    Raspberry Pi - Python Based GPS System

    Nothing against Raspberry Pi (I use it for other precision ag tasks myself) but what do you mean with the full flat PC problem? If you wanted to, AgOpenGPS runs on a Windows tablet that is hardly any larger than as large a display you wanted to have.

    Agco/Topcon agi 4 receiver for sale

    One is on sale at Agriaffaires but it comes with the C1000 display and is probably as expensive as a new one from AGCO. What sort of accuracy are you after, EGNOS or RTK?

    Beginners guide to guidance

    How come Trimble would help with AOG when we need the AOG forum to get help for many Trimble related questions (like compatibility with other brands)? The AOG wiki is quite outdated unfortunately: http://agopengps.gh-ortner.com/doku.php#agopengps_dokuwiki You read relevant topics from their...

    DIY RTK networks to mainstream receiver/displays

    Better to try to discuss these issues at the forum. There are many experts on board even if not many as experienced as Pheasant Surprise. Is your Trimble receiver unlocked for RTK? The unlock costs likely more than a complete AgOpenGPS system although I understand AOG is not an option at this...

    DIY RTK networks to mainstream receiver/displays

    No problem to use NTRIP with DIY RTK base stations.

    Topcon agi4 pinout

    What happens on the Fendt screen now? Does it not load further? What did you expect to see, definitely not the native Fendt VarioGuide screen but a more limited application on a virtual terminal. I have activated the virtual terminal mode on an Auto-Guide receiver on a setup that normally works...

    Topcon agi4 pinout

    Absolutely crazy to use a different physical pinout. Very useful to know that they are different. Need to try to find some wiring diagrams to compare Fendt, MF and Topcon.

    Topcon agi4 pinout

    I don't think the Topcon AGI-4 and Fendt VarioGuide have any HW differences like the connectors. If I remember right, Robt used to install many AGI-4 receivers on different brands using the Isobus mode. You might want to ask Robt even if he is not in this exact business any more. AGI-4 should...

    Topcon agi4 pinout

    Perhaps the attached diagram covers the main AGI-4 connector?

    Topcon agi4 pinout

    I have it. Got it from another member of this forum, he preferred to remain unknown and I think it is better if I forward the information only privately. Perhaps someone else is willing to post it on the forum. Or are you after some specific pins? Could just list them. EDIT: seems I have...

    You did not. Sorry about raising that topic when quoting your post. The comment was supposed to be generic but did not work after a quote from another member.

    Please define "no problems"? I'm sure you manage with SF1 when you say so. So do many farmers manage without SF1, without any auto-steer systems. If you only use SF1, you must keep watching after drift, not only when starting the field but also during the work. I'd consider that a significant...

    john deere gps

    I admit I'm also writing RTK everywhere repeatedly but I don't agree with the "not much better" claim. But farmers have different views, different accuracy expectations and some are very happy with the less accurate options. I'm one who cannot understand how anyone can accept anything less than...

    Base station to N-trip

    Do I remember right that 2G was discontinued in Australia soon after 3G got coverage? At my place 2G is the only system with true countrywide coverage, 3G is being discontinued. I have 3G activated on our AGI-4 modem but it connects with 2G. 4G has pretty good coverage but I'm not aware of any...

    Base station to N-trip

    Interesting findings peachmelba. Have you followed the RTK correction signal age indicator? If the age is 1 second or so, all is good irrespective of the signal level (radio or cellular). I have also observed some odd behaviour with our AGCO branded AGI-4 receivers. I've concluded the issue...
