TrueGuide implement tractor guidance system

TrueGuide implement guidance system

Passive implement guidance system that monitors and corrects the position of your implement by moving the tractor.

More +
Features
  • Allows the implement get on line with movement from the tractor
  • Requires a GNSS antenna on your implement and Autopilot™ system and the FmX® display in your tractor
  • Ideal for broadacre crop applications in which multi-pass repeatability is not required

Control your implement with the Trimble® TrueGuide® implement guidance system, a passive guidance system that monitors and corrects the position of your implement with compensation from your tractor.

With TrueGuide, your implement’s position Is dependent on your tractor. When your implement drifts, TrueGuide signals your tractor’s Autopilot system to pull the implement on line—so you can operate with ease no matter the guidance path.

  • Reduces uncontrolled drift of the implement by more than 50% over guiding the tractor alone
  • Minimizes draft and result in more consistent guess rows
  • Increase your precision with input placement

Keep your implement and tractor on the same guidance line with the Trimble® TrueTracker™ implement steering system, an active implement guidance system that allows your implement to guide itself independently from your tractor.

TrueTracker uses your tractor’s Autopilot system to monitor your implement and signal it to follow the correct path during periods of drift. TrueTracker keeps you confident that your implement is on line all the time.

  • Accurately steer your implement and tractor on a repeatable path
  • Operate in the most difficult terrain and variable soil conditions
  • Minimize draft and result in more consistent guess rows
  • Reduce crop damage and compaction
