What is the Whirl™ app about and how does it work with Wheelman®?

The Whirl™ Autosteering App is the brains inside your Wheelman® device. Once set up, you can use the Whirl™ App or the built-in dashboard to operate your Wheelman® and autosteer your vehicle.

The Whirl™ App is required to set up and update your Wheelman®. Before you install Wheelman®, be sure to download the Whirl™ App on your mobile device and sign in with the username and password you used when you purchased your Wheelman®.

How do I install Wheelman® and how long does it take?

Install the device yourself in just a couple hours. Our customized kits have everything included and don’t require any special tools.

 

Where can I get the Whirl™ Autosteering App?

The Whirl™ app is available for both Android and iOS devices and can be found here: Google Play or iOS

 

Does Wheelman® work with articulated / 4WD equipment?

Yes! Wheelman® now supports a variety of articulated / 4WD equipment useful for pulling heavy implements like those used in spring and fall tillage.  Check to see if your make and model are available here.

 

Why does Wheelman® cost less than other autosteering technologies?

Our autosteering system is designed for family farmers. Many farmers say autosteering is too expensive, so we've designed Wheelman® to meet family farmers' needs. We've removed the complexity for farmers so they can install Wheelman® with no dealer and no subscription. 

 

What type of farms will Wheelman® work on?

We have ranchers and crop farmers using Wheelman® for everything from daily chores such as feeding cattle to seasonal crop activities such as tilling, planting and spraying.  Wheelman® works on any size farm but was designed for farms with 250-2,000 acres. As one Wheelman® user put it "the uses are up to your imagination"

Will Wheelman® work on my tractor for tillage and spraying?

Yes! Wheelman® can autosteer your tractor for pull behind tillage, disking and spraying. 

What kind of antenna is it?

There are 2 antenna types:

  • The standard Smart Antenna uses WAAS GPS signals to help guide your vehicle and does not require any subscription.

  • The HPX-200 antenna also uses satellite based corrections, but with much better accuracy.  To use this high accuracy mode, it requires a subscription to the HPX-10 satellite correction service.  For the seasons when you don't require high accuracy, no subscription is needed to use the HPX-200 with the standard WAAS service.

 

Are all components waterproof?

Your Wheelman® unit is water and dust resistant.

 

Is a smart phone or tablet required in the cab while it's running?

After your initial calibration, the unit can function by using the dashboard.  So, it is not required to keep your mobile device in the cab for operation. However, your mobile device will be needed for any changes or updates to your settings on the Whirl™ App.

 

What paths can Wheelman® autosteer?

Wheelman® can autosteer straight, contour, pivot and A+ paths. We’re adding new features all the time to the free Whirl™ app used to control your Wheelman®.

 

How do you keep Wheelman® up to date?

We keep your Wheelman® up to date automatically.  The free Whirl™ mobile app downloads updates wirelessly and automatically updates your Wheelman®. Make sure your mobile device (phone or tablet) is running the latest Whirl™ version so you can take advantage of its updated features. 

 

Will Wheelman® let me adjust how autosteering works on my vehicle?

With just the initial calibration, Wheelman® will usually steer your vehicle accurately and smoothly.  To fine-tune your performance for specific implements, challenging terrain, or different speeds, we make it simple to adjust sensitivity, backlash, and angle of attack parameters.
