center point rtx slow convergence only needs Omni unlock, you will need to wait until it is fully converged though to get the 2 inches they claim. could be 5 minutes could be 50 minutes. convergence times differ all around the us. cost $1650
centerpoint rtx fast convergence takes an rtk unlock but will startup fully converged immediately. cost $1850
digifarm subscription needs rtk unlock, subscription typically costs around $900. if your going to use a modem you will also need a data plan. if your going to use a beacon you connect it to your tablet or phone and use the data plan from that. no convergence time. digifarm is running a deal right now if you unlock a receiver from Omni to rtk they will give you a free year of rtk subscription i am told. haven't seen any info on it though. so to confirm you need a modem or a beacon, no radio. and a data plan with the modem if you go that route, and the beacon will use the data plan on the device you pair it to.
i have no idea if you will get away with you and a farmer doing a trimble whole farm. i am guessing your chances are reduced when talking about it on here.
