G'day I'm new, where do I begin?

G’day all, I just joined AOG. Where do I start?

At this time I’m looking to piece together a system that will allow A-B guidance, hydraulic auto steer and NMEA messages.

Any advice or links would be most appreciated.

Start with a GPS and a windows tablet. The Ardusimple F9P is the best supported.

Hi there,
I started recently as well. People on this forum are really helpfull. Look up: ‘starting with agopengps’ here on the discourse. I got a lot of helpful answers.

What is the discourse?

Thank you, that is great!

Do you have any suggestion as to the electronic components I will need for the auto steer and NMEA messages?

The discourse is this forum. Please start reading around here. In the beginning it’s so much to learn.

Have you tried the program in simulator? You can use any windows computer to do that.
Also read the manual you find it in the program, just click help.

Latest approved release is still 5.6.2 (02 not twenty) you find a link in the attached thread.
Remember to download both program and support folders and unzip.
You do not have to download source code.
Click on blue text:

Another hint is use the magnifying glass at top right, here on discourse. Combine more words to narrow down results :slight_smile:

Support folders have several schematics and pictures as inspiration.

And also follow the latest, just to see what many people are working on at the moment.

Great! Thank you!

I download the program and had a bit of a look around. I was trying to figure out what hardware components I will need so I can get them ordered in case of delays.
