Before I ask this, I have plenty of Electronics Experience (Engineer) in Electronics (For those who don't know me), and plenty of experience with the BS2 and many Parallax products.·
However, I have zero
experience with the Compass AppMod, and while I haven't tried to run any code for it yet, in simply plugging it into a BOE-Bot, I am left with a puzzling question...
The AppMod header on the BOE-Bot faces backward.·
Thus plugging the Compass AppMod in has everything reading backwards.·
This is of course just plugging it in and powering it up.·
It appears to function as a normal Compass in this mode, with the exception of it being backward.·
Is this a normal function?·
Obviously in code I could compensate for this, but I thought maybe there was a command to "flip" the readings without decoding them different.
Also, I think (based on observation) that the direction is off just a little, but this particular unit has glue holding the adjustment screw in place.·
Is the glue normally there?·
I'd love to start using this Compass AppMod.
