When you first use your Atlas correction (Atlas Broad-Acre or Row-Crop), you will want to power on the Rebel with the A222 attached, a clear view of the sky, and allow 10 to 30 minutes for the Atlas correction to become fully converged.
Atlas Broad-Acre takes approximately 10 minutes to fully converge.
Atlas Row-Crop takes approximately 30 minutes to fully converge.
The Auto Seed feature allows to “seed” the GNSS position using ATLAS L-Band service based on a previously known position.
Once Atlas is converged, if you have "AutoSeed" turned ON, the convergence time is a lot less if you follow the below instructions:
- Park machine with view of open sky and turn off Rebel system
- Come back to machine after an indefinite amount of time (i.e. lunch break, next day or longer)
- Turn on Rebel system before moving the machine
- ATLAS solution is available almost immediate once L-Band messages are available => no wait for convergence of service
- Resume operation
This should also work if you turn the Rebel back on and let Atlas converge, in the same spot you powered down the Rebel (i.e. shut the Rebel off outside of shed, then pull vehicle inside the shed. Drive vehicle back to same spot Rebel was powered down last, and power on Rebel).
If vehicle is moved while Rebel is powered down, and Rebel is powered back up in a different location, Atlas will need to re-converge and will take 10 to 30 minutes.
