  • I think the X and Y arrows are backwards? When it sits flat (Z pointing up), I get roughly +1 g on the Z axis (according to the MMA8542Q Arduino library's getCalculatedX functions). When I flip it so the Y arrow on the breakout board points up, Z goes to zero but Y goes to -1 g, not +1 g. Comparing the datasheet to the picture above, it also looks like X and Y are defined backwards.

    Obviously the simplest thing in the world to correct for. It just took me a little head-scratching trying to figure out what I did wrong. I don't see any comments about it, though, so worth a double-check.

No public wish lists :(
