The GreenStar 3 2630 Display also allows operators to set up multiple home pages and navigate to each home page easily and efficiently, all while other applications are in use. The GreenStar 3 2630 Display is specifically designed for producers who desire maximum efficiency, productivity, and premium features outlined below.
Remote Display Access (RDA)
As the number of precision ag products continues to increase and more technology becomes integrated into ag equipment, along with varying operator skills in the cab, it is necessary for producers to be able to remotely manage operations and dealers to be able to provide remote support.
From an internet-connected device, users with RDA and JDLink™ communication services can help operators using the GreenStar 3 2630 Display.
From an internet-connected device, users with RDA can view the operator’s GreenStar 3 2630 Display screen. This functionality enables the RDA user to identify a problem and help the operator navigate through the steps needed to resolve the issue.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display can support up to three video inputs for those who want more visibility when operating large machinery. Utilizing an Ethernet connection limits capacity to a single video input. Video can be viewed while operating machinery directly on the GreenStar 3 2630 Display.
The video images can be included in a loop that automatically cycles through each video input. Video can also be set as a quarter of a home page screen.
The GreenStar 3 2630 is compatible with the following camera signal types:
- National Television System Committee (NTSC)
NTSC is the North American standard for all cameras.
The GreenStar 3 2630 is an ISOBUS virtual terminal 3 (VT3) capable display. ISOBUS VT3 allows the display to control ISOBUS-compatible implements and controllers. This compatibility allows the GreenStar 3 2630 Display to be used in a variety of applications and, in many cases, reduces the number of displays in the cab.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display can also manage variable-rate applications and section control with non-John Deere implements, thanks to its ISOBUS compatibility.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display provides the same screen size and it features:
- A 50 percent smaller bezel allowing for better visibility in the cab
- A 30 percent brighter screen
- The GreenStar 3 2630 Display has an easy-to-find storage device, making it simple to transfer information like prescriptions to the display or pulling documented maps from the display to use in APEX™ farm management software.
Most USB memory storage devices are compatible with John Deere displays. Below are the USB flash drive requirements:
- Format - Windows® FAT or FAT32 system
- Capacity - No specific limits to the memory capacity of the drive
- Connectivity - USB 2.0
- Maximum dimensions - 9.2-mm thick by 21.7-mm (0.36-in. by 0.85-in.) wide
- Orderable – From a John Deere dealer
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display has:
- RAM memory that allows the display to refresh quickly when multiple applications are in use.
- Flash memory, or internal memory, eliminating the need for flash drives on the display.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display has a fast, powerful processor that helps reduce display lockups.
Access manager can be used to prevent operators from changing settings in the field by locking specific settings. These settings are determined by the producer and can be password protected. Access manager allows for less operator error while being more productive in the field.
Layout manager allows operators to configure home pages on the GreenStar 3 2630 Display in the format desired, displaying the information that is essential to them. Layout manager also allows operators to page through other screens by simply selecting the home page icon.
Standby mode allows operators to dim the display while driving between fields or at night. The standby softkey is displayed when the menu is selected.
Standby mode also eliminates non-critical alarms and other warnings that appear on screen while in transport, but still alerts operators of any critical warning.
Operators can exit standby mode by simply touching the screen.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display automatically recognizes what field it is in during machine startup to ensure data is being documented to the correct location.
The field locator notifies operators when they have left the field and helps operators select the correct field by using global positioning system (GPS) data. Touching the map screen allows operators to search for a new field.
Machine and Implement Control
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display allows machine and implement control by interfacing with John Deere controllers. SprayStar™ system, SpreadStar™ system, SeedStar™ system, GreenStar Rate Controller, and third-party controllers can all interface with the GS3 2630 Display.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display along with these controllers can control seeding and application rates, as well as document those rates, all while providing a coverage map showing the area applied. All data is collected and can later be unloaded in APEX, where it can be shown in the form of maps and reports.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display is capable of transferring data multiple ways. Utilize Wireless Data Transfer (WDT) to automatically send data to the John Deere Operations Center or utilize a USB to manually move data between displays. Guidance lines can be transferred between GreenStar 3 2630 Displays via USB without the need to import the setup profile through APEX. Simply export the profile with desired guidance lines from one GreenStar 3 2630 Display to a USB. Then insert the USB into a different GreenStar 3 2630 Display to select and import the desired guidance lines.

Manage variable-rate applications and prescriptions
With growing costs of seed, fertilizers, and agrochemicals, the interest in site-specific application is rising tremendously. The GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display takes variable-rate application to the next level with a large color display for viewing and creating maps. The GreenStar 3 2630 Display also works with approved (ISOBUS-) rate controllers to enhance variable-rate application.
Variable rate technology allows input application rates to be varied across fields to specifically manage field variability. The variable-rate application reduces input usage and environmental impacts while increasing efficiency and providing economic benefits. An example would be applying fertilizer to areas with high yield potential and reducing the amount of fertilizer in areas where nutrients are more likely to be washed out.
Increase profitability with documentation and information management
There is an increasing need and requirement to document the production process from field preparation to crop harvest. Precise documentation capabilities are provided by the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display.
On-screen mapping provides in-cab visualization in color and, by color-coding each pass on a map, the display provides a real-time picture of the crop harvested or rates applied when spraying, spreading, or planting. Apex™ software or compatible desktop software helps optimize business through more informed decision making while also meeting regulation requirements.
A task can be planned on the desktop software and transferred to the display. Field operations are recorded and stored. The data can then be transferred from the display, using a flash drive, to the desktop software for job reporting and analysis. This means less paperwork and more focus on analysis.
The documentation functionality provides data collection tools to document the farming operation. Features include:
- On-screen mapping
- Variable-rate applications
- As-applied map
- Coverage map
- Conditions (soil and weather)
Data collected on the display via these functionalities are providing a solid basis for precise, complete, and easy documentation.
