John Deere ending support for StarFire iTC receiver

John Deere’s basic Greenstar receiver StarFire iTC, which was introduced in the late 1990s and has not been sold in the UK since 2010, will receive its final phase-out on 1 June 2018 and will no longer receive support or updates from dealers.

The receiver will still operate as normal but activations will no longer be transferable on to newer domes, such as the StarFire 3000 and 6000 models, with the company’s decision being influenced by the limited features the iTC model offers in comparison with the modern offerings.

Current users should get in touch with their dealers to discuss their future requirements.
