The RIO documentation says, "A set of console commands are available ..." (Top of page 15).

In this context, what is the "console?" The PC utility, the minicom application, or ?

It seems that in order to initialize the RIO, for example to set pulse input mode,
I must send a set of RIO commands either via this "console," via the PC utility, or via my own serial communication program. Is that correct?

The Robonav is the Windows pc utility. The minicom is for when you are using the linux O/S in your case the Raspbian.

If you are using minicom, you should be able to send ?fid and get a response back. That is the same query that is used in the Robonav utility for windows. But to connect to the windows utility, you must be connected via either serial RS232, or the USB.

I understand. I have successfully used minicom to do the ?FID

I will build an RS232 cable to use the PC Utility.

But what does the Datasheet mean when it refers to the "console?"

It is referring to the out databox of the Robonav. If you have used our next gen controllers, the Roborun+ comes with a tab called "Console" This is the area where you can send queries and commands. In the robonav, that is all done in the configuration tab. So the outdata fields are where you send in queries and commands, and the bigger box where it says "in data" is where those commands and queries are echoed back along with the responses.
