its not likely that there is a broken connection because the electronics on these tractors is so advanced it should give you a trouble code right way. guidance shouldn't resume automatic if it lost signal or signal dropped. Is it possible that the combination of the tower and landscape is blocking your GPS signal? have you been in other open fields and have the same issue?
