Updated my D3.
No issues this time, update went smoothly.
Indeed you can toggle the sounds on/off, but why? I see that with the new version of the app, I can now also select "gentle navigation" with the spot clean mode.
But they still did not fix the issue that you cannot schedule a run with "eco" mode. (it will not stick and revert to "Turbo")

Maybe for those who run the bot while sleeping, and don't want to be disturbed by error beeps during the night?

Yes, but after startup beeps the volume is going up.
If you would wake from those beeps then you are definitely going to hear the rest of the operation. But for error beeps they got a point. Those can be consistent thru the night...

I noticed that there is a lot more information in the app when starting a cleaning run. It will now show you which floorplan is recognized. And indeed it is less picky. I could test this because at startup it has a view of two large chairs. If I slightly changed the position of those, it would not recognize the floorplan.
With this firmware I can move one of those around and it still recognize the correct floorplan!
