Are you looking for a solid laptop or tablet to run the excellent FarmerGPS software on, as well as the other things such as a GPS antenna? Not a problem! I got Panasonic Toughbooks which are fully rugged units, suitable for field use. They are great for use in a tractor, and can survive dust, moisture, vibrations, and more!
I can also install FarmerGPS for you (however, you need to have your own license), and configure everything. You can also pick up a nice GPS antenna or an RTK setup from me as well. I also have high quality 12V adapters available – one less thing for you to worry about! I have 10, 12, 13, 15 inch refurbished Toughbook units available for you to choose from. Just contact me, and tell me your needs! Fun fact, FarmerGPS was developed in Alberta.
FarmerGPS incl. 3D perspective view (as of version 5), “light-bar” like directions, resolution change, sprayer on/off input, record keeping, exports to Excel, OpenOffice, Google Earth etc. You can find out more on the official website.
Advantages of GPS guidance in agriculture:
- Reducing overlap and minimizing spraying gaps
- Lowering fertilizer and chemical costs by reducing overlaps
- Minimizing environmental impact
- Verifying complete coverage – at the time of application
- Maintaining reports on all field activity
- Marking areas or points in the field
FarmerGPS Alternative for FREE!
I also offer a FREE alternative to FarmerGPS included on my units! Take a look at the video demos to see the difference. In addition, my systems support auto steer. I also offer cheap RTK without subscriptions. Please contact me to discuss your needs.
Why are my farming GPS systems a good choice?
All of the units below can’t beat the value I offer. They can’t beat the fact that there’s no subscription. Their functionality is similar. It’s a clear win, from a value perspective! Topcon X14 | Agricision onTrak | Patchwork BlackBox Air | Sixty-5 Grass-Guide | Ag Leader InCommand | Teejet Matrix 430 | Raven Cruizer | Trimble GFX-750 EZ-Guide 250 GFX-350 | CenterLine 220 | John Deere | FieldBee. My systems are compatible with with all tractor brands such as: John Deere, Case IH, Massey Ferguson, New Holland, Fendt, Mahindra, Deutz-Fahr, Kubota, Valtra, Claas, International. I also supply systems for marine navigation, and the same unit can work for both. Dealers still charge tens of thousands of dollars for farming GPS systems in 2024! This is not technologically justifiable. RTK and other technologies have developed to the point where they should be affordable to anyone, not just big farmers with a budget in the tens of thousands. Please contact me to see how little you can spend!
