Bought a new JD round baler and Harvest Tech moisture sensor and applicator system.
This system uses an Ipad as a monitor. Having problems with the Ipad loading the hay application properly before baling.
I checked with factor, latest software, correct cable between Ipad and module. Anyone experience these problems?

alli can tell you is right now apple is going through some shit. you need to look at your ipad and see if its running on intel silicone or apple silicone {the chips inside} apple is transitioning to making all their own silicone chips. and uhh. they suck. they wont admit it. but they suck. ALL KINDS of compatibility problems. So thats where id start. What EXACT ipad do you have and what version of ios is the harvest tech made to work with?

Just read this morning that Apple iMacs and iPads will not be available until November because they are manufactured in China.

Just got 2 new iMacs with M1 chip, they don't suck and there is no delay. They do come from China and there may be incompatibility problems, but they ought to be resolved through a software patch by the manufacturer.

M1 chip def sucks hugely. it runs all the applications on an emulator. meaning all your crap is running sandboxed {the computer is running each application twice effectively}. The blue tooth problems are outrageous New Apple devices WILL NOT blue tooth connect to any non apple device {this circumvents the entire purpose of blue tooth}. M1 chip devices suck balls guy. Im writing this to you on one. And no this will not be solved through a software patch. M1 has been out over half a year with many many updates to ios to solve all sorts of bugs and issues. {Like the fact your data is totally unsecure} The chips are fast, of course they are ARM structure is better. BUT. these machines have a HARDWARE compatibility issue that will not be soon solved. Go buy yourself an old junk ipad and the tractor will be able to talk to it.

Quick way to test your ipad bluetooth for the M1 bug. Try to bluetooth connect an android cell phone to your ipad. {they will bind} then try to send a file from the phone to the Apple device. The file transfer will fail, every time. Move onto an older Apple Device and do the same test until you find one that works. Once you can send a file from android to apple then you know the bluetooth is working the way you need. I hate when companies sell you half a product.
