Roy Bardole used this touch-screen computer and an antenna (not shown) to receive enhanced GPS signals for working corn and soybean acreage in Iowa. With the equipment, he could set a work area perimeter, instruct tractors and implements to steer automatically on either a straight or contoured path, and log data about the work accomplished.
