Back to your request for comments:
1) mounting the GPS units.  
I suggest you try mounting one unit on the nose (up high to avoid the FEL frame) of the tractor and one on the Rollover protection frame.  This has the advantage of providing a longer axis, therefore any errors in GPS position reporting wont appear as a large tractor position error.  Taking this a step further mount another set of GPS units on the outer ends of the planter or implement.  Therefore having the best measure of tractor and implement.

2) Battery for Kill switch & Kill Switch
Why not use the on board tractor battery?
