Choosing the Best Display for Your Farm
April 9, 2021
The Best Display for Your Farming Operation
Farmers know their fields – they catch the curve of every hill, anticipate where water collects after a heavy rain, and remember just the right spot to catch sunsets at the end of a long day.
Precision agriculture takes that unwritten familiarity and knowledge – the kind only acquired through hard work and daily commitment – to the next level with accurate data and modern technological application.
Farm with Trimble Precision
Having a Trimble display in your cab gives you industry-leading performance with the ability to accurately monitor and map field information in real time, providing the right bridge for technological advances to improve your existing operations.
Our range of Guidance and Steering precision ag solutions provides the right solution for maximizing your output, whether you’re a small farm or a large operation.
Stay on Track with Automated Steering
Field work is hard work, and our automated and assisted steering systems take off the burden. Automated steering helps eliminate bad passes, skips and overlaps by using mapped data for automatic terrain compensation. You can work more efficiently without working harder, as the technology does this heavy lifting for you. All the data you need is at your fingertips as you work, easily accessible through the in-cab displays.
Choosing The Best Display for Your Needs
Every farm is different. They use different equipment, vary in size, grow different crops, and cover various types of terrain. Here’s a handy guide to the Trimble Agriculture in-cab displays to help decide which choice is best for you.
The Trimble TMX-2050™ display system offers a comprehensive package with full internet connectivity that helps you take control of your entire operation. The 12.1-inch, high-definition touch screen offers sharp visuals, an Android-based operating system, and your choice of two display applications. This system is powerful for advanced users or to manage overall operations at their fingertips, yet simple enough for a hired hand to operate during field work.
It’s a rugged, durable choice for a variety of conditions, and accuracy is assured, from the sub-meter to the sub-inch level based on the correction service you select. With a built-in GPS receiver and a video camera input, communicating data is easy. You’ll enjoy the full suite precision ag solutions, including assisted and automated steering, implement control and row guidance, among others. It’s also portable, so you can swap it between vehicles when needed.
With a slightly smaller screen (10.1 inches), the Trimble GFX-750™ offers many of the same features available with a little less real estate needed inside the cab thanks to the roof-mounted guidance controller and screen size. In addition to its built-in internet connectivity, this unit also offers Bluetooth and WiFi communication options.
This mid-range option also offers assisted and automated steering precision ag options and the NAV-900 Guidance Controller. Like the TMX-2050™, the GFX-750™ offers the same hardware durability for use in all field conditions as well as the easy-to-use software platform, so the emphasis is on getting the work done, not trying to navigate an overly complex computer system. This unit is also portable and suitable for use in a variety of vehicles.
If you’re looking to introduce precision agriculture to your operation, Trimble’s GFX-350™ is a great, economical way to see firsthand how this technology can improve your overall ROI. You’ll enjoy the functionality and simplified installation process, too, which gets you ready and out in the field fast.
This unit is also economical for tight cab situations – with a 7-inch touch screen, it’s mountable in the smallest areas. The GFX-350™ is compatible with NAV-500 and NAV-900 guidance controllers. Operators can control up to two channels and 24 sections with this unit, and it’s Bluetooth and WiFi-compatible. With the same durability that all Trimble displays offer, this unit is hardworking and can be with you in the field for every season and across all equipment brands.
Discover the Possibilities
Using a Trimble in-cab display doesn’t just offer the opportunity to maximize your operation’s profitability. It gives you the ability to work smarter and faster, increasing your downtime to catch those sunsets a little more often, but from outside of the cab.
