with a GPS Communications Unit. This is important because if you have one of these GPS-enabled mowers, you can use a new iPhone app called My Automower to tell the mower to mow the lawn for you, even when you’re not home. Apparently, robotic servants are already here.

Using the My Automower app, the mower can be remotely started and stopped, as well as tracked on the iPhone screen. The app also includes installation movies, a buying guide, and FAQs. That GPS Communications Unit, by the way, enables a GPS theft tracker and sends SMS alerts. The app is a free download, and works through simple SMS messages.  You can get location, take control, when to start, when to return for charging, and other automower statuses.

Garden Report 2011, 40 percent of consumers around the world say they don’t have enough time to take care of their homes and gardens. Therefore robotic mowers have been a welcome aid for stressed homeowners. Now it gets even easier with the new iPhone app for Husqvarna Automower®, available for free at App Store.

With the new iPhone app you can mow the lawn without even being at home. Any Automower® robotic lawnmower equipped with a GPS Communication Unit can be remotely started and stopped, as well as being tracked on your iPhone screen. The app also has installation movies, a buying guide and FAQs.

“We all want a well-kept lawn, but few are willing to invest the time needed. With the help of Automower® we made life a little easier for house owners. With the iPhone app we take gardening one step further. With its help you take control of your lawn as easily as making a phone call,” says Stefan Axelsson, Business Development Manager at Husqvarna.

The GPS Communication Unit is available for most of the Automower® range and from 2011 it comes as standard for the 260 ACX model. The GPS Communications Unit also enables GPS theft tracker and SMS alert.
