JDLink Ultimate

The optional GreenStar™ JDLink System from Ag Management Solutions (AMS), including Select and Ultimate versions, allows operators to optimize the true performance capabilities of their 8R and 8RT Series Tractors.  Optimziation occurs by continuously collecting and transmitting machine data for machine management purposes via mobile phone technology. In collecting operational information, the system enables the preventive maintenance and remote diagnostics of tractors, as well as the tracking of machines working on multiple work sites.
 
Information collected by JDLink includes location, machine hours, oil temperature, idle time, maintenance intervals, and a variety of other machine settings. The data collected by JDLink is communicated to a central John Deere server and made available to registered users via a password-secured JDLink Web site or through e-mail, fax, or SMS messaging. Machine owners can then access valuable equipment information quickly and efficiently to optimize machine operations before problems are realized by the current operator.  There is a current JDLink Ultimate Promotion featuring a one-year free subscription with the purchase of an 8R or 8RT Series Tractor.
 
For further information on the JDLink system and the appropriate tractor bundles required for a fully-functional JDLink system, please refer to the AMS Web site.
 
NOTE: JDLink is not available in all geographic regions.
Service ADVISOR

Service ADVISOR diagnostics greatly assist in reducing service costs and downtime.  It allows the John Deere service technician to readily extract vital information about tractor malfunctions through the Service ADVISOR data port. Diagnostic codes and CAN bus statistics stored by the tractor and visible in the CommandCenter™ are used by service technicians to isolate, identify, and resolve problems.
 
Diagnostics and CAN bus statistics are not normally used by the operator. Access and use of trouble codes should only be done by a qualified, factory-trained John Deere service technician.

Service ADVISOR remote
 
Service ADVISOR Remote takes the machine connectivity of JDLink and takes it one step further. With Service ADVISOR Remote, machines can be diagnosed remotely saving the cost of a field service call. For example, diagnostic trouble codes can be reset and software updates can be uploaded remotely.
