When you are talking "slow" I assume you are talking about less than 1 MPH. At under 1 MPH the only system that will work is the autopilot or autopilot motor drive and has to have a steering potentiometer, not an autosense. At speeds above 1MPH any of the systems will work but the autopilot with a steering sensor will work much better. Your correction source is more likely to cause you issues at low speed as there will be some drift pass-to-pass unless you are on some type of RTK correction.

Most of this will depend on how much you are willing to tolerate. Will you put up with guess rows that vary 10-15 inches or are you looking for perfect, less than, 2" variation in the field. If you need less than 2" variation then you will need some kind of implement steering. If you are willing to have more variation in the field it will cost you less money, tighter tolerance = more money.

GFX750/ Nav 900 with Centerpoint RTX slow convergence unlock will cost $6700 + subscription each year
if RTK or RTK+ or COORS is available to you there is another $2500 unlock and either a radio $2800 or a modem $875. COORS is free, RTK+ is $850, DIGIfarm is $850 per year

EZ-Pilot pro for NAV-900 is $3200
unlock for 900 is $510

Platform kit for 6430 autopilot is around $4000
Nav III kit is $5400 No unlock needed for autopilot
For very low speeds the pot kit is about $1000 about the same as autosense
