That's perfect

Bought mine a while back as backup for about R450

Link in thread above

For anyone wondering about that link:


I bought this one and works great

For the hair I take my pocket knife and cut the hair loose and then pull it out

So there was a update

I can now merge and split my map into more or less areas

My consumables all show 0% left all off sudden as well

Updated my 1C this morning, firmware version 3.5.8_1110.

Consumables still show 90-85% left and I was able to split a large room into two separate areas.

Also, my Mop PRO has been stuck on FW version 3.5.3_0017 for some time now.

You guys with update problems running some Geo Location based firewalls?

I had a jolly good time struggling to pair a door bell recently only to figure out after many hours I was blocking all things Chinese on my firewall.

Show me a screenshot of your map management. My firmware also updated but I do not have additional functionality. I have an office and bedroom as one area. Screenshot_20210818-150819_Mi Home.jpg

What's better the Xiaomi or the Irobot Roomba 698? Both at Takealot at similar prices

I managed to split the bedroom and office into two areas after the latest firmware update.

Well even though my mop pro is stuck on 3.5.3_0017 I have had 0 issues splitting areas, renaming, anding virtual walls etc. So maybe that is why its not updating.

I don't block china with a firewall...but I do have lots of dns blocking using adguard home. Could be that too maybe.

Is there any setting that can stop a vaccum-mop Pro from climbing anything?

I've got some chairs where it will get stuck climbing and I'd rather not move it just for it do its first clean/map setup as I'm sure the same will happen once the map is set.

I have been struggling with my vaccuum for months now. After about 30 cleans, it only ever docked itself twice meaning it never created a map. It would also take far too long to clean. Would run out of battery before clean finished and try dock...
this new firmware 3.5.8_1110 made my vacuum go full mental. Would go forward 0.5m then reverse immediately until it rammed into something then started spinning in circles like crazy. I managed to fix it by following this reddit thread.

-removing device from APP
-factory resetting
-changing app region to China Mainland
-adding device to mi app and doing a firmware update too 4.1.8_1118
-removing the device from app
-factory reset.
-set region back to South Africa
-adding to app.

The device has now done two successful cleans (much faster than normal) and docked perfectly!

Have not looked up what difference the 3.5.8_1110 SA version vs the 4.1.8_1118 Chinese version has. I am just glad to see my vacuum finally work
