You should be careful when mounting the GrovePi+ to the Raspberry Pi Model B+ and Model 2.  Both come with a 40 pin header while the GrovePi+ comes with a 26 pin header.   If you mount it incorrectly, it can cause damage to the GrovePi+ and the Raspberry Pi.

The pin on the GPIO header on the GrovePi marked as “1”  should go into the Raspberry Pi header pins on the top left corner, far from the USB ports and the micro USB power connector. Refer the pictures below and make sure that you have connected the GrovePi+ properly before powering it on.
