Anyone know of a camera that's directly compatible with the '5 pin B code' expansion port on the above GPS? Or a readily available adaptor cable? Struggling to find anything googling, seems it's a different port to the previous generation.
Or is it a case of buying a male plug and making a cable to fit whatever camera I buy?
Would be great to hear if anyone's got a camera attached to theirs and how it works!

Cheers. Thanks for that. I've seen the multi cable 4 but it's about £150 or so? Hoping to find a cheaper way as it's just a camera I want to connect.

I spent ages looking in to it and finding pin outs to make my own loom was going to cost me nearly as much to make one so brought one from new Holland as was cheaper than Trimble

Ah, ok, fair enough, was thinking that might be the case, got to get it confirmed...will head to the NH dealer, got the screen/nav controller from them as was so much cheaper than Trimble.
What camera have you got plugged into yours, pleased with it?

Yeah, I see what you mean. I'm just looking for a camera on the end of the loader for better visibility attaching things though, so not when using GPS. Will look into separate displays though, given how expensive the cable seems to be!

Does it make sense to invest on something that blocks part of the GFX screen? A separate camera display costs almost nothing and is available all the time, equally the GFX display fully available for the functions it is built for.
It’s a bit of a backward step from the cfx where you could just hit a button at the side of the screen to activate the camera

I believe you will need both cables in order to run the camera: 114078 accessory cable and the 67259 power bus cable:

Thanks for the info - think I'll be going down the separate screen from eBay route given the prices!
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
