Operation of ECO and TURBO modes on the robot control panel and the Neato app:

ECO/TURBO operation using the Robot Control Panel:

  • The default cleaning mode is TURBO for all House and Spot cleanings started on the robot – either the House/Spot buttons or the LCD.
  • To change the default setting for all cleanings started on the robot, go to the Home screen, press SELECT > Main Menu > Cleaning > and check or uncheck the ECO checkbox. If this box is checked, when you use the robot control panel the default cleaning mode is ECO.
  •  For all Scheduled cleanings, you can choose TURBO or ECO mode.

ECO/TURBO operation using the Neato app:

  •  The default cleaning mode for cleanings started on the Neato app is TURBO. You cannot change this default.
  •  For individual cleanings, before you start, you can use cleaning settings to change from TURBO to ECO.
