  • Hi,
    I bought this version in a swedish store a couple of weeks ago. Didn’t have time to test it out until now. My version does have the HMC5843 magnetometer but not the wire fix showed in your pictures, guess it has been sitting in their storage for a while. What is “a trace” and what are the consequences if don’t add the wire? Is this a minor cosmetic error or is the magnetometer output useless? I’m new to this but I’ve hooked it up to a Arduino Uno and get readings from all three sensors. The magnetometer stream plausible values, meaning it reacts properly on movements and doesn’t spit out randomly numbers. What’s your recommendation?

No public wish lists :(
