John Deere continues to develop alternative solutions within the ForestSight technology suite. One of our favorite additions to this suite is John Deere TimberNavi – a simple, fully-integrated mapping solution that allows forestry equipment owners and operators to get the most visibility around the land they are harvesting. Ideally, the technology aims to help operators become more productive and efficient in the woods.
This technology has proven to reduce digital-mapping time by up to 60%. Talk about taking efficiency and productivity to the next level. Whether in the woods or off-site, owners can better manage their fleet of equipment.
For this reason, we’ve put together a step-by-step guide on getting started with John Deere TimberNavi. Enjoy!
