The AUTO-GUIDE Satellite Navigation System is a steer-assist feature that automatically guides the agriculture vehicle along a path established by GPS (Global Positioning System). The system steers the vehicle electronically, so operator steering corrections are not required while the system is engaged.Auto-Guide uses sub-metre, decimetre and centimetre (USA only) accuracy to provide straight lines, while the operator is simply required to turn the machine at headlands.Operators are consequently less fatigued and work more efficiently into the night, or in low visibility situations, with reduced skips and overlaps - resulting in increased efficiency and economic savings.In addition, repeatability or Controlled Traffic eliminates guess rows and reduces widespread compaction, leading to environmental savings.
