    Roomba switch to the living room?

    I hate our vac. Wife loves it. Fucking thing goes in circles.
    If you buy one get the room mapping feature.

    Sky net will thank you.

    If you want to drive yourself fucking bonkers watch an older Roomba. I couldnít do it.

    The new one does a mapping run first use then it actually cleans in rows.

    I think I need to upgrade to one with mapping.

    My Eufy with "dumb" navigation was fine in my old place. The random turning plus occasional "follow the baseboard mode" actually worked great. Especially if you ran it daily on a timer, it pretty much managed to cover everything. You obviously still need a real deep vacuuming on occasion, but it kept dust and pet/wife hair in line.

    But it really struggles with the layout in our new place. Ends up going to the same places over and over and the way we have arranged furniture creates some traps that it likes to get stuck in.

    Oh, and I now have a second floor with relatively thick wall to wall carpeting. Not sure how to handle that.

    If I bring the robot upstairs, the little front brushes will literally tangle themselves in the carpet and get stuck...If I get a smarter one for the other floor, I guess I could try running the old Eufy upstairs with the dust brushes removed (they probably don't do much on carpet anyways).

    Otherwise the Eufy has been great. Paid $150 for it in 2017, have since replaced the battery once, the brush roller once after it got caught on a piece of metal wire that ripped it up, and lubed the gearbox a couple times to avoid squealing. Oh and the front brushes, but those are meant to be consumable and it even came with multiple sets in the the box.

    We got a Roomba i7 or some such last year. It was fine until it became self aware. As in it became aware all it was is a robotic vacuum and decided to do its own thing. Our dog doesn't like it. One of these days the dog is going to go all Sarah Connor on that thing.

    In terms of cleaning, it does well on hardwood floors. I guess it's okay but not amazing.

    Roomba encountered an immovable object on its job yesterday while I was out.

    Turn off the schedule and just run it manually when needed.

    If that doesnít work go into the settings on the App and reboot or click the factory reset option.

    Donít let a robot control you man!
