Use it to manage operator and equipment performance, plus monitor real-time data to make the most informed decisions possible for the most positive impact to your bottom line. Learn more about AFS Connect’s Key Features by looking below or calling us today.
RTK+ Cellular Guidance
Deliver guidance correction to reliable sub-inch accuracy from year-to-year using AFS Connect hardware. Cellular RTK guidance correction signals alleviate problems associated with traditional radio delivered RTK such as line-of-sight issues, including hills, valleys, trees, buildings, or other structures. This extends the distance of travel from a cellular base while maintaining sub-inch accuracy. Seamless connectivity reduces application overlaps or skips, improves field efficiency, and allows for more accurate input placement for fertilizer and herbicides. This helps achieve consistency, even in the most narrow rows, and keeps tire tracks down to a minimum to reduce compaction.
Keep track of your equipment like you never have before. Pinpoint the exact location of each machine and set up custom reports that utilize geofences, curfews, and more to help you better manage your equipment. All of this is available with the Case IH AFS Connect Fleet Management tool.

It's bold. It's crisp. It's easy to read. The AFS Connect dashboard provides a clear display of machine health based on parameters such as engine speed, hydraulics, oil temperature, fuel level, and more.
"Time. That's the only thing you can't buy. Instead of me driving 20 miles one way to fix a problem and 20 miles back to get back to what I was doing, I'll look it up in three minutes on an iPad or computer and say, 'Well, this is your problem,' and it's done."
