RTX guide point gps

Been told this is the answer for my Steiger and will help the sectional control our being precise, looking for better swath to swath control, and better over night accuracy, it's been not the best with WASS..

Anyone tried this out and your thoughts, how will sectional control work for head lands.. Thanks

I have used RTX on a NH sprayer for two years, its been very good, close to actual RTK. I don't enjoy the subscription price.

The subscription price is brutal but I don’t know what else to do across 60 miles with very bad cell service in a large area of it. Considering biting the bullet on 3 seperate base stations

It works great using it on a T9.560 and Morris 550 sectional control drill.

For guys set up with base stations, how do you find the hardware lasts? Ever need to replace anything, or is there something that needs to be replaced regularly?

And most importantly, how does a base station work in very rolly land? Everything says line of sight and I just dont hardly see how thats practical anywhere but obviously some people are making it work.

Also, does anyone know the difference between these ‘joey’ 900mhz radios that I see guys talking about adding to their antennas and the one that RME wants to sell me for 4200 bucks?

We cover about 35 miles with one station that's in a central location with Trimble 900mhz radio's and an amplifier/ big gain antenna. (not quite kosher)

It's pushing 10 years and it's been flawless. RTX keeps your initial investment down but in the long run your cost is less with RTK especially if your running a gaggle of rover's. We're up to 15 unlocked to RTK and there's no subscription bill in the mail.

Also if your ever considering ditching or other earth works RTK is mandatory so that's another consideration and was the driver for us and the initial investment that's paid back big time through the wet years.

Do you use any repeaters in your set up?
