$2,250.00 AUD (Ex GST)
LOW COST GPS GUIDANCE SOLUTION
The G6 Farmnavigator is a GPS navigator dedicated to intelligent agriculture. It’s practical and easy to use thanks to the 4.8” touch screen and smart graphic interface.
With Parallel, Contour & Round guidance the G6 Farmnavigator makes your job faster and more precise. It avoids waste of products, reduces costs and operator fatigue increasing productivity and efficiency.
Save your jobs and fields and export the data on Google earth to have everything under control.
In Parallel Guidance mode, the Farmnavigator creates parallel runlines on the screen along which you can drive. Press A to start and B to end, the AB guidance line will then be drawn.
In the Contour Tracking mode, you can create the first runline line in a curved field, by pressing A to start and B to end, the runline will be replicated over the whole field.
ROUND AND ROUND MODE
By setting the round and around guide lines you can create concentric lines starting from the field’s perimeter. Press A, then start driving along the perimeter and press B when it is completed. The software will replicate the concentric lines to the centre of the field.
SIMPLE & EASY
The Farmnavigator G6’s easy to use icon based menu makes navigating easy. With easy to read pictures and descriptions anyone can use the unit with minimal training & guidance experience.
To calculate the perimeter of a field you are working on, just touch the Measure button to start and touch it again to close the measurement. The perimeter and area will be saved in the Job file.
During navigation, you can save a mark point to signal obstacles or soil sample positions. The mark points will also be saved in the job file.
According to set runlines, the Lightbar will show the driver if and how much the vehicle is off track so adjustments can be made at any time.
When you start a new job, all its data (perimeter, area, treated area, obstacles, timing, maximum DOP (Satellites) and maximum speed) will be saved in a database. The job can be paused and restarted at any moment. You can see a data sheet for each job and you can export the database so that you can view it in Google Earth.
The G6 Farmnavigator calculates the area that has already been treated. Thanks to the virtual spray boom commander it helps saving chemical products, reducing costs and minimising the environmental impact of your operations.
You can set up the number of spray boom sections (up to 15 sections) and their width. After setting the sections you will see on the display which spray boom section has to be switched off to avoid overlapping. If the boom section is over an area that has already been treated, the section will be highlighted on the screen to warn that it has to be switched off, vice versa it will show when a section has to be opened again.
These warnings are very useful when making a U turn, headlands or when trying to avoid an obstacle.
The Virtual Boom section commander works in parallel mode, contour and Tramline mode!
G6 Farmnavigator works on every field and can be used in different vehicles. It’s 100% portable with the vehicle window suction mount & magnetic dock.
