When Bob is scheduled to clean, a broom icon will appear on the station's screen, under the word CLK. The time settings will reset to default if Bob’s charging station is disconnected for more than 8 hours. If Bob is scheduled to clean, he will leave his station even if he hasn’t finished charging.
Among the unique features that set Bob apart from other robotic vacuum cleaners is auto-resume mode. Auto-resume enables Bob to get back to work as soon as his battery is fully recharged.
To activate auto-resume mode:
1. Press OK/Cycle on Bob’s charging station. A broom icon and the word GO will light up at the bottom of the station’s screen. This means Bob is on auto-resume and will automatically resume cleaning when his battery reaches full charge.
While the broom icon and GO are lit, Bob leaves his charging station and begins cleaning EVERY TIME his battery is full. Once activated, auto-resume stays in effect until it is turned off by you, or until the charging station is reset after being disconnected for more than 8 hours.
To disable auto-resume mode:
1. Press OK/Cycle once more. The broom icon and GO will disappear.
