Farmers do not need to have internet connection or use cellular data to view live harvesting information in the FarmTRX mobile app.
Connection to the Yield Monitor via the mobile app is through Bluetooth®, a wireless, short-range technology that allows for data exchange between devices within a short distance.
Farmers will only need to use an available WiFi network or cellular data to sync yield data from their mobile device to the FarmTRX Web App for processing into yield maps. The syncing process is completed in-app by navigating to the "Cloud Sync" page of the main menu. Yield data sync can be done at an interval that works for the user during harvest (for example, once daily when returning to the yard from the field).
The Yield Monitor Electronic Control Unit (installed in the combine cab) has 30 GB of onboard storage for storing harvest data.
