Read Operator Manuals for ISOBUS Implements
In addition to GreenStar Applications, this display can
be used as a display device for any implement that
meets ISO 11783 standard. This includes capability to
control ISOBUS implements. When used in this manner,
information and implement control functions placed on
the display are provided by the implement and are the
responsibility of the implement manufacturer. Some of
these implement functions could provide a hazard either
to the Operator or a bystander. Read the operator manual
provided by the implement manufacturer and observe all
safety messages in manual and on implement prior to use.
NOTE: ISOBUS refers to the ISO Standard 11783
DX,WW,ISOBUS -19-19AUG09-1/1
Before moving machine, be sure that all persons are clear
of machine path. Turn around and look directly for best
visibility. Use a signal person when backing if view is
obstructed or when in close quarters.
Do not rely on a camera to determine if personnel or
obstacles are behind the machine. The system can be
limited by many factors including maintenance practices,
environmental conditions, and operating range.

Getting Started
Theory of Operation
IMPORTANT: It is important to follow proper
use guidelines with the touchscreen on
the 2630 GS3 display. Do not contact the
touchscreen with an object harder or sharper
than a fingertip (pen, pencil point, or any
metal objects). Heavy pressure can also
damage underlying components and void
the touchscreen warranty. Light amounts
of pressure, if exerted continuously, can
degrade touchscreen reliability.
The display is primarily used as an operator interface for
guidance and documentation applications.
The primary navigational point of the display is the
touchscreen which allows the operator to input information
by touching the screen. The 2630 can also use the display
control which allows use of input buttons and thumb wheel.
GreenStar Basics Software
The display comes standard with a basic software feature
set:
• Manual Guidance
• Documentation (field and harvest)
• On-Screen Mapping
• Prescriptions
• ISOBUS VT functionality
When connected to a GPS receiver, the system allows
the operator to drive vehicle with the aid of GPS. When
combined with an optional AutoTrac activation, and
vehicle steering kit, system can automatically guide
machine though the field.
Documentation can be used to record data tied to GPS
coordinates. On some machines, rates, yield, implement
width, or other information is recorded from the vehicle
CAN Bus. The displays can also be connected to certain
3rd-Party control units to record rate information. This
data is collected on the display memory and can be
unloaded using a USB drive into desktop software to
produce maps and reports of field activities.
NOTE: 3rd-Party control units are control units using
RS232 connection (Field Doc Connect) and
ISOBUS compliant control units supporting
Task Controller functionality.
On-screen mapping uses GPS, and a recording source
to create real-time maps of field activities. Operators are
able to see the areas or the as applied maps of the field
they have covered.
Original GreenStar Monitor function can be used to
operate selected John Deere implements as they would
normally be used with the original GreenStar display.
The 2630 is also mounted in tandem with an original
GreenStar display.
The 2630 display has an integrated performance monitor
that can be used to record area and other data based on
implement width and ground speed.
Display can also be used for machines and systems
that conform to implementation level 2 of International
Organization for Standardization ISO 11783. The purpose
of ISO 11783 is to enable electronic units to communicate
with each other providing a standardized system that is
easy to read and understand. The operator can use the
display as a tractor performance monitor and a monitor for
an ISO 11783 compliant implement.
Software updates are published at www.StellarSupport.com. Each display also comes with a GreenStar Live
Update CD. Live Update can be installed on an internet
connected PC and alert the user when updates to the display are available. Live Update guides the user through the

Potentially Have Issues Do not follow this scenario with machine and display
or data loss can occur. If display is already powered
up when the key is turned to the START position,
it could create issues with display memory and
connectivity with controllers. Starting the engine
causes a drop in current, which can restart controllers
in the wrong order as well as cause sudden data loss
on the display. ALWAYS allow the display to shut
down properly by turning the key to the STOP position
before starting the engine.
IMPORTANT: Do not remove 12 V power from display
until the LED light is black. Prematurely
removing power (green or orange light status)
may cause loss of data and/or the display
to lose functionality. It may take up to 20
seconds after removing key power for the
LED light to completely go black.
IMPORTANT: The display must always be allowed
to completely power down (LED light turns
off) whenever the key is placed in the STOP
position. Failure to do so can result in lost or
corrupted data when power is restored.
When setting up the display with vehicle
key in the accessory position (power on,
Description
engine off), turn key to STOP position for
20 seconds BEFORE starting the vehicle.
This ensures the setup data is saved to the
internal memory before operating.
If the vehicle is running during setup and
programming, turn the vehicle off with key
in the STOP position and wait 30 seconds
before restarting. This ensures that all data
is saved to the internal memory.
DO NOT turn the key to the start position
directly from the accessory position. The
reduction in voltage during the starting phase
could result in a loss of all setup data.

Installation in a John Deere Vehicle with an
ISOBUS Display
One John Deere ISOBUS display may be installed on
corner post of a John Deere machine with ISOBUS
display compatible armrest. Compatible John Deere
machines with CommandCenters are:
• 6R Tractors
• 7R Tractors
• 8R Tractors
• 9R Tractors
• S Series Combines
John Deere ISOBUS displays that can be installed on
corner post include:
• GS2 1800
• GS2 2100
• GS2 2600
• GS3 2630
4. Restart the vehicle so that both displays can reboot.
When both displays power up, some applications will
be set to ON or OFF on each display, as shown in the
table below. If the armrest display MODE, found on the
Multiple Display Settings page is set to CUSTOM and the
applications are not set as desired, select RESTORE TO
DEFAULT SETTINGS on the Multiple Display Settings on
the armrest display.

Some applications on armrest display will automatically

same CANBUS. The implement BUS (Virtual Terminal
functionality) may be turned ON or OFF on armrest display,
depending on user preference. Virtual Terminal (VT) is
part of the software that displays graphic user interfaces
of John Deere planters or other ISOBUS implements.
Installation
1. Turn OFF vehicle
2. Attach the display harness to the corner post
connector and the 26-pin display connector on the
back of the display.
3. Turn ON the vehicle. The armrest display may display
a message stating that another John Deere display
has been detected. If it does not, see the vehicle
Operator Manual to check that the Multiple Display
settings are set correctly on the armrest display.
Implement BUS is the only application that can be user
configured to be ON or OFF on armrest display. Uncheck
implement BUS to disable VT. If VT is disabled, user
interface for implement will be displayed on secondary
implement.
Check implement BUS to enable VT. If VT is enabled, user
can decide on which display the graphic user interface of
the implement should be displayed.
NOTE: Armrest display may not function properly if
a third-party display is connected to Implement
BUS. It is recommended that a second CANBUS
be installed if problems occur. See CANBUS
section of this operator's manual for more
information about CANBUS.
See View Multiple Display Settings section on next
page to find out how to access these values.

Moving ISO Implement Applications between
Two ISOBUS Displays
When display is installed on newer John Deere vehicles
that have an ISOBUS compatible display installed on
armrest, ISO implements can appear on either display.
Select Menu on each display to find the implement icons
for any ISO implements that are connected, such as
SeedStar2, StarFire receiver, or GS Rate Controller.
There are two possible ways to move ISO implement
applications to the other display.
Some ISO implements are designed to remember which
display they were on last and return to that display each
time the vehicle is started. These implements can be
moved from one display to the next using a button found
within the settings pages of the implement application.
This function is sometimes called NEXT VT. Read the
implement operator manual to determine whether it has
this functionality and how to use it.
Each time the vehicle is started, other ISO implements
that boot up first will appear on the display. If user prefers
that these implements always appear on corner post
display, turn OFF the VT on armrest display by unchecking
implement BUS. Read the vehicle operator manual to
learn how to turn OFF implement BUS on the armrest
display. The setting is found in the display settings on
the armrest display.
NOTE: The corner post display must always have
Implement BUS turned ON for GreenStar
applications to work properly.

Managing User Access
Managing User Access—Theory of Operation Dual Display Operation
Access Manager is used to manage user access to almost
any function on the display. Functions can be locked for
the operator to simplify the user experience and reduce
accidental settings changes. Once functions are locked for
“Operator Mode”, a password is required to enter “Owner
Mode” and access those functions. The current password
can be retrieved using Message Center. It is stored in
Diagnostic Address 62. See the Troubleshooting and
Diagnostics section for how to view Diagnostic Addresses.
The GS3 2630 display maybe installed on the corner
post of a John Deere vehicle that also has a display on
the armrest running Access Manager. In this case, the
Access Manager settings and Mode are NOT transferred
automatically between the displays and must be set on
each display individually.

The main function under the tests tab will be Touchscreen
calibration. Touchscreen calibration will be required when
the screen icon does not align with the area depressed.
This may be caused by normal wear and tear, age, certain
weather conditions, and contaminants on the screen
(chemicals, solvents, etc.).

Touchscreen Calibration:
1. Under the Touchscreen Calibration button a new
screen will appear with an X in the upper right corner.
2. Press the screen at the X and continue to follow the
X’s around the screen. Always press the screen
directly at the center of the X.
Reset Touchscreen calibration will abort any saved
calibrations and allow the user to start over and perform a
new calibration.
Color Test:
Under the Test button, select the color test. The color
test will display 3 distinct colors on the display for
approximately 5 seconds. If you do not see 3 distinct
colors, contact your John Deere Dealer for service.
Under the Test button, select the Touchscreen Test. This
test will allow the user to identify a pixel problem on the
screen.
1. As you touch the screen, a sighting target will show
up on the area touched.
2. Continue to touch the screen around the area of
suspected pixel malfunction and see if the sighting
target appears.
If sighting target does not appear, contact your John
Deere Dealer.

IMPORTANT: When setting up the display with
vehicle key in the accessory position (power
on, engine off), turn key to OFF position for 20
seconds BEFORE starting the vehicle. This
will ensure the setup data is saved to the
internal memory prior to operating.
If the vehicle is running during setup and
programming, turn the vehicle off with key
in the OFF position and wait 30 seconds
before restarting. This ensures that all data
is saved to the internal memory.
DO NOT turn the key to the start position
directly from the accessory position. The
reduction in voltage during the starting phase
could result in a loss of all setup data.

implement. On pull-type implements, this distance is
from rear connections pivot point of machine to front
working side of implement. Examples include front
ranks of field cultivator or seed drop point on a planter.
For planters with a 2 pt. mount, measure from where
planter pivots behind mount.
B) In-line distance from front to rear of implement. On
ground engagement tools, this is the distance from
the front rank of sweeps or points to rear rank. On a
standard planter or pull-type sprayer, this dimension
would be zero. The seed is dropped at the same point
on every row, and the sprayer has nozzles at the same
point along boom. Dimension (A) would then need to
extend to the location of deep drop point or sprayer
boom. On a spreader, (A+B) is the drop point of
product. Refer to manufacturer’s implement operator’s
manual for this value.
NOTE: Examples of equipment that will not be centered

center of tractor to the center of implement, which
is 0.0 for most implements. This dimension alerts
operator to potential collisions, and is critical to end-turn
performance. Adjust dimensions, if needed.
D) In-line distance from connection point to control
point of implement. In many cases, this distance is from
connection point to the carrying wheels. For proper
turns, measure this distance with implement at height it
typically will be at while turning.

