No issues with the CFX 750. I'm wanting to add auto steer to an 8420 that isn't steer ready. Plan on leaving the 750 in the tractor its in and having a 2nd system in the 8420. Not running any Field IQ either, strictly steering. That's one reason I was thinking of maybe going the Ag Leader route, because you can do SO MUCH with the InCommand 1200 display. Later on I might want to add electric meters or hydraulic downforce to planter and could keep it all on one display.
On the flip side, I feel like Trimble probably has the best steering systems available. I like the AutoPilot Motor Drive because its just as good as hydraulic steering but a lot easier to install. It can do NextSwath end-of-row turns and works in reverse (that would be super nice). Was thinking of maybe going with EZ Pilot Pro at first and maybe upgrading to APMD later. If I want the planter upgrades from above I could still go Ag Leader or Precision Planting. Id have 2 displays in cab but so what?
I really think I'm going to do another post and tell some more about my equipment situation as far as guidance technology applies to it. That may help everyone get a better idea of where I'm coming from.
