GPiMate Plus for CM4 Lite



SKU: RGRGPIMATEPLUSCM4V1_B12 Category: Tags: , , , ,



  1. This adapter supports Retroflag GPi CASE.
  2. This adapter supports Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4
    for less configration issue, we suggest that you should just buy “Raspberry Compute Module 4 Lite” (with WiFi or without WiFi are both fine),
    as it would boot from SD card directly. (The other moudle would boot from internal eMMC first)


  1. the USB port on the side is for power inputing only. For regulaor USB device, you must use the USB port on the TOP.
  2. the HDMI plug wont be soldered, any one who need this feature can have that hdmi plug soldered by himself.
  3. there is one FFC connector avaliable on GPiMate Plus for extending the ethernet feature of CM4, you would need that extra board with ethernet plug to work with it. RgR would have it with open souce design as we did for HDMI extension plug for GPiMate CM3 model.
  4. Instructions to config the GPiMate+ with RetroPie 4.71 and later versions.
  5. Please make sure your CM4 is installed in the right direction as below. (The main SoC of CM4 is at the top-center position)
  6. If you have issue to boot from SD card with newer CM4 producted after 2022, you probably have to downgrade the bootloader of it, here is the guide:

Package included:

  1. RgR GPiMate Plus adapter board.

Please be reminded the included postage here is only for standardized airmail parcel. Should you choose other logistic services, such as EMS, to have your parcel dispatched, the additional costs will be borne by the customers.

Please also be kindly noted that due to the nature of air freight, parcels are measured by volumetric weight. It means the bigger/heavier the parcel is, the postage is higher. In this case, should you choose to combine two items to be dispatched together, three will be extra costs for the postage. If you need more information, please send us DM. Thank you for the cooperation.
