Gopigo 3 stop button does not work

Helping my son get into a gopigo3. Assembled it. strated it up. connects to both pc and smartphone. drives when asked to drive. but does not stop when asked to stop. does not drive straight either, but does seem to make the right and left turns when asked to by braking on one wheel. On this forum if ind one-two posts indicating similar issues and subsequentially getting back saying ‘solved’. as if by magic :-). not so in my case. problem persists. and no clue what to do.
I tried getting into basic manuals (on the home page of this forum) but for some reason all links that dexter provides are not coming through on internet. And I am not it-savvy enough to try and see if I can program something to correct the issue.
By the way. We have the dexteros version 2.5. I downloaded the 3.0 also but did not get that one to boot up completely. so I stayed with the 2.5.

Hi @llmulekom,

I’m sorry to hear that your GoPiGo is misbehaving! A lot of the GoPiGo links on pages are not up-to-date. Please jump on for GPG documentation and getting started help.

I would also try calibrating the motors to see if that straightens its driving. If problems persist please send us an email with your details to
