The first thing that you need to do is make sure that the power station of your cleaning machine is connected to an uninterrupted power supply.

If it is not the case, and its battery dies down in the middle of remapping, you will have to do everything from scratch when it restarts.

Moreover, Roomba will use the stations as the reference point and will always start its route from there.

During the remapping process, it will need to come to the reference point again and again to carry out the procedure.

Step 2: Install the Roomba Home App
