AgriBus-NAVI is a GPS/GNSS guidance app that supports the straight-line operation of agricultural machines and agricultural vehicles such as tractors, combine harvesters and self-propelled sprayers. By operating while checking the screen display, it is possible to carry out farming work straight and evenly spaced lines in large fields. As a result, it makes your farming work more efficient.
Features of this app
・You can use it immediately after installing it on your smartphone or tablet for free.
・You can check how much fertilizer and pesticides have been sprayed, and avoid over-duplication and duplication to save costs and improve efficiency.

This app is based on a software "Agricultural Vehicle Navigation Software for Field Operation" and a patent "JP-4572417-B2" developed by "NARO".
1) GPS/GNSS antenna
Although the built-in GPS will work with your smartphone/tablet, you can expect a dramatic improvement in efficiency by using an externally connected GPS/GNSS device that can obtain more accurate location information.
We recommend our original GPS/GNSS receiver "AgriBus-GMini" and "AgriBus-G +" optimized for AgriBus-NAVI.
[AgriBus-GMini]: Low-cost, palm-sized high-precision GPS / GNSS receiver. Sub meter class GPS/GNSS positioning is possible.
[AgriBus-G +]: High-order model ultra-high precision GPS/GNSS receiver compatible with auto-steer (automatic steering) and ISOBUS.
It has an Internet connection function, and can be connected to the GNSS correction information service on its own to use location information of several centimeters.
2) Mounting equipment
Using a commercially available vehicle-mounted device such as a RAM mount, set the smartphone/tablet to an agricultural vehicle such as a tractor.
3) Wiring equipment
・ Connection cable for commercially available smartphones and tablets (USB/USB-OTG cable)
・ GPS power supply / cable
・ USB power supply for vehicles
