Though I am in beta, and have it installed and available, and have 4 floors, I have not tested this feature out yet.
Here are my thoughts on things I would hope Multifloor mapping includes or will eventually include:
- Be able to recognize on its own which floor it has been placed on (based on the saved maps) and pull that one up and use it (rather than requiring me each time to pull up the app and manually select which floor I want it to run for). This will make it convenient for everyone in my family to use.
- If someone carries the vacuum to a location and the vacuum does not recognize the location on any of the stored floor maps, then it should not just delete the map that it currently has loaded in order to replace it with a map of what it’s currently doing (this is what it usually does/did when there was only a single floor available, and found itself in a new location).
- if it is on a floor that does not have the charger, then when it is done it should always return to wherever it started.
Again, I am mostly ignorant of this feature as I have not had time to test it yet, other than seeing it had a field where I could select which floor map I wanted it to use, and my first thought was that it would be annoying if I had to use the app to switch this everytime and now my family can’t move it to different floors easily either. So I am hoping that has been accounted for to make it automatic and more useful (sorry if I am just ignorant of the capabilities, as I said, I haven’t personally tested it on mine yet).
