How to stop D3 mid cycle

Postby cdogstu99 » May 1st, 2018, 9:44 pm

Hi guys is there a way to stop the D3 in middle of a cleaning and have it send itself back to the dock? I am able to STOP but it just stops where it is and doesn’t return. Any ideas?

The robot must have "seen" the dock before it is able to go back to it. Press "pause" in the app, the "dock" button is greyed out if the robot hasn't seen the dock yet. There is no option to make the robot look around for the dock and dock itself.

During a mission the Neato makes a map. I think it can get back to the dock without seeing the dock. When my Neato gets low on power it makes it back regardless of what room it is in. The Neato does need to see it to dock correctly line up.
