Performance with an Aero 1530

Search Discussion Boards
Jim,
With regards to the Aero 1530 versus the iPaq, the main differences are that the iPaq has a color screen along with a faster processor and more memory. The faster processor and more memory won’t make a big difference unless you get into variable rate control. The only major advantage would be if you got Site Mate Scouting and you’ll want to load a background image. With Site Mate Scouting, you can take a map such as a yield map or soil type map and display it in the field with GPS. This allows you to navigate to low yielding spots, for example. However, you really need a color screen (with the iPaq) in order to do this. If your main objective is basic mapping (boundaries, tile lines, etc) or scouting or grid sampling, the 1530 should work just fine.

With regards to a cable, there are special “GPS to Aero” and “GPS to iPaq” cables that allow you to hook your GPS receiver to the handheld device. Most GPS consultants offer these. If you can’t find one, contact Premier Technologies at 219-337-5319.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
