Yep! Got it all mounted up and tucked all the cables away nice and neat. I really wish they could minimize the wires for the direct command though... that is quite the rats nest!
I have talked with Ag Leader and it appears our tractor has the Deluxe VRS seat which has the air cylinder mounted on the right side of the seat that interferes with the bracket they sent out. They are in the process of updating to a different bracket and will send them out if needed. I simply modified a few things and mounted it in place of the old nav2.
I got it calibrated and tested and seems to work!
Should get it out in the field on the chisel plow tomorrow!
I had a rocker switch wired into the autopilot for a remote engage. I will be using this again once Ag Leader comes out with the next firmware update and the wiring for the GCU... at least that is what my dealer told me. So for now I will use the onscreen button... yuck!
