Setmode for GoPiGo

When the RPi is mounted onto the GoPiGo board, there are some free GPIO pins, 14 of them. If i were to use those and i setmode to BOARD, will i break anything? Will i still be able to control the motors as usual?

Hello Ventin,
I’ll have to get back to you on that. Most of those pins should be available. I need to double check if some are to be avoided.

In the meantime, I would avoid pin 27 & 28, as seen in here:


Hey ventin, I don’t think so. Just to be clear, you’re trying to put a B+, 2 or 3 on the GoPiGo, and then use the GPIO pins that aren’t mating into the female port on the GoPiGo, right? You should be fine using those for other purposes.

The main pins you want to be careful with are the two I2C pins, and the SPI pins.

ok thanks
