New John Deere GPS can receive all types of satellites

Posted by Green Fun Store on 3/16/2011 to Current News/Events of John Deere
The newest global positioning system released by John Deere can now receive more types of satellite for service, according to Farmers Weekly Interactive.

The unit, which is called the StarFire 3000, uses both US and Russian Glonass signals, as well as a number of other types of satellites. For those that work in densely forested areas, this means improved signal quality and less interruption from being too close to trees or other large objects.

The StarFire 3000 also has a 3D terrain compensation module that helps to keep the vehicle on-track when being exposed to rough terrain or significant slopes. Like other Deere products released this year, the unit is compatible with all other existing company displays, according to the news source.

A new Access Manager component also allows owners to establish different operator access levels
to avoid the mistake of settings being accidentally changed while the vehicle is in operation. Standby mode is also a first for a Deere GPS system and dims the display so that it is not overly distracting at night.
