Disclaimer notes:

  • Service areas shown are approximate
  • Tractor GPS receiver must be RTK enabled
  • Some manufacturers are not supported at all sites
  • Accuracy decreases with increasing range from the reference station
  • RTK is “Real Time Kinematic” – accurate and relatable
  • Does not need cellphone coverage to work
  • No convergence or warm-up time
  • Trees have minimal impact on performance
  • Does not require a tripod in the field
