Keep your John Deere riding lawn mower running its best and know how you mow with the John Deere MowerPlus app. Simply scan your lawn tractor’s barcode to get custom information on your equipment. The app helps you determine the best time to mow, communicates expert pre-mow tips, offers maintenance reminders, and provides walk-through guides. Ready to mow? Select “Mow Now”, slide your phone into your pocket, and MowerPlus records your mowing path, total mowing time, as well as speed and coverage data for your mowing session.
New for 2019 - Get machine information automatically using the new MowerPlus Smart Connector and MowerPlus Hour Meter (see your local dealer for availability and compatibility).
Note: The app supports residential lawn equipment such as 100 Series, S240, X300, X500, X700, Z200 through Z600, and many similarly-sized older products. It does not presently support tractor models numbered 1000 and larger, such as 1025R. The app uses most recent product images. Some variation may exist from prior model years.
Addresses a few compatibility issues discovered with iOS 15 including a crash when attempting to Mow Now or review prior mow history.
Ratings and Reviews
Loved it until it died - IOS15
I got my tractor this spring and have used this app religiously. Everything was fine until I decided to upgrade my old iPhone XR to an iPhone 13. They just pushed the iOS 15 to my phone and boom! The app crashes every time I try to mow now. I had enjoyed sending pictures of my mows to my friends, and even joked that I got a mowing achievement badge when I had mowed 25 acres. The machine hours function was very helpful as well as the maintenance tips. Unfortunately, without being able to track the mow, this app will be almost useless until updated to be compatible with the latest iOS.
Not worth the money
I purchased the added feature on my brand new E130 to be able to communicate with this app. The reality is the machine only tells the app the current run-time hours, and that’s it! The rest of the features of this app are simply fluff - basically useless.
My machine needed grease lubrication at 8 hours. So, at 7 hours the machine started flashing “service” and “lubricate”. Great, right? Well the lubrication is finished and there is no way for the app to tell the machine! So, the machine continues to flash “service” and “lubricate”. Point is, there is no intelligence between the machine and the app. Therefore, the $100 bucks, or so, that I spent for the added hardware on the machine serves no real function. Don’t waste your money.
Lastly, through the app, you are able to contact the app creators. Well I wrote to them about this condition. Twice. No response.
Good app but not always reliable
This is a decent app. It tracks total time per mow, and estimates the covered acreage as well as your average speed. The tracks are not very accurate, but they are decent enough to figure out what pattern you used last time.
September 24, 2021: The app does not work with iOS 15.0. When tapping the button to begin mowing, the app freezes and then crashes. Tried closing out of the app and also restarting the phone - does not work.
