      Now that's some weird behavior!!! Mine was very close to the A/C unit when I started it, but I always start it from that spot. I'm thinking the A/C must have kicked on or off and confused it.

      Every once in a while, my robo gets goofy as well.  A few weeks back,
      while on Edge mode, it went about 1/2 way around the perimeter, then
      did a 180, and started edging clockwise.  It went down an incline
      that it normally travels up, and gave the a "start elsewhere" error. 

      Another time, I started edge mode and it went about 5 feet and
      stopped with a "restart elsewhere".  This repeated 4 times at various
      points in the zone.  I skipped edge mode, let it mow, and then went
      back and had it edge.  It did so with no problems.  I have
      succesfully edged that zone 3 or 4 times since then. 

      I have no idea what caused any of this, but it has never prevented me
      from getting that well manacured lawn look, and is occasionally quite
      entertaining.  :-)