Implement width may come from controller on

In some cases, track spacing achieves a higher
degree of precision when entered in by rows
instead of feet. Track spacing calculation uses more
decimal places when entered by rows versus three
decimal places allowed when entered by feet.
Implement Widths—Enter implement width and track
spacing for guidance to calculate total area when
documenting operation. Verify implement type, model,

independent of each other.
Defining Implement Width and Track Spacing. Define
implement width and track spacing using:
• Implement Width m (ft.)—enter total implement
•
working width
Implement Width rows—enter number of rows and the
row spacing in inches
IMPORTANT: Use width measurements to alert an
operator of potential intersections between
implement and impassable boundary. Operator
still needs to be aware of potential collisions
if there are times implement is wider than
dimension entered (for example, marker
arm lowered). If markers are used in field,
add width of both markers to give ultimate
alarms of possible intersections.
NOTE: As a buffer to avoid obstacles, additional physical
width may be added to implement to compensate
for several factors, such as GPS drift.
Physical Width—Actual width of entire implement used
in field when implement is raised. It is sometimes larger
than implement width.
Using a planter as an example, marker arms and blades
are wider than working width. Enter width if markers are
not used, or are used and folded on ends. If markers are
partially folded during turns, enter larger dimension.

4. Select HEADLAND SETTINGS to make adjustments
to the Row Heading, Offset X, and Offset Y. These are
the default settings for the approximate heading of the
rows in the field, and the width of headlands on the ‘X’
and ‘Y’ ends of the field.
PC10504CC —19—24OCT13
The heading that is entered does not need to be the
exact heading. In the example, if the heading for the
AutoTrac A-B line is 85 degrees, entering 90 degrees
creates headlands on the east and west ends of the
field. During tillage work, if the work is being done at
30 degrees from east and west, entering 120 degrees
will give headlands on all sides of the field. In this
case, Constant Offset headlands could also be used.
Efforts have been made to make the most logical
headlands based on the way the field normally is
farmed. If desired headlands are not coming out as
expected, change the Row Heading to several angles
close to the direction of travel. If still not satisfactory, a
Driven Headland boundary will need to be recorded.
NOTE: Top and bottom headlands are calculated as
offsets and may not be appropriate for all fields.
Headlands will be created when the Row Heading is
more than 15 degrees from any side of the field.
The defaults for Offsets X and Y are twice
the implement width, as entered from the
Machine/Implement page. The width of each headland
can be changed. Example: if the west end has 32
76.2 cm (30 in.) headland rows, and the East end has
48 76.2 cm (30 in.) headland rows, enter 24.4 m (80
ft) for X and 36.6 m (120 ft) for Y.

Parallel Tracking shows your position in field relative to
track that you determine with your first pass through field.
Parallel Tracking has modes to follow a straight or Curve
track and has a row finder mode. Using machine icon and
line on your display, you know which way to steer in order
to keep your path parallel with your last. Audible alerts
accompany display so you can keep your eyes on field.
AutoTrac is an assisted steering system. After operator
enters a reference path (Track 0) in AutoTrac, machine
will then steer itself parallel to that track.

AutoTrac Deactivation Messages
Turn Predictor/Headland Alert—A visual indicator is
displayed 10 seconds before approaching a predicted
turning point or headland (must be defined). When the
system detects a predicted turning point or headland, the
distance to that turning point or headland will be displayed
and will count down the intersection to that turning point or
headland. The visual indication is accompanied by tones.
NOTE: If a headland boundary is defined and
headland indicator is selected it will be displayed
instead of turn predictor.
GPS Indicator—Indicates what level of accuracy the
StarFire receiver is currently operating at (3D, SF1, SF2,
or RTK). If using a GPS receiver other than a StarFire,
the text 3D GPS will be displayed but the indicator bar
will not fill.
NOTE: AutoTrac SF1 must have a GPS accuracy
level of SF1 and AutoTrac SF2 must have a
GPS accuracy of SF2 or RTK.
Steer On/Off—The Steer On/Off button transitions
AutoTrac from being disabled to an enabled mode.
Guidance Icon—The icon represents the implement
and the pointer on the icon represents the center of the
implement. The icon changes width based upon the

Turn Predictor
Turn predictor is intended to only predict turn point of a
vehicle using Parallel Tracking or AutoTrac. It is NOT a
headland alert. Because actual field boundary is unknown,
turn predictions are based solely on previous turn behavior
of vehicle. Turn predictions will not coincide with field
boundary if field boundary is not linear and continuous, or
if operator makes turns before or after field boundary.
NOTE: Turn predictor cannot be turned off if no seat
switch is present on the vehicle.

Guidance Line Calculation
Guidance Line Calculation allows an operator to create
new Straight Track guidance lines on their GreenStar
3 2630 display using non-John Deere calculations.
Throughout the industry, there are different calculations
used for creating straight tracks. This feature allows an
operator to choose a calculation type.
Non-John Deere 1: Uses BEELINE calculations when
creating a Straight Track.
Non-John Deere 2: Uses Trimble® calculations when
creating a Straight Track.
Set Track 0
PC16241 —UN—19NOV12
Guidance Line Calculation defaults to John Deere (H).
Select Non John Deere 1 (I) or Non John Deere 2 (J) from
Guidance Line Calculation drop-down box (E) to change
calculation.
PC16240CC —19—24OCT13
This feature is only supported when creating new
Straight Track guidance lines. All methods for creating
a new straight track are supported, but A+B method is
recommended when creating new guidance lines based
on crop rows or beds that were previously made with a
competitive system. Using the same A+ Heading as a
competitive system will not result in desired performance.
NOTE: To create John Deere guidance lines, use
default calculation of John Deere.
This feature does not allow an operator to import
competitive guidance lines.
Guidance Line Calculation is only supported when
Straight Track mode is selected.
Guidance Line Calculation feature does not
affect previous guidance lines.

Adaptive Curve Mode
Theory of Operation
PC9029 —UN—17APR06
PC9028 —UN—16APR06
Curve track allows operator to record a manually driven
curved path. Once the first curved pass is recorded and
machine is turned around, operator can Parallel Track™
or activate AutoTrac™ once propagated path appears.
Machine is guided along subsequent passes, based off
previous recorded pass. Each pass is generated from the
previous pass to ensure steering errors are not propagated
through entire field. Generated passes are not identical
copies of the original pass. Curvature of the pass changes
to maintain pass to pass accuracy. When necessary,
operator can change curve path anywhere in the field by
simply steering machine off the propagated path.
NOTE: Skip pass is not available in adaptive curve mode.

C—Gap in Curve Track
D—Manualy Driven Segment
When operating curve track in a field and an obstacle is
encountered, such as a well head, telephone pole, or
power line, operator must drive around these obstacles.
Recording On: If recording is left on while driving around
an obstacle, deviation to propagated path is recorded and
becomes a part of the path. On next pass when area is
approached in the field, propagated path machine is on
incorporates the deviation and machine steers along the
deviation. To straighten out deviation, operator takes over
manual steering of machine to straighten out deviation.
Once operator has driven past deviation in field and
reacquired intended path, resume switch can be engaged
and AutoTrac™ takes over machine steering.
Recording Off: If recording is turned off when obstacle
is approached and steered around and recording turned
back on once obstacle has been navigated around and
AutoTrac™ activated to finish the pass, a gap is present in
recorded path where the obstacle is. On next path when
machine approaches gap, operator takes over manual
steering of machine and navigates through gap. Once gap
has been navigated and propagated path is reacquired,
AutoTrac™ can be activated. Gap does not appear in
subsequent passes.

Adaptive Curves Gap Fill
If recording is turned off momentarily and turned on,
a straight line is generated to fill gap where recording
was turned off if it meets a set distance and heading
requirement. AutoTrac™ does not deactivate on
subsequent passes. If generated straight line where gap
would have been on subsequent passes is incorrect,
operator takes over manual steering of machine and
navigates along best fit line.
PC17071CC —19—24OCT13
Example: An operator drives a SPFH along a truck until
truck is full. Operator stops when truck is full and truck
drives away. Operator of the SPFH raises the head and
backs up to wait for the next truck. Raising the head
turns documentation off, breaking the adaptive curve into
separate segments. On subsequent passes, gap is filled
by the white line. The gap in the blue line is still shown on
the display, but does not disable AutoTrac™.

A—Start Recording of AB Curve
(Track 0)
B—Stop Recording of AB Curve
(Track 0)
C—Paths Generated from Track 0
AB Curves allows an operator to drive a curved line in
the field with two end points (beginning and end) and
the passes parallel to the track in either direction will be
generated based on the original driven track. Each pass
is generated from the original driven pass to ensure that
steering errors are not propagated through the entire field.
The passes are not identical copies of the original pass.
The curvature of the pass changes to maintain pass to
pass error.
Once the AB curve (Track 0) is recorded 5 tracks will be
generated (Track 0 and 2 passes on either side of Track
0). When the vehicle drives past the 2nd track from Track
0, ten additional tracks will be generated in that direction.
The system will continue to generate additional passes
when the vehicle drives past the last pass displayed on
the screen.
NOTE: Skip pass is available in AB Curves mode
Generating AB Curve Path Information As the system
generates the initial passes after recording Track 0 or when
generating additional passes the text “Generating AB
Curve” will be displayed on the perspective view. During
this time you will not be able to track off of any paths.
AB Curve Generation Limits The initially recorded AB
curve must be at least 10 feet in length to be a valid AB
Curve to use for guidance. The vehicle must be within 400
meters (0.25 miles) of where Track 0 was recorded for the
system to start generating curve paths. If the vehicle is at
this outer limit it may take several minutes to generate
a path that shows up on the screen. During this time
“Generating AB Curve” will be displayed on the screen.
Straight Line Extensions AB Curve paths are generated
with a 91 m (300 ft) straight line extension attached to the
end of the actual recorded path.
Multiple AB Curves in a field A field can contain multiple
AB Curve paths. Each AB curve for a field must be
recorded and uniquely named.
Track Numbering Tracks will be numbered to allow for
skip pass and to aid in finding passes. The direction
label (N,S,E, or W) is defined by the heading determined
between the first and last point in the curve.

PC16166CC —19—24OCT13
Example: If length of center pivot is known, this feature
aids in lining up an implement for first pass. For example,
if center pivot is 305 m (1000 ft.) long, and implement
is 12 m (40 ft.) wide, drive 299 m (980 ft.), and center
shift guidance line. Another example is if the implement is
6 m (20 ft.) wide, drive 302 m (990 ft.), and center shift
guidance line.
Go to Guidance Settings > General Settings to enable or
disable Distance to Center of Pivot.
Shift Track When in Circle Track Mode
NOTE: RTK Absolute Base Mode is highly recommended
in high accuracy applications when using Circle
Track. Only RTK Absolute Base Mode provides
consistent repeatability and accuracy in Circle Track.
Use shift track to shift tracks radially closer or further from
center point. Shift track does not move center point. Shift
track allows operator to use various implement widths,
account for different lengths of center pivot towers, or to
account for stretching or shrinking of center pivot irrigation
sections.
PC16167CC —19—24OCT13
Example 1: Operator makes first pass through field, saving
circle center information to Pass 1 and River Farm > East
Field using a 4.6 m (15 ft.) implement. Operator returns for
second pass in same field with 9.1 m (30 ft.) implement.
To follow stored track, operator recalls saved circle center
Pass 1, line up machine on desired track, and use a one
time shift track to allow for difference in implement widths.
Example 2: Operator uses SF2 and defines a circle center
point by manually driving circle. Next day, operator returns
to field and finds AutoTrac™ is not lining up properly with
previous path due to GPS drift. Operator drives circle to
find circle center point.

