Are You Collecting Data the Hard Way? Make It Easy With FieldView Drive™

April 1, 2021

There are many advantages to having in-field data visualization but often needs real time data collection. With Climate FieldView™, the FieldView Drive is what makes that visualization possible.

Quality data is key to the good life, and it’s no secret that data collection isn't always easy. It can require multiple cables, flash drives, and hard drives. How can you access the value of your data if it’s locked away in different equipment models or written down in a notebook somewhere? It's no wonder some farmers didn't bother tracking data in years past, and maybe still don’t. But today, it doesn’t have to be a bother. One piece of technology can connect your entire operation. The FieldView Drive can make old equipment collect data like a brand-new model. With only a GPS and Bluetooth® connection, you can automatically track every planting, spraying and harvest pass. All you have to do is plug in the FieldView Drive, connect it to an iPad® with your FieldView account and go.

Red, Green, Yellow and More: The FieldView Drive Works With Every Color

We have a team of precision equipment specialists who are adding to our already long list of compatible equipment. We suggest that you check your compatibility frequently (at least annually), referencing the Climate FieldView Compatibility Guide for the equipment you run. Chances are, we can find a way to connect you with seamless data collection.

Planter, Sprayer or Combine: The FieldView Drive Connects

This isn’t just harvest or planting data — every input can be tracked and mapped using the FieldView Drive. This comes in handy when applying fertility and crop protection products in particular. If you apply a variable rate, having that data in FieldView makes it simple to compare different application rates. You can see what worked and how much it improved or protected your yield.

No matter the age of your equipment, we can probably find a way to make it compatible with the FieldView Drive.

Map Anything While Driving Nearly Anything

If your equipment has a GPS signal, we can connect it with the FieldView Drive. No matter the age of your equipment, we can probably find a way to make it compatible with the FieldView Drive.

FieldView Drive connects your equipment to your iPad® or mobile device via Bluetooth® - similar to connecting your phone to bluetooth in a vehicle - allowing you to collect data and store it as you pass through your fields.

Monitor Multiple Machines Simultaneously

When you’re running a big operation with more than one planter, sprayer, or combine, the FieldView Drive makes it possible to be in two places at once. If you’re not able to be in the cab, you can configure your sharing settings so that you can still access a live feed of what’s happening. As long as you have the FieldView Cab app and the FieldView Drive, or a Precision Planting 20|20 SeedSense®, and an internet connection, you can use RemoteView to see key data such as population rate at planting, application data during growing season and yield data at harvest — right as it’s rolling into the cab.
