Expect machine productivity gains, along with increased operator confidence, thanks to a simple, customizable interface. The improved design of the Generation 4 CommandCenter also aids in an optimal operating experience and maximizes uptime.
Some of the easy-to-use benefits of the Generation 4 CommandCenter include:
  • Custom-defined views
  • Intelligent warnings
  • Context-based help
  • Ability to import, export, and delete files
Producers can use a variety of implements with the Generation 4 CommandCenter as it is Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) ISOBUS compliant for manual control of IOSBUS implements (UT) as well as automatic section control (TC SC) and documentation in ISOXML Format (TC-Basic).

Layout manager module build

Layout manager module build

The Generation 4 CommandCenter features a modular-designed layout manager, so operators can easily create the page views that meet their needs. From the factory, machines are equipped with default run pages. An unlimited number of run pages can be added to the Generation 4 CommandCenter based on operator preference or operational needs. Toggling between run pages is as easy as swiping the screen or using the arrow buttons on the top right portion of the title bar.
Users and access
Users and access allow the owner or manager to lock out certain functions to prevent operators from accessing or changing settings. Lock-out functions are managed with a defined four-digit code.
Lock-out features are available for:
  • Factory data reset
  • Hitch
  • Hydraulic
  • Transmission
  • Power take-off (PTO) FieldCruise™ system
  • Display
  • Machine monitor
On-screen help and diagnostic text
There are a number of different ways to get meaningful on-screen help when navigating the Generation 4 CommandCenter. Operators can find the help icon on the shortcut bar on the bottom of every page. This icon gives detailed information on everything from tractor operation to application information. Simply select the help icon and navigate to the information section that is needed.

Machine monitor

Machine monitor page

The machine monitor application provides the operator instantaneous readings about the status or condition of the machine. Values shown in the machine monitor vary by application, but typically include parameters like engine speed, coolant temperature, and ground speed. The machine monitor supports run page modules in the layout manager, allowing the operator to populate specific machine parameters directly to a run page.
NOTE: The machine monitor application replaces part of the universal performance monitor in previous machines.
Work monitor

Work monitor page

The work monitor application displays the performance information about the task being performed by the machine. The operator is shown averages, totals, and productivity of the machine, such as area worked, average working speed, and fuel usage. The values of the work monitor can be reset by the operator at any time. Specific values of the work monitor can be configured by the operator to be shown on a run page.
NOTE: The work monitor application replaces part of the Universal Performance Monitor in previous machines.
Work setup application
Work setup places the settings needed to properly setup AutoTrac, documentation, and Section Control in a single location.
Settings include:
  • Client, farm, and field
  • Crop type
  • Machine and implement dimensions
  • Variety/hybrid and planting/ seeding rates
  • Variable rate prescriptions
  • Product and application rates
  • Application rates through the implement screens
Work setup can be quickly accessed from a shortcut key or the display menu, allowing operators and managers to quickly review display and machine settings to ensure a job is completed properly.

Video capability
Tractors with a 4100 CommandCenter are equipped with one video input and the 4600 CommandCenter has four video inputs. The operator has the ability to set a variety of triggers, including reverse, PTO, hitch, and selective control valve (SCV) levers to activate the camera. Once triggered the image will then appear on the CommandCenter display. The camera (video observation system) is available through JD Parts and Ag and Industrial (A and I) Products.
NOTE: 6R Tractors equipped with a 4600 CommandCenter have two video inputs.
Document field boundaries
Manually drive field boundaries with the Generation 4 CommandCenter or import existing boundary information from GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 or John Deere Operations Center. Gen 4 documentation data can be used to create boundaries from coverage within the John Deere Operations Center.
The display uses a streamlined boundary creation process that generates exterior and interior field boundaries from coverage, simplifying the process and reducing steps. Operators can delete interior boundaries without impacting the exterior boundary or headlands. In addition, operators can chose to turn boundaries off for section control, while using them for field locator and documentation.
Headland boundaries can also quickly be generated by simply entering a distance or the number of passes from exterior boundary.

Boundaries can be imported from the following sources:
  • John Deere Operations Center
  • Directly from a GS3 2630 Display or another Gen 4 Display
  • APEX™ software or another farm management information system (FMIS) system that exports in GS3 2630 Display format

Generation 4 CommandCenter display and GreenStar displays comparison and compatibility
Generation 4 CommandCenter works in dual-display mode with GS3 2630 Display, GS2 1800 Display, and GS2 2600 Display. For complete feature comparison and dual display compatibility information, please see the display comparison chart and GS3 and AMS display compatibility chart.
Generation 4 CommandCenter may be configured to run with the following John Deere displays connected at the cornerpost:
  • GS2 1800 Display
  • GS2 2600 Display
  • GS3 2630 Display
  • 4640 Universal Display
All precision activations purchased on GS2 or GS3 Display are defaulted to run on the cornerpost display while in dual display mode. Activations cannot be shared between GS2 or GS3 Displays and the Generation 4 CommandCenter. The second display must have its own activations to run AMS applications. Remote Display Access (RDA) can be used on either GS3 2630 Display or Generation 4 CommandCenter in the same session.
Precision ag applications, such as AutoTrac™ assisted steering system, documentation, and section control cannot run on both displays at the same time. When a cornerpost display is installed, precision ag applications will be available on the cornerpost display and default to disabled on Gen 4 CommandCenter. For full dual display compatibility reference the Dual Display – GreenStar display and Generation 4 CommandCenter configuration table.
Vehicle applications will always be located on the Gen 4 CommandCenter.
