Steering in RGT

After updating RGT, I was reading about the new steering function. Am I to understand that one cannot use RGT without using the steering function?

It’s explained here:

So technically it’s optional, but NOT steering is never going to be optimal (at least in current iteration).

I tested steering out on launch day and I personally thought it was pretty good, but plenty of people (but perhaps a smaller but louder subset) are grumpy about it (especially on Facebook).

I mostly do workouts in SYSTM app, RGT only for group rides about 1x per week that are usually rubber banded anyhow, so impact to me is minimal at this time.

Not steering should never be optimal.

But a rudimentary auto-steering mode as an alternative would at least make it acceptable.

I filed a case to propose optional auto-steering with steering decisions every 5 seconds. Then rather than dangling out in the wind as currently happens, a rider would eventually move over to get in line.

One challenge is presently if you steer into someone you can push them aside, We wouldn’t want auto-steerers doing that.
