Compass and Tilt

Compass and Tilt
Cool! So the compass and g force sensor are working. I've got them returning good data and happy to report that both run on 3.3V.

I briefly explored running the compass off of a pin so I can shut it off. Luckily, it has a shutdown mechanism that seems to work pretty well.

The screen shows the compass heading and detects a tilt in the four directions. It's actually fun to play with.
