The AGI-4 is the industry’s first completely integrated steering solution that can simply and easily interface with many manufacturer’s “virtual terminals” (ISO11783). Features include multiple-constellation GNSS satellite reception, state-of-the-art inertial sensors, and full-terain compensation with superior line acquisition and holding capabililities. An all-in-one, modular design includes antenna, receiver, and steering controller in a single component offering upgradeability. The unit is standard with WAAS and EGNOS, and is easily upgradeable to 2cm accuracy with RTK radio options. NTRIP capability allows you to tap into existing reference networks via mobile phone connection (dependent on local availability) and uses existing data plans and infrastructure to minimize costs.
