    the reason it sred up towards the end….
    I fell asleep after pressing F5 for 2and a bit hours…
    got nothing :(
    I would love to see a map of where attempts came from, and who was successful. ie, where the money went.
    then another one, overlaying customers that have spent money with sparkfun in the last 12 months
    though I got nothing, I still had fun.
    I will have to use real money though to pay for the bits in my cart :( he he
    thanks sparkfun.

    not correct, on this module, the antenna must be facing forward M0 mounting. <br />
    it is not ideal for gps reception, but seems to work.<br />
    <br />
    the compass relies on this mounting position. <br />

    This unit is Great. It is true Three axis, and even does all the vector calculations for you.<br />
    <br />
    Remember it is an accelerometer, not a gyro, so all of you with grand plans for autonomous flying objects will still need the 9DOF board :)<br />
    <br />
    The antenna must be to the front for the compas to work, so that is a bit of a compromise.<br />
    <br />
    really good unit.

    I have found that when powering the module from a 3.3V source, I can communicate with it, but it will not get a fix, however, when I run it on 5V, the fix is fast and good. (accurate to within 1 or 2 feet)
    The problem is I am using this with a Zigbit module that requires 3.0V (will work at 3.3)and so I do not want to have to have both voltages. any suggestions on how to get this thing to work correctly at 3.3v?
    Thanks
