I am using FW 3.2.0 rc3 on a large skid steer chassis with a genuine pixhawk 1
For GPS I am using a ublox c94-M8P rtk evaluation board. The c94 does not have a built in compass so the heading info is coming from the internal compass of the pixhawk. This seems to be unreliable so I want to disable the internal compass and add a stand alone external compass to the pixhawk.
I am also migrating to a pixhawk 2 in the next few weeks. So I would like solution should be able to work with the pixhawk 2 as well.
I do have a very fancy and expensive standalone compass module from Sparkfun ie the HMC6343. I would love for the pixhawk to use this. It communicates on I2C. Does anyone know if the FW will work with this unit? I do not just want to plug it in an see as it is rather expensive.
If not what is the very best independent compass that I can connect to the I2c buss of the Pixhawk and keep the RTK gps data stream as well
I assume that all compasses will communicate on the I2C buss.
