Lecia Geosystems Continues System Upgrades

Lecia Geosystems Continues System Upgrades
Addition of GLONASS system and upgrades for a number of tractor steering applications in the list.

A number of new features and support updates are rolling out from Leica Geosystems as the company competes in the precision agriculture market.

First, the company has linked the GLONASS satellite constellation system for its mojoMini equipment, adding 20 additional satellite signals to the standard GPS constellation for more reliable and consistent coverage.

Leica Geosystems' latest additions to its product line links the GLONASS satellite constellation to the Leica mojoMINI.

Leica Geosystems also announced support for Deere & Company's new R series AutoTrac Ready tractor models through the Leica mojo3D and mojoXact. It includes the following John Deere machines in the R series: 61, 62, 72, 82, 83, 83RT, 93R, 93RT, 94R, 94RT, 95R and 95RT. This provides a simple single cable installation offering a quick and easy aftermarket steering solution.

Also, a hydraulic kit is now available for the Valtra BT and BH models which are not typically fitted with auto steering equipment from the factory.
