    egnos is poor in our experience - good enough for boom shut of etc but not really something to steer

    best free signal is JD SF1 and that is good enough to steer something like a sprayer

    I set my Egnos at 24m and no misses yet. Set 4m drill at 4m and no misses but have to nudge slightly if you leave field overnight.

    Does this have a hill compensation ,or would you still struggle in valleys or slopes??

    Sat in a Fendt with topcon auto steer using egos the other day. The tractor stood for 15 mins and then would not pick up the previous track. I guess it had shifted by 2-3 metres in that time.
    When it was working it matched up the cultivator quite well though, but I would not use it for drilling.
