Hi guys. I am looking into auto steer and i was wondering how does it do in the hills for planting corn. I have to compensate for drift for the extreme side hills and i am wondering if it can compensate for the hills. I have absolutely no experience with it .

pretty sure all auto steers have gyros to automatically compensate for hills… I have trimble auto steer and seeded some very very hilly stuff this spring, it did pretty good some drift on the hills with extreme sideslopes but for the most part you don't see many misses..

Pretty much a non-issue in the hills. Even though not perfect all the time it's consistently better than 99.9% of all operators the majority of the time. Depends on your signal correction accuracy you choose as to how good it is. Our Deere RTK does better than I ever could do all day long.
x2 Deere RTK is amazing.

Only issue is sidredessing corn because the planter drifts downhill more than the sidedress rig does, so on extreme sidehills I hand steer or shift over 3"