When operating circle track in some slope conditions,
circle track spacing and center pivot track do not match in
tracks away from the center pivot. This spacing is due to
difference between distance traveled over a hill and on a
level plane. AutoTrac™ draws the circle spacing as if the
plane were level. This difference in distance increases as
slope increases.

Implement is set up to run properly (wear parts such
as shanks, shovels, and sweeps are in good working
condition and correctly spaced).
Understand how field/soil conditions affect system
(loose soil requires more steering than firm soil, but firm
soil can cause uneven draft loads).
Status Pie
IMPORTANT: Although AutoTrac system can be
activated when SF2 (or SF1 if using AutoTrac
SF1 activation) correction signal is confirmed,
system accuracy may continue to increase
after powering up system.
Operator must maintain responsibility for
machine and must turn at end of each track.
This system will not turn at end of a track
unless equipped with iTEC Pro.
AutoTrac SF2 activation will operate on
SF1, SF2, or RTK signal.
AutoTrac basic system is intended to be used as an
assistance tool to mechanical markers. Operator must
evaluate overall system accuracy to determine specific
field operations where assisted steering may be used.
This evaluation is necessary because accuracy required
for various field operations may differ depending on
farming operation. Because AutoTrac uses StarFire
differential correction network along with GPS, slight shifts
in position may occur over time.
AutoTrac Accuracy— Overall AutoTrac system accuracy
is dependent upon many variables. Equation looks like:
AutoTrac SF1 activation will operate on
SF1 signal only.

Difficult ground conditions (extremely soft or extremely
rough) require additional tuning beyond the capabilities of
standard Steering Sensitivity value.

AutoTrac Advanced Settings.
Too High—Setting steering sensitivity to highest level
will not result in maximum tracking accuracy. If steering
sensitivity is too high, excessive front wheel motion
will be observed which reduces accuracy and causes
unnecessary front axle component wear. At extreme
high levels, machine motion will become large enough to
cause steering sensitivity to be momentarily changed to
default level. Wheel motion to watch for when determining
if aggressiveness is too high occurs at an interval of
approximately 1 second from side to side as shown in
FIGURE B. If excessive wheel motion is observed, lower
steering sensitivity by small increments until desired
performance is achieved.
AutoTrac Advanced Settings software includes six different
tunable sensitivities that allow finer adjustment of
AutoTrac system. The following are details for tuning
this software:
1. Check & fix other problems before you
tune—Perform necessary mechanical checks and
calibrations through associated tractor. It is important
to do this step first otherwise you run the risk of
masking actual machine faults and wasting your time
tuning a system that cannot be tuned.
2. Characterize current AutoTrac problem—There are
various types of issues this software may be able to
resolve. First, the specific type of problem needs to be
identified from the possible items below:
Advanced AutoTrac Settings
Tuning Recommendations
NOTE: AutoTrac Controller has been tuned to perform
well in most field conditions using the variety of
implements encountered by AutoTrac. However, for
those conditions outside of normal, we have provided
Advanced Settings to allow operator fine-tune their
systems for specific field conditions and implements.
a. Excessive Wheel Motion—Overall AutoTrac
performance is acceptable, but operator is
concerned about how quickly the wheels are
twitching back and forth.
Problem or Situation:

b. Aggressive S-ing Motion—Continual back and
forth motion as observed by operator looking out
over front nose of tractor. Although a lot of motion is
observed, off-track error shown on display (distance
away from AB line) is often relatively small.
c. Lazy S-ing Motion—Performance of AutoTrac
seems sluggish when trying to stay on line and
slowly wanders from side to side.
d. Lazy Line Acquisition—AutoTrac appears
sluggish during line acquisition and tractor remains
off to one side of line for a long time before getting
lined up.
e. Aggressive Line Acquisition—AutoTrac
overshoots line, and continues to overcompensate
during acquisition. Results in high frequency, tight
S-ing pattern during acquisitions.
f. Lazy Curve Track Performance—AutoTrac is
sluggish in Curve Track mode resulting in slow,
wandering S-ing about the desired line and often
tracks to the outside of desired path.
g. Aggressive Curve Track Performance—AutoTrac
exhibits rapid and high frequency corrections in
Curve Track mode, resulting in a tight S-ing pattern
or tracking to the inside of desired path.
3. Access Advanced Settings page on GS3.
4. ATI Advanced Settings Parameters.
a. Line Sensitivity Heading: Determines how
aggressively AutoTrac responds to heading error.
Higher Settings: Result in more aggressive
response to vehicle heading error.
Lower settings: Result in less aggressive response
to vehicle heading error.
Range: 50 to 200.
b. Line Sensitivity Tracking (Lateral Gain):
Determines how aggressively AutoTrac responds
to off-track (lateral) error.
Higher settings: Result in more aggressive
response to vehicle off-track error.
Lower settings: Result in less aggressive response
to vehicle off-track error.
Range: 50 to 200.
c. Heading Lead: Determines impact of yaw rate
(vehicle rate of turn) on tracking performance.
Heading lead acts as a look-ahead parameter and
can be used to minimize over steering. Large
adjustments may result in poor performance.
Higher settings: Result in more aggressive
response to yaw rate.
Lower settings: Result in less aggressive response
to yaw rate.
Range: 50 to 130.
d. Steering Response Rate: Adjusts rate of vehicle
steering in order to maintain tracking performance.
Increasing steering responsiveness generally
results in better tracking performance.
Higher settings: Result in better tracking
performance but may also cause increased wheel
motion or jittery behavior.
Lower settings: Results in decreased wheel motion
but may also result in worse tracking performance.
Range: 50 to 200.
e. Curve Sensitivity: Determines how aggressively
AutoTrac responds to a curve in track. This setting
affects performance in curve track guidance only.
Higher settings: Turn vehicle in a smaller radius
(tighter) around curve.
Lower settings: Turn vehicle in a larger radius
around curve.
Range: 50 to 200.
f. Acquire Sensitivity: Determines how aggressively
vehicle acquires track. This setting affects
performance while acquiring track only.
High settings: Result in more aggressive line
acquisitions.
Lower settings: Result in smoother line acquisitions.
Range: 50 to 200.
5. Follow Tuning Instructions—First try to adjust
settings based on how it was characterized in Step
2. If familiar with how settings affect performance,
proceed to general tuning instructions if desired.
Although customer’s comfort needs to be taken into
account, try to tune tractor based on lateral error
on GS3 and tracks that tractor leaves behind. After
finding a reasonable set of parameters, try running
tractor at different speeds to ensure settings are
still acceptable. Sometimes settings that maximize
AutoTrac performance are very close to making
operator feel uncomfortable.
General Tuning Instructions
Adjustment Recommendations:
• Steering Sensitivity—Set at 100 before making
other adjustments – after that make adjustments in
increments of 10.
• Line Sensitivity Tracking—Adjust in increments of 20.
• Line Sensitivity Heading—Adjust in increments 10.
• Heading Lead—Adjust in increments 10.

One Value at a Time—Attempt to adjust settings in
problem field conditions while AutoTrac is active.
1. Start with factory default settings.Steering
Sensitivity value will correlate to the value on the
Guidance View Tap. Attempt to use a value for this
setting that is similar to conditions in which you are
running (70 for concrete, 100 most conditions, 120
for soft ground). This number may still need to be
modified beyond suggested settings.
2. While AutoTrac is active in problem conditions (such
as speeds, ground, or tire setup), increase/reduce
Line Sensitivity Heading by a factor of 10.
3. If change in Line Sensitivity Heading is ineffective at
addressing the issue, reset Line Sensitivity Heading
parameter and increase/reduce Heading Lead in
same manner as the previous step.
4. If none of the previous steps were effective, reset
Heading Lead and increase/reduce Steering
Response Rate in a similar fashion to previous steps.
Combining Settings—If the above procedure does
not give satisfactory performance and once you have
become more comfortable with how parameters change
AutoTrac performance (as detailed in the previous step),
try different combinations of parameters while AutoTrac is
active. The following chart should be used as a reference
and contains suggested values based on various types
of conditions, please note that values may need to be
adjusted beyond these recommendations to achieve
satisfactory performance.
down this parameter until an acceptable amount of
wheel motion exists. Although it may be possible for
this parameter to be changed independently, you may
need to increase Line Sensitivity Heading and/or Line
Sensitivity Tracking (lateral) gains to compensate for
the wheel motion decrease. Keep in mind that forcing
this value too low may compromise AutoTrac accuracy
because this responsiveness determines how quickly
the system can compensate for off-track error. The
recommended Steering Wheel Speed setting should
be adjusted until there is slightly less wheel motion
than what is considered excessive by the operator.
2. Aggressive S-ing Motion—The two main
adjustments to address aggressive S-ing motion are
Line Sensitivity Heading and Heading Lead. Start
by increasing Heading Lead to enable system to
look further ahead when making corrections. If this
is unsuccessful, the likely cause is overaggressive
Line Sensitivity Heading and this gain should then be
reduced. Forcing this gain low may require an increase
in Line Sensitivity Tracking (Lateral) gain to maintain
overall system performance at an acceptable level.
3. Lazy S-ing Motion—This may be the most difficult
situation to address because the sluggish behavior
can be caused by field conditions or machine setup.
In some cases, tuning the gains may not achieve
performance desired. Start by increasing Line
Sensitivity Tracking and check performance. If system
remains sluggish, increase Line Sensitivity Heading
until system begins to respond more aggressively. If
fine-tuning is needed, Steering Response Rate can be
adjusted accordingly, increasing this value will make
system more aggressive.

