StarFireTM Updates

URGENT Updates to your StarFire Receiver

As John Deere continues to develop new technology, including the addition of new satellite constellations, updates need to be made to current StarFire 6000 and StarFire 3000 receivers to ensure these receivers continue functioning into the future.

A mandatory software update has been released (August, 2020) for both StarFire 6000 and StarFire 3000 receivers.

If this update is not completed by January 1, 2021 Your Reciever and AutoTrack will not function.
