Hoping tomorrow to head out for my first Rover test with MP

I cant seem to find any type of user manual for MP.  Does one exist.

Lots of things are not directly intuitive for me.  

On the Flight plan screen:

What is Tracker Home?  What is that used for?

I am using a 4 wheeled rover....why is the ALT at a default of 100 and does it matter to me?

On the Flight Data screen:

There does not seem to be any button such as "start mission" ?  How do I get the mission started?

What is DistToMAV?  

When I am done what is the best way to safely power down?  Should I press disconnect communications before powering down the PIxhawk?  For the Pixhawk just pull the power plug? Should I push that red flashing button on the pixhawk ever?   I only ask because my sim card has become corrupted once already.  

Thanks for any tips..hope all goes well tomorrow.

Also:

Where can I find info on the flight modes and how does a person select a different flight mode?

Thanks!

thanks much...that info helps a bit at least on setting up better waypoints.  

I cannot find any info on the Flight Modes and how to know what mode you are currently in and how to switch to different mode.  

Thanks
