Beacon v3.0 by DigiFarm
Seamlessly stream RTK data into any receiver (including John Deere SF3000) without the need for cables. Simply plug the Beacon v3.0 into your receiver, program your login information into the DigiFarm app on your tablet, and hit connect. Within seconds you will be streaming RTK data directly to your receiver. It’s that simple!
The Beacon v3.0 is a ruggedized device that enables a wireless Bluetooth connection between GPS/GNSS receiver and a Bluetooth enabled tablet. The DigiFarm NTRIP app supports the iPad, Android and Windows devices. This bridge allows RTK corrections to be passed through the smart device, eliminating the need for additional data plans, radios, or costly RTK base stations.
The Beacon v3.0 is the industry’s first and ONLY Bluetooth device to be MFi (Apple) certified to stream RTK data using a cellular-capable iPad to all major brands of GPS rovers. Because it’s certified by Apple, we are able to use high power class 1 Bluetooth to optimize communication performance between the Beacon and iPad. Devices that haven’t been through this certification run the risk of limited bandwidth, interrupted data flow, and reduced operating range.
