I didn't want to confuse the other thread about the 200 and 600 monitors so I've started a new one. I'm hoping someone who has installed an Ag Leader Insight into a 7/8010 can help.

If a person is ordering a 7010 or 8010, how should you equip it if you're installing an Insight yield monitor?

I'm unsure of what combine functions are done through the factory display. The 'gauges' are all in the display right? So I'm thinking that you would order it with a 200 display so that you have your gauge functions and then your map would be on the Insight. Ag Leader suggested to order it with as little as possible. But how little? If you order it with the 600 display that comes with a box to return to the factory, then the combine won't run without a display, correct? It says on the Machine Builder that all combines must leave the factory with the monitor, but it can be returned. (Except if you order the 200 display, cause you can't return it). That tells me the machine won't run without a display.

The machine has to have either a 200 or 600 monitor to function. If you are going to install an insight system then the 200 will work fine for your application.
The 600 is better though for viewing due to it's much larger size.
The 600 monitor deduct with the return option is offered if the owner already has a 600Pro monitor from another machine like planter,sprayer, auto guidance tractor. The monitor can be moved between machines quickly. Never figured this was a good option since some kind of monitor will be needed for the next owner.

The machine can be run and operate without a display, but I wouldn't try to harvest like that. You would have absolutely no feedback on anything except for the early 8010 machines with the Shaft Speed Monitor on the A-post. You also can't adjust some things like header sensitivity and raise/lower speed without the display.

What are you doing with the Insight that the Case system can't do?

There are many options that can be done with the insite that the Pro600 can't do when not every piece of equipment you own is CaseIH. Such as controlling variable rate drives on planters etc, controlling spray boom shutoff by GPS, controlling row shutoffs on planters, and the list goes on and on. So sometimes it's much more convenient to have one system that can do it all. If this is the case, then just get the 200 with the combine and use the insite for the rest of your operation.

I already have an Insight, but don't have a 600. I pretty much fabbed up the Insight harness to work with my seeding rig, so I'm not going to go through that again with a Case display.

You corn/bean guys that can plug and play a complete Precision Farming system make me jealous. Sure, I can go buy about a million dollars worth of new iron and get where I'm at, but my farm size can't justify it.
