Looking for some advice on which simple GPS guidance system to go for.

Livestock farm all in grass or brassica break crop so only needing a basic one. Fert applications, grassland spraying and mowing.

Ezi guide 250
i was chatting a dealer not too long ago about said unit, he was saying that the ez guide 500 was a better unit that could be built on iirc, its more accurate and more of an all rounder, i know its dearer and like the op its something i wouldn't mind but its more of a luxury than anything else for me, still tho, if i was going down that route id be more inclined to be buying the 500 even tho its ott for what id want but its more accurate im told and if i want a gps then i want one with some degree of that.

The EZ-guide 500 has been out of production for at least 7 years.
