Protect your car

Before we power on the pi, it is always a good practice to lift up the car. You can use anything handy to put it under the car. In the example below, we are just using a cylinder shape object. It will prevent the car accidentally running away for any reasons.

Power on the Pi

The Pi is powered by the MM1. Use the MM1 switch to power on the pi. Press the MM1 switch to power on the pi

You will see that the Pi will keep blinking. The Pi is booting up and doing some initial configuration. This will take around 3 minutes. Please be patient and do not interrupt the process. When the green indicator stop blinking, the setup is finished.
While you are waiting, proceed to the next step to install the mobile app.
Note: If the pi indicator does not blink, try to flash the SD card (See the troubleshooting section).
