Windows Alarm when comming to headland

Hi All,

As AgopenGps is working well, I sometime loose my attention to driving and am surprised comming to headland (luckily I was never sleeping yet :slight_smile:)

It would be nice if we could have an alarm ringing thru the tablet when headland is starting.

Best Regards,


Or… you could just set one of your uturn relays to power a buzzer.


I think he means a beep coming from your tablet. It should be fine if you can beep for an adjusted value in meters before hitting the headland and a beep if your on the headland (with your implement)

I was thinking about a buzzer, but as the tablet already equipped is, i thought it would be easier. And i guess it is a function that is usefull for all users.
If it is not possible i will put à buzzer.


What kind of distance away should it alarm?

It would be good to hear a beep at a certain distance of beep per second and accelerate as it approaches the line, as is the case with car parking sensors.

20 m is a good distance, it is the distance used at TRIMBLE and JOHN DEERE

I think we can default to 20m, but it should be adjustable value in settings as well. In U-Turn settings maybe?

Ya, but that would wake me up…


Add a “virtual relay” that plays the chime?
So everyone can customize it (and also use it for notification when the implement has to be lowered again).

In the DevelopmentOct branch is latest code to compile with uturn alarm.

@BrianTee I was also working on this.

Is there a standard way of tracking current feature development?

It almost seems that only 1 person at a time can develop AOG. winforms is absolutely terrible and is generally known to screw up if there are more then 1 incremental builds if any 2 are related. You know this stuff a lot better then me. Right now i’m working on a huge code change with guidance lines, IT is doubtful anyone can add anything until that is done. Doesn’t seem very efficient, but previously it has been a lot of problems.

Maybe you can open a pull request and label it as Work In Progress? I can take a look and see if we can tweak something as far as git is concerned to make merges easier.

I understand it’s less effort to make one larger pull request but if pull requests were segregated in scope it would be easier to merge together. Maybe the first thing a contributor does is open up a pull request for the feature that way we know what is actively being developed?

Boundary Alarms are already in AgOpenGPS. The development one, now the master as well.

New release as well as source on Master.

Is there a button to turn it off? If not, simple enough to change the file name if not needed. Or record a blank file.

I had a pull request that had alarms under uturn settings. You could turn the alarm on/off as well as set the alarm start distance to boundary. Would that be a viable solution?
