ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Leica Geosystems announced it will release the Leica iNEX, a full-function mapping and guidance display with a large, color touch-screen, this spring. The Leica iNEX is a truly versatile solution that can be fully integrated with the Leica mojoRTK auto-steer system to offer advanced functionality, or purchased as a stand-alone guidance system for use with most GPS receivers.
With real-time mapping to show exactly where the vehicle has been working and Virtual Road view to display the line of steering, the Leica iNEX provides an accurate visual representation of every application. The display is also fitted with field data management software to store multiple vehicle setups and record data for all fields across the farm, which can easily be transferred back to the office.
In addition to AB Parallel guidance, the iNEX comes standard with A+ Heading, and Adaptive Curve guidance options and unlimited storage for all guidance points and waylines, providing customers with the information they need for repeatability year to year.
"Combining mapping, data management, and auto-section control technology in the iNEX display with the Leica mojoRTK has given us the opportunity to reach more of the market with the tools they need to save on input costs right now," said Trevor Mecham, North American business manager for Leica's Agriculture Group. "We remain committed to building tools and technology that are easy to use and fit the needs of U.S. farmers."
To ensure that customers only pay for the features they want and need, the Leica iNEX comes with a suite of standard guidance options, but offers optional upgrades. Those producers who require advanced guidance options or auto-section control can add just the options they need. Plus, when used with Leica's mojoRTK, the iNEX can be upgraded remotely at any time via Leica Geosystems' unique remote service and support tool - Virtual Wrench(TM).
Upgrade options for the iNEX include three advanced guidance options - Pivots, Contours and Replay. Replay is a guidance option unique to the iNEX that allows users to "replay" advanced guidance patterns on the most unique fields.
Additionally, auto-section control can be added to the iNEX display providing automatic on/off for spraying and planting applications.
The Leica iNEX mapping and guidance display retails at $4,995 and is available from Leica's network of premium resellers. To learn more visit www.mojoRTK.com.
