The necessary requirements which must be followed for correct NavQ+ operation as the Create3 compute board:
The USB/BLE toggle on the Create3 adapter board must be switched to USB mode. The toggle switch is directly accessible when the face plate is removed. Alternatively, the adapter board can be pulled off from the Create3 when the cargo bay is removed.
The NavQ+ USB-C port #2 (the one close to the middle) is connected to the USB-C port on the adapter board. WARNING: The USB cable must support 3A supply current.
NOTE: It’s may also be beneficial to additionally connect the unregulated battery port on the adapter board to the dedicated NavQ+ power input (PWR IN) .
