Starfire ITC. What to do?

Purchased a 09, 4730 recently. Came with starfire itc receiver and 2600 monitor. I knew when buying I only have 2 years signal left on receiver. A couple local dealers have programs where I trade in my system for a 6000 receiver and different monitor. Apparently there may be problems with 6000 and the 2600 monitor. Can get a new 6000 and 2630 monitor for about 12Gs with trade in of my old equipment. Bite the bullet and buy now, or wait 2 years?

I've never heard of a compatibility issue between the 6000 and the 2600 but we don't have any 2600's anymore. I know the 6000 doesn't work with brown box displays.

Might be worth looking into a 4640 display instead of the 2630, the 4640 is cheaper but to get section control you have to buy a yearly subscription which I think is extremely stupid.

4640 has compatibility issues with older equipment though. No 00, 10 or 20 series machines. 30 or R's only.

That all being said we just bought a 2630 and 6000 for our farm, was looking at the 4640 but wanted all the displays to be the same and we have a 8300 and 9520, both of which are not compatible.

You also have two years to find a used 3000 receiver.

Thought about 4640 but don't like the idea of a yearly subscription. Saw a 3000 for $3800 on Kijji. I think the closer to end date of ITC's the higher the price on used will be. New 6000 is about 5K with trade of my ITC. Can save $2200 if I trade for a used 2630. Don't know if its worth going that way.

4640 display works on a 7720 tractor just fine

I have obviously no knowledge of your dealer but my experience of jd dealers here is they rarely have any idea what they are talking about.

I think there is a spread between "what works" and "deere approved" which gets told by deere to the dealers.

Ok, so based on a few things you've mentioned hear...
If I run a 4710 sprayer on a 2600 for guidance and section control, and a brown box for rate controller, with an ITC receiver... all I should need to do is get a 3000 receiver?
