First Look: New John Deere 4640 Display

June 16, 2017


Introducing the New John Deere 4640 Display

Last week, in addition to the new S700 Series Combine and 700C/FC Corn Heads, John Deere also introduced the new 4640 Universal Display. Now you can get the latest display technology to work with John Deere tractors using the 2630 Display (or previous versions) plus the flexibility to use the display on multiple machines. The new 4640 Display was designed to offer better data collection and increased functionality for customers. It enables customers to use the most common and popular John Deere applications including AutoTrac, Documentation, and Section Control, in a portable display with the latest internal components, design and user interface.


The new 4640 Universal Display provides an easy-to-operate solution for customers with the John Deere Generation 4 Operating System. The display has several features that make it easier to use and navigate screens:

› Easy to install

› Features smartphone-style “App” menus

› Set up and start up of the display is easier and takes less time

› Swipe to navigate between run pages

› Greater customization of run pages

› More on-screen help guides for the user

› A power button to shut off the display or restart without powering down the tractor.

These improvements in the display result in less training time, less downtime and fewer operator errors.


The 4640 Display also offers improved Gen 4 application performance for AutoTrac, Section Control, and Documentation:

› Improved documentation for high-speed planting and nutrient application, plus the latest data syncing functionalities for on-board/off-board flexibility.

› Ability to more accurately map and operate Section Control to precisely apply multiple products simultaneously with individual coverage maps and application points.

› Import new customer and product information without the risk of overwriting existing client/farm/field and guidance information.

› Wireless data transfer (WDT) with the “data sync” feature for automatic transmission of work documentation to the John Deere Operations Center.


Overall, the improved performance of these Gen 4 applications increases customer profitability by helping users work more efficiently, reduce overlap and skips, and maximize inputs and field operations.


New Subscription Model

The precision ag software for the display is available as either a one or five year subscription and in two levels, either AutoTrac only or as Precision Ag Core that includes not only AutoTrac but also documentation and Section Control. Now customers can match the right software subscription level and duration to their individual needs. Customers also have a lower cost entry into these precision ag applications and the ability to try new applications without having to buy permanent software licenses.


The 4640 Universal Display is available for order now. It is compatible with John Deere 30-Series to the latest 6R, 7R, 8R and 9R Series Tractors, as well as AutoTrac Universal and AutoTrac Controller compatible competitive tractors. Software update 17-2 is required for functionality. Precision ag application compatibility for implements and controllers, and for general applications, is limited to the latest Gen 4 OS software application.
