Got the robot vacuum this week, have been doing some testing and am finding it is better than expected, a very awesome product for the price. One concern I have, though, is that I don’t see any mechanism for managing multiple maps.
Our house is two floors, and I would like to develop maps for each floor, so I can carry the robot upstairs and have it perform well, and not lose any mapping and virtual walls I have set up downstairs.
What I’m seeing is, apparently-- if I develop a map downstairs and then run the vacuum upstairs, it assume it is using the downstairs map, and tries to revise it. For best performance, I need to discard the map and let it start from scratch. Not sure if it would do something different on its own if I waited long enough and let it figure it out. The documentation in this regard is rather vague and undeveloped.
