Hm, I have read few times on US forums that only Autotrac is one time unlock fee and all other like Section Control is yearly sub on 4640.

Thanks for the list. Now I only need to find that list for 6R Ultimate Edition so I know what I get if I pay bit more for one than normal or Premium Edition.

I think in the states it is a subscription rather than a one off activation, they could offer both? I believe jd are a lot more controlling about software in the states, I’ve seen it come up a few times about ownership over there!

Yes I know that but definitely US guys say all except Autotrac is yearly fee there on 4640.

So nobody has a list what I get in 6R Ultimate Edition tractor ? I mean what is Ultimate part.

Now I have read a bit about v1 vs v2 on 4600 screens, like v1 cannot show guidance lines on the screen wth ?

The activations are one off but obviously on the tractor screen. You could have a stand alone screen which you can have section control etc. Which means it isn't limited to that tractor.
Yes, that’s what I do with my 4640 and previously my 2630 screens. However in the states the activations on those screens are on a subscription basis so you can pay monthly not only for a signal etc but also for the activation to use it.

I got a 6155r new in 2018 and I’m sure it’s a classed as a ultimate but it didn’t come with much more than standard spec. I could still take things off it that I didn’t want when we were going through the order process. If your wanting to know what a certain tractor has then get your dealer to check it out on there system.

Give anyone in any deere dealer the serial number and they will give you its exact spec. It's not a given that a premium or ultimate is a standard spec. It's a starting point from which any spec can be added or taken off. The newer ones from about 2019 come with command pro with the ultimate spec which can't be taken off, but a 2017 wouldn't have command pro anyway.

I was thinking Ultimate is a package like on cars, you know what every car has if it has some package.
Dealers know what it contains now but I need for older tractors. I can check with VIN but not to call every day to check.

There are JD people here so maybe they will have info what was included in Ultimate Edition spec back then.

What are differences with 4600 v1 vs 4600 v2 screen ? I see that it is possible to upgrade ECU for 1500€.
