Trimble Adds EZ-Remote Joystick for Fingertip Control of Trimble In-Cab Agriculture Displays

BOONE, Iowa, Aug. 31 — (PRNewswire) — Trimble (Nasdaq: TRMB) announced today the new EZ-Remote™ joystick for improved operator efficiency and comfort in the tractor cab. The convenient accessory mounts quickly on virtually any tractor console.

The announcement was made today at the Farm Progress show, the nation's largest outdoor farm show.

Paired as an accessory to the Trimble FmX® integrated display, EZ-Guide® 500 display or EZ-Guide 250 display, the EZ-Remote joystick can improve operator reaction time and ergonomics, providing an even more convenient way to control a variety of functions from the cab. The EZ-Remote joystick is also compatible with the CFX-750™ display, Trimble's new 8-inch, touch screen display which offers affordable guidance, steering and precision agriculture capabilities.

Programmable, illuminated buttons on the joystick make it easy to both see and feel where control points are for rapid and effortless execution of tasks. The EZ-Remote joystick enhances a wide range of functions, from basic guidance to more advanced operations such as offsetting the scraper height in field leveling applications. Operators can experience fewer button miss-hits, less downtime and greater comfort.

"Trimble equipment has always been designed to help the operator in the cab be more effective and less fatigued," said Erik Arvesen, vice president and general manager for Trimble's Agriculture Division. "The EZ-Remote joystick is a continuation of that product design philosophy. In just a few minutes, operators can now connect the joystick to their Trimble GPS display for enhanced comfort and control during every working day in the field."

The EZ-Remote joystick ranges in price from US$149 to $199 MSRP, depending on cabling requirements. The EZ-Remote joystick is expected to be available in September 2010. Contact a local Trimble dealer at www.trimble.com/locator for more information.
