      Answer

      The 980 is multiroom. So it will go into every room on the floor. Battery life is longer too. He 980 has carpet boost. So you will hear the auction increase when it senses carpet. If you have a main floor with multiple rooms, get the roomba that has entire floor/multiroom cleaning.

      Answer

      The charging base label says it's rated for input 100-240V at 50/60Hz. The power cable supplied is a standard North American polarized 2-blade plug.

    Can you use one Roomba for upstairs and downstairs, moving the dock? I would think the mapping would be confused. But if it is possible, is it still programmable?   (5 Answers)

      Answer

      I just posted a review which should answer this question. Some rooms will not be cleaned automatically. I moved the dock to those rooms, erased the memory and left it. This should work on any level. One would have to make sure it doesn't fall down the stairs. This is done using an electronic barrier. Two are included. I have not used mine.

        Answer

        It will clean what ever area you want it to clean. We have a 3200 sq foot house and it cleans the bottom floor daily. Sometimes it take 6 hours but it will charge and clean until it is complete

          It did our rough basement floor and did ok. I would guess it would do a garage if not oily or greasy.
