Hello, I read the documentation and can’t see where it covers this. I need to connect the hat to the RPI but I can’t mount it due to the PI won’t be near the Navio2 for design reasons. Could someone tell the GPIO that needs to be connected from the PI4 to the Navio2?
This ribbon cable should do the same job as a Navio2 extension header from the package but we have not tested such cables with Navio2. I can’t be sure that the long ribbon cable won’t affect the performance of the board.
All GPIO header pins except GP26 are reserved by Navio2 according to the pinout. However, you can operate the PWM outputs as GPIO as described in this guide.
Hmmm, maybe the Navio2 won’t work for me then. I need the RPI to communicate with other components via the CAN bus protocol and if the navio has almost all of the GPIO reserved then it probably won’t work for my use case.
