Operate Guidance Systems Safely
Do not use guidance systems on roadways. Always turn
off (disable) guidance systems before entering a roadway.
Do not attempt to turn on (activate) a guidance system
while transporting on a roadway.
Guidance systems are intended to aid the operator in
performing field operations more efficiently. The operator
is always responsible for the machine path.
Guidance Systems include any application that automates
vehicle steering. This includes, but may not be limited to,
AutoTrac, iGuide, iTEC Pro, ATU, and RowSense.
To prevent injury to the operator and bystanders:
• Never get on or off a moving vehicle.
• Verify the machine, implement, and guidance system
•
•
•
•
are set up correctly. If using iTEC Pro, verify accurate
boundaries have been defined.
Remain alert and pay attention to the surrounding
environment.
Take control of the steering wheel, when necessary, to
avoid field hazards, bystanders, equipment, or other
obstacles.
Stop operation if poor visibility conditions impair your
ability to operate the machine or identify people or
obstacles in the machine path.
Consider field conditions, visibility, and vehicle
configuration when selecting vehicle speed.
JS56696,0000970 ­19­10MAY11­1/1
Use Seat Belt Properly
Use a seat belt when you operate with a roll­over
protective structure (ROPS) or cab to minimize chance of
injury from an accident such as an overturn.
Replace entire seat belt if mounting hardware, buckle,
belt, or retractor show signs of damage.
Inspect seat belt and mounting hardware at least
once a year. Look for signs of loose hardware or belt
damage, such as cuts, fraying, extreme or unusual wear,
discoloration, or abrasion. Replace only with replacement
parts approved for your machine. See your John Deere
dealer.
TS205 —UN—23AUG88
Do not use a seat belt if operating without a ROPS or cab.

Theory of Operation
Theory of Operation
Surface Water Pro is a two modular program—basic and
advanced. Surface Water Pro (basic program) is designed
for users to create levees and develop basic ditches
in their fields. Surface Water Pro Plus is an advanced
ditching program that generates a “best fit drain”. Surface
Water Pro Plus calculates the most effective drain in a field
while moving the least amount of soil. This information
is generated from vertical GPS signals calculated from
StarFire 3000 or StarFire iTC receivers. Surface Water
Pro Plus requires both a machine and implement receiver
and cannot operate with just an implement receiver.
Levee applications require John Deere RTK, and ditching
requires either SF2 or RTK signal. For greater accuracy,
we highly recommend the RTK solution.
NOTE: For best accuracy, recalibrate benchmark after
power cycling the quick survey and absolute base
station. When starting up the base station, the
point of reference could shift slightly, so for the
high­accuracy user, consider recalibrating.
Operating with an absolute survey base station
reduces the need for benchmarking. In quick
survey mode, anytime the base is moved or
power is cycled, another calibration is required
for high accuracy users.
Surface Water Pro features available on the GS3 display
and our Apex Desktop Software provide value by offering
ways to manage your topographic data better and ensure
optimum water distribution for crop production. Apex
Surface Water Pro features allow you to unload your GS3
survey data to generate Depression, Flow Direction, and
Drainage maps utilizing GSDNet. You can also manage
your Ditch and Levee Tracks from year to year by editing
cut, slope, or drop of fall. Additionally, layering your
ditch or levee tracks over your yield data displays your
results from the work you completed. See your local John
Deere Dealer or visit our website www.StellarSupport.com
to learn more about these additional features for your
Surface Water Pro program.
Reprogram receivers (Surface Water Pro Plus) at the
vehicle receiver location. Each receiver must be updated
individually every time a software update is available
[3.20D or older]. You cannot have both receivers attached
to the wiring harness when reprogramming.
IMPORTANT: A StarFire iTC receiver, or newer, is
required for Surface Water Pro.
John Deere implement mounts must be used
because they reduce vibration and minimize
hardware failures. Vibration mounts help
minimize hardware failures over time, especially
in ditching applications.
Surface Water Pro Plus does not support an
Implement Receiver Only configuration. Do
not run ditching with an implement receiver
only—both a Machine & Implement receiver
must be used to operate that software.
Record ditches from HIGH TO LOW elevation.
Cut ditches in either direction.
Surface Water Pro and Pro Plus Survey
function is NOT compatible with Swath Control
Pro. Do not use the survey function in
conjunction with Swath Control Pro.
To ensure highest system accuracy, do not operate
Surface Water Pro and Pro Plus outside a ONE
MILE radius of the Base Station.
Surface Water Pro and Pro Plus is NOT
compatible with iGuide Do not use in
conjunction with iGuide.

