The "onboard computer" gets greater credence as manufacturers fine-tune the monitors they market for precision ag users. The new Outback MAX from Outback Guidance is designed to work with the company's eDriveX system with eTurns and features section and variable rate control. The high definition console can also be outfitted with an optional switch box and lightbar (shown) to create a centrally-located workstation.
The unit can accommodate up to four monitor cameras and with a data plan you can access weather and market information through an onboard browser. Suggested list price (monitor only) $5,995. For more information call (800) 247-3808 or visit www.outbackguidance.com.
