Mandatory StarFire Software Update

Software update 20-2

As John Deere continues to develop new technology, StarFire Network changes were necessary to support the addition of new satellite constellations and additional enhancements.  This required the introduction of a new signal.

StarFire 6000 and StarFire 3000 receivers must be updated to the 20-2 software to continue to continue operating on the new signal.  Update all receivers prior to February 1, 2021 to avoid any interruption in functions.

StarFire iTC receivers will not function on the new signal beginning Febrary 1, 2021 but will continue operate in WAAS, EGNOS, or Non-Diff (depending on location) until approximately 2026.

StarFire 6000 New Features with Software Update 20-2

  • Continuous Data Logging
  • New RTK-X Status Added
  • Improved Shared Signal and Machine Sync Compatibility
