With manual edits, you can also direct vehicles around e.g residential areas.

The app can also take you directly to the next field, in fact even to a specific field entry point. also, other points of interest can be added, such as sugar beet piles, grain or forage. With the exact field boundaries on board, you can always start work immediately, confident that you are in the right field.
