What is FieldView Plus?
FieldView Plus is an optional subscription-based
service that uses the cloud to provide advanced features to
FieldView, allowing farmers to have their information anytime, anywhere, on different devices (web, tablet,
How much does FieldView Plus cost?
The FieldView Plus subscription is an annual purchase for $250/year.
I have multiple iPads on my farm. Do I pay a subscription fee for each one?
No. Multiple iPads in use on a single farm utilize one username, therefore only one subscription fee applies.
How do I purchase a FieldView subscription?
Go to https://cloud.precisionplanting.com/fvp. Here you will be prompted to login, enter a
method of payment and accept the End User License agreement for the current crop year.
Who has access to my payment information?
We use a secure third party service that processes the subscription payment. No information is visible to
Precision Planting or its affiliates.
Where is my data actually stored?
The PrecisionCloud uses Amazon Web Services (AWS) to securely store your data. The data physically
resides on servers in Amazon data centers located in the United States.
How fast does the data transfer occur?
CloudSync happens in near real time. Approximately every 5 minutes data syncs between FieldView and
the cloud. Integrated maps between multiple machines in the same field are typically visible on the other
iPads within 15 minutes.
Exactly what data is kept in sync between multiple iPads?
The list of field names, all field maps, pins, photos and notes are all synced.
Can I import maps into FieldView?
FieldView Plus users can import shape files into the FieldView website. They will sync down to your iPad
and be visible as a custom map layer within FieldView. Examples include tile maps or fertility maps. This
allows you the ability to view all your map data layers in one place on
your iPad anywhere!
Can I share my data with agronomists or farm managers?
From the FieldView Website Data Manager, you can share field files with trusted advisors via email or a
software sharing key.
How much of my data plan will it take to move data over 3G/4G?
A 2GB/month data plan should be plenty in the peak planting/harvest season. Smaller growers (less than
2,000 acres) will probably be fine with 1GB/month (allowing for typical non-FieldView
use) If you have new
iPads that you are Cloud Syncing for the first time, we recommend that you do this over wifi
to reduce 3G /
4G data use. If you are using RemoteView features, you will use data faster than outlined here.
Can I change the setting so my iPad does not sync data with the Cloud?
Yes. Go to Configure > Device Settings and change "Cloud Sync" to "Disable". This will prevent the iPad
from sending/receiving data from the cloud. However, if you disable CloudSync, your data is not backed up
and all cloud based features (text alerts, etc) will not function. If you are part of a Precision Acre package, data streaming is part of the package therefore this feature must remain enabled.
What is the FieldView website?
https://fieldview.precisionplanting.com/login.htm provides new, easy-to-use features for FieldView Plus users.
Operation-wide maps, reports and tools that allow growers to have a larger view of their operation and manage and share their data.
Which year's data is available on the FieldView Plus website?
Only 20/20 data from version 6.0 or greater (Spring 2012 release) will upload to the FieldView Web for use on the Dashboard and Reports.
I have a field name that is spelled differently on two of my 20/20's. How do I fix this?
Use the Field Manager in FieldView website to edit field names or merge 2 fields together that are really the same.
Changes made in the Field Manager will flow down to the FieldView app and the 20/20 starting with Fieldview 3.0 and SeedSense 8.0.
Can I access FieldView Web from my iPad or other mobile tablet?
Yes. FieldView Web works on iPad and other tablet devices connected to the internet.
If I decide I no longer want the added features of FieldView Plus, can I cancel my subscription?
Yes, provided you have not planted or harvested any acres on your account during the subscribed crop season.
If you cancel after you have begun syncing planting or harvest data for the subscribed crop season, there are no partial refunds.
Please contact Precision Planting Support at 309-925-5050 to cancel your subscription.
What will Precision Planting do with my data?
The complete Precision Planting Privacy Commitment is available within FieldView or by clicking here.
Can my equipment data be seen to assist with Product Support Issues?
Yes. We allow the dealer you select as your supporting dealer to see machine health info in order to provide
advanced support. No field data is available unless you choose to share it with them as in #11.
Will there continue to be new features released within FieldView if I am not a FieldView Plus user?
Yes. We plan to continue to enhance and add features available to all FieldView users, as well as add
additional premium features for FieldView Plus users in the future.
What reporting options are available?
The FieldView website has planting and harvest reports that provide reporting by field, machine, and hybrid.
These reports can be viewed online and downloaded as PDF or Excel files. In addition, by June 2014, FV
Plus growers with a linked Climate account will be able to print a summary report for FSA and Crop
Insurance Reporting. Additional automated reports and season summaries are also available on the Climate
