Top con weaving

My deutz has topcon autosteer which I have used all year without any real problem. Thinking back to early spring, flat rolling seing the diff lock, sometimes the tractor would start weaving. Not really important on that job.
Well, now I am drilling, by and large it is fine, but sometimes (normally in a damp bit if ground and the tractor is « bogging” a bit) the tractor starts weaving in across the line and never gets better itself, just worse and worse, so I get her under control, steering, and Re engage.
Is this just an issue of being too sensitive or not sensitive enough? Also, with this top con I don’t know how to adjust 🙄, with the green star this stuff is obvious 🤔

You might get more help if you could tell which Topcon it is? If it is an X30 or a branded copy, you can press the question mark on the screen to see what each button does (if not obvious from the icon).

Perhaps an IMU issue like someone else recently had with another brand?

I could see if I can improve it with this screen, I think. Except, I can’t get this screen:banghead:

Do you actually have something like the Imonitor3 screen? Looks like a Deutz branded Topcon screen and it might have a reduced set of menus from the original Topcon X35. Still odd if it would not have steering sensitivity settings.

Are you sure? I’m sure it does. If you are in uk. Dave Jefferson at Deutz uk is very good in these screens

Despite an average growing year for most crops, many growers managed to go above and beyond their predicted max yields, with Lincolnshire grower Tim Lamyman taking the top spots for his wheat yields and his world record breaking winter barley yield.

The highest cereal and oilseed yields achieved at harvest 2021 were announced at this year’s Yield Enhancement Network (YEN) Awards on Wednesday 24th November at the Croptec Show. With award presentations by Tom Bradshaw, Vice President of NFU, 24 farms took home the evening’s top awards for highest yield and highest potential yield achieved for wheat, winter and spring barley, oats, and oilseed. The 2021 winners came from all corners of the UK, as well as from as far afield as Finland and New Zealand.
