Minimum and Maximum Speeds

You are ultimately responsible for the safe operation of your vehicle. Wheelman will disengage autosteering under the following speeds, as detected by the GPS receiver:

  • Minimum speed of 1.0 miles/h (1.6 km/h) for non-RTK GNSS
  • Maximum speed of 12.4 miles/h (20.0 km/h) for non-RTK GNSS
  • Autosteering Sensitivity settings will also limit how fast your tractor can autosteer. The Sensitivity value is normally set around 7, but different vehicles with different implements may require a different value. If going too fast, Wheelman will disengage autosteering, per the following table.

    Speed (Miles per Hour)Maximum Sensitivity
    Below 620
    6 — 910
    Above 97

    Speed (Kilometers per Hour)Maximum Sensitivity
