Streamlined workflows and new mobile applications can increase operator productivity while leveraging powerful Connected Farm™ solutions that offer valuable farm management functionality through an operating system that is designed for connectivity. Growers will also have access to third-party mobile applications on the TMX-2050 display, providing them with localized solutions for their specific farming tasks, and all without ever leaving the tractor cab.

“The TMX-2050 display provides growers with an environment they are already familiar with since it uses the same Android-based platform used by many mobile devices today,” said Erik Ehn, Smart Machines business area director of Trimble’s Agriculture Division. “The display’s intuitive and familiar workflows enable users to more efficiently complete their tasks, while also providing a choice of applications so they can select the one that best meets their work needs. Growers are able to customize the display screen with applications that are most important to their workflow, which provides further ease of use and convenience.”

Operators can choose the display application that addresses their requirements best—Trimble FmX® Plus or the Precision-IQ™ application. FmX Plus leverages the same familiar workflows and menus of the Trimble® FmX integrated display, while taking advantage of the latest advancements in hardware, processing speed and field connectivity of the TMX-2050 display. Precision-IQ provides a graphics-rich and intuitive workflow designed specially on the TMX-2050 display for today’s leading grower.

The display also includes Trimble’s Connected Farm Scout, Fleet, Productivity, Operator, and Irrigate applications for conducting field scouting and mapping activities, managing a machine fleet, determining operator and vehicle productivity, or monitoring and controlling irrigators from inside the tractor cab. Also available on the display is the Connected Farm dashboard, which provides easy access in one central location to key information impacting farming operations such as rainfall totals, weather forecasts, commodity tracking, planting coverage, aerial imaging, irrigation monitoring and control, and more. Some of these Connected Farm applications require additional purchases of hardware, data plans and service subscriptions.
