New kits - different arcade button

Just in case it helps anyone else. I recently bought an AIY kit and the pushbutton switch doesn't match the one in the supplied book or online instructions. The good news is it matches the one in MagPi issue 57, so if you are struggling to match the wiring, have a look in the magazine.

Re: Can Raspberry Pi 3 Model B or Zero W be sold in Australia?

3B is documented here https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentati ... formity.md I can't help on the Zero, but it maybe a case of the webpage not having been updated with the appropriate document.

There is supposed to be interoperability with the US GPS system, but this will depend on firmware / software supporting both systems. It's also worth noting that GNSS (Galileo) is only in IOC (Initial Operati...

Depends if you are looking to build something or buy something, the MoPi (https://pi.gate.ac.uk/pages/mopi.html) does what you are looking for, as a ready built solution.
