GPS theft

Oct 16, 2020 | 14:41 1 Had our GPS Reciever and display stolen last night. Called the dealer ship and they have no way of tracking the gps and Reciever. Had to replace it as we need that display to run our sectional control for are Nh3. For the small some of 21 thousand$ why the hell have no way of tracking this shit for that kind of$ also a warning to anyone else out there who leave tractor unattended in fields at night. Also looking for ideas to maybe put some sort of tracking device in are new display? Reply With Quote

  • blackpowder's Avatar Oct 16, 2020 | 18:38 11 Local Case dealer had 3 Nav controllers go missing this summer alone. Newer combines now have them external of the cab and at eye level. 30 seconds to remove at $11k retail.
    Actually now insurance wants them separately listed with ser #s.
    My question is who's buying the hot ones? Who needs them and can use them? Is it like KW tow hooks with a syndicate network?? I have suspicions. Reply With Quote
    Oct 16, 2020 | 18:44 12 Why can you buy a home computer for hundreds of dollars and this proprietary crap is worth thousands...even ten thousand. Guess you're paying for software more than hardware in the monitor and nodes.

    About CAD$850 for a set. That's what I use for centimeter RTK with my Agleader gear. Reply With Quote

    But here's my handicap.
    Instant over the phone or on site support with local RME. Low downtime.

    Oct 16, 2020 | 19:24 17 Theft is nearly every day occurrence in this area that absolutely no one will address... let’s worry about garbage from the US ... constantly. Meanwhile friends, neighbors , relatives and getting thieved almost daily .. but nope let’s bring up anything else with zero regards to Western Canadian farms to deflect real issues facing us daily ..... orange man bad Reply With Quote

    Agleader Integra. Ontrac2+ steering. Air cart and blockage on it. It's just the NMEA receiver supplying the position data. Section control and all that good stuff is from the Integra. My sprayer came with an outback system for steering and section control. It's ok. Swather and tractors have $300 RTK rovers each. Sc****r has one. Auto hydraulic control for the blade on a tablet. Accurate to the cm. That part was almost free. Keep pulling out the cheque book though. Those dealers need it for their palatial shops. Reply With Quote
    Oct 16, 2020 | 19:32 20 The deflection on real life issues here is sickening

    Oh but Trump tweeted this , or said that . And the solar output in Australia is great ... who gives a phuck really ??? When one lives in fear that something might get stolen or broke into every single night ??
    *** I don’t get it .

    Oh. The base unit at the shop sends corrections to the net. I use my phone in the cab to bluetooth correction data to the rover gps. No radios or line of sight to worry about. Cell dead zones more than 5 minutes or so might make it go to RTK Float. Might use a couple MB of data during the whole seeding season. All that is free. Reply With Quote
    Oct 16, 2020 | 19:38 22 I was told by a jd mechanic that they can't be tracked as well. I think it's easier for them to take $21000 from you than get in the middle of criminal investigation.
    I sold a jd tractor with 2600 to a guy but transferred my activation to my new tractor. It 2 phone calls and serial numbers and activation codes. If they are using your stolen 2630 they are either using it under your name or they have to phone in and give serial numbers etc to get switched to a different name (should easy to catch). Jd should be able to kill the activation at the least, making it worthless.
    Watch auctions for them as well.
    Did JD transfer your activation or sell you a new one? Reply With Quote

    Sorry furrow, I understand the frustration and I have no solution to that problem. I just am vehemently opposed to the gps tech screwing farmers get daily and took this chance to spout off on that topic. I lock my cabs at night with any equipment I have to leave on the field too. Luckily I've never been violated that way. Reply With Quote

  • Oct 16, 2020 | 19:43 24 Regardless I hope they catch the absolute losers who stole your GPS .
    Rural theft has gone crazy and absolutely no one will talk about it , why , because they think it’s insured and no one will pay ffs . We all pay in higher insurance rates . Ours has double the past few years because of the theft in this area .. great add that to the seed extortion and extra carbon tax ...... yup life on the farm so easy fml Reply With Quote

    so why wouldn't someone that knows this stuff start a business ?
    its not that easy for a lot of us Reply With Quote

    most never goes through insurance anyways , our pump and filter was a grand , not worth the claim Reply With Quote
    Oct 16, 2020 | 20:01 27 Yeah for a farm insurance policy still going to cost us 11 thousand by the time we pay deductible and lose are claims free discount. Insurance doesn't help the problem. Never had issues here ever until now with thefts. Jd has the unit that went missing flagged as stolen but will only work if someone come into dealership to get it fixed. Reply With Quote
    Oct 16, 2020 | 20:15 28 WTF, how much is your deductible and how big is your premium that it would cost 11 grand to file the claim.
    I guess it takes a while to get a full claims free premium discount back.

    Insurance, the Company loop hole industry. Seems there's always an angle. Reply With Quote
    Klause's Avatar Oct 16, 2020 | 20:49 29 Phone Deere NOC and remove your activations, and report it stolen.

    They can flag it in the BIM and then if somebody phones to reactivate it it'll be flagged


    also feel free to PM me the serial # if you have it in case somebody brings it to us for repair, if you'd like. Reply With Quote

  • Oct 19, 2020 | 09:53 30 I thought the technology in jd equip was the property of john deere. Maybe it is their loss and should replace it on their dime. Reply With Quote
