I recently purchased the r7040 model powerbot. In the user manual it says that when in the middle of a cleaning it will return to the docking station to recharge, and then resume cleaning where it left off if the battery starts to run low. My powerbot will return to docking station to recharge, but never resumes cleaning. If I press the auto button it starts over the whole cleaning cycle over again. In other words there are rooms that never get cleaned. Does anyone know how to fix this?
There have been a couple times that I have had to manually place the bot on the docking station to recharge because it could find it. I didn't know if this also had something to do with the issue?

How do you program a map? The only programming I find is the is the scheduled date/time but no mapping. Am very interested in selecting certain areas which I assume would be mapping as a I have large main level with mostly hardwood floors but some throw carpets.
Do you have the Smart Home app or are you using the Smart Things app?

I have the smart things app. Is this correct for my model? I'm not clear what the mapping will do for me but I would sure like to have more programming ability to select areas and/or rooms for my BOT to clean! Your help is appreciated!
