Release 38.7

We've just released version 38.7.

Changes

  • The robot will remember where it has cleaned previously, in order to optimize its cleaning pattern, try again to reach any areas it missed, and to return to its charger, if started from some other position
  • Fixed a problem which prevented some brands of mobile phones from connecting to the robot
  • Improvements have been made to battery management, to reduce the likelihood of the robot running out of power on the way back to the charger
  • General stability improvements
  • Docking with the charger is smoother

Comments

  • Really doesn't seem to have made any difference to its operation. Mine still gets lost on the way back to the base and runs out of power, thus never every restarting cleaning from where it stopped. Keeps going over the same area again and again. When it is returning it actually tries to get further away from the docking station.

    Only had the damn thing 2 weeks and it hasn't worked well more than twice.

  • The 38.7 is very very bad, and I want a downgrade function in my app immediately!!

  • Completely lost on floor, can't use my robot anymore... If there's no second update or downgrade (better solution), I've to send it back

  • Downgrade isn't possible. Give it a few weeks. It always gets better. try a reset too

    @oddangryshot, do you have a lot of carpets? That could lead to the robot getting confused.

    @DeLol, as mrmegadeth wrote, you cannot downgrade the robot. The first video does look weird - not sure what the robot is doing. Maybe the high gloss floor is causing reflections, making the robot think there are obstacles all around it.

    The second video is not as weird. Probably it saw a "ghost" obstacle, which it is trying to circle. After that it's transporting somewhere (albeit taking a bit of a round-about path).

  • @raahlb yes, it seems that the robot has problems with the gloss floor, I've played around with it, and it seems that the cleaning pattern is improving with dimmed light (@ evening/night).
    But this didn't happened with the 36 fw

    @DeLol, hm, we should have not changed that part. Interesting!

  • I've noticed that on very sunny days the bot is a bit misbehaving. On cloudy days it's better.

    My guess was scattering of the infrared lasers.

    DeLol, change of weather? Close the blinds and see if it's better.

  • Hmmmmm, today the app absolutely will not connect to the bot.

    Yes, sunlight often messes up the robot's cleaning, making it see non-existing obstacles.
