AMES, IOWA, August 26, 2013 – Growers looking for a simple and affordable precision farming display now have an entry-level solution, thanks to the new Compass™ display from Ag Leader Technology, Inc.

“The Compass display was designed for growers who want a display to use primarily for guidance,” says Matt Leinen, Product Manager. “With a built-in lightbar, the Compass display provides on-screen guidance and coverage mapping that allows operators to improve pass-to-pass accuracy and easily track where they have been in the field, reducing costly gaps and overlaps.”

Leinen adds the Compass display is simple to operate and set up guidance operations. “The user doesn’t need to know how to set up field information within the display to operate, with the new event feature they can simply create a new event each time they enter a field and go.”

The key features of the Compass display include:

  • Compact design with built-in lightbar
  • 7-inch color touchscreen
  • Built-in manual guidance Combine with OnTrac2+™ assisted steering, ParaDyme® or GeoSteer® automated steering systems for high-end guidance
