I have been using Roomba Status wirelessly alot, and it has been great! I am using it with a 560.
I do have a couple of possible problems I would like to ask about.
1) when the bot is running, I get status updates and indications of the bumpers/battery condition/cliff sensors/etc.
BUT... the virtual wall indication doesn't seem to work. I am using it with the auto VW/LH's (the white ones with the black top, oval shaped).
Only occasionally does the "virtual wall" bar in roombastatus turn red, and it seems to do so when it is NOT seeing a virtual wall. Could this be due to an error receiving the data from the bot occasionally?
I have also noted that every once in a while, the bot acts like it sees a virtual wall when there isn't one around... I don't think this is a roombastatus error though... strange!
and 2) Looking at the distance display in the roomba window, when the bot is traveling forward, the distance shows an increasing negative value. The total distance is positive and is incrementing though. When the bot bumps something, the distance display does reset to zero and starts incrementing negative again. Is this the way the 560 sends travel distance and how roombastatus is decoding the data?
Overall I really like roombastatus and I use it to watch the battery condition as well as determining what the bot is seeing when it is on a mission.
