Trimble introduces its next-generation displays for precision agriculture applications – the Trimble GFX-1060 and GFX-1260 displays.

Featuring an Android-based operating system and enhanced processing power for controlling and executing in-field work, the GFX-1060 is a 10-inch (25.6 centimeters) display and the new flagship GFX-1260 is a 12-inch (30.5 centimeters) display.

Compatible with NAV-500 and NAV-900 GNSS guidance controllers

Both displays for precision agriculture are compatible with the Trimble NAV-500 and NAV-900 Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) guidance controllers. When paired with the NAV-900, farmers can achieve increased accuracy out of the box by leveraging Trimble’s leading CenterPoint RTX correction service, which is included for the first year. According to Trimble CenterPoint RTX delivers up to 1-inch (2.5 centimeters) accuracy and provides an easy way to experience repeatable results to reduce overlap, input costs and fuel, which can positively impact a farmer’s bottom line and drive sustainability.

New displays for precision agriculture ideal systems for a mixed fleet

Trimble says the high-resolution touchscreen displays for precision agriculture are ideal systems for farmers with a mixed fleet and are compatible with over 10,000 vehicle models across more than 40 equipment brands. The displays are ISOBUS-compatible, which allows one display or terminal to control ISOBUS implements, regardless of manufacturer. It standardizes the control settings, reduces downtime and minimizes installation and interface challenges, simplifying data exchange and machine control.

With more power, speed and reliability, these displays are to enable farmers to easily setup and configure their equipment through Trimble’s Precision-IQ field software, including manual guidance, assisted and automated steering, application controls, mapping and data logging, equipment profiles as well as camera feeds from attached inputs and other internet-based apps.

Combined, these features are to make it easier for farmers to manage complex workflows by adding accuracy and efficiency across operations, and can save time and increase productivity. In addition, farmers and operators can quickly and easily share data across the farm.

Running the Precision-IQ software, the Trimble GFX-1060 and GFX-1260 displays for precision agriculture feature:

  • Flexible connectivity across the farm through integrated wireless options including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and BroadR-Reach high-speed communications
  • Seamless communication from tractor to farm equipment through ISOBUS compatibility, the Field-IQ crop input control system, and Trimble Universal Variable Rate (TUVR) or serial rate control
  • Ability to connect to GNSS correction services including Trimble RTX technology, CenterPoint RTK and CenterPoint VRS through the NAV-900 controller
  • Compatibility with all Trimble guidance systems as well as CAN bus support for both assisted and automated steering
  • Interoperability with Trimble Ag Software to support data management needs across the farming ecosystem
  • Data sharing across the farm with the optional AutoSync feature, allowing farm managers to remotely send Work Orders and ensure vehicles, implements and fieldwork are aligned and working properly

Availability

The Trimble GFX-1060 and GFX-1260 displays for precision agriculture are now available for order from the Trimble dealer and Vantage distribution networks. The Trimble NAV-500 and NAV-900 guidance controllers as well as the CenterPoint correction service are available now.

In 2019, we interviewed Hamish Wilkie, Trimble’s Sales Director for EMEA, CIS and Russia, about how Trimble moves to becoming a full precision farming service provider. According to Hamish Wilkie automisation needs to approached as a complete farming process in order to make a farmer’s work more efficient and make his life easier.
