North Central Iowa
I have an Insight system and have been using SMS Advanced here for several years and have been completely satisfied with AgLeader. I am anxiously awaiting their SMS Mobile product and interested in how that will work out. According to the information on their website it looks like it's the ideal solution for the other stuff that you want to do w/o investing in another Insight. Right now I use an HP iPaq handheld running a program called HGIS. HGIS is a simple easy to use, no frills software that can be used for collecting GPS data. It can run on any desktop/laptop system with Windows as well as a handheld PC running Windows PocketPC. The cost is relatively low too. Their website is www.starpal.com and has a listing of dealers that sell it. It looks like your in NC Iowa which is where I'm from (Iowa Falls). I know AgVantage FS is a dealer for them. It's worth checking out.
I don't run FarmWorks so I honestly cannot comment on them, but other posts on this sight always seems very positive and they seem like they have a great product. I'll let others comment on them.
