Compass Calibration

Calibrating the compass has proved to be more of a challenge then expected because due to a saturation of magnetic fields in our lab building we cannot calibrate it in our lab.

I have another location but with the same results. I'm sending it to one last location for calibration and if we are still encountering magnetic saturation then the problem may be with the compass. The good news is that the roll and pitch measurements are accurate and reliable to +/- 80 degrees.

  1. Great thoughts you got there, believe I may possibly try just some of it throughout my daily life.
