Larger maximum playspace size
I just tried setting up Quest in my backyard, and having a massive playspace with no wires is amazing! Unfortunately I'm only able to use about half of my backyard because Quest won't let me draw a larger boundary than that, and I don't really want to turn off Guardian entirely for fear of running into things.
Please increase the maximum Guardian size so I can make better use of this larger space.

I had access to an empty gymnasium, but I couldn't use all the space. That would have been amazing! Is it a hardware issue with the range of the cameras ability to measure parallax? There should be someway around it.
If you enable developer mode you can completely disable the guardian in settings.

Yes please!!! People keep saying “don’t use it outside! Sunlight!” but larger play areas aren’t just outside, we have larger internal areas too - ones that are too large for the existing Guardian.
Please let us increase the play area size :)

When I use it outside, I put it on and put a hoodie up, so all the sun does not go inside the headset,
I never take it off unless I am back indoors.

Don’t take your quest outside! It even says that on the warning.
Don't use your Quest outside!
This exactly. I have a couple of ice hockey rinks next to my apartment which go unused in the summer. I want to create a play area the size of an ice hockey rink. At the very least, allow eliminating the size limit for the guardian when developer mode is enabled.
For every Quest owners who have the possibility to play in large open space, the actual guardian size is very limited.
For an open world game type a larger play area would be so much valuable.
Even games that tend to be contained within a room actually needs more space that available in the current guardian system.
If a larger guardian size may consume more CPU may be a combination of several guardians with a fast and smooth and invisible switch may do the trick?

I would love to see Quest support a space like an indoor basketball court. Playing Robo Recall with that much space would be amazing!

If you remove that headset with your back to the sunlight, you can kiss that display goodbye. It will burn it like an ant under a magnifying glass. Happened to my first Rift, I ended up with a big purple spot.
It'd have to be for huge indoor spaces only, and getting the Quest to "recognize" more area may start to load the CPU more.
Also, you can turn the guardian off entirely if you turn on developer mode.
