From the SynScan Home Screen, you can save User Objects, either in Celestial format RA/Dec, or Terrestrial format Axis1/Axis2 (AZ/Alt). Also you can use the Utility function to get current position Information.
(red colored text are actual 'buttons' in the SynScan app)
Be mindful of which firmware you are using.
Firmware Version 3.14 is the current official Left Arm firmware. AZ Mode Only. Orientation of (0, 0) is North Level, with the small AZ clutch knob pointing North, Power Button pointing East, and Optics on left side of mount pointing North/Level at the horizon (horizontal dovetail).
Firmware Version 3.14 also currently comes in a Right Arm, AZ/EQ Dual Mode (testing purpose only). Orientation of (0, 0) is still North Level, with the small AZ clutch knob pointing South, Power Button pointing West, and Optics on right side of mount pointing North/Level at the horizon.
If you are getting oddly strange GoTo's while in AZ Mode or Alignment issues, I suggest you "Manually Sync" your mount. This is not an official procedure or designation, it's just what I personally call it. The process is simple. Save a (0, 0) User Object, slew to it, loosen both clutches and move your scope to the North/Level position and tighten the clutches. Reset Alignment from the Alignment screen and proceed with a North/Level, or alignment type of your choice.
For EQ Mode, imagine the above North Level position of the mount as I've described, tilting the mount forward/northward, so now your optics are pointing at the ground (at your latitude angle), still on the right side of the mount, with power button pointing west, and AZ clutch knob pointing at the celestial equator/meridian intersection to the south. You would slew your scope up(alt/dec) to point at Polaris (0, 90). I say SLEW meaning to make this movement using SynScan, motorized, with tight clutches (do not loosen and just manually move the scope to point at Polaris). I call this position (0, 90) "PA Start", because my PA routine using Sharpcap requires rotating the RA axis 90 degrees. My "PA Finish" saved position rotates the RA 90 degrees (90, 90) so that now the optics are "on top" of the mount still pointing at Polaris, power button facing the ground. This also means that the counterweight, if used, is pointing "down", in what is normally considered the "Home" position. Disclaimer: This (90, 90) position may actually be (-90, 90), or (270,90) but you will know when your optics are "on top" of the mount... trust me... it's the opposite of crashing your scope into the tripod...
If you are in EQ Mode you would Polar Align first (which aligns the EQ base physically), and then Star Alignment (which aligns the mounts internal model of the sky with the actual sky). Star Alignment does not require you to be in a "Home", or any, specific position (with the exception of the North/Level alignment routine for AZ mode, which says to start North and Level... ). It only really requires that the scope be pointing to where the mount thinks it is... hence the "Manual Sync" routine. (Slewing the mount to 0,0 sets the internal position, unclutch/move-north-level/clutch sets the external/actual position)
I hope this post isn't too confusing... I tried to strike a balance between too much and too little detail...
