Deere adds more wireless data transfer options

Mobile Data Transfer is USB-to-WiFi device that plugs into a machine display and transfers data using a smart phone.

If you run older John Deere equipment that isn’t JDLink compatible or have a mixed fleet, transferring files wirelessly to and from all your machines is now easier. Deere just introduced Mobile Data Transfer, which is a USB to WiFi device that allows you to use your smartphone to transfer agronomic files wirelessly.

“Mobile Data Transfer is the simple solution for customers who run older or mixed-fleet equipment and want immediate access of information stored in their displays,” said Jeff Nolting of John Deere’s Intelligent Solutions Group in a press release. “It eliminates the manual transfer of data. It’s a USB to WiFi device that plugs into the display and transfers data using your smartphone via the Mobile Data Transfer app. Your phone sends the data to the operations centre to give farm managers and trusted advisors immediate access.”

Deere has also introduced the MyJobs app for smartphones. It allows farm managers to plan jobs through the brand’s cloud-based operations centre and send the details of them to each employee’s smartphone in real time.
