Suggestion: Yard Map for PC

My app for Android phone allows you to map your zones and sprinkler heads however, it is not available when using a PC. Why not make it available for both? It would be much easier to map the zones on a large PC monitor using a mouse vs. 6 inch phone screen and my finger.

I just bought the Rachio to use this feature and very sad to see it doesnt work well at all on Android. Doesnt zoom in enough, often doesnt put heads or area points where we need/want, etc. From what I can tell it barely works.

I will say that it is a little fiddly on a small screen such as a phone (iPhone X). Viewing on a phone is no problem, but making changes takes… patience.

5-6" phone screens simply do not work because Rachio doesn’t allow us to zoom in enough. Placing sprinklers on the screen simply doesnt work half of the time and outlining zones is completely impossible for small areas like gardens, tree strips near the street, etc. There are many problems with the current UI for mapping, I gave up and hope they make it usable. Seems like they didnt test this much or at all on a phone. They probably did it on a 24" screen using an emulator so, no problem there! :wink:

Where is this option in the iPhone app? I don’t see any mapping option.

To begin with, I think it’s only available for users of the 12-zone costco version of the rachio 3. I have a regular 16 zone straight from rachio store and don’t have access to the yard map either, so I can’t be of any more help :stuck_out_tongue:

Darn! That sounds like a great feature. I only have the 8 zone controller, so maybe I’ll never get it. We’ll see :slight_smile:

And I really should have gotten the 12 zone costco one, as I have 12 zones!, but I didn’t know it existed until after I already got the larger one from the rachio store…
