If I am understanding your question correctly, you are looking for a way to input map locations. If I am misunderstanding the question, I am happy to clarify. Please let me know.
- Your device has encoders (Genesis models)
- You have disabled the “ALWAYS POWER MOTORS” setting
- You have enabled “USE ENCODERS FOR POSITIONING”
It is possible to determine the X/Y/Z by moving the tool mount by hand to the place you wish to specify.
If you own a model that does not have encoders, you will need to move to the desired location manually from the UI for initial setup.
Once you are in the desired location, you can click the “USE CURRENT LOCATION” button when creating a tool slot. We don’t have a “PLANT CROP AT CURRENT LOCATION” button yet, but it would be easy to add to the next release. Please let us know if you think this would be useful.
Another option for adding plants to the map in precise locations (other than the GRID PLANTING feature) is to move the tool mount directly above the plant and then click the tool mount on the map when you have the “ADD CROP” menu open.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT FINE ADJUSTMENTS: Some users have mentioned that their garden is not perfectly flat, or that for some use cases the exact location of a slot/plant/point does not quite meet their needs. It is entirely possible to make temporary adjustments in these cases using the “OFFSET” property of the “MOVE TO” command. For example, if you don’t want to water your plant above/below a certain height. I’ve included a screenshot below.
Does this answer your question? Please let me know if it does or if you have suggestions that would make this process easier.
