Subject: RE: outback and j d guidance

You can try to import them into John Deere's Operations Center, and see if it will take them, then export them back out to your Deere display.
Another option is to make a book of headings. Write down the heading to each guidance line, then put them into the Deere display as you use them. They should remain available for use later as long as you're organized and use your field names correctly.
Just beware, Deere uses it's own special math formula to calculate those lines, where Outback will probably use something more like Trimble, Case and AgLeader will. In short, if you set a heading to 0 degrees, every pass will end at the north pole. I call this "True North." Most other systems use a "Parallel North" calculation. Others may call it Magnetic North, but that's a false statement. Your first pass will pass over the north pole, your next pass, if you have a 60 ft implement, will pass 60 feet to the left or right of the north pole. Here where I live, that difference will start to show within about 50 passes. Where you live in Canada, that line drift will show much more quickly than it will here where I live because you're closer to the North Pole.
