Setting and optimisation of John Deere combines has just got easier. The new GoHarvest mobile phone app announced at Agritechnica 2013 in Hanover, Germany, is now available as a free download for smartphones and tablets using both the Android and iOS operating systems.
Following the launch of the JDLink mobile app last year, this latest application allows operators to optimise their combine easily and always have the recommended John Deere settings to hand. In addition to the combine settings, the app also allows the user to improve performance by focusing on specific machine areas and evaluating losses.
The operator simply chooses the combine model – W, T or S-Series – and crop type. GoHarvest then suggests initial settings for the selected crop both inside the cab and around the machine using a series of straightforward menus, tips and yes/no options, illustrated by clear photographs and diagrams.
The app also features a notes section, a help page and a link to John Deere’s online dealer locator. In addition, GoHarvest is easy to use in the field for changing and recording the combine settings as harvesting conditions change.
GoHarvest is available in seven languages (English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish) from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
