Unlock the precision execution capabilities of 4600 CommandCenter™ Display with the CommandCenter Premium activation

Producers ready to take the next step toward precise job execution in their precision ag journey are ready for the CommandCenter Premium Activation. The bundle includes a set of John Deere precision ag applications to help them do more work with more precision and to share information wirelessly between machines and with the John Deere Operations Center.

The CommandCenter Premium activation gathers four precision ag applications into a single orderable product for the 4600 CommandCenter Display with options to upgrade from other activation levels. This approach delivers more total customer value in a way that allows producers to use the applications they want throughout the crop production cycle without the worry and expense of licensing individual precision ag applications. It all begins with better planter control with Section Control and more efficient nutrient and crop protection application with AutoTrac™ RowSense™. Finish the crop season at harvest by being able to easily follow standing crop rows with RowSense in the combine all while sharing information between machines working in the same field with In-Field Data Sharing.

With the CommandCenter Premium 3.0 Activation, operators have access to the following applications:

  • Section Control
  • Data Sync
  • AutoTrac RowSense
  • In-Field Data Sharing


CommandCenter Premium 3.0 Activation is a non-transferrable display activation compatible with any John Deere machine equipped with a 4600 CommandCenter Display and v2 server. Functionality is dependent on machine configuration and may require additional hardware. Data created with a Gen 4 display is only compatible with John Deere Operations Center and can be transferred either wirelessly or via a USB drive with 4- to 32-GB capacity.

Reduce the risk of data loss by wirelessly sending and receiving data

Gen 4 applications and subscriptions allow data to be transferred from the display to the John Deere Operations Center for job reporting and analysis using Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) or Data Sync.

  • With WDT, you can manually send data to the John Deere Operations Center for review.
  • Data Sync is enabled with purchase of the Premium or Automation Activation/Subscription, automatically sending your data to the Operations Center every 30 seconds, avoiding the need for manually exporting the data.  


Wirelessly sending data helps you save time and money while increasing productivity. Wirelessly transfer setup, prescription, and documentation files securely between office, mobile devices, and 4640/4240 Universal Display or 4600/4200 CommandCenter™ Display, eliminating the need for USB transfer. This increases your uptime and productivity, reduces the risk of data loss, and enables easy data sharing and more timely decision making.

Through the John Deere Operations Center, you are in control and can easily share files with a John Deere dealer and other trusted advisers.

NOTE: For users in areas of poor cellular coverage, data is able to be exported using a USB flash drive.

Reduce skips and overlaps with Gen 4 Section Control

John Deere Gen 4 Section Control switches boom sections on or off, reducing overlap and improving product placement.

Key features of John Deere Gen 4 Section Control include:

  • Automatic control of sprayer sections when passing across:
    • Previous coverage
    • Exterior and interior boundaries
    • Established headlands (buffer zones)
  • Improve efficiency by reducing overlap, skips, input costs, and operator stress
  • Easier setup with distance-based tuning


John Deere Gen 4 Section Control is available as part of the CommandCenter™ Premium application and requires a StarFire™ position receiver.

Reduce operator stress while following crop rows with AutoTrac™ Vision and RowSense™

AutoTrac RowSense functionality has revolutionized the ability to use AutoTrac for post-emergence applications in 76.2- to 101.6-cm (30- to 40-in.) row crops. Operators have the ability to use AutoTrac RowSense in later-season corn.

Post-emergence operations such as spraying fungicide in July or harvesting corn in October can be stressful for operators. On top of steering the machine, an operator is required to monitor several other areas such as spray rates, ground terrain, grain or forage quality, or managing tender trucks and grain carts. Operating at night, in windy conditions, or while harvesting lodged corn can add even more stress for the operator.

A study using advanced, eye-tracking glasses determined where an operator’s attention is focused while operating a sprayer through tall, standing corn. Without AutoTrac RowSense or Vision, the operator spent about 82.5 percent of the time looking forward. When AutoTrac RowSense or Vision was utilized, the same operators only spent 70 percent of the time looking forward and more time watching sprayer booms and monitoring machine performance on the vehicle display. AutoTrac RowSense focuses on steering so the operator can focus on other value-added tasks.

Use equipment and people even better with In-Field Data Sharing

Using Gen 4 In-Field Data Sharing, up to six tractors, sprayers, nutrient applicators, or combines can share as applied maps and guidance lines to reduce overlap, improve product placement, and monitor job quality in other machines. Equipment can work together at the same time or use maps created earlier by another machine to increase efficiency.

Using a streamlined setup process, In-Field Data Sharing matches maps and guidance lines together based on the information selected in the Work Setup screen, the same information is needed to document an operation. Setup items can be sent to the display from Operations Center for selection to make setup even easier.

The information needed depends on the operation:

  • Planting and seeding: Client, Farm, Field, and Crop
  • Product application: Client, Farm, Field, and Product or Tank Mix
  • Harvest: Client, Farm, Field, and Crop


Generation 4 Display compatibility

This document lists all the compatible equipment approved with the software update 19-2 release, and is subject to change with newer software updates. To ensure complete and proper compatibility, the most current version of implement control unit software, Generation 4 Display software, or compatible farm management information software (FMIS) should be used. Non-current software versions will require an update before support can be provided. Unapproved software version configurations will not be supported.

The software update 19-2 release is only compatible with 4600 CommandCenter™ v2 processors. Software update 17-2 is the last release that was compatible with 4600 v1 processors.

Server serial numbers are as follows:

  • v1 = RWG prefix
