Official reply would be, “It is open source, anything is possible.”
Currently it does not. It could fairly easily read another field data, and plot it’s sections, and see its tractor. They just have to have the exact same start point. I would guess, you could load it every minute or so. You would have to skip ablines, as there is no way Currently to identify a line as complete. It could also just update the field image every few minutes and that would just allow planting where it is unpainted. Working on a similar project now.
No, see the next answer.
2b. Search for variable rate in the bar above, @SK21 has built a rate app that ties to a hack I did to read kml rate prescribed areas. This could be reversed to map rate applied or yield gathered. Been a few hacks to map rate applied of up to three inputs. This will map most any input.
The current work around is using a usb drive, once the first machine sets the boundary / ab, or you want to share a previous years because you have RTK after all, you can copy the field data on the usb drive and paste it in the second machines folder. You can also share machine tunes the same way.
Or have the main machine connected to an offline network drive like g drive, once the ab is set save online. have the second machine only have read access to the drive, and have offline storage checked for it too. The maps will not update together but your ab’s and boundaries will be the same.
The full blown live share is a dream of many, but every spring AOG gets a batch of upgrades from winter inventiveness.
With this and an image writer/reader it is very possible. Image reader just has to update every so often. I’ve the image coming in as texture 22. If the slave tractor is saving its image as green sections, the master would read it as complete. It would only not turn the sections on when over the green, but you could see it on the screen. Interesting…
John Deere is like the Apple of farm equipment, It plays nice if its all proprietary and locked down and very expensive. Most other systems are the same, there is no giant profit unless it stays magic.
There may need to be a coverage “layer” system, select which layers or jobs you want displayed. This would be good even when just using one machine and wanting to keep track of changes of seed or chem batches.
