With regards to a cable for updating Smartrax, you'll need a cable from Raven part #115-0171-484. You can order this from Farm Works or from any Raven Dealer. Cost is $60.

With regards to using a John Deere SF2 GPS, it's been a while since I've dealt with this, but from what I remember the problem is the 5 hz output. I'm fairly certain that due to the slower output rate, Smartrax cuts the maximum speed in half (which makes it around 10 to 15 mph maximum speed). I do remember some discussions where Raven was talking about changing this. You may want to call their tech support group at 800-243-5435 as I know they could give you a better, more up to date answer.

With regards to a Raven update to decimeter accuracy, this would involve the following:

1. Replace your GPS with the new Raven 410 GPS with Omnistar HP. Price $5,195.
2. Adding the new Raven "Ehancer" which is a gyro which gives very accurate tilt readings (much more accurate than the Raven Tilt lightbar). Price $3,995

Let me know if you have any questions.
