    Raspberry Pi - Python Based GPS System

    Yes, I think you’re approach is best. I assume you’re not using a PCB then? I think a lot of the noise users are experiencing may be due to the PCB setup where components are so close together. What version of AgopenGPS are you running?

    Raspberry Pi - Python Based GPS System

    Much of the need for dual antenna can be avoided if you place the inclinometer over the gearbox. Even without cab suspension, the cab vibrates too much and impacts the roll measurements - also when it is placed on the cab roof, this effect is multiplied the higher it is.

    Raspberry Pi - Python Based GPS System

    I'm considering going down the AgOpenGPS route and using a similar receiver setup. Some people prefer the Digikey version of the F9P (for reason that I now can't remember). What are you using for inclinometer, compass, etc?

    Webinar: Tyres, Traction & Compaction

    Great Webinar. I will definitely be doing better research before buying next set of tyres. I know it's important to take tyre pressure when tyres are cold, but I wonder what correction factor the vario pressure systems use before reinflating for road use.

    Baker boot

    Anyone find a supplier of 3 piece baker boots for s tines? Much difference in overall performance between using the angled s tines or the coil tines on duncan/aitchison? Either one better for not pulling up stones? S tines are cheaper to buy than coil tines anyway.
