Forum category for GrovePi+ is?


I noticed that the “GrovePi” is in the Archived Category which states it is for “retired products”.

Is the GrovePi+ a retired or currently supported product for ModRobotics?


I think it’s “retired” but it’s also still available, and it’s beginning to gain some traction, so I think it (the forum category) should be returned to active status. (IMHO)

It is listed as “OUT OF STOCK” on the DI website, and not mentioned under “Robots We Make” so archived seems like it is correct as far as ModRobotics. I shant be suggesting they contact

It looks like SeeedStudio (and via Amazon, DigiKey, …) is the current source of the boards. Perhaps that should be our first question. If someone is reviving a board they bought in the DI days, we can feel sorry for them, otherwise I’m really not interested in helping new folks because Seeed isn’t supporting them.

I think the category should be locked - read only, and all new GroveP questions should be given the Seeed Studio Grove link (Gotta love a “modulated…tool set”)

and their Raspberry Pi forum:

As much as I respect your opinion, I feel compelled to disagree.

  1. It’s not like we’re overloaded with forum members asking stupid questions.

  2. The GrovePi was a Dexter Industries product and is still being used.  And it’s still co-branded too!
    I also think it would be despicable if we took a product, so heavily Dexter Industries branded, and threw any interested user to the wolves, so to speak - and it’s not abandonware, it’s still in production as far as I can tell.


  1. I wouldn’t consign my worst enemy to Seeed Studio’s (non-existent) support.

  2. I don’t have an objection to being a “Dexter Industries product brand advocate”.  One of the reasons I actually bought the GoPiGo was the welcoming atmosphere of the Dexter Industries forums at the time.  IMHO, we turn away forum users with legitimate questions at our peril.

I would rather welcome any interested Dexter product user with open arms.

What say ye?

They are all yours. I need to marshal my compulsive instincts to help everyone that asks for help.
