    Storing and transferring AB lines/boundries

    I currently store all my AB lines and boundries on gatekeeper and can transfer to different machines from there. I am moving away from gatekeeper now so am looking for another solution to do this. Any ideas? TIA

    Field IQ switching

    We have an FM750 screen with base station RTK, this is connected to a Field IQ. Often, once the headland run has been done and an AB line set, the auto switching on turns on too late. I've been through the settings and they seem to be correct, the funny thing is that, if I put in a new AB line...

    Which is best, lime dust or lime granules

    Wondering is there any difference between lime dust from a quarry or lime granules putting it onto grazing pasture Granules would seem better as its dust free at application time.

    AB lines / boundaries

    We shall soon be looking at a new sp sprayer. Currently running a Rogator with AGCO / Topcon X30. All my AB lines and boundaries are in the screen. Ideally my next sprayer will have Trimble, can I move the lines and boundaries between the two? BB

    Trimble GFX AB lines to Gatekeeper/Case

    Is it possible to transfer guidance patterns from Trimble GFX to Case 700 screens via Gatekeeper? I've tried data transfer from GFX then importing but Gatekeeper won't find anything. The GFX isn't listed in Gatekeeper but I've successfully exported AB lines to the GFX using the FMX/CMX profile...

    From Self propelled, to trailed, back to Self propelled sprayer

    Curious to know if anyone has gone from self propelled sprayer, to trailed, and then back to self propelled and been pleased they did. This does not need to be a comparison thread discussing the merits of each. I went from a self propelled, to a 28m trailed with larger tank on a 200hp tractor...

    Can anyone explain in simple terms the different types of GPS available, price etc that would make it possible to spray accurately. As I said in another thread, tried a cheap thing about 8 years ago which was dreadful and haven't looked since. Cheers

    Field boundaries from X35 to C3000, is it possible...?

    Run both these displays, the tractor equipped with the C3000 was purchased more recently and I have transferred, implements, fields and ab lines to the C3000 but not managed the field boundaries. Im aware the agco screen is not the same league as a X35 so it's maybe not possible? Both systems...
