John Deere StarFire owners are being reminded of an update the equipment's software.

Staff writer

The StarFire 20-2 software update needed to be performed by users by 1 February. Owners that have not installed the update may be having running issues with their StarFire 3000 and 6000 series receivers.

Dealers have noted that StarFire iTC and John Deere Gen 2 receivers will not be capable of performing the AutoTrac functionality in 2021. These receivers will still be able to bring in WAAS signals, which may allow some yield documentation and light bar functions, however AutoTrac will not work on this signal.

These receivers can be upgraded to either a StarFire 3000 or StarFire 6000 receiver to continue using the John Deere AutoTrac functionality.

More information on the 20-2 update can be found at your nearest John Deere dealer or at www.StellarSupport.com
