Roomba 980

Postby cardboard » September 28th, 2018, 4:42 pm

Have a Roomba 980 that I can not use with my Samsung Smart phone.
The app on my phone needs my Location.
I do not WISH for ROOMBA to have my location.

I am a private Citizen.

So since I do not wish for it to have my location.


I can not use the Roomba that I spent about 1000.00 on with Bed Bath and Beyond.

I can not operate my roomba.

There should of been on the Box. That if Roomba can't know every piece of imformation about me, I can not use the product I bought

Roomba should give me the money back at once.
Tried talking to them on the phone.

It was a waste of time.

Try going to a different place, setting up the app, enabling location, and then disabling it in your Settings menu on your device. Sometimes, apps only check for location permissions when first installed and set up.

The 980 operates just fine manually.
I don't have a smartphone at all, so I cannot use any apps.
I have used my 980 for almost 2 years entirely manually.
