This was on the monitor, havent checked it with a tape yet. But when we were doing the calibrations, the one where you mark the center of the drawbar then turn around, it was dead on.
RTX is not RTK, Ill agree on that, but it doesnt have the cost either. I may upgrade someday, my system is unlocked to RTK, but for right now, the price and the accuracy Ive seen so far, Im not sure its really worth it for what I do.
If you're already unlocked to RTK it doesn't cost that much to get setup with Digi Farm. I think its something like $850 for their blue tooth Beacon (to use an I phone or I pad to input the correction into the screen) and $750/year for the subscription.
$750/year for RTK vs $350/year for Rangepoint is an easy choice for me but then again I was thoroughly unimpressed with Rangepoint the year that we used it for planting.
