Add a vehicle display and vehicle groups online
With just a few quick clicks online, organization administrators can add a vehicle and organize vehicle groups on your Trimble Ag Software account, with the option to add device serial numbers to wirelessly connect precision ag data to your account. Automatically import field, boundary and job data once your vehicle connection is established. Our software uses spatial selection to look for matches between your data and our software, starting with the field name. If field names are different, Trimble Ag Software looks for similar field boundaries to find a match.
- Before linking vehicle data to your account, check that field names are the same in both the display and on Trimble Ag Software. This prevents the creation of duplicate fields and ensures data is associated with the right location on your farm.
- Compare the traditional Fleet Manager and the new FarmStream Manager on our Fleet Feature Comparison chart.
- For tips on setting up your display so that data flows into the online account, refer to our FarmStream setup guide.