AutoTrac System Accuracy
Accuracy Equation
AutoTrac System Accuracy = GPS Signal Accuracy + Steering Kit Type + Vehicle Setup + Tracking Mode + Implement Setup +
Field/Soil Conditions
GPS Signal Accuracy
The starting point of any system is the receiver. Guidance
begins with that receiver receiving raw GPS signals from
satellites and a differential correction to that signal. Raw
GPS tells the receiver approximately where it is, and the
differential correction signal hones into its actual position.
Fifteen-minute pass-to-pass accuracy is the range of
accuracy that a customer will experience in typical
conditions. For example, the SF1 signal has a 15-minute
pass-to-pass accuracy of 33 cm (13-in.) 95% of the time.
This means that the accuracy of a StarFire iTC with SF1
signal will show a location 33 cm (13-in.) or less to its
actual position 95% of the time and 16 cm (6.5-in.) or less
68% of the time. The signal accuracy that the customer is
using helps determine the accuracy they can expect.
Steering Kit Type
Steering Kit Type refers to which type of AutoTrac vehicle
kit, ATU, or integrated AutoTrac steering kit is being
used on the machine. While performance can be similar
between a properly set up ATU kit and an integrated kit,
testing has shown that total system error may be greater
with the ATU kit than with the integrated kit. Customers
may notice delayed line acquisition and higher off-track
errors with the ATU kit. AutoTrac universal kit on 2WD
machines may also have less accuracy due to less steering
authority on the front end. For maximum accuracy, both
the integrated kit and the ATU kit need to have sensitivities
properly set up and monitored for field conditions.
Vehicle Setup
Proper setup of vehicles is crucial to the performance
of AutoTrac. This includes making sure the vehicle is
ballasted by increasing weight on the steering axle up
to, but not exceeding the weight capacity of the tires to
improve steering authority. Please note that if additional
attachments, such as side or front mounted saddle
tanks, are installed, ballast can be affected. Additional
attachments need be taken into account when selecting
proper ballasting. Along with increased ballast, it is
important to remember AutoTrac performance will vary
by platform due to inherent vehicle design differences.
For example, track tractors give an operator very good
accuracy control, but a sprayer or 4WD tractor loses
some of that accuracy control due to differences in drive
train and steering response. Ground speed also affects
performance. With the ability to operate at higher speeds,
operators need to remember higher speeds impact
performance. Using AutoTrac above 19 km/h (12 mph),
especially when using Curve Track, will give accuracy
on the ground that may be less than desirable for some
row-crop applications.
Please refer to machine operator’s manual for complete
recommendations on ballast.
Tracking Mode
Tracking Mode refers to the AutoTrac mode being used
with the system (Straight Track, Circle Track, or Curve
Track). With Straight Track and Curve Track, multiple A/B
lines can be set based off the initial track and implement
width. In Adaptive Curve mode, multiple Adaptive Curves
can be recorded and stored on the display. While John
Deere Curve Track software "smooths" the track to record
a better curved line, there is still the opportunity for greater
error on the ground with Curve Track than in both Straight
Track and Circle Track. Once all tracks have been laid and
the vehicle is operating in repeat mode, the vehicle still
has the possibility for increased error due to the machine
characteristics while navigating through a curve pass.
GPS Signal Accuracy, Vehicle Setup, Implement Setup,
and Field/Soil Conditions still affect the accuracy equation.
Implement Setup
A common cause of unsatisfactory performance of the
AutoTrac system is improper implement setup. It is best
to ensure AutoTrac performance of the vehicle alone is
sufficient prior to attaching to an implement. Once the
vehicle is proven to sufficiently track up and back on
the same line, connect the implement to ensure overall
system performance. The implement must pull straight
and level behind the vehicle, meaning all parts (shanks,
planter units, etc) need to be spaced appropriately and
should not be damaged or worn unevenly from one side
to the other. A good exercise is to measure from the
center line of the tractor to each individual engagement
point to ensure the implement is symmetrical. This helps
avoid uneven side-to-side draft on the tractor. When
using integral planters on flat and level ground, sway
blocks should be set to allow the free travel of the tractor
separate from the implement, approximately 3.8—5.0
cm (1.5—2.0 in.) of travel without allowing the lower
arms of the three-point to come in contact with the tires.
Sway blocks may need to be adjusted more tightly to
accommodate side slopes and other side draft operations
to achieve desirable implement performance.

PN=141
Guidance
The environment in which the vehicle is operating
also affects the performance of the AutoTrac system.
For example, loose soil conditions can reduce the
effectiveness of the steering system because traction
is lost. Firm soil conditions can cause uneven loads in
high-draft applications. Differential Lock can provide
some compensation to lost traction and uneven loads or
terrain, depending on the situation and operation being
performed. However, it must be used at the operator’s
discretion and only if the operator feels it is beneficial
to the particular operation. Slope of the land can also
play a key factor in performance because the machine or
implement may slide down a slope while trying to operate
AutoTrac resulting in a motion called ‘crabbing’. Currently,
AutoTrac does not compensate for crabbing along a slope.
There are many factors affecting accuracy and
performance of the GreenStar AutoTrac system. It is
imperative to understand these factors and what can and
cannot be adjusted to achieve optimal performance. For
more information on expected accuracy, please visit the
accuracy calculator on www.StellarSupport.com.
Points To Remember
It is very important to remember:
• Receiver has to go through a warm-up period upon
start-up.
• Vehicle is setup properly (ballasted according to vehicle
operator manual, etc.)
• Implement is setup to run properly (wear parts such
•
as shanks, shovels, and sweeps are in good working
condition and correctly spaced).
Understand how field/soil conditions affect system
(loose soil requires more steering than firm soil, but firm
soil can cause uneven draft loads).

Performance Monitor
The GS3 2630 display comes standard with Universal
Performance Monitor (UPM), which provides productivity
information such as vehicle speeds, acre counters, and
fuel efficiency data. The information available to be
displayed in UPM depends on the vehicle on which
the display is installed. There may be slight differences
between the values from UPM and the vehicle monitor
due to rounding of decimals within UPM calculations.
30 Series Tractors
On 30 series John Deere tractors the GS3 2630 display
will disable UPM and show Advanced Performance
Monitor (APM) from the tractor TECU. APM is a feature
of the tractor and is similar to UPM. Read your tractor
Operator’s Manual for information on APM.

Dual Display Operation
The GS3 2630 display maybe installed on the corner post
of a John Deere vehicle that also has a display on the
armrest running UPM. In this case, the values displayed
by UPM on the corner post display will be sent from UPM
on the armrest display. Therefore the values will be
identical on both displays.

Percent Slip Zeroing
The operator is able to calibrate the wheel slip to zero on
certain vehicles if radar is installed.
NOTE: Wheel slip zeroing and radar calibration are not
possible on CAN based vehicles in the UPM. The
only time the user will be able to perform wheel
slip zeroing is if they are on a CCD vehicle.
When the operator initiates this function, the radar will be
commanded to a new wheel speed calibration such that the
% slip is now zero. If the system determines a calibration
is not possible under the current operating conditions,
then an alarm will be issued stating the calibration
was not successful. The first figure below shows the
zero slip button that when selected brings up the wheel
slip calibration page. The remaining figures show the
calibration pages for a successful or failed slip calibration.
Zero Slip Button
NOTE: Vehicle must be traveling between 7 and
9 km/h (4.5 to 5.5 mph) before the zero slip
button will be enabled
Reset % slip value by driving the vehicle on a hard level
surface at a constant speed of 8 km/h (5 mph). Select and
hold % slip switch for a minimum of 3 seconds to zero out
slip. It is recommended to have an implement connected

CALIBRATION
PC12879CC —19—24OCT13
Mass flow sensor must be calibrated in order to
achieve accurate grain weight measurements. Standard
Calibration procedure must be performed in every
crop that is harvested. In addition, optional Low Flow
Compensation procedure may be performed to obtain an
improved level of accuracy in situations where there are
large variations in grain flow rate.
The following paragraphs describe different screens that
are used in calibration procedure.
Calibration In Progress or System Not Calibrated Cell
This section displays if mass flow sensor has been
calibrated to desired crop.
Standard Calibration
If system has not be calibrated a message displaying
“System NOT Calibrated” will be displayed.
If standard calibration has been performed a bar graph
indicating flow rate sensor has been accurately calibrated.
If a standard and low flow calibration has been completed,
bar graph will expand to show an increased area of
accuracy.
Calibration Mode Cell
This screen indicates whether Standard Calibration
procedures or optional Low Flow procedure is to be
performed.
IMPORTANT: Before calibrating be sure that combine
grain tank and unloading auger tube are
empty. Be sure that wagon or truck hauling
grain away from combine is empty.
NOTE: Message with the following information may
appear on screen: “Low Cal Flow Comp NOT
required.” If this message appears, flow rate
during calibration was very low. Therefore, it is
neither necessary nor possible to perform optional
Low Flow Compensation procedure. Standard
Calibration procedure is sufficient.
Yield monitor system can be accurate only if
operator follows correct calibration procedures.
Select CALIBRATION MODE button to switch between
STANDARD CALIBRATION and optional LOW FLOW
CALIBRATION.
The following procedures should be performed at
maximum ground speed which operator expects
to run in this crop and condition, and in an area
that is reasonably level and of uniform yield.
Yield Calibration Cell
This screen allows calibration procedure to be started or
stopped.

Screen: SETUP—YIELD CAL
Press: SETUP >> HARVEST MONITOR >> YIELD
CALIBRATION
Mass flow sensors must be calibrated in order to achieve
accurate cotton weights. Calibration should be performed
when necessary as condition and maturity of crop change
or at least once a season.
Quick Calibration: Easiest calibration procedure when
there is no scale available for weighing harvest samples.
Standard Calibration: Used when actual weights can be
obtained from a scale for harvest samples.
Manual Calibration: Only used if previous procedures do
not work because calibration is off by more than 50%.
Before performing manual calibration, check to make sure
all components in yield monitoring system are installed and
performing correctly, and that sensors are unobstructed.
Post Calibration: Done with desktop software. There is
no post calibration procedure to be performed in field or
on display. This is recommended method for best results.
Desktop software allows post calibration using weight of
crop from whole field or weight of crop from each module,
depending on level of detail wanted.
Are you a customer that is using Harvest Monitor
Cotton for the sole purpose of seeing your yield as
you go across the field?
If you believe it is important for the Harvest Monitor Cotton
system to be as accurate as possible at all times in the
field (on display in cab), the following recommendation
can help you achieve this expectation: Mass flow sensors
need to be calibrated to achieve more accurate seed
cotton weights shown on the display in the field. This is
done by performing a QUICK CAL or STANDARD CAL
after a Row Compensation Calibration is performed in
uniform crop. STANDARD Cal, which uses actual scale
weights, is the best form of calibration to use in order to
attain more accurate cotton weights. Once calibrated,
additional calibration may be used for any substantial
changes in types of cotton, variety change, moisture, crop
management, quality of defoliation, weeds, irrigated vs.
non-irrigated, crop conditions, etc. Any of these condition
changes in cotton could cause shift in accuracy of the
system. Throughout the season it is recommended to
check accuracy by weighing the cotton. Recalibration is
suggested if you find that the system is not accurate.

John Deere Section Control
Theory of Operation
• Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver
• Display activated with Section Control
• Capable control units
John Deere Section Control is an optional software
activation that can be purchased and activated on a
display.
Section Control is an operator assistance tool that can turn
machine and implement sections on and off automatically.
Section Control utilizes the previous as-applied coverage
and boundaries (exterior, interior, and exterior headland)
to determine section status.
Section Control utilizes the following components for
operation:
BA31779,00002D4 -19-15NOV11-1/1
• Additional ISOBUS compatible implements are listed on
Compatibility
www.StellarSupport.com.
IMPORTANT: Section Control only functions
on vehicles and implements with
compatible software.
• JD 4000 Series self-propelled sprayer with SprayStar
version 5.11 or higher.
• All versions of SpreadStar™
• JD Horst 700i, 800i and 5430i Sprayer (Europe Only)
• All versions of Rate Controller
• All versions of Rate Controller - Dry
• All versions of SeedStar 2: Planters, Air Carts, and
1990CCS. (SeedStar 2 planters must be equipped with
Individual Row Unit Clutches)
To view available software and enter code to activate
Section Control see OBTAINING ACTIVATION CODE
& ACTIVATING SOFTWARE IN DISPLAY. It is found in
Display Setup section.
NOTE: A 15 hour demo activation is available on every
new display. The 15 hours count down when
Section Control is activated, and the master
switch is on. When the demo period is over,
Section Control is unavailable until the activation
code is purchased through a John Deere Dealer,
and entered into the display.

