Subject one:

I operate on 400 acres of row crop and have a small herd of cattle.  I want a simple GPS system that will assist me in spraying and dry fertilizer applications.  What type of GPS should I have?

Subject two:

I operate on 5000 acres of row crop.  I want to be able to strip till.  I live in a remote area that has very spotty cell coverage.  What type of GPS should I have?

Subject three:

I operate 1000 acres of rolling dryland row crop.  I want to get the best signal for the money, but I am on a budget.  My 66 year old dad still helps on the farm, so I need a stable platform to operate with.  What GPS should I have?
