  • It appears the schematic (and the example) have the Vdd miss wired. They show Vdd connected to the supply passing through a 1-µF capacitor in series. The data sheet says, "Vdd Supply input (2 to 5.2 V). A 1-µF capacitor is required." As is typical, said capacitor should not be in series, but it is a bypass capacitor to ground.

  • Whew! Found some very nice code at https://github.com/pololu/LSM303/tree/master/LSM303. The first example works well. They also have calibration routines.

  • Where is the latest updated example code for this board?

No public wish lists :(