BA31779,00002D5 -19-15NOV11-1/1
Boundaries
Boundaries, though optional, can be helpful when using
Section Control. Using Minimize Overlap, an exterior
boundary can help ensure there is no application outside of
the field if a section extends over the boundary. Similarly,
a setting of Minimize Overlap on an interior boundary
allows driving across a waterway and helps ensure that
each section is off while crossing. See GREENSTAR
GENERAL BOUNDARY section for more details.
BA31779,00002D6 -19-15NOV11-1/1
Coverage Map
The As-Applied coverage map is used to show where the
vehicle has applied product. The Coverage Only is used
to show where the vehicle has been in the field (same
coverage map that is displayed on guidance pages).

As-Applied coverage maps.

John Deere Section Control
Limitations of Section Control
There are limitations of Section Control to be aware of.
GPS Accuracy Can Cause Map and Boundary Shifts
Boundary and coverage map location are based off an
initial reference point. All other mapped points within the
coverage map are positioned relative to this reference
point.
On start-up, system checks for existing coverage map for
current field. If there is existing coverage for current field,
Section Control uses original reference point from existing
coverage map. If there is no existing coverage for current
field, then system checks for boundary for current field.
If there is a boundary, Section Control utilizes center of
field boundary as reference point. If there is no boundary,
a reference point is created with first recorded point for
current field.
Poor GPS accuracy can affect boundaries and coverage
maps. It is critical to have good GPS accuracy when using
Section Control. If reference point for a Section Control
boundary or coverage map is created with poor GPS,
boundary and coverage map issues (gaps, overlaps, or
shifts) occur as GPS accuracy increases over time.
The same issues could be seen during field operation
when shading, low satellite availability, or loss of signal are
experienced. To minimize a map or boundary shift, good
GPS accuracy is needed, especially when establishing
reference point. Having Optimize Shading checked helps
prevent errors due to drastic signal level change.
Coverage Map and Actual Product Application Shows
Gaps the Full Width of Boom or Implement
If the coverage map and product application shows small
gaps within the full width of the boom or implement when
exiting headlands or other previous coverage with Section
control, do the following checks.
1. Use latest version of GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display
software. This software ensures the most recent
features and enhancements can be utilized.
2. Verify driving habits.
- Slowing down when entering headlands and rapidly
accelerating when exiting headlands increases
severity of small gaps in coverage map. Section
Control looks at speed of machine and turn on
and off times to determine when to start and stop
applying and painting coverage map. If machine
changes speed during this time period, map and
product application may not start or stop at correct
time. It is important that speed remains constant
when entering and exiting headlands.
Turning around in headland at 13 km/h (8 mph),
with a turn on time of 2 sec., machine travels
approximately 7.2 m (23.5 ft.) at 13 km/h (8 mph)
in 2 seconds. If operator accelerates during this
time, machine covers this distance in less than 2
seconds. This causes delayed product application
and mapping resulting in a gap.
- The type of end turns driven can affect Section
Control as well. The software can predict future
position of the boom relatively well during 180
degree turns, but not during light bulb turns. If light
bulb turns are made, skips in the coverage map
may be more severe when exiting headlands.
3. If gaps are still in coverage map, but product
application is physically correct, turn on and off
times and overlap settings may not be set correctly.
Reference Turn On or Off Settings and Overlap
Settings sections for adjustments.
4. If multiple operations are being carried out
simultaneously (for example, planting and applying
fertilizer), verify the following settings to prevent gaps
in the coverage map.
- Ensure section setup is similar across all operations.
For example, if planting and applying fertilizer
simultaneously and using John Deere Section
control for both operations, ensure both operations
are configured with the same number of sections. If
planter system has six sections, configure fertilizer
system to have six sections.
- Adjusting Percent Overlap in Section Control
Overlap Settings could also reduce gap issues
in multiple operation scenarios. The appropriate
percent overlap depends on section configurations
for each operation.
Prescriptions
When utilizing prescriptions, Section Control commands
sections off in zero rate prescription areas.

Required Setup
• Setup data from desktop software
IMPORTANT: Some operators connect two separate
fields into one using a “land bridge” between
them. Product may still be applied over this
strip of land if Section Control is left on. To
prevent unexpected coverage, always turn
Section Control or the master switch OFF
while transporting between fields.
NOTE: It is possible to use Section Control and display
coverage maps with documentation turned off. See
Remove, Disable, and Enable Operations section.
NOTE: Documentation is recommended, but not required
when operating Section Control. If a client, farm,
field are selected only the coverage or as applied
map for that field are displayed. When using
Headland Control a Client, Farm, Field, Field
boundary, and Exterior Headland must be defined.
The following items are optional when operating Section

See Display Setup > Display Software Activations section
in this Operators Manual for details.
Machine and Implement Offsets are critical for Section
Control to function properly.
It is highly recommended to physically measure the
machine and implement offsets. The entire distance from
the GPS receiver to the point that product is applied
has to be accounted for in the machine and implement
dimensions. Correct dimensions will ensure optimal
Section Control performance.
Reference the Machine Setup and Implement Setup
sections in this OM for complete details on how to
correctly measure the dimensions.

Overlap Settings
The system can be configured to operate in three modes:
• Minimize Skip
• Minimize Overlap
• Percent Overlap
Minimize Overlap ensures that product coverage does not
extend over or out of field boundaries. It also ensures
that product coverage does not extend into an interior
boundary. This setting could cause skips along field
boundaries or interior boundaries depending on the angle
a boundary is crossed. Minimize Overlap can result in
under application and is 0% overlap.
Percent Overlap allows settings from 0-125% Overlap.
Percentages between 0-100% ensures product coverage
into previous covered area or outside of field boundaries
based upon individual section widths. To achieve
increasing amounts of overlap, utilize the Percentage
Overlap between 100-125%. Each percentage point
above 100% accounts for one additional foot of overlap.
This allows the operator to achieve desired results and
prevent skips by creating intentional overlap.
PC13240CC —19—24OCT13
Minimize Skip ensures product coverage up to field
boundaries, interior boundaries, and as applied area
reducing skips. Minimize Skip can result in over
application and is 100% overlap.

PC14943CC —19—24OCT13
The operator can adjust the Turn on and Turn off settings
to fit a specific machine. The Turn on and Turn off settings
are to compensate for average physical machine reaction
time (Electrical & Mechanical) for applying product. Keep
in mind that the reaction time does NOT increase as
ground speed increases. The physical reaction time
remains constant for that machine configuration. The
machine travels more, or less, distance while the reaction
is taking place at different ground speeds.
NOTE: It is not recommended to utilize the Turn on and
Turn off times to achieve intentional overlap; this
overlap can cause additional system complications.
To achieve increasing amounts of overlap, utilize the
Percent Overlap between 100—125% . This overlap
allows the operator to achieve desired results and
prevent skips by creating intentional overlap.
A—Turn On Time (Sec.)
The best method to determine the correct Turn on and
Turn off times is to turn on or off a section manually.
Measure the time from when the switch is actuated to
when product starts or stops. For a sprayer, measure the
time from when the switch is actuated to when product
starts and stops reaching the crop. Enter Turn on and off
times to the nearest 0.1 of a second.
If the Turn on time is set to 0.3 seconds, the command
signal is sent when the system estimates the section to
be 0.3 seconds from the boundary or uncovered area.
The coverage map begins painting 0.3 seconds after the
command signal is sent. If the actual machine reaction
time is 0.8 seconds, the machine travel 0.5 seconds past
the boundary or into the uncovered area before applying.
In this situation the coverage map began painting before
the actual application started, therefore the two did not
match.
As the Turn on time increases, the command signal
is sent earlier as the boundary or non-covered area
is approached. If the Turn on time is 1.0 second, the
command is sent 1.0 second before the implement is
expected to reach the boundary or previously covered
area. The coverage map will start painting 1.0 second
after the command signal is sent. Section Control expects
the machine to begin applying at this time as well because
the operator entered a Turn on time of 1.0 second.
The more constant the ground speed is kept when entering
or exiting boundary or previous coverage area, the more
accurate Section Control is. If the machine speed is
B—Turn Off Time (Sec.)
drastically changing while entering or exiting a boundary or
previous coverage area, Section Control cannot anticipate
that change because it estimates your Turn on and off
position based on current position, direction, and speed.
Once a machine’s Turn on and Turn off time is determined,
it remains the same unless a dramatic system change is
made to the machine. For example, a change in system
plumbing affects the average physical machine reaction
time.
NOTE: When using multiple Section Control capable
control units, the Turn on or off time is most accurate
at the primary operation (location of implement
offsets). All other operations are less accurate.
Each operation can be assigned its own On and Off time.
Set the primary operation on/off time using the directions.
For the secondary operations, follow the directions and
then adjust as necessary to compensate for distance
from primary operation and the distance traveled by the
implement. Speed greatly influences these on/off times.
Keep this in mind when adjusting the times for secondary
operations.
NOTE: See the “Understanding Section Control Turn
on and Turn off Settings” later in this section
for examples of Turn on and off times when
multiple applications exist.

