G2 nodeling question

If you have to do modeling on the G2 I don't understand why?? I almost never flip the scope from one side of the meridian to the next,,
I don't see an additional alignment command,, just alignment and synchronize...

that basically lets you build a model using software that does not know anything about the special "align" command.
you don't need to do modeling; i never do. i just use astrotortilla to solve and sync, iteratively, until the target is close enough to the center.
G2 has separate models for east and west of the meridian. i'm not sure if the modeling affects tracking but if it does then i suppose it switches between the east model and the west model while pointing at a position that crosses the meridian.
