Updates Bring Exciting New Features to the GPS 2500B Base Station!

When Ag Leader introduced the GPS 2500B base station it was excellent in field operations involving the GPS 2500, like tiling or OnTrac2+ systems. Ag Leader dealers and growers wanted the success of the GPS 2500B to use in field operations with the ParaDyme or GeoSteer because they were interested in using GLONASS or the Quick Survey feature. However, GeoSteer and ParaDyme used a different brand of radio than 2500B. Unfortunately, it is impossible for two brands of radio to communicate. It’s like the base station is trying to talk to the rover in a language the rover doesn't understand. In the RTK radio world, the base and rover radio need to match to communicate. That is why Ag Leader is proud to announce GPS 2500B updates that allow external radios to match your operation.
