AutoTrac Controller
AutoTrac Universal 200 and AutoTrac Controllers are for use with the 4640 Universal Display. The 4640 Universal Display is only compatible with tractors. Please see the AutoTrac Controller Sales Manual for exact model compatibility. These products are compatible with AutoTrac Contorller-Raven, AutoTrac Controller-Reichhardt®, and AutoTrac Controller-John Deere kits.
iGrade™ automated water management
iGrade compatibility with Gen 4 Displays has not been tested with third-party control software.
Wireless Data Server apps
When updating the SeedStar Mobile app with the latest software, a new name for the app, Connect Mobile, will appear in addition to any improvements to the app. Please note, Harvest Mobile is not compatible with the 4640 Universal Display at this time.
A software update performed by an authorized ISOBUS implement dealer may be required to obtain compatible software. ISOBUS Implements must be certified through the AEF Organization to be recognized by the Gen 4 CommandCenter.
ISOBUS implements with VT4 are now supported by Gen 4 Displays. Gen 4 Displays still support older VT versions (e.g., VT2 and VT3). If an implement is not loading after updating to Gen 4 software update 2017-2, it is recommended that the implement manufacturer be contacted to get a software version that is either VT3 or VT4.
