GoPiGo and Raspberry B+ - pins don't match


#1

I purchased the GoPiGo Robot Kit for Raspberry Pi, from Amazon, to go with my Raspberry Pi B+. Assembly seemed fine until trying to install the Pi B+ board onto the GoPiGo. The number of pins to attach to the GoPiGo does not match the number of holes on the PI B+ board. ???

Hey Tim,

Karan’s right. We use a smaller number of pins to make sure that the baord fits with the older version of Pi.

Here’s another picture of lining up the GoPiGo board and the Pi2/B+ http://www.dexterindustries.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/IMG_1772.jpg
