Does anyone else have a GPS black hole on one of their farms? I’m out digging and GPS went goofy on me in the exact same spot it did when I was putting anhydrous 2 weeks ago. The farm is wide open, not a tree for over a 1/4 mile, it’s on a slight slope.
Just using a 500 and EZ steer for tillage. I’ve noticed over the years, if I’m going to have GPS problems, it will likely happen in this field. The solution is always to shut it off and restart it and I’m usually good to go.
I should elaborate, when I say goofy, it says I’m on the AB line but it will turn the tractor off in another direction and take off that direction.
My only guess is that I’m about 2 miles south of a FAA control center for Minneapolis and the radio transmitters there might be doing it. But I have another field closer and don’t have that problem. Weird either way.
