Some questions - I have searched but have not been able to find the answers - sorry if they have already been asked/answered.
I have my Autosteer PCB set up - its a version 1 board.
I have connected a toggle switch to the Steer connector and a spring switch to the imp connector on the PCB. The Autosteer PCB is connected to my laptop via USB cable to the Audrino Nano on the PCB.
I have uploaded the Autosteer Code to the Nano.
With AgOpenGPS running on my laptop and the Settings | Ports screen open I can see a figure in the "From Auto Steer" change 3 to 2 if I activate the spring switch (Work Switch) and from 3 to 1 if I activate the Steer Switch. This changes to 0 if both the Work Switch and the Steer Switch are activated. This suggests that comms between the PCB and AgOpenGPS are working.
However when I am in the main screen things seem to be different.
If I activate the work switch the btnSectionOffAutoOn toggles between on and off with the switch but painting does not occur. Is this by design? Shouldn't the work switch turn painting on and off?
With the Autosteer switch nothing seems to happen. The btnAutoSteer remains unchanged.
What have I done wrong?
Also, when attempting to simulator none of the keyboard functions seem to work:
L - Rest
K - Speed up
J - Stop
H - slow down
B . turn left
M - turn right
N - Zero steering
What am I doing wrong here?
