        • In A Cluttered Room

        Comments about iRobot Remote Control:

        In 2 attempts of use it was mastered. It turns on at over 14 feet. It follows all commands instantly.
        It took the second attempt to realize that the turn button must be held down continuously for Roomba to keep moving. Use your thumb for forward arrow and just roll thumb slightly to left or right to make Roomba turn while in motion. I think the people having trouble don't realize the turn button must be held down on the arrow desired to keep Roomba moving! If you select SPOT the Roomba will spiral clean without holding any button but if you press and hold any arrow the Roomba returns to your remote control!

        Could Be Useful In Certain Situations

        By Brian

        from Raleigh, NC

        About Me Tech Savvy

        Verified Reviewer

        Pros

          Cons

          • Requires Line of Sight

          Best Uses

          • To Start Roomba Remotely

          Comments about iRobot Remote Control:

          The remote has some flaws, but works for us. We use it on our Roomba 530 to kick off a clean from upstairs without having to walk to the Roomba (does require line of sight). Biggest negative is it takes a long time or multiple button presses to activate Roomba. I don't see any value in the other functions of the remote such as steering.

                Comments about iRobot Remote Control:

                Works as advertised. Nice for spot cleaning areas that need more attention.

                Very conveniant when I do not need an entire room swept.

                  Cons

                  • Poor range

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about iRobot Remote Control:

                    poor range (8-10 ft)
                    only works line-of-sight
                    must hold down buttons for one second or more

                    unless you have a medical condition which prevents you from being able to bend over to push buttons on/pick up the robot, you should save your money...

                    Pros

                    • Not overly bulky

                    Cons

                    • Buttons often dont work
                    • Only has a range of 8 ft
                    • Only works line-of-sight

                    Best Uses

                    • Expensive paper weight

                    Comments about iRobot Remote Control:

                    I had high hopes for this remote, but it really isn't useful. Its just not practical to have to walk right behind the roomba to stear it with the remote. I'll be returning it... you should save your money.
