Since the launch of the Neato Botvac D Connected series, Neato has been researching many ways to improve their designs, technologies, and performance. With the upcoming release of the Neato Botvac D7, Neato has stricken again with the new Coverage Maps technologies for the Botvac D3 and D5 models.What was once only on the flagship Botvac Connected, is now available on all D Connected models.
After trying the robot and the application at RobotShop, we have to say that the Mapping Coverage technology is very accurate. Owners will now be able to access the cleaning summary screen, which displays their cleaning Coverage Maps and showcases their cleaning history and statistics. This update will allow users to view the vacuumed area, as well as, obstacles which prevented the robot from going to some places yet easy to access.
As you can see on the screenshots above and below, the app now features detailed insights on the cleaning performances and coverage of your robot. You can see how much space has been cleaned, and how fast it has been.
This latest feature is available as a free update for the Neato App in the App Store and Google Play. This new version was launched at IFA 2017 and offers a modern user interface, additional alerts, and an improved cleaning summary with Coverage Maps and statistics. Neato’s Connected series also supports Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Apple Watch, the Neato Chatbot for Facebook, and IFTTT.
