Think it's already looking good!
i'd focus without auto steer to keep it simple and working. can always add it later.
I've used agps and they always made you start at the low end vs the high end of the ditch. not sure why...suppose to identify negative slope situations?
1)being able to insert a preferred slope minimum would be beneficial (suppose 0 could be to create a flat surface?)
2)during the calculation of the cut path, an alert to pop up if it can not meet minimum slope preference
2A)option to override and accept cut path if minimum slope preference is not obtainable
2B)Have a few ditches that have 0 slope or small low spot in the middle of a run that is already lower than an outlet. Need to be able to bypass these situations and have a slope that will overlook these occurrences.
3)eventually tracking/labeling of ditches to each field?
3A)I think to speed up development this would not be needed.
4)a information box with estimated material to be removed.
4a)Nice to have an estimate how long it would take you to create a new ditch or estimate if its worth the time to drain a spot.
5)offset from "bottom of cut"
5A)this is a nice feature to help feather the slope or sides of a ditch out. being able to enter a offset distance and selecting how many times to offset works great. Believe AGPS generated addition offset cut lines in the side view of the ditch profile that were different colors from bottom of cut.
5B)also nice if your trying to take the tops out of the ditch. otherwise you may end up trying to cut a foot+ deep in some locations
6)A dummy 3 (or more) light tree light (top color red, middle green, bottom light red) to identify blade height in relation to current blade height.
6A)this is a nice visual to identify when driving too fast for the hydraulics to adjust to the depth and speed that's being cut.

Reason: to identify indents.
