Hemisphere GPS Introduces Outback MAX With ConnX

Outback MAX

Hemisphere GPS has introduced Outback MAX with Outback ConnX — the next-generation Outback Guidance system that redefines simplicity in precision farming. Working seamlessly with Outback eDriveX with eTurns, the Outback MAX integrated display terminal provides a full array of features including section and variable rate control, Eclipse L1/L2 GPS and GLONASS guidance, and video support for up to four monitoring cameras.

Outback MAX also provides wireless connectivity via the Outback ConnX data management system to deliver real time data access and management that is imperative for modern farmers. ConnX provides seamless data transfer between the Outback MAX terminal, office, and service providers ensuring efficient, accurate decision making and farming operations. ConnX can automatically import and export data, engage customer service with remote control capability, and simplify connection to RTK correctors. ConnX is compatible with popular data platforms including AgJunction, AgVerdict, NutriScription HD, OptiGro, and Precision.Ag.

“Hemisphere GPS has established a new level of innovation with Outback MAX that will substantially improve the accessibility and effectiveness of automated guidance and application control,” says Kip Pendleton, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of Agriculture at Hemisphere GPS. “The highly functional yet simple design of Outback MAX combined with the seamless connectivity between the field, office, and service providers greatly enhance the value that farmers can realize from precision farming techniques.”

Building on the functionality of company’s successful, the feature-rich Outback S3, the Outback MAX adds a host of new features that make it the most powerful and intuitive Outback product yet. Outback MAX leads the way with simplicity in design and operation, a powerful mapping engine, excellent screen clarity, seamless connectivity, and a rugged design that can operate in rough environments — features that are critical to achieving the benefits of precision farming.

With a focus on simplicity, Outback MAX incorporates the ability to create shortcuts and favorites for the most commonly used tasks, facilitating a short learning curve with simple access to important features, getting farmers up and running quickly.

The visual clarity of the high-definition, 10.4 inch, highly responsive touchscreen leads to more consistent and precise farming applications even in direct sunlight or during the night. Outback MAX displays a multitude of information while leaving plenty of room to view field and machine progress. Farmers can take action more quickly regarding critical information such as tank volume, automated eTurns, and overriding control of the correct sections —l eading to better yields and reduced inputs through more effective and accurate application as well as improved safety.

The powerful Outback MAX mapping engine stacks imagery and data layers so farmers can visually confirm that their field operations are appropriate or adapt immediately to any changes. By relating real-time application data directly to existing or historical conditions, customers can confirm that applications are on target.

Outback MAX is compatible with eDriveX with eTurns, taking advantage of the most precise and feature rich automated steering available. With centimeter-level control and automatic turning at the end of each row, farmers benefit from consistently spaced rows with no overlaps and no skips, and reduced driver fatigue allowing them to work more hours in the field, especially when time is critical. Over 550 models of farm machinery are supported with custom-designed steering installation kits and model-specific, step-by-step installation instructions. Existing eDriveX users can upgrade capabilities without having to buy and install a completely new system.

The level of Outback MAX functionality can grow with farmers’ precision agriculture needs. For example, customers can add a lightbar, section and variable rate control, ConnX for connectivity, and upgrade the level of GNSS positioning.

Outback MAX is available now through Outback Guidance Centers and through Hemisphere GPS distributors worldwide. Outback Guidance Centers have received MAX certified training to assist growers with Outback Guidance precision solutions.
