Outback GPS Guidance uses advanced digital technology. It's dependable and extremely accurate. All it takes to run the Outback S-Lite is approximately 12 volts DC (1 amp).


Outback S-Lite is available with WAAS and e-Dif correction. Both work fantastic for guidance. The GPS and correction signals come from satellites so there are no black-out areas. WAAS is available in most of North America and is free. E-Dif, while not quite as accurate or repeatable, can keep you going in the event the WAAS system goes down.

To do straight guidance, press "Straight Guidance" button. After showing the Outback S-Lite where to start and which direction to go, it takes over and begins guiding on perfectly straight, parallel passes spaced exactly the width entered during setup.
In straight mode, the passes are predefined. Even if the driver gets off on one pass, the mistake won't be repeated on the next pass. The operator can do straight passes in any order, skip some and come back if desired. As the driver moves from one pass to the next, guidance snaps to the next pass automatically.

To switch to contour guidance, press the "Contour Guidance" button, Unlike straight guidance, no predetermined lines are established. Contour Guidance guides only off the "last pass". So on the first pass, the Outback S-Lite isn't guiding at all, just recording movements. Once the driver turns around or comes close to a previous pass, it immediately begins guiding along that pass. The Outback S-Lite will guide from any previous pass no matter if it was done in straight or contour mode.

"Time for Lunch!" - Oh those details. So we need to leave the field for some reason. Just press the "Stop Guidance" button and then select "Return Here". This saves the job and the last point. The driver will be able to guide back to the last point and then resume the job with everything in memory just like it was left.
Then when the job is finished press the "Stop Guidance" button. Then choose "Erase Memory". The memory will be erased and the Outback S-Lite is ready for the next job.

The Steering Guide looks ahead. Unlike a light bar, it provides heading information rather than course deviation. It's true steering guidance. Match the nose heading of the tractor to the Steering Guide and you're set. This "look ahead" steer instruction is much easier and more accurate than a light bar and makes anyone a better driver.

The Outback S-Lite unit mounts right behind and above the steering wheel. Choose a place on the cab window, wipe with a damp cloth and mount the Outback S-Lite with a twist of the vacuum pump. The bracket can be positioned or rotated in almost any configuration desired and even mounts on curved glass.
The magnetic, slim line antenna for the S-Lite unit mounts to the top of the cab. This is a great mount for quick installation and for the occasional low branch. A metal plate is provided which adheres permanently to the fiberglass shell. No holes need to be drilled. (See photos.)
