Yup last year i dug my oldezguide gps light bar off a dusty shelf and it did work and i did use it for a couple hours on a minor job.
And yup things are not going to change just because my shorts are in a wad over crooked JD.
My worry is that if the old legacy signals that drive the original WAAS gps units that we have both mentioned go away then the cost to get something newer for a small farmer just gets astronomical.
If you read my response to wtw below it looks like the legacy signals from the gps sats will last to about 2029 i will be over 70 years old by then but still hope to be farming.
Seams that the new GPS 3 system goes active in about 4 years or so i believe but certainly could be wrong on that. The cheat box the neighbor bought from canada to get his ITC's to work mention about 2024 as a possible drop dead date.
