1800 monitor for drill

Im currently running a 2004 Deere 1820 with 1910 through a brown box and am looking to switch over to a 1800. Can the drill and auto steer be ran through the 1800 at the same time? Is a 2600 much of an upgrade over an 1800?

If you are currently running a brown box then your computer that is mounted to your 1910 air cart is most likely a "Seedstar 1". An 1800 or 2600 could still run the drill, but it would be in "brown box" mode (same screens and menus) so you really don't gain much unless the main goal is running autosteer because brownbox's with autosteer are basically unicorns now.

Question 1) Yes, I think both can be ran through 1800. I'm pretty sure I've seen an airdrill, autosteer, and NH3 all ran through an 1800 before

Question 2) Yes, a 2600 is much more user friendly than a 1800. the 1800 has dials and buttons rather than touchscreen, so if you struggle with computers or have to train others to run the drill I wouldn't use an 1800

Thanks for the info! The main reason for going to the 1800 or 2600 from the brown box is for running the auto steer, donít have a keycard for the brown box.

I have an older 1910 and have been running two monitors. Brown box for 1910 and 2600 for mapping and guidance.
However the brown box will no longer talk to the 1910 and appears to be either the cart loom or the ECU. I'm thinking of updating with the newer ECU (# AA69814) and Loom (# AA68678) so I can run the seeder with the 2600 alone.
My question is what does the 2600 seeding screen look like? Is it user friendly and also allow guidance control at the same time without having to switch between pages?

as mentioned above the cart has to be "seedstar 2" to have the interface w the gps screen. otherwise its running off the brown box emulater and changing between that and the main interface is a pain.


you have to be savvy enough (or have someone set it up) to customize a screen. but yes you can have one screen showing cart functions with a smaller side bar running your gps or vice versa. Its pretty sweet. you do need to have an individual page for the cart and the GPS to switch to for calibrating the cart or starting a new field. I have a 2630 on my drill and 2600 on the combine and there are a few differences on the interface when you start customizing screens (I think its a little easier to snap an AB line on the 2630).




there was an upgrade for older 1910 carts (mine had it when I bought it) to bring them up to seedstar 2 (some wiring harness changes??)
