    Hi. I'm sure this is somewhere in the forum but I can't find it...

    Can anyone tell me what the compass raw values should be (or the lower and upper ranges for x y z and mod?

    It used to be available on a you tube video but it has been deleted.

    Thanks for your help

    When you hook up to the P2 Assistant there's a 'bubble' with a "?" in the 'Tools" section.
    If you hover over it it will display the nominal values for that and all the IMU data..

    Compass values will vary somewhat: X127 Y-356 Z360 MOD1390 So if you have a mod above say 1600 the compass may be magnetized so watch this video.

    If you think about it that info isn't of much use unless you a speaker magnet right under you table. And how many take their computers with them in the field?

    Copy the URL and save it as you never know when you or someone else may need it as it's hard to find
