I bought this system last winter and I'm in the process of getting it going. the apps for this product are originally produced for Apple products and apps are developed later for android tablets. I really do not like Apple products and recently bought a android tablet to run this system. After talking to a Agrematic tech recently I am starting to rethink my android purchase and suck it up and buy as Apple I pad. For those that are already run this system what are your suggestions on how to set up this system and keep it running?

They work flawless on apple products. On my iphone or the ipad that is left in the tractor. It takes a little to setup your fields ect. but the system is frankly awesome once you have it. One of the best buy's on the farm right now. An base Ipad mini is pretty reasonable cost wise and just works.
As to android a couple of my guys have them and one can't connect at all and the other one seems to have issues as well that they can't seem to get to the bottom of.
So, all the fields can be set up before harvest? Thanks for the advice on the android products, will probably head to Costco tomorrow to buy A I Pad. Will have to buy a I Pad book for dummies to get going.
Yes do a calibration. I suppose if you know your old scale is bang on you could use it to calibrate Libra. Hook up Libra and select your load cells then zero out. Then hook up your old scale and zero out then load up. Record what your old scale reads as the loaded weight. Hook up Libra and compare what it reads and then follow the instructions to enter in the actual weight from your old scale compared to what it reads to get your cal factor.
Maybe some brands of scales the cal will cross over some how but ours didn't.
