I am looking at adding my BerryGPS-IMU to an existing Pi Zero W project. Currently the Pi Zero is powered by battery or external power via an Adafruit PowerBoost 1000C wired up to GPIO pins 2 and 6 (5V and ground).
If I mount the BerryGPS-IMU with the supplied header I can’t connect the power to these pins. I was wondering whether I can simply wire the power into the 5V and gnd pins where they are broken out on the BerryGPS-IMU (top 2 pins on the right).
My other options seem to be to use a stackable header to mount the BerryGPS-IMU and keep the power connected to the 2 and 6 pins (above the BerryGPS-IMU), or change the design completely to power the Pi Zero through the micro-USB port from the USB output of the PowerBoost.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Are you talking about the two pins highlighted in the below image? If “yes”.. then you are okay to use these. This is why we placed them there 🙂

Thanks for the quick response Mark.
Yes, those are the pins I meant. Thanks for the confirmation.
