Looks great, Brian! How are you storing the coverage data? Are you using a GIS database of some kind? Even in its simple form it's at least as functional as the Raven Smartboom, but with a visual display. Even if you consider the cost of a windows tablet to run it on, it is still cheaper than the old raven unit.

This is a normal win32 C# app, right? I wonder how much work it would take to get it to run under Mono on Linux.

Would a GPS refresh rate of 5 Hz be slightly better or does it not matter in practice?

I was wondering what it would take to calculate where the implement is relative to the tractor during turns and so forth. I did some research into trailer path prediction algorithms, but never put anything concrete together.

Though in practice when using the Raven SmartBoom, which has no such turning compensation, it didn't seem to matter nearly as much as I thought it would.
