Best practices and troubleshooting

  • You will find it increasingly important to keep a careful note of the field position, date and times of establishing recording, particularly if you are using multiple Solos.

  • Remember that the Solo Operating System Image (SOSI) should be flashed onto each memory card before each time that it is inserted into the Solo.

  • Try not to unplug the power cable to the Raspberry Pi unless necessary since it is a fragile connection. Instead, unplug the power cable at the battery end, which is a larger and stronger connection. Ensure that the orientation of the connections is correct.

  • Do not insert or remove the memory card while power is attached.
