AGPS would like to announce the release of AGPS-Guide2D. This software targets backhoes, excavators, and tile stringing vehicles. Guide2D displays information such as guidance grids, maps, or as built data from a AGPS-PipePro system. This allows the operator of the plow to quickly and easily show other operators in the field where he wants starting holes dug or tile strung for following laterals. The on-screen lightbar and ability to import aerial images helps guide the operator to the lateral lines or to existing tile.
Guide2D can use Wiifi for the data link and a WAAS receiver for sub-meter positioning. It is generally run on a laptop mounted in the cab of a backhoe, tractor, or pickup.