Machine Turn Radius—How sharp the machine can
turn without an implement attached and without applying
brake pressure. The turn radius is half the diameter as
measured at the center of the rear axle of a row crop
tractor, and the pivot point on tracks and 4WD tractors.
Example: 8030 wheel tractors have a minimum turn
radius of 6.1—6.7 m (20—22 ft). Choose a number to
start with and change as needed for accuracy.

PC11405 —UN—15OCT08
Implement Offsets—Used to define the actual implement
position relative to the tractor. This is important for
ensuring the implement is lined up to the field at the end
of turns and in determining where the implement is for
the Minimize Skips and Minimize Overlaps feature (see
Change Settings on Machine tab).
• A) In­line distance from connection point to front of

•
•
implement. On pull­type implements, think of this as the
tongue. For more precision, it is actually the dimension
from the pinbolt to the front side of where the work gets
done (front ranks of field cultivator, seed drop point on a
planter).
B) Working Length of the implement. On ground
engagement tools, this is the distance from the front
rank of sweeps or points to the rear rank. Refer to
implement manufacturer’s Operator’s Manual for this
value.
C) Lateral distance from connection point to control point
of implement. This is the lateral distance from the center
of the tractor to the center of the implement which will
be 0.0 for most common implements. This dimension is
used to alert the operator to potential collisions. This is
critical for proper end­turn performance and may need
to be adjusted.
D) In­line distance from connection point to control
point of implement. In many cases, this distance will be
from the connection point to the carrying wheels. For
proper turns, measure this distance with implement at
the height it typically will be at while turning.
NOTE: These dimensions may need to be adjusted
for fine­tuning performance in the field.
IMPORTANT: Ensure vertical distance (D) is measured
from the GPS receiver to the ground when the
implement is in the FULLY RAISED position.
Implement Offsets
A—In­line distance from
connection point to front of
implement.
B—In­line distance from front

Remember: Always measure to the exact
same place on the receiver when measuring
(that is, top, middle, and others.).
NOTE: For a rotary ditcher, dimension (C) refers to
the distance from the receiver to the cutting
edge. On a rotary ditcher the cutting edge is the
bottom of the paddle wheel, since this contacts
the soil first. This dimension could be adjusted
depending on individual requirements.

overlap for tillage or spraying, or to account for some
GPS drift, you may choose to make the Track Spacing
somewhat less than the Implement Width.
Physical Width—The actual width of the entire implement
when being used in the field when the implement is raised.
It is sometimes larger than Implement Width.
Using a planter as an example, the marker arms and
blades are wider than the working width. This width
needs to be entered if markers are not used, or are used
and completely folded on the ends. If markers are only
partially folded during turns, enter this larger dimension.
Implement width may come from controller on
select controllers such as SeedStar.
In some cases, a higher degree of precision can be
achieved for track spacing when track spacing is
entered in by rows instead of feet. More decimal
places are used in the track spacing calculation
when entered in by rows versus the three decimal
places allowed when entered by feet.
Defining Implement Width and Track Spacing.
Implement width and track spacing can be defined two
ways: enter the working width of the implement, or enter
the number of rows and the row spacing. To toggle
between these two, select the m (ft)/(rows) button.

between the implement and an impassable
boundary. The operator still needs to be aware
of potential collisions if there are times the
implement is wider than the dimension entered
(e.g. marker arm lowered). If markers are used
in the field, add the width of both markers to
give ultimate alarms of possible intersections.
NOTE: As a buffer to avoid obstacles, additional Physical
Width may be added to the implement to compensate
for several things, one of these being GPS drift.

