outback stx or max

i have looked at putting a outback stx monitor edrive xd and hyd steer and ac110 into a sprayer some are telling me i should upgrade to a max monitor about a $3000 upgrade anyone run both or a opinion if it is worth it? some say that it is hard to see and operate changes on the smaller monitor but others say you want the switches added to either system for ease of use when bouncing down the field (heard that some have switched out their stx for the max for this reason)

Can't comment in the stx, we went from s3's to the max. So far I've really liked it. The favourites menu keeps the more "seasoned" guys from playing around with anything. My "gps isn't working" calls are pretty much none existant now.

offroadnt and Snipe like this.

The only function I would like on the max is to automatically pick up the next ab line after a turn when not using eturns.

I went from a S3 and automate to a max and ac110. The bigger screen is nice I also added the external switches easier to grab with a finger then a pressure sensitive button on the screen when bouncing around the field. One thing I wished was that the max was a bit lighter

The STX is a bit small. I had a pair of them and went to S3's. Looking to go to a Max, reason I am planning that route is the ISO in my main tractor is a disaster so rather than having two monitors hanging in the cab I could go to one.
There are alot of "upgrades" that can be done to the Max that can't be done to the STX

Yes I have the max and would like auto engage. Stx is to small not sure why they discontinued the s3 it was about as small as you wanted to go.

I may be wrong but I thought you can set a Max to autoengage. Different to an S3 but I think you still can. Not totally sure as I have not done it with my Max as yet.
