Various tracking options are available with the Generation 4 AutoTrac™ guidance system, allowing you to adjust your guidance lines accordingly as you maneuver throughout different field patterns. Swap track provides you with the ability to quickly switch guidance tracks as you work through a field’s varying geographic conditions. Gen 4 AutoTrac offers the following guidance line types:
- Straight tracks
When working in a field that allows for straight guidance lines, you are able to create an initial straight line. Once the track has been defined, all subsequent track lines in the field are created parallel to each other at the defined track spacing distance.
Subsequent passes are identical to the first pass
Identical subsequent passes
- Curve tracks
When working on terrain that does not allow for straight lines to be used, such as rolling hills or contours, curve track mode enables you to follow the curvature of your guidance lines. AutoTrac provides you with the following curve types:
- Adaptive curves allow you to record a manually driven curved path
- A/B curves allow you to drive a curved line in the field with two end points
- Circle tracks
Designed for fields with a center pivot, the Gen 4 AutoTrac activation allows you to create concentric circle guidance lines by either driving the circle or by entering latitude and longitude coordinates.
- Boundary fill tracks
By creating a guidance line that is ½ track spacing inward from the exterior boundary of the field, you are provided with a quick and easy way to get started with the initial passes around the field. This allows you to create guidance lines along fence lines and exterior boundaries inward until a regular guidance line is selected for use throughout the rest of the field.
NOTE: This tracking method is intended for use with exterior passes and not as a one-line solution for the entire field. It requires a boundary used for creation to be present in the display for the boundary fill pattern to be used. If the boundary is deleted, the guidance line will be deleted as well unless selected as current track.
