The "perimeter memory" or "learn edge" on RL800 is related only to
"edging" - you can program the length of edging - 1-2 or perhaps even 3+
lapses to mow the edge of your perimeter.
When the mower inside the perimeter it doesn't have a memory. It mows in
random fashion, only using sensor and the wire as a guide. It will go left
and then when it reaches the left edge of the lawn it will go either right
or turn around and goes vertically. There is no "memory" for the inside of
the perimeter. So, if you stop the mower inside, to restart it and
*NOT*START EDGING AGAIN BUT RATHER CONTINUE MOWING INSIDE, hit the green GO
button twice - it will ask you to skip edge.
I don't know if it has a memory left after it stops on edging, perhaps it's
all wiped out and you have to start again. I don't know. Perhpas, someone
