Precision Ag - FAQs

Do I have the latest software version on my display and receiver?

Software updates for Gen4 displays (4600 v2, 4640, 4240, 42000) are brought out three times a year.  No further development is being done for GreenStar 3 or GreenStar 2 displays.  Both StarFire 3000 and StarFire 6000 receivers require a mandatory update prior to 31st of January, 2021. For more information on the current software available, contact the AFGRI Precision Ag Support Centre (PASC) on (08) 6274 2424 or email amssupport@afgri.com.au today.
