Virtual spray boom commander
G6 Farmnavigator calculates the area that has already been treated and thanks to the virtual spray boom commander helps you saving chemical products, reducing costs and minimizing the environmental impact of your operations. You can set up the number of spray boom sections (up to 15 sections) and their length. After setting the sections you will see on the display which spray boom section has to be switched off to avoid overlapping. If the boom section is over an area that has already been treated, the section will be highlighted on the screen to warn that it has to be switched off, vice versa it will show when a section has to be opened again. This warnings are very useful when making a U turn or when trying to avoid an obstacle. The Virtual Boom section commander works in parallel mode, contour and Tramline mode!
Guiding lines: Parallel and Contour
You can easily set the tramlines for your operations choosing among parallel, contour guidelines or existing tramlines.
In the Parallel Tracking mode, G6 Farmnavigator creates parallel tramlines on the screen along which you can drive. Press A to start and B to end: on the display the AB segment will be traced together with its parallel segments.
In the Contour Tracking mode, you can create the first tramline in a curved field, by pressing A to start and B to end, then this tramline will be replicated over the whole field.
Existing Tramlines Tracking
In fields with existing tramlines or planted with row crops, you can switch the Farmnavigator to the Tramline mode. In this mode there is no navigation bar, but you can see the real time green track and it can be used to work with the virtual sprayboom switch.
According to the set tramlines, the Lightbar will show the driver if and how much the vehicle is off the track so that he can adjust the trajectory at any time.
Perimeter and Area Measurement
To calculate the perimeter of a field you are working on, just touch the Measure button to start and touch it again to close the measurement. The perimeter and area will be saved in the Job file.
During the navigation, you can save a mark point to signal obstacles or soil sample positions. The mark points will be saved in the job file.
When you start a new job, all its data (perimeter, area, treated area, obstacles, timing, maximum DOP and maximum speed) will be saved in a database. The job can be paused and estarted at any moment. You can see a data sheet for each job and you can export the database in the Google Maps™ format so that you can view it in Google Maps™ or Google Earth™.
Rear view camera
The G6 Farmnavigator can be connected to an USB Rear View Camera. No need for extra displays as the camera uses the 4.8” display of G6 Farmnavigator If you need to check the functioning of the machine or to view behind a trailor just click on the touch screen the Camera button and the live video will appear on the display.
