  4. Review by Tim - good gear verified purchaser

    I bought this magnetometer to use as an external compass for my APM 2.5 board. I can now place the compass well away from any magnetic interference to get more accurate readings. (Posted on 10/12/2013)

  5. Review by cows - Amazing litte device

    This compass is so small but its real easy to use. Just connect to your arduino board, download the library and thats it.

    I have only perform the basic test and as long as you keep metal items away for it, its great. Will soon be using it to drive an arduino car around the house. (Posted on 19/04/2013)
