RM3100 not working

I wanted to test the new magnetometer RM3100 from Drotek. I’ve read all the threads about it and as far as I understand it should work with 3.7-dev - unfortunately I can’t get it to work, moreover there is no RM3100 checkbox in COMPASS-TYPEMASK parameter.

Any ideas?

The code is there but no board probes for it. You need to add it to the list of probed compasses and recompile.

you can use https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupilot/pull/10581 to have the RM3100 working. You will need to rebase thus.

Ok thank You - took me a while to understand the whole process :wink: What are the chances of merging this driver+probing with the next stable release ?


Hello Julian

I would appreciate if you could share your solution.


The solution should be to use Arducopter 4.0-rc2 or greater

@rokonuddin Do You mean the .apj file or the hardware solution?

Thank you for your response. I have compiled 4.0 but no joy. Not sure why it is not working!
