The low-reflection display improves readability and handling. The operation can be carried out both, either via the 12 soft-keys or via the switch areas on the touch display. In addition, there are three one-touch keys enabling the switchover between machine, GPS function and back to the main menu.
Also, just a finger swipe enables the operator to navigate through the operation menu. A configurable status bar along the top of the screen displays the chosen parameters and information tabs at all times, no matter which menu or submenu is active. Changes to the most important settings are easily accomplished, and any job data can be imported or exported. In addition, a practical mini-view display helps to quickly view the most important machine settings where it matters.
To enable the full utilization of the 8-inch multi-touch color display, the switch areas in the touch display appear or hide automatically. Via a proximity sensor located at the front of Amatron4, the screen detects a hand approaching for operation and so the 12 switch areas are shown. A light sensor in the product automatically changes the view, depending on the light conditions, between day and night modes and constantly matches the display brightness to ambient conditions.
To meet all demands, the company offers the potential to unlock a variety of fee-based software licenses. These include GPS-Switch basic or GPS-Switch pro automatic headland and part width section control, GPS-Maps&Doc documentation and job management software, GPS-Track parallel driving aid and Amacam for the use of a camera. These are already pre-installed so that no additional software is necessary.
Any of these applications can be initially tested free of charge for 50 hours. Particularly the documentation and job management function, GPS-Maps&Doc, has been thoroughly improved and it provides a practical-oriented operation enabling handling of jobs. As soon as tractor and machine are reversed, the optional reversing camera Amacam is automatically shown on the display.
