  • This is a great little laser. Any chance of adding it to the SparkFun Eagle Libraries?

  • Does anyone know whether the magnetometer will still work properly if the IMU is tilted at 90 degrees (or even more) from vertical? I would like to put an IMU in a belt buckle…

  • Let me add another warning not to become a casualty of the datasheet. If you hook up the sensor backwards (red wire to input and black wire to +12V) - an easy error to make because the plastic connector in the image is in the “wrong” orientation – it will not only fail to work properly… it will die with a little puff of black smoke and the smell of fried circuitry. $10 down the drain. Read the Bildr tutorial before attempting to hook up the sensor.
