ATTENTION !!!! To all owners of iTC antennas
Dear Customers, Please read the following John Deere StarFire antenna support conditions:
We have received a message from John Deere that effective January 1, 2021, Starfire GPS receivers will no longer be able to receive the SF1 or SF2 adjustments required for Autotrac machines. ITC receivers will still be able to show coverage, document and be used for sectional control (in some cases) using the WAAS signal. This was not a decision made by John Deere or INMARSAT (the company that provides the bandwidth for our SF1 and SF2 correction signals). This change is due to a government satellite update in which new satellites broadcasting L5 signals are replacing older ones. The hardware in the ITC receiver will not allow it to receive more recent data. Starfire 3000 and 6000 are not affected by this change.
When you return an old iTC receiver with us only, you get a discount for buying a new SF3000 or SF6000 receiver.
