As the title says, I simply can’t fit the uart cable that came with my telemetry module to the navio2 port. I know Caleb mentions in his video that it is a snug fit, but I’m really struggling with it. Here’s an image of how it fits.
The most likely answer is that I’m not pushing it hard enough, but I’m reluctant to force it for 2 reasons:
- Here’s one guy saying he broke the uart port on his navio2 board while pushing a cable.
- The connector is tiny, not a large surface to put force on, so whenever I try, I seem to end up pulling the cables a bit. Don’t want to fracture them internally or rip them.
So, my question here is: How did you guys manage to plug it in? Any techniques/tools/suggestions on how to get it to work? One of the things I tried is to sand off the connector ever so slightly to help the fit. It actually helped a little, although my connector looks kinda rough now. The problem is, the connector simply seems to be too wide for the port.
Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
