AutoTrac SF1, a guidance product from John Deere, is a GPS system for those who don't require row-crop accuracy. The broad-acre system uses three components; the StarFire iTC SF1 receiver, the GreenStar display and a mobile processor with an AutoTrac SF1 key card. There is no subscription fee for the StarFire SF1 differential correction signal and the components can be moved to any AutoTrac-ready vehicle. John Deere also offers AutoTrac RTK, which uses satellite and land-based differential correction for sub-inch accuracy.

A LED light illuminates the sample and the included software allows photos to be edited or enhanced by the addition of labels and measurements. Other features include 4 micron resolution, 640×480 pixels, and a 7.5×10/1.8×2.55 mm viewable area.