Understand Section Control Turn On and Turn Off Settings
Sprayers
Air Seeders
NOTE: Turn on and off times in examples in this section are
not true for every machine. Determine turn on and
turn off times for particular machine and implement.
Section Control operates based on drop point and
turn on and off time of primary function.
At 24 km/h (16 mph) in a self-propelled sprayer, the
average physical reaction time of the system (turn off
command at multifunction control handle, boom valve
reacts and turns off, liquid flows out of boom freely until
check valve pressure is met) is 2.5 seconds. Liquid
continues to fall to crop canopy past 2.5 seconds. Physical
overall operational reaction time could be approximately 3
seconds.
To determine turn on time for sprayer, press master on
switch and measure amount of time until product hits the
crop. To determine turn off time, shut master off switch,
and measure amount of time until product stops flowing.
Air seeders average 6–13 km/h (4–8 mph) while seeding
and have longer delay times (2–6 sec.). Largest delay
time is usually from the time the product leaves meter,
travels through air system, and reaches soil. Air carts
set turn on and off times depending on air seeding tool
configuration and product being applied. Smaller tools
usually have lower turn on and off times, while larger tools
may require larger turn on and off times.
Determining correct turn on and off time for air cart
operations may be different from other operations due to
mechanics of air cart system. First carry out machine and
implement offset measurements.
To determine initial turn on or off time for each meter, use
a stop watch to perform the following measurements.
1. Turn on fan.
2. Open half-width disconnects.
Liquid handling system takes longer to react when turn on
than turning off due to liquid pressure differentials. Turn
on time is often slightly greater than turn off time. Ground
speed only affects distance traveled while machine
reaction delay is taking place. Also, distance traveled
varies between turn on and off times and from operator
to operator.
Planters
Planters average 6—12 km/h (4—7 mph) while planting
and have minimal machine electrical clutch reaction delay
times (under 0.8 sec. usually). Largest delay time is
usually from the time the seed leaves the meter disk,
travels in seed tube, and reaches soil. At a 10 km/h (6
mph) planting speed, planters travel 2.8 m (8.8 ft.) in
1 second. Travel distance is 280 mm (10.5 in.) every
one-tenth of a second. For example, entire seed delay
time from switch being selected in cab, clutch stops, seed
meter stops, and all seed has reached soil; time elapsed
0.8 seconds. To change 0.3—0.8 sec. on look ahead
time dramatically changes location of seed placement
when turning on or off. On average, row-crop planters
generally set a turn off time to 0.3 seconds and a turn on
time between 0.5—1.0 seconds.
3. Utilize calibration switch to rotate meters
For turn on time, measure time it takes from when switch
is activated to when product exits openers at the outside
of implement. For turn off time, measure the time it takes
from when switch is activated to when product exits
openers at center of machine.
If a tool has multiple operations on separate ranks, such as
separate fertilizer placement, adjust turn on or off times to
account for distance between ranks. Section Control maps
to rear rank on tool. To adjust for time on a separate rank,
such as the front rank of a separate fertilizer placement
tool, increase turn on time by the time it takes tool to travel
the same distance as the spacing between ranks.
For example, if distance between front and rear rank is
1.5 m (5 ft.) and traveling 5 mph (7.3 fps), increase turn
on or off time for front rank operation by 0.7 sec. (5 ft./7.3
fps = 0.7 sec.) for operation.
Speed affects adjustment. For example, when traveling
13 km/h (8 mph) instead of 8 km/h (5 mph), decrease time
by 0.4 sec. instead of 0.7 seconds.

CANBUS Theory of Operation
Tractor CANBUS
The CANBUS (Controller Area Network) system is a vital
component to the operation of AMS equipment. CANBUS
is a harness that runs from the front of the machine to
the rear. All controllers on the machine communicate
with each other using the CANBUS system. Think of this
as the Interstate Highway system with cars constantly
moving up and down the system.

- The red and black wires are power and ground to
provide magnetic shielding of the CAN high and CAN

- The green and yellow wires are CAN Hi and CAN
Lo. They are the two wires that carry the messages
between the controllers.
The active terminator has 6 wires (2 reds, 2 blacks, a
yellow and a green).
• One red wire and one black wire are a power and
ground Input from the machine. These are the power

not go into the controller. These wires provide magnetic
shielding up to the controller in the branch.
The Main Line of the CANBUS is the four wires going from
the active terminator to the passive terminator. Think of
this like the main Interstate.
If a message is sent, CAN High increases 1 V and CAN
Low decreases by 1 V during the time the bit is sent.
Each controller has 2 CANBUS wires going into it.
The Branch Lines of the CANBUS are the wires coming
off the Main line and going to each controller. Think of this
like an exit ramp off the Interstate.
• These are the green and yellow wires (CAN Hi and

CANBUS
The twisted quad CANBUS wire has 4 wires twisted
together inside a black heat shrink. It is a non-shielded
wire. Instead of having a physical shield, the CANBUS
uses a magnetic shield. The red wire is a 12 volt wire that
sends current from one end of the CANBUS (the Active
Terminator) to the other end of the CANBUS (the Passive
Terminator). Since all 4 wires are twisted together, the red
wire’s magnetic field has good coverage over the other
three wires. This magnetic field makes it hard for outside
magnetic forces to penetrate the CANBUS and appear as
bogus or “garbage” messages.
NOTE: Shielding is used to keep electrical current
from passing between two wires laying side by
side but not physically touching. This is known
as electromagnetic induction (EMI).

operate without a Passive terminator. Both the
active and passive terminator have the same part
number. Because of this, they are swappable and
are great for diagnostics. If you think you have
a failed terminator, you can remove one or swap
them and see if that fixes the problem.
The Yellow wire is CAN Hi (think of the color of the sun
high in the sky) and plugs into Pin E on the terminator.
The Green wire is CAN Lo (think of the color of the
grass that is low) and plugs into Pin F on the terminator.
Resistance between these two pins is approximately 120
Ohms. Since there are two terminating resistors on the
CANBUS, the resistance between the yellow and green
wire should be 60 Ohms on a working system.
Passive Terminator
The Passive Terminator is at the very end of the CANBUS.
It must be the last node on the opposite end as the Active
Terminator on the CANBUS. The Passive Terminator is
responsible for:
Active Terminator
The Active Terminator is where the CANBUS starts. It
contains six wires and feeds the CANBUS system from
battery power. It makes sure CAN Power is always 12V.
The Active Terminator is responsible for the following
actions:
• Regulating voltages in the CAN Hi and CAN Lo wires
• Terminating messages
NOTE: The Active Terminator must be in the system for
the CANBUS to work. However, the CANBUS can
operate without a Passive terminator. Both the
active and passive terminator have the same part
number. Because of this, they are swappable and
are great for diagnostics. If you think you have
a failed terminator, you can remove one or swap

Virtual Terminal (VT) is a part of the software for John
Deere GreenStar 3 2630 displays. VT is a standardized
display for all controller and implements on the BUS. John
Deere Virtual Terminal offers a size of 640 x 480 pixels.
PC16921 —UN—08MAY13
Virtual Terminal
JD Sprayer 962i (Virtual Implement) and 2630 Display (Virtual Display) Example
The implement loads its graphic user interface, also
referred to as Virtual Implement (VI), into the VT as shown
in the example of the VI of a John Deere 962i Sprayer into
a 2630 display.
RW00482,000018E -19-24OCT13-1/5
PC17342 —UN—24OCT13
When the VI Gets loaded into the 2630 display, a status
bar will display how far the upload has progressed.
Once the VI has been loaded into the display, it will be
saved in the Displays internal memory. When the display
detects the same implement again (for example after
shutdown or disconnection) the display will load the VI out
of its internal memory and display it.
VT is comparable to a monitor on personal computers. It
displays information processed by a control unit on the
implement. This means that all pages shown in the VT
(implement icon on main menu) are neither controller nor
handled by the 2630 software.
Virtual Implement
Status Bar
Since the VT is just displaying the VI, frozen VI pages
are most likely to be caused by an overloaded implement
control unit.
VI retrieves input from operator and controls the
implement. Pressing a button causes the implement
controller to perform a specific movement of the
implement, such as opening a section.
VT displays the Virtual Implement (VI) of the implements
connected to the tractor CANBUS. VI is the graphic user
interface of the implement. While the actual implement
being utilized is located at the rear of the machine, its
user interface, the virtual part of the implement or VI, is
located on the display.

Theory of Operation
PC14108CC —19—24OCT13
As any ISO implement is connected to a machine for
the first time, data (such as implement type, model,
name, offsets, and widths) from the implement controller
is loaded and saved to displays internal memory. Any
changes made on display to implement data will be
saved to displays internal memory and sent to implement
controller to replace existing data. If the same implement
gets connected to the same display, the display will
recognize the implement and load the implement data
from the displays memory. If display recognizes the
implement data does not match data on the display it will
load implement data from the implement controller.
NOTE: When an implement gets auto detected, only
adjust implement settings (implement model,
name, turn ON/OFF times, widths, turn radius,
track spacing, and connection type) when
implement is connected to display.
As an ISO implement is connected to a machine, a
message (as shown on the right) will inform you that data
has been loaded either from the implement or from the
display. The implement detection message indicates that
Task Controller communication is active.

• Create a new implement name to store data from the
Implement Detection
implement with the newly created name.
ISO implement sends a unique identifier to the 2630
Display each time the implement is connected. This
unique identifier shows up as the implement name
in: → GreenStar → Equipment → Implement Tab.
It distinguishes the connected implement from other
implements.
NOTE: A new name should only be created when
implement is actually connected. Otherwise,
assignment of implement data will not work.
Implement Detection – Reconnected
Implement Detection – First Connection
Display will load implement data (such as widths, offsets,
connection type, and turn on/off times) from the implement
memory into the display memory, when it detects a unique
identifier for the first time. Once the new implement has
been detected the operator can:
• Use implement with the new unique identifier without
making data changes.
• Change implement data to an existing name to assign
implement data stored on the 2630 display to the
connected implement.
NOTE: An existing name should only be selected
when the implement is connected. Otherwise the
assignment of the implement data will not work.
If an implement has been connected to the display before,
the display will recognize the unique identifier. The
machine will then load data from displays internal memory
unless display recognizes implement data has changed.
This means that all data the customer has entered for this
specific implement name, (such as connection type, turn
on/off times, track spacing, physical widths, etc.), will be
displayed correctly.
NOTE: If implement data is not correctly stored on
the implement controller, then the 2630 display
will not be able to upload or show correct data.
John Deere highly recommends verifying values
on equipment setup pages (Menu, GreenStar,
Equipment, and Implement Tab).

Remote Display Access
Theory of Operation
NOTE: The following functionality may not be available
in all countries at time of publication.
John Deere Remote Display Access (RDA) enables
JDLink™ operator to view the operating GreenStar™ 3
2630 display from a remote location. With this feature,
you will be able to assist the operator efficiently in making
changes within the display regarding setup, optimization,
and troubleshooting.
How it Works
Remote Display Access uses a communications
modem/controller (MTG), cellular antenna, and Ethernet
cable installed in a machine to send images of display
screen changes to a web browser.
Modular Telematics Gateway (MTG) hardware, a current
JDLink subscription that includes Remote Display Access,
and an Ethernet cable to connect the display to the MTG.
From a remote computer or a mobile device, operators
are able to log in to MyJohnDeere.com and select the
machine that they would like to view. Selecting Remote
Display Access for that piece of equipment provides
access to the display in the cab. The operator’s view of
the GreenStar 3 2630 display data will be sent through the
ethernet cable to the MTG, and from the MTG to the John
Deere communications network via the wireless cellular
data connection. The display information is then passed
along to the users computer through the internet. The
machine’s GreenStar display can then be viewed by the
remote operator, and cell phone or radio communication
can be made to make necessary adjustments to the
operator’s John Deere display.
Easy to use and understand
To use John Deere Remote Display Access, the
equipment must have a GreenStar 3 2630 display, JDLink

