28: VL53L1X-ShortRange?

Anyone know what the rangefinder 28: VL53L1X-ShortRange would be?
I have the 16: VL53L1X 17 but if I set 28 arducopter 4.0.5 does not recognize it. Thanks

I’ve used VL53L1X from Sparkfun some time ago and it worked ok in both 16 and 28 modes. I think it was 4.0.3 firmware or earlier.
As I remember mode 28 supposed to provide slightly more stable readings by reducing the max range. But in fact I didn’t noticed a lot of difference outdoor. Both were performing bad because of sensor size.

Strange … 28 in my configuration is not recognized, only 16. Also works badly for me outdoors, I’m waiting for TF-Luna hoping it works better
