I just got a BOLT and tried executing the same commands, however everytime its ran it goes on a slightly differrent expected path. At first i thought it was because i ran it on a carpeted surface. I have now changed it to a wooden floor surface. Its still giving me the same result.
Is this a known issue?
I do not own a bolt, but my guess would be that it is not calibrated. Since it is a ball, it has no way of knowing what direction is forward, thus it requires you to use your device to tell it that.
When you calibrate the BOLT, make sure the device is facing the exact direction you want to drive while adjusting it. Not doing so could make it go off to the side a bit.
