  • This board/chip is a real disappointing. The data I get from this chip when parallel to the ground is not right. It reads out the Y axis in the Z axis. And each axis has its own scale. Z axis reads from 0 to 512 and X reads from -123 to 173 and the Y axis stays within 280 to 290 when I rotate it around the Z axis. The whole thing is bogus and unreliable. I am going to return it to where I bought it and get another brand. Also the board shows on the schematic that is has the pull up resisters (2.2K) on the SDA and SCL lines. But look at the pictures on the board they are missing! They say nothing about it. The resistors should be right above the 58 markings on the board. Very disappointing!

No public wish lists :(
