I got along well with OmniStar XP for several years on the planter tractor. An OmniStar HP (higher performance, higher price) arrangement was available but I did not utilize it. A few years ago, several in my area complained that OmniStar didn't seem to be working as well as it had in the past. I continued to get along quite well that year although I did have a yet unsolved mystery in one field.
I was using Ag Leader for steering and application situations in various tractors/sprayers. I got a different planter tractor about that time. I was advised to go with an Integra at that time and use GeoSteer. Later I traded the Integra and GeoSteer in on a program and went with an Ag Leader package consisting of an InCommand 1200, GPS 6500 and SteerCommand. This uses TerraStar for correction which is a similar arrangement but different company than OmniStar. By similar I mean that I need to purchase a TerraStar subscription either for a short term or yearly basis like I did with Omnistar.
This GPS uses the GLONASS satellites as well as the U.S. ones. This has worked very well.
