I have no idea. I don't use it since it isn't necessary. I use the ISOGG database at https://isogg.org/tree/ISOGG_YDNA_SNP_Index.html and the Ybrowse database at http://ybrowse.org/gbrowse2/gff/

For example, both of them show M4254 to be at position 21541514 and the mutation is T to A. If you look at your raw data file you will see that 21541514 is not there. So it wouldn't do you any good to have the ability to use the Isogg tree add on. If you look up the position and mutations of P277 and U209 you will see that they are positions 15579215 and 17294958 and that you have the derived alleles. If you look at the Morley predictor results you will see that they are green. The SNPs without a colored background aren't in your raw data file.

If you really want to know your most downstream SNP you need to get Y-DNA SNP testing at FTDNA. Preferably through BigY. Until then, even with LivingDNA testing you will be stuck on an SNP that can be found at https://www.yfull.com/tree/E-M4254/ and but you will have a lot of downstream SNPs that you don't know if you are positive or negative for.

My livingDNA is Z60, ftDNA has come in at I-M253.

FTDNA I-M253(I1)usually is just a predicted Basic Haplogroup based off of ones first 12 STR markers, no actual SNP testing.
STR tests only test STRs, no SNPs tested unless they can not predict with 100% confidence your Basic Haplogroup (SNP Assurance program)
At FTDNA one has to do SNP testing in order to get a non predicted basic Haplogroup.

I-Z60 (I1a2a1a1)will be due to SNP testing by LivingDNA

FTDNA SNP Assurance (on all STR tests)

If you were to take advantage of the BigY sale then when you get the BigY results you will get a Y-DNA report more complete than 23andme and FTDNA SNP packs or the predicted SNP you got from an STR test.

Thanks for the replies. As a result, I have ordered the ftDNA suggested I1 - M253 SNP Pack.

I'll look into the BigY next year.