How to Survey a Field
• Flatter fields — a track spacing of 15 m (50 ft.)
Surface Water Pro provides a Survey tab for the purpose
of performing a field survey. When a survey is performed,
the RCD (GS3) creates a survey file for the field that
contains a collection of data points. Each point represents
a specific latitude and longitude position within the field for
which an elevation value is stored.
•
The data collected can be valuable to create informational
maps. Any maps created from this data is only as good
as the quality of the data that creates it. In order to create
quality maps from your field survey data, be sure to
perform your field survey to the highest quality. As a start,
please observe the following guidelines as a minimum for
performing a field survey.
1. Use the correct differential correction for your
application. It is recommended an RTK correction
be used for the highest accuracy and quality survey
data. An SF2 correction is allowed for surveying your
fields, but only after consulting your dealer to see if
it is right for your application. An RTK correction is
always utilized for flat to rolling field terrain. Using
an inappropriate differential correction for collecting
elevation data leads to inaccurate maps.
2. Make the first pass very close to the exterior field
boundary, when collecting survey data, to ensure
sufficient data around the perimeter of the field. Make
the second pass around the field boundary but slightly
offset inward from the first pass. Offset the second
pass approximately 15 m (50 ft.).
3. Conducting a thorough survey can be done by
setting up straight track lines and parallel tracking
off them through the field. Set up straight track
lines with intervals depending on the field being
surveyed.
• Fields with significant elevation changes and slopes
— track spacing of 7.5—15 m (25—50 ft.) is
recommended.
is
recommended.
Flat to precision leveled ground — a track spacing of
15—30 m (50—100 ft.).
Do not exceed 50 m (164 ft.) track spacing for
surveying purposes.
4. Two forms of Survey recording types are available:
• Distance Base—ideal for low speed surveys and
consistently spaced at user­defined distances.
• Time Based—suited to higher speed surveying and
the distance between the points varies with the
speed at which the survey is recorded.
5. Ensure that the entire field has been covered. Do not
skip parts of the field because they are inaccessible
due to wet or muddy conditions; you are in a hurry;
you think you do not have time to finish properly. This
has a negative impact on the quality of your maps
generated from your collected data. It is important to
cover the entire field.
6. It is also a good idea to survey the bottom of existing
ditches within the field, and at a minimum ditches with
measurable width and depth. Utilizing parallel tracking
with straight track can cause the user to miss areas
of interest for surveying, for example the bottom of
a main ditch which can have measurable width and
depth.
Survey Mode is designed to allow an operator to collect
elevation and position data as a separate operation. From
this data, topographical information can be created and
displayed. The accuracy level while surveying determines
the accuracy of the topographical maps. Elevation
data points can also be obtained for log files created
while performing field operations such as planting and
combining.
NOTE: Survey Mode is not allowed with Swath Control Pro.

Blade height is incorrect.
Symptom
Problem
Solution
Displayed blade height does not
match actual blade height.
Offset C or D had an incorrect
measurement during ditch track
recording.
Measure all offsets as instructed in
Operator’s Manual.
Ditch or levee depth or height does
not match desired height/depth.
Offset C should be the exact height of
the receiver when implement is in the
fully raised position.
Offset D should be the height of the
blade when the implement is in the
fully raised position.
Ensure that offsets are measured
according to how the machine is used.
for example if ditch track is recorded
with scraper blade skimming the
ground, set up offset measurements
to reflect that in offsets C = offset D.

Problem
Solution

Cannot get a valid solution from Best Fit Drain.
Symptom
Problem
Solution
Best Fit Drain does not return a
valid solution for a drain design.
Minimum and Maximum slope are not
set low and high enough respectively,
in other words the range is not wide
enough.
Set Minimum and Maximum slope to
lowest and highest allowable levels to

best fit drain.
The ditch track may have been
recorded from low elevation to high
elevation, and best fit drain is looking
for a solution to make water run uphill.
If ditch track was recorded from low
elevation to high elevation best fit
drain is attempting to find a solution to
make water run uphill. Record ditch
from the highest elevation to lowest
elevation.
Drain Map shows and upward swale(vertical) at end
of drain track.
Symptom
Problem
Solution
Recorded drain design has a
vertical rise or uplift at the end of
the ditch track.
Ditch track stop point was recorded
while receiver was not at the lowest
point of elevation on the ditch track.
When ending at ditch track at a point
where the water drains, ensure that
the implement receiver is stopped and
recording is finalized with the receiver
at the lowest point of the ditch track.
In other words, if the ditch track is
recorded traveling downhill finalize
recording BEFORE proceeding up
any incline from the ditch drain.
Vertical guidance appears after Machine starts to
AutoTrac. Implement is still active after AutoTrac
shuts off at the end of a track.
Symptom
Problem
Solution
Vertical guidance bar does not
shows correction at same time or
position that AutoTrac is engaged.
While implement is still active or
engaged AutoTrac guidance is lost.
AutoTrac is engaged and AutoTrac
guidance is present before the
implement height guidance is
available.
Ditch track was recorded in one
direction and Ditch was cut in the
opposite direction. AutoTrac guidance
is based on location of the Machine
receiver and Implement height
Guidance is based on the location of
the Implement Receiver. If track was
recorded driving one direction and cut
in the opposite, the distance between
the receivers is the distance driven
without guidance from either AutoTrac
or Implement height depending on
direction of travel in relation to the
direction of the recorded pass.
Ditch track was recorded using
machine receiver as source.
Implement height guidance is active
when the implement receiver is over
the track recorded by the machine
receiver.
Cut the ditch track in the same
direction that the track was recorded
in.
If it is not feasible or practical to
record and cut or pull in the same
direction, machine begins to AutoTrac
before implement requires ground
engagement, and Autotrac guidance
is lost before the end of the track or
before the implement height guidance
ends.
Machine begins to AutoTrac
