Saint Joseph, Missouri
Right now we are running a trimble 750 with rtx and an ezsteer in the planter tractor. We also use an integra for planter monitor, liquid, seed, and clutch control. The planter tractor is being upgraded next year and it will have a jd auto steer valve on it. If I want to keep running the rtx can I get a trimble nav II and use that to drive the jd valve? I would really like to use the integra to do the auto steer because it would be one less step to go through to find my saved ab lines for each field, but from what I read geo steer and paradyme are the only way to control the jd valve through the integra and having one of those would be both more expensive and redundant as far as having 2 separate receivers and thats figuring I could even use the 750 as a gps source. So my second question: The only way I can use the integra for steering is to get a geosteer/paradyme and use that and whatever correction source level I buy for them and totally get rid of the 750?
