Is anyone else frustrated with John Deere's technology?

Am I the only one who constantly struggles with John Deere's software and monitors? Every season is calls to the dealership and YouTube videos trying to figure it out. There are updates that are supposed to help but seldom do.

Why must I leave MyJohnDeere.com and go to an app to transfer data? Prescriptions and set up must be saved in a folder and then unzipped, a button that says transfer would be to simple, I bet FBN has programers that could make it work!

Why must all guidance lines be named? I just want to go in a straight line. And many more issues.

The local dealership is trying but it seems like we're all using TRS technology! If someone tells me to unplug the monitor and plug it back in one more time II might just lose it! When was the last time you did that at home. If Apple turned out something like that the would be out of business tomorrow.

I'm just frustrated to spend good money on such technology that is so difficult to use. I gain very good data, but it takes to much time and effort.

If you agree let me know. If you have other issues post them and maybe we can help each other out while JD moves out of the 1990's