Wireless Data Transfer
Theory of Operation
NOTE: This functionality may not be available in all
countries at time of publication.
John Deere Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) is an optional
upgrade for a machine’s JDLink subscription. WDT
subscription upgrade is added to the machine’s MTG
using StellarSupport™. An Ethernet connection between
display and MTG is also required to utilize WDT.
WDT allows operators with JDLink™-enabled machines
to transfer agronomic data over cellular connection to and
from GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display without using a USB
drive. Setup and Prescription (Rx) files can be sent out to
display from web, mobile device, or Farm Management
Information Software, like Apex™. Setup, Documentation
and Harvest ID, Cotton files can be sent from display back
to web, mobile device, or Farm Management Information
Software. If files have been sent using WDT, they can
also be exported using a USB drive. If files are exported
using a USB drive before they are sent using WDT, files
are marked as already being exported and can no longer
be sent using WDT.
Files sent out to machine(s) are not automatically applied
to the display. Operator in the cab has to apply files to
utilize them on the display. MTG stores incoming files
(Setup and Rx). These files are available in the display
Transfer Log for 90 days without being applied or imported
on display. If they are not applied or imported within 90
days, they will no longer be available in transfer log and
will be deleted from MTG.
Files sent in from the machine will be available on
MyJohnDeere and (or) within Farm Management
Information Software if it is connected to the MyJohnDeere
account. Outgoing files (HID, Documentation, and Setup)
can be triggered to be sent on request or automatically
at the change of Client, Farm, or Field. If loss of power
or cellular signal interrupts file transfer, transfer process
continues once power or cellular signal is regained.
WDT cannot be utilized to transfer coverage maps
between machines, or to send software updates out to
display.

assignment depends on the input device and implement
configuration.
by the operator, the implement may store the mapping
as the new preferred assignment for this particular
configuration. If joystick and implement are disconnected

In this example the implement requests function 3 to
be mapped to input 2 and both functions 2 and 4 to be
mapped on input 3. Input 4 remains blank.
This is called a preferred assignment and is requested by

RS232 Harness kit
The RS232 Harness kit (PF90363) can be utilized to aid
installation when connecting third party controllers or a
GPS receiver to the GS3 display. This kit comes with
Instructions, Null Modem, Gender Changer and Harness.
The harness is approximately 1829 mm (6 ft) long and
consists of a DB9 connector at one end and 5 wires with
female AMP pins attached at the other. These AMP pins
will be inserted into the square 26 pin connector that
attaches to the back of GS3 displays from harnesses
PF80687 and PF80688.
If both a 3rd party controller and receiver will be connected
to the GS3 simultaneously, two PF90363 kits may be
required. The Original GreenStar Field Doc Connect
harness is only compatible with GS3 through the harness.
When using the original FDConnect harness, you must
choose Com port 1 in documentation setup.
Documentation with third party controllers
The list of GS3 supported controllers are the same as with
Original GreenStar Display and is available at your local
John Deere dealer.
• Flow Control none
• 1 or 5 Hz output rate (Recommend operation at 5 Hz.
Guidance requires 5 Hz.)
Without these messages, receiver will not function with
GreenStar application. From the receiver manufacturer's
wiring diagram, determine which wires from the receiver
are the signal transmit and signal ground. Verify that
Receiver Transmit connects to Pin 3 of the DB9 connector
and receiver ground connects to pin 5 of the DB9. Look at
the front face of the connector to see the pinout number
designation.
Pinout number are located on the back side of the
connector (where the wires are inserted).

Rawson or New Leader Controller: verify that the settings
under the “Controller” button of the GS3 display match the
information on the controller (i.e. Mid Point on the GS3
Display should be the same value as on the Rawson or
New Leader controller). GS3 will control only one channel
of Rawson controller for use with prescriptions.
NOTE: Set Rawson or New Leader controller to GPS

Data Management
Theory of Operation
Data and setup information can be transferred to and from
another GS3 2630 display or compatible desktop software
using a USB flash drive. It is also important to backup
your data to a USB flash drive periodically.
PC12690 —UN—16JUL10
NOTE: Data can be transferred to Apex and several
3rd party desktop applications.
Data and setup information are imported or exported as a
Data Profile. Only Global prescription maps and shapefile
prescriptions can be imported individually. Multiple
Profiles from one or more displays can be stored on one
USB flash drive IF they are given different names.
See the Data Type Details table to understand the types
of data included in setup information versus maps and
Documentation.
The internal memory is intended to have enough capacity
to store all the data from a machine per season (e.g.
planting or harvest). A message will appear when 90%
of the memory is used. Data should be Exported and
deleted before memory used exceeds 90%.

Data Management
Example 1 – Importing and Exporting
Documentation Data
Operator 1 records Flags in a field as he is planting,
so those areas can be sprayed for weeds. Currently,
Operator 2 is spraying in a different field. Both machines
have GS3 2630 displays. Below is one method to properly
manage the data on both displays:
Prior to the season:
1. Using Apex the Farm Manager saved the Machine
and Implement settings for all of his equipment along
with field and product setup data to a USB drive with
the Profile name [2011.4.15 Setup].
2. Operators 1 and 2 both Imported this Profile into their
displays.
Current day:
1. Operator 1 finishes planting the field, Exports the data
from his display to the USB drive, naming the Profile
[2011.5.1 Planting].
2. The same day, Operator 2 receives the USB drive
from Operator 1 and first Exports the data from his
GS3 2630 on the sprayer, so that no data is lost when
he Imports the planter data. He Exports to the same
USB drive, using a different Profile name [2011.5.1
4730 Sprayer]. Now there are now 3 Profiles in the
GS3_2630 folder on the USB drive.
3. Operator 2 then Imports the Profile [2011.5.1 Planting].
He verifies the Machine and Implement settings for his
sprayer and sprays the flagged areas in the field.
4. Operator 2 then Exports the data to the same Profile
name [2011.5.1 Planting]. This allows the Export to go
faster and no data is lost.
Question — At this point will the As-applied rate maps
from the first fields that Operator 2 was spraying be in
the Profile [2011.5.1 Planting] on the USB drive?
Answer — Yes, because when Operator 2 Imported
[2011.5.1 Planting], the As-applied maps on the display
were NOT overwritten. When he Exported in Step 4,
all of the As-applied maps in the display were saved to
the Profile [2011.5.1 Planting] on the USB drive.
See the Data Type Details table to understand what
data is overwritten during Import and Export.
5. Operator 2 then Imports his previous Profile [2011.5.1
4730 Sprayer] back into his display, so that he has the
setup data and maps from the fields he was previously
spraying.
6. Later, the Farm Manager unloads the data from
the USB drive to Apex. Apex automatically finds
setup information and data from all 3 Profiles. When
files have duplicate names, the files that were most
recently changed will be Unloaded to Apex.
CZ76372,00002DB -19-19APR11-1/1
Example 2 – Backup Documentation Data
A farmer has purchased a GS3 2630 display to replace his
GS2 2600 display. He plans to use the GS3 2630 in both
his planter and combine. He wants to backup his data from
the display frequently and plans to give the data to his crop
consultant at the end of planting and harvest. He does not
plan to Import any data to his display during the season.
Below is one method to properly manage the data:
Prior to the season:
1. The Farmer unloads the data from his GS2 2600
compact flash card to Apex.
2. He saves all necessary setup information and
guidance lines for planting from Apex to a USB drive,
naming the Profile [Planting 2011].
3. He Imports the Profile [Planting 2011] into his new
GS3 2630.
Yield map log files that are already in the Profile on
the USB drive are not exported again. In this case,
the farmer is NOT importing data, so he is NOT
managing multiple Profiles and the risk of overwriting
setup information or data unintentionally is low.
After the Planting Season:
1. The Farmer gives the USB drive to his crop consultant,
who copies the Profile [Planting 2011] and gives the
USB drive back to the farmer.
2. The Farmer deletes Documentation Data Only and
Clears Maps from the displays internal memory, so
that Export times are faster during harvest. Setup
information, guidance lines, and boundaries remain
on the display.
See the Data Type Details table to determine what data
will be deleted for each option.
During to the Planting Season:
During Harvest Season:
1. At the end of each day during planting, the farmer
Exports data to the same profile [Planting 2011].
1. At the end of each day during harvest, the farmer
Exports data to the same Profile, named [Harvest
2011]. This way the [Planting 2011] Profile remains
on the USB as a backup.
NOTE: Export takes less time when exporting repeatedly
to the same Profile because the As-applied and

Example 3 – Transferring Guidance Lines
Operators 1 and 2 are both planting in the same field
with 12 and 24 row planters respectively and would like
to operate on the same guidance tracks. Both machines
have GS3 2630 displays. Below is one method to properly
manage the data on both displays:
1. Operator 1 enters the field first and creates a straight
track, naming it [Planter N-S 2011].
2. After 1 pass, Operator 1 Exports the data from his
display to a USB drive, naming the Profile [2011.5.3
Planter 12 row].
3. Operator 2 is given the USB drive and first Exports
the data from his display, so that no data is lost when
he Imports the Profile from Operator 1. He Exports to
the same USB drive, using a different Profile name
[2011.5.3 Planter 24 row]. Now there are now 2
Profiles in the GS3_2630 folder on the USB drive.
4. Operator 2 then Imports the Profile [2011.5.3 Planter
12 row]. He needs to enter the Machine and
Implement settings for his planter because they were
not entered previously into that Profile. He then
selects the Guidance line [Planter N-S 2011] and any
other necessary setup information.
Question — At this point, are any of the guidance lines
that Operator 2 created previously still on his display?
Answer — No, those lines were overwritten when
he Imported the Profile from Operator 1, but they are
saved on the USB drive in Profile [2011.5.3 Planter
24 row].
5. Two days later, Operator 2 wants to save a backup of
the data on his display. He Exports data to the same
USB, giving the Profile a different name that he can
remember [2011.5.5 Planter 24 row] to clearly indicate
where the data is from and ensure that no data is
overwritten.
CZ76372,00002DD -19-19APR11-1/1
Example 4 – Importing Global Prescriptions
and Shapefiles
A farmer is using a GS3 2630 display for planting. He
has 3 different crop consultants bringing him prescription
Shapefiles at different dates throughout planting season.
Below is one method to properly manage the data:
NOTE: The Import Global Prescriptions and
Shapefile Data option only imports Global
and Shapefile prescriptions.
1. The farmer leaves a USB drive in the tractor for the
consultants.
2. He instructs the consultants to save the prescription
Shapefiles to that USB drive. That way, the Shapefiles
from all 3 consultants will be on the USB drive and
they will all be Imported to the display.
3. The farmer imports the prescription files to the display.
NOTE: Overwriting Shapefiles is optional, and
the displayed prescription Shapefile list can
be cleaned up by the farmer before being
imported from the USB drive.
BA31779,00003D5 -19-27MAR12-1/1
Example 5 – Modifying a Profile
An operator begins planting a field and then determines
that he wants to use a different Prescription (Rx) map.
He has the new Rx map in Apex, but he is using Section
Control and wants to continue using the same coverage
and Section Control maps to complete the field. Below is
one method to properly manage the data:
1. The operator Exports Data naming the Profile
[2011.5.3 Planter 24 row].
2. The operator then saves the Rx map from Apex to the
same Profile [2011.5.3 Planter 24 row]. The coverage
and Section Control maps remain in that Profile on
the USB drive.
3. The operator then Imports the same Profile [2011.5.3
Planter 24 row] back into his display.
IMPORTANT: The operator did NOT continue planting
during the time that he Exported and Imported
data. If he had, then the data he recorded during
that time would have been lost during the Import.

