Manual – Guidance

Perfect for lower input farming systems.

Manual guidance or lightbar systems provide visual guidance for the driver to follow, but do not control the steering wheel as in auto-steer systems. They are ideal for situations where lower levels of precision are required such as fertilising grassland, where there is not a requirement for higher levels of GNSS positioning accuracy.

A lightbar system typically consists of just a GNSS receiver (e.g. Topcon SGR-1) for signal reception and in-cab screen (e.g. Topcon X14) for information display.
