FieldView is an iPad app that works with the 20/20 display (any version) to make a real-time picture of the data being gathered during planting. Also, while the 20/20 display provides average values at a glance, you can easily glance planter conditions on a per-row basis with the app, allowing you to quickly detect changing quality conditions.
Five advantages that the FieldView app can provide:
What iPad versions work with FieldView?
iPad 2’s and newer versions work with the FieldView application. It is recommended, but not required, to have cellular-data capability instead of WiFi only. For one, this allows your data to update to the cloud while planting (feature of FieldView Plus). Secondly, a GPS location is required for field scouting, and that is not (easily) available on a non-cellular-enabled iPad.
Does FieldView replace the 20/20 monitor in the cab?
No, the FieldView app and module work in collaboration with the 20/20. Data is processed in the FieldView module, but at this time, setup and control of the 20/20 technologies (vDrive, DeltaForce, etc.) is still performed in the display. The iPad can be used to import general vehicle measurements, client/farm/field lists, seed hybrids/varieties, and variable rate prescriptions to the 20/20 display.
Do I need the iPad in the cab while planting to get all of the information?
No, you can download all of the planting data at a later time. The only drawback is if there is an issue with the planter, it might be too late to resolve.
