RTK+ Cellular Guidance
Delivers guidance correction to a reliable sub-inch accuracy from year-to-year using AFS Connect hardware. Cellular RTK guidance correction signals alleviate problems associated with traditional radio delivered RTK such as line-of-sight issues, including hills, valleys, trees, buildings or other structures — extending your distance of travel from a cellular base while maintaining sub-inch accuracy. Seamless connectivity reduces application overlaps and skips, improves field efficiency and allows for more accurate placement of inputs, such as fertilizer and herbicides. This helps achieve repeatability — even in the most narrow rows — and keep tire tracks on the same path to reduce compaction.
Pinpoints the exact location of each machine and through custom reports you can setup geofences, curfews and more.
Machine Dashboard Monitoring
Allows you to view real-time machine parameters from a remote location. Monitor engine speed, oil temperature, coolant temperature and level, hydraulic oil temperature and pressure, fuel and more.

View Graphs and Reports
Shows area worked, yield average, flow average, moisture average and more.
It's a real-world scenario, but not a best-case one: The producer observes that often his machines spend time waiting in the field to unload or waiting for a fuel truck. It squanders valuable time from the limited windows that every producer experiences.
"Time. That's the only thing you can't buy. Instead of me driving 20 miles one way to fix a problem and 20 miles back to get back to what I was doing, I'll look it up in three minutes on an iPad or computer and say, 'Well, this is your problem,' and it's done."

It's bold. It's crisp. It's easy to read. The AFS Connect dashboard provides a clear display of machine health parameters such as engine speed, hydraulics, oil temperature, fuel level and more.
"Just simplicity - that's the key to efficiency. The more user-friendly we make the technology, the better and the more efficient everyone will be able to be."

With the intuitive AFS Connect dashboard, you see a real-time view of what is happening on the machine. The user-friendly graphics provide you with key equipment parameters, such as:
- Standard engine, oil and fuel information for all makes
- Propretary yield, flow and moisture information for supported Case IH models
- Manager alerts for maintenance and error codes
Ease of Use
All of these features in a format that's easy to understand, so you can manage your operation more efficiently than ever before. You can't get that with any other system.
AFS Connect lets you monitor anything with power, from field machines to road vehicles. It can help you save time, save fuel, cut costs and improve overall efficiency. And you can access it from wherever you're sitting - from the kitchen table to a pickup truck.
"Collecting the data, that's helpful. To be able to look at each machine and know how many hours are on it and when services are coming instead of depending on somebody to physically keep up with that...that would be really useful."
