Woohoo! (to coin a phrase). Check this out:

An abstract for the Planetary Data meeting with a map of Yutu 2's path and other information.

This is the map from the abstract (hopefully considered 'fair use' for educational purposes). It is an excellent illustration of how the rover is driven, not with a 'joystick' controller and live (slow-frame) TV like the Lunokhods, but by mapping a safe route from end-of-drive images like the various Mars rovers. Sites are labelled, so I will be updating the route map soon.

Below, an attempt to match the doughnut track positions to Phil's map. But don't take them as literal, as with most tracks, they all look the same, so open to correction (it all has to do with viewing/estimating the angles between each doughnut track - some approach angles under 90 degrees, others over 90, not to mention the paths taken, where some are straight-like, some curvable).
