    Have a green star 1800 display 3000 dome and auto track steering wheel. Works fine on the combine and tractor up to 5 MPH but useless any faster especially if ground is a uneven. Have tried all combinations of steering settings. Can any one else make it work at 7 MPH. Grateful for any advice.

    First thing i'd do is calibrate the terrain compensation on the receiver.

    Have you measured the offsets? Height of receiver above the ground is one of the more important ones. It's worth setting it up properly as it will make turning back into work much easier when you have all the tractor & implement measurements entered.

    As above, it is well worth doing the TCM calibration as this is for uneven ground. Sorry to ask the obvious, but is the antenna secure? Do you have very good cab suspension??

    All my gear is JD so it just plugs in & goes once the TCM & offsets are done. There's no reason why it shouldn't be steering accurately at over 15 kph. Do you have any correction signals? SF1, SF2 or just DGPS/EGNOS?

    Are you also using a steering wheel (without wheel angle sensor) or are your tractors equipped with a hydraulic steering valve (always with a wheel angle sensor), makes a big difference.

    What machine is it fitted to and what are for setting

    Thanks for your suggestions. Tractor has steering wheel, not hydraulic valves. Our screen does not have any way of calibrating terrain compensator.

    TCM calibration is in the receiver section not the steering.

    Yes, but you need to use the screen to calibrate it on a 4600, 2600 & 2630. I’ve never used an 1800 so cannot comment on how to do it.

    Oh... Yes..., you need a screen. Think the 1800 runs the same software as the GS3 Command Centre, so bottom right menu button the click on the receiver icon, then setup tab and Cal button the follow the on screen instructions. 20171011_181231.jpg

    It'll all be in the settings as long as the steering wheel is clamped up tight.

    I've used one for fertilizer before and went dead straight at speed a good friend of mine used one for mowing with triples for a few seasons and got on fine.

    I was taking a straight with our integrated system this morning to start a field a different way and on stubble with the drill and press up above 8 kmh it's all over the place but actually drilling sits fine at 14k

    Once you've got the TCM calibrated, in the ATU settings will be a way to alter the line sensitivity, tracking speed etc.
    Not sure whereabouts you find it on a 1800 screen.

    I've got the 1800 screen with the electric steering wheel thingy ,,,, taking time to get our heads around it with the sensitivity settings but doing some nice work now at 12 / 13 kph , although I haven't had any drilling show through yet
