The Trimble AgGPS Autopilot system offers automated steering with repeatable pass-to-pass accuracies of less than 1 inch. Autopilot safely drives a rig faster and straighter, reducing operator stress while improving profit throughout the season. It's easier to do strip tillage or to sidedress fertilizer with minimal crop damage. In the fall, Autopilot perfectly rips straight strips of fertilizer. Users can return in the spring and effortlessly plant precisely on the strips, all without row markers. Autopilot uses a specialized navigation controller to work on slopes as well as on level ground, even when cultivating.
