Yes this. And maybe there’s a way to update/add to the saved map. My vacuum tends to map half of the house then starts vacuum, drains all the battery and then next time it goes out it maps another half of the house. Afterwards the app will ask if i want to save the new map and it overrides the existing rooms. This results in only half of my rooms gets mapped correctly.
One thing I may try is to delete the map, tell it to clean. When it comes back and charges and get a to 60%, just pause it until a convenient time to run. I foresee this taking a few days given being home during covid and how noisy this thing is. You can’t stop it, or push it back on the charger when it leaves after it gets to 60%. I’m hoping pausing will work.
My test didn’t work. I deleted the map and sent it on it’s way. It began to re-build out the map. I paused it before it needed to charge (people were in the room and we didn’t want the noise at this time), and about an hour later it turned itself off saying the battery was low. When I turned it on, it didn’t have any saved map info and started building the map again. So much for trying to pause it in an attempt to use the “first” cleaning to map out the home, and have that cleaning span multiple charge cycles.
This is exactly what happened to me this morning. I had a saved map from the night before so scheduled it to clean “Room 3” this morning. I had done the same thing the day before that and didn’t have any issues. This morning when it was done I got prompted to save the map even though it was running a scheduled clean on a room on the already saved map. When I did this it completely changed the map and all the room names. So frustrating. How could this have passed by beta with so many mapping issues?
We are the beta testers. I’ve seen zero interest from Wyze on being helpful or providing guidence on these issues so, sadly, I’m putting this thing on the charger and going back to my “dumb” deebot until they work out these kinks. At least I can control it with an API, it cleans, it’s quiet and eventually comes home.
I don’t mind it not being feature rich out the door but I am a tad disappointed about the mapping issues as they are today. It’s not unusable but it surely is frustrating to have to monitor it daily to see what happened each time it runs.
Would be nice to have the ability to save scanned rooms and then access them at a future time. For example, after mapping out a bedroom, being able to save it, name it, and then next time that room is vacuumed you can pull it up so that the vacuum already knows where it is.
When the robot vac has updates to a map, I think it would be useful to be able to preview the new map before replacing the existing one. It can take some time to get an accurate map and losing it for a worse map is not fun.
Alternatively, a map history should be saved so that we can undo/revert to a previous map.
Please add ability to store and manipulate multiple maps, currently limited to only 1 map. This is necessary for people like me who have multi-story house.
I finally got a great map of my entire house. I walled off some areas, like my beds and kitchen island, to keep the vacuum from going under. I tested the commands to vacuum individual rooms. I’m very satisfied.
I want to be able to save that map! I have had maps disappear or become corrupted before. I do not want to start from Ground Zero. Thanks.
Hi - I’d like to request the ability to save and restore maps (whether to smartphone, cloud account, etc.) and also the ability to direct and/or add rooms to maps.
Also would love the ability to remote control the vacuum to get to a particular area and let it clean - specify a “messy area” or even map a requested path, like a heavy use walk area that should get cleaned more than other areas.
I’d like to also direct the vacuum to map additional contiguous areas.
“Corridor Mode” could allow the robot to clean an office, for example, and skip the cubicles which could have stacks or wires.
those are my .02 - thanks!

+1 to this - I’d like to at least be able to revert to the previous version of the map. I hit the exact same issue as OP where the vacuum got confused about it’s orientation and now I have a bunch of imaginary walls running at 45° angles throughout my house. My previous map was perfect and now I have to reset it and re-create all the no-go zones
I would love to be able to save a map so that if it ever gets corrupted, we could revert back to a perfect version.
Today, I moved a sofa that was used as a divider point between two rooms in Wyze Robot. This made the robot freak out and totally messed up the whole map. It moved the whole room more towards the bottom of the map space, messing up everything else with it. I had to reset the map. But that takes a lot of time to set up when you take into account the setting up of no-go zones and dividing the different rooms. I think a solution to this would be to have the feature where you can have the robot just “remember” a previously used map. For example, I could just have made the robot “pull” the map it used yesterday before I moved the sofa today (I moved the sofa back to the original place). What do you all think?
I wish! Another way to say this might be that it would be advantageous to have a DEFAULT map, or several, that you could choose in case of a mess up. I am hesitant to remap sometimes because I don’t want to lose the almost-perfect one that I already have.
Please add the ability to save and restore additional Maps.
I have a house where one room has a threshold which The Vacuum cannot cross in the return Direction. It would be nice to be able to clean that area I just having a second map I could select when I want that room to be cleaned. Also it would be handy to be able to do the same in my entry area without having to reset the map completely and lose all of the no go zones what’s where to find for my main floor.
Reusable Map Option
I frequently relocation my robot-vacuum from upstairs / downstairs and have to reset and remap and set no go zones every time.
Option to reuse map would be useful
Create Zones that include multiple rooms and schedule selected zone get cleaned more often
I would like to see Wyze create Zones that enable users to include multiple rooms and schedule selected zone get cleaned by preference . This will allow uses to schedule one zone. For example one zone may include the living room and hallway that users might want get cleaned more often; say every day. Another zone can then be created that might include bedrooms that you may want to only vacuum every other day or so. In short this will allow users to prioritize parts of the hose for more or less vacuuming based on need or personal preferences.

Save/download map in App/Cloud
I have had to get the Robot Vacuum replaced a few times now, and I was wondering if it would be possible to save or download the map from my original vacuum so that when I get the vacuum replaced, I don’t have to remap my house again.
The map could either be downloaded to my device and I upload it when I set up the new vacuum on my device. Or I could save the map to my account/cloud and then it would be there to download onto the new vacuum when I set it up with my existing account.
