With this new Adafruit AR update, you’re able to scan your Raspberry Pi Pico to display an overlay of the boards pinouts and power pins. Here we'll show you how to get started.

To get started:

Before downloading this app, make sure your mobile device is running iOS 14 or greater. 

Download Adafruit AR from the Apple App

Adafruit AR on the App Store

Please note - the Adafruit AR app is currently only available for iOS.

Once you’ve opened the app use the boards scanner mode to start.

With your Raspberry Pi Pico, scan the front of the board. 

Due to the small size of the Raspberry Pi Pico, you’ll need to scan the board a bit closely. Your device should be ideally 3 inches away from board to be recognized. 

For the best practice to scan your board - make sure you are scanning in a well lit area and avoid light glare while scanning.
