The OutbackTM S3TM GPS guidance system features a high-resolution touch screen, multi-language support, and clear, easy-to-read job data and system status information in real time. The electronically integrated Outback Steering GuideTM uses GPS data and specific job details to display heading direction and provide guidance.
S3 accuracy and functionality is extended by using it in combination with an Outback GPS-assisted steering system (Outback eDriveTCTM, Outback VSiTM, or Outback eDriveXTM) and the Outback BaseLineXTM RTK base station. Once eDriveTC/eDriveVSi/ eDriveX is engaged it uses GPS technology to automatically steer the vehicle, resulting in more uniform treatments, extended hours of operation, and less driver skill required.
eDriveTC/eDriveVSi/eDriveX also correct for GPS position errors caused when driving on slopes in the terrain—essential for precision applications.
Outback S3 and eDriveTC/eDriveVSi/eDriveX combined with BaseLineX provide repeatable accuracy to within +/- 4 inches pass to pass. With BaseLineX, the minimum guidance speed is 0.25 m.p.h. and elevation is available as a display option on the S3.

It works for what it is made to do. Steering has issues.
