    The Accelerometer values come back in 2’s complement format. So some negative values close to 0 are printed in the 65000 range.
    Thank you Mike and Tim (Sparkfun) for sorting this out for us.

    Found the problem. I had some Symbian software installed and in the Path, these folders were being searched first. I changed the order that the WinARM folder was, in the path, so that it occured at the start and moved the Symbian stuff off my machine.

    Hi There
    I’ve downloaded and installed the WinARM package onto my C Drive, made the necessary changes in the path of the environment variable.
    My operating system is XP, however when I “make all” I get the following error
    the error is:

    “make.exe” all
    Sorry, \epoc32\tools\make.exe is not supported in this release. Please use a different
    device. Use ‘devices’ to view the available devices.
    What do I do ? :-~

    Great idea for a device, really cool kit.
    I have set it up with the battery, uSD card, GPS module. It’s successfully logs the data to the uSD card, however the reading I got from the accelerometer were very strange, the values for 2 of the axes are at about 65534 at the same time, which sounds very wrong, since the device is motionless on my desk.
    Also the GPS readings seem to be a bit off, by about a 1Km roughly.
    The files I recorded with the device are available to examine.
    Have I got a faulty device?

No public wish lists :(
