Leica Adds Entry Level Guidance

Leica Adds Entry Level GuidanceThe new Leica mojoMINI 3D lightbar guidance system provides a new option for users looking for a cost-effective entry point into precision guidance.

The new Leica unit comes with the company’s SmartAg antenna and GLIDE technology for improved in-field accuracy. It also features a 4.3-inch touch-screen display with multiple guidance options, including AB parallel, A+ heading, contour and pivot guidance for use in many field types.

“The mojoMINI can be installed in minutes and is so versatile that growers can get daily use out of the display,” said Peter Bailey, product manager. The 3D display greatly reduces the training time for the operator while it increases in-field guidance accuracy over traditional LED lightbar systems, he asserts.

The on-road navigation software features voice command and lane assistance technology. The high-quality graphics, coupled with cutting-edge routing and direction-finding capabilities, allow users to get the most out of their hardware in the field or on the go. The Leica mojoMINI also includes a calculator feature for calculations on the go – whether crunching business numbers or mixing complex farm applications.

The unit was available for preview at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany, and will be released for pre-orders beginning in December 2009.

“We saw a lot of interest at Agritechnica from growers and resellers alike. This is going to be a great product to broaden our ag guidance platform,” said Rob Kiernan, global sales and marketing manager.

The Leica mojoMINI lightbar system complements the current line of mojo auto-steer products, including the Leica mojoGLIDE console with 6- to 8-inch (15- to 25-cm) pass-to-pass accuracy and the original Leica mojoRTK console with repeatable 2-inch (5 cm) accuracy.
