John Deere is no longer charging for JDLink Connect; it will be free for our customers, for life. Customers must upgrade to a 4G MTG to get JDLink free for life. This plan goes into effect on July 14, 2021. Please get in touch with your sales representatives to learn how to make the switch!
If your machines are equipped with a 4G JDLink MTG (modem), simply turn it on within JDLink for seamless connectivity between your equipment, your operators, and your jobsite data. You even have the option to auto-enroll existing and future machines and MTGs. It’s a single, one-time setup that takes less than two minutes.
JDLink connectivity unlocks the full power of near-real-time data so you can make instant decisions and create valuable efficiencies. To help you manage more with less, John Deere is the first in the industry to eliminate having to pay for wireless connected services. No subscription hassles. No renewal dates. No fees.
As of July 14, JDLink will become free for all customers for as long as they own their equipment. Subscription management will shift from a per-machine basis to an organizational level. Instead, customers opt into JDLink for their entire fleet. One-click in their JDLink account, and all currently owned machines, as well as machines purchased in the future, will be automatically added to their JDLink organization. Subscriptions will never have to be managed again. Log in to JDLink, and Deere will prompt you with a screen that allows you to start the process to opt into JDLink. Customers can choose to leave certain pieces of equipment out of their JDLink account if they so choose. At the end of the process, customers can automatically decide whether to enroll future equipment purchases into their JDLink account.
Once complete, customers will never have to manage subscriptions again. The only requirement for customers to enjoy JDLink, free for life, is that the hardware on their machine (Modular Telematics Gateway or MTG) is current. Unfortunately, 3G devices will no longer function after January 1, 2022, so we encourage all of our customers to take advantage of existing programs, allowing them to upgrade to a 4G MTG.
