@charlieHustle:
That code looks great. Thanks for posting it.
Before getting the Bosch sensor and testing it, can you relate your experiences with its stability?
I am particularly interested in the heading vector stability if the board is static. In some other systems I have tried, the heading will drift many degrees while static, particularly if there is any change in temperature.

I'm using the sensor for my autonomous rc car. So far the heading seems very stable. It doesn't move at all when the car is still. I'm only calculating heading to within a degree. The sensor is mounted on a vibration damper. I have not used it in any temperature extremes.

Do you have a blog or other place where you have photos/videos of your autonomous car?

+1. I just looked into this sensor and think it may be a great addition to my robot.

$35 each is just over the parts-drawer-filler line and into the because-I-need-one zone.

@mcalsyn - Yeah, but only ~$10 @ mouser, so look for one on a IoT Labs Earth daughter board. I am sure that @justin will add one to your offerings.

Considering I paid over double that for a similar device (CK Mongoose) back in 2011, I'd say its a great price! But definitely not something you buy just to throw in the parts bin. It's amazing how they've basically taken that entire device and crammed it into a single chip. And added steroids!
