Are any of you losing your signal
We are using Trimble and John deer
The John deer system seems okay Been told it’s running on USA satellites I’m not sure about that?
But the Trimbles are horrendous problems losing signal all the time.
I’ve been told Trimble are using European satellites since we left Eu we have not got enough satellite in the UK Europe will not let us use them don’t know if this is a load of rubbish but we are interested . This has been going on since February
we got 3 John deer gps
and 5 Trimble gps
they can all be in the same field at the same time and Lose signal altogether or Working separately 60 miles apart and still lose signal is anyone having problems