Frequently Asked Questions
• Q: When I try to record in GreenStar 3, I get the
message, Implement Recording Not Allowed. What do I
need to do to fix this?
A: Verify you have the correct Client, Farm, Field
and Task set up under GS3 button (G). Then, make
sure you have an operation setup in button (I). If you
have Tillage, Product Application, or Other operation
defined, verify you only have one operation set up. If
running a Planting or Seeding operation, it is possible
to set up a Product Application operation as well. If
the error message remains, select button (C) and
select Recording from the drop-down menu. This is a
Recording Diagnostics page and will give you an idea
of why the system will not allow recording.
A: Verify that both the display and desktop
software have the latest software versions. Go to
StellarSupport.com to determine the latest versions
for the display and Apex. If using Apex, make sure to
have the proper items check marked (e.g. Enterprise,
Products, Resources, etc.) when saving data to the
USB drive. Then select the correct drive letter for the
USB drive by the GS3 2630 display option.
• Q: My AutoTrac Universal unit will not activate when I
get a StarFire signal in the mornings. Do I have to drive
around for a while before the resume switch engages
AutoTrac Universal?
• Q: I'm attempting to dial-in my AutoTrac Universal
system and don't understand what each sensitivity is for.
A: Refer to the AutoTrac Universal Quick Reference
Guide that came with your AutoTrac Universal System,
or print it off from the www.StellarSupport.com website.
It defines these and other terms:
A: ATU relies solely on the StarFire Receiver to obtain
information about the direction you are traveling.
Therefore, if the signal has been acquired, but no
vehicle movement has taken place, the Direction under
Info, AutoTrac will say unknown. Watch this Direction
while driving forward in a gentle curve. As soon as it
changes from Unknown to Forward the ATU unit will
operate properly when you activate AutoTrac.
• Q: What is the proper way to cycle power on my
GreenStar 3 display?
Steer speed is how fast the ATU wheel turns.
Acquire sensitivity is how aggressively the unit drives
to the line.
Line Sensitivity Tracking is used to keep the lateral
error low. If your machine gets offline up to a foot, the
Tracking Sensitivity may be set too low.
Line Sensitivity Heading adjusts how much the unit
corrects for heading error. If you see a lot of left and right
steering, the Heading Sensitivity may be set too high.
Each sensitivity has an optimum value that works best
for the specific vehicle platform you are using. Refer
to www.StellarSupport.com for recommended starting
points for your vehicle platform.
• Q: I would like to use the coverage map feature in
GreenStar 3. How do I properly set this up?
A: Select GS3 button (A) and select Map Settings.
Then select the drop-down menu for Foreground and
select Coverage. This selection will paint the map a
light blue color. If you are seeding or applying chemical,
you can select either Seed Rate 1 or Product Rate 1
as Foreground. Either of these selections will color
the map based on a legend that corresponds with the
amount of seed or product applied.
• Q: My GreenStar 3 does not recognize setup data
saved from Apex or other compatible desktop software.
What do I need to do to get this working properly?
A: Turn the key off, the screen will go dark and the
green LED light in the bottom right corner will go out.
After the LED light is off, the system may be powered
back on. If the GS3 has been powered off for less than
24 hours, it will power right up to the last screen used. If
it has been more than 24 hours, you will see the John
Deere logo as well as a progress indicator at startup.
• Q: I want to use a prescription in my new GreenStar 3
system and I want to be able to see the as-applied map
over the top of my anhydrous prescription layer. How
do I set this up?
A: Save the prescription to your USB drive in Apex
or other compatible desktop software. Select GS3
button (A), and select Map Settings at the bottom of the
page. Select the prescription as the background layer.
Choose Product Rate 1 that comes from your approved
controller as the foreground layer. Then configure your
homepage with the desired information.
• Q: What causes the StarFire receiver signal strength
bar on my GS3 homepage to turn orange and display
an alert symbol?
A: If the number of satellites in a solution drops to six or
below, you are receiving a marginal signal which results
in an orange bar and an alert sign. If there are less than
five satellites in a solution, the bar will be red, indicating
no GPS signal. For the bar to be green, there must be
at least seven satellites in a solution.
• Q: Why do I get message saying, Recording is Not
NOTE: Apex is not available in all EAME countries.
Allowed when I try to turn GS3 Recording on even
though my signal strength is good?

Troubleshooting and Diagnostics
A: This is a common error if multiple recording
operations have been selected. Go to the GS3 menu
and select GreenStar 3 Pro. Select button (I) to enter
the GS3 Documentation screen, and make sure there
are no duplicate operation tabs displayed at the top of
the screen. If there are duplicates, select the operation
that does not belong and select the “Remove” button.
• Q: I used Section Control on my GS3 System on a field
that I want to reapply, but the system shows the field as
already covered and won't allow me to spray it again.
A: You need to create a new task so that same field
will appear as a completely separate layer. The GS3
coverage map will then be blank, and you'll be allowed
to spray the field again.
• Q: What is Shading?
• Q: I get the error message Implement Recording not
allowed on my GreenStar 3 Display. What should I do
about it?
A: Check Diagnostics page (C) from the GreenStar 3
Pro Menu and change the view box from Deere GPS
to Recording. This should tell you what recording was
stopped, and you can make the necessary adjustments.
• Q: When I spray or plant using both the Original and
GS3 Displays, I get error message "ID 234" or "Display
address claim conflict." What does this mean and what
should I do?
A: Both displays are trying to run as the primary
display. If the GS3 is the actual primary display, power
down and unplug it, then power up again with only the
Original GreenStar Display plugged in. Go to SETUP
> ORIGINAL GREENSTAR MONITOR > DISPLAY
ADDRESS and set it as the primary. Now plug in the
GS3 Display with the power still running on the Original
display. If you have two Original GreenStar displays,
hook them up to the primary connections and turn on
the power. Go to SETUP > ORIGINAL GREENSTAR
MONITOR and select line D, so it shows as primary.
Turn off the power, unhook the primary processor
and display, and hookup the secondary display to the
auxiliary connections. Power up and go to SETUP >
ORIGINAL GREENSTAR MONITOR and select line
D to set to Aux 1. Now power down and hook up the
processor, primary display, and secondary display to
the correct connections. Finally, power up once more.
You may have to run Standard Run Page Layout from
the Setup menu after you are set up.
• Q: I lost the StarFire iTC button from the GS3 Main
Menu. How can I get it back?
A: Go to MENU > MESSAGE CENTER > button (A),
highlight GPS Receiver, select Reprogram Device and
select current software (3.70E). Contact your dealer
if problem persists.
A: Shading occurs when obstacles such as trees,
buildings or other solid objects block all or part of a
satellite(s) signal. GPS satellites emit two frequencies,
L1 and L2. The L2 frequency is weaker than L1, and
thin objects, like tree leaves, will block L2 easily where
the L1 signal will go right through. To run AutoTrac,
the StarFire requires a 5 satellites solution with full
communication with the both the L1 and L2 frequencies
from each satellite.
• Q: What is Optimize Shading?
A: The Optimize Shading feature, available with
StarFire iTC software versions 3.01K and newer,
allows you to continue using AutoTrac when SF1/
SF2 reception is degraded due to shading. Optimize
Shading allows a minimum of 4 satellites in solution with
only L1 communication to maintain running AutoTrac.
Optimize Shading is only available with SF1 and SF2
on iTC receivers, and will not function with RTK or Gen
2 receivers. When using RTK, the Optimize Shading
checkbox is still displayed, but it has no affect on the
receiver. Optimize Shading can be used with both
Original and GS3 displays.
• Q: Does Optimize Shading Affect AutoTrac Accuracy?
A: Although Optimize Shading allows the user to
continue using AutoTrac, it is operating on a degraded
signal level and the operator can expect the system
to be less accurate. Line jumps and shifts may be
more prevalent. Optimize Shading does not affect GPS
accuracy when all of the L1 and L2 frequencies are
available to the receiver. It merely allows AutoTrac to
stay activated when GPS signal is degraded. If the
receiver has full signal, Optimize Shading does not
affect accuracy.
• Q: Should I Leave Optimize Shading on All the Time?
• Q: Why did my AutoTrac options disappear from my
GS3 Display?
A: First, check the GPS status to see if you are receiving
signal, and ensure the Terrain Compensation Module
is on and calibrated. You can also check the button (F)
from the GreenStar 3 Pro Menu to see if the AutoTrac
line shows as active. If not, call 1-888-953-3373 to
activate it.
A: Under most circumstances, Optimize Shading should
be turned off. It should only be used in situations where
the operator would like to continue running AutoTrac if
a reduction in signal quality is expected and optimum
AutoTrac accuracy is crucial. Optimize Shading should
be turned off if during a critical operation whereby it
would be preferable for AutoTrac to deactivate during
signal degradation than to continue running AutoTrac
with reduced accuracy.

Troubleshooting and Diagnostics
• Q: Does Optimize Shading Affect Documentation,
Coverage Mapping or Section Control?
A: Having Optimize Shading checked will have no
effect on Documentation, Coverage or Section Control
if degraded signal due to shading is encountered.
Documentation, Coverage and Section Control require
a minimum of only 3D/ RTG to operate.
• Q: Can I run over my previously recorded adaptive
curve lines?
A: Yes, with a feature within adaptive curves called
Repeat Mode which allows you to repeat over previously
recorded adaptive curve lines. This is located by going
to GS3 Pro, Guidance (B), Guidance Settings Tab, and
selecting the Change button (next to the label Curve
Track Settings). In here, there will a check box to turn
on Repeat Mode.
• Q: How do I remove unused iTEC Pro sequences?
A: Sequences are stored in the internal memory and
cannot be deleted. Individual sequences cannot be
removed, but sequences can have the functions edited
or removed.
NOTE: If contents of the display are deleted, iTEC
sequences will also be deleted.
• Q: What if I make a mistake naming an iTEC sequence,
A: Currently we cannot edit the names of sequences
after they have been accepted. If you make a mistake
in renaming the sequence, (e.g 1770 Exterior Raise vs.
1770 Extrior Raise), there are a few options:
a. Continue to setup the sequence, ignoring the error.
b. Create a new sequence with the correct name.
c. Start over with a blank USB drive. In this instance, it
will be necessary to get all desired setup data from at
least Apex version 2.6 back on the USB drive.
• Q: With multiple iTEC Pro sequences, how should I
keep these organized?
A: It is important to properly name the sequences.
“Raise” and “lower” will likely be different for the interior
passable and headland boundaries, as well as for
different implements and tasks.
• Q: Why does my AutoTrac Universal (ATU) deactivate
for no apparent reason?
A: When the ATU deactivates, a Stop Code is generated
and indicates why AutoTrac deactivated. On an Original
GreenStar Display, you will find the Stop Code by going
to INFO > AUTOTRAC. On a GS3, the stop code will be
displayed in the top left corner of the GS3 Pro Guidance
Screen or in GS3 Pro AutoTrac Universal Diagnostics.
Explanation of the stop code can be found in ATU Quick
Reference Guide.
