GoPiGo with Raspberry Pi A+


#1

Hi,

I’d like to know if the GoPiGo is compatible with the Raspberry Pi A+.

The reason I’m asking is that I see several advantages of the A+:

  1. It’s 22g lighter. How much does the GoPiGo weigh?

  2. It consumes less power (200 mA versus up to 800 mA for the model 2 B). So longer battery life…

  3. It’s cheaper.

Are there any significant disadvantages to using an A+ with GoPiGo?

Thanks!

It will work with the A+. However, the significant advantage of the B+ is that you have multiple USB ports, and you have an ethernet port (making it easier to setup).

But it should work with the A+.
