Westminster, Colo. — Trimble announced out of the box availability of an integrated Precise Point Positioning (PPP) solution for agriculture applications combining Trimble CenterPoint RTX and the Trimble NAV-900. This adds greater convenience for customers and a positioning solution that is ready to go, out-of-the-box with a complimentary one-year subscription that can easily be renewed through an annual subscription.

Always-on CenterPoint RTX corrections are now part of a comprehensive subscription solution that is activated within the GNSS receiver. Providing added convenience and cost savings for worldwide agriculture customers, this solution reduces the complexity of dealing with different suppliers, delivering an easier and more seamless way to receive accuracy levels of nearly two centimeters or better.

“This integrated solution gives customers the opportunity to easily see the return on investment of Trimble RTX without risk and features a subscription model that saves customers hassle, time and money,” said Olivier Casabianca, vice president, Trimble Positioning Services.

Included on the Trimble NAV-900 for one full year, this solution gives farmers worldwide the ability to use CenterPoint RTX in real-world conditions. CenterPoint RTX is available via paid subscription opt-in for continued use after the initial 365-day period.

“At Vantage America West, we are always looking for opportunities to help farmers take advantage of precision agriculture technologies,” said DeImna Heiken, business development, Vantage America West, a key distributor of Trimble Agriculture products in North America. “ CenterPoint RTX’s centimeter-level accuracy delivers a host of operational improvements. For instance, driving the sprayer in the same tracks each pass over the field reduces soil compaction in other areas of the field and leaves more stubble standing to capture snow in the winter and reduce wind erosion of our topsoil.”

CenterPoint RTX correction services enable farmers to quickly achieve RTK-level horizontal performance without a local base station, offering greater ease-of-use and freedom to choose how they obtain their corrections data—via satellite L-band or cellular IP—to best fit how and where they work. The corrections are available worldwide through use of GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BDS-III satellites.

With always-on accuracy, Trimble includes its 24/7 customer care and network monitoring to enable a better customer experience across the business.

Farmers who purchase a new Trimble NAV-900 guidance controller paired with a GFX display, including the new Trimble GFX-1060 and GFX-1260 displays, will receive a full year of activated CenterPoint RTX correction service.
