3. Orientation#

When installing the AutoPi, always make sure that your device faces upwards. The logo needs to face away from the sky, due to the GPS antenna in the AutoPi Mini, otherwise there is a chance you won’t have a good GPS signal.

4. Relocator cable#

If the port is located in an inconvenient place or is in the way of your legs, you can purchase a relocator cable for your AutoPi to keep it in more convenient area. You can also place it in an holder or purchase a velcro strip to secure it on the side or underneath the dashboard, just remember that the logo needs to face downwards.

This is the relocator cable: - Relocator cable
