Nice update, but not more. I'm curious if the card functions are also provided for the old model. Otherwise quite interesting for those who do not have Roborock yet.

Think the price will be at the beginning at rather 400 € (on the usual stores), the second generation Roborocks there are now and then already for about 300 €,

Great, I was waiting for that. Costs more than the predecessor, but the room layout is worth the extra cost. I ordered it from Cyberport. I'm curious. Should the days come? Will report if I have him !! LG

200 € more just for the room layout? You can almost get two xiaomi vacuum robots 1. Buy generation. I think that is an impudence for a mere software function to demand such a surcharge. It has otherwise changed as well as nothing to the S5.

Hallo,
has anyone tested whether the S6 recognizes when wiping / mopping when he comes on a rug and he then no longer gives off water?
