    Re: BMX160 Magnetometer data not changing

    I had the same issue and after looking at the solution in this thread, I determined that it is necesary to set the register 0x6B to 0x02. Aaccording to the BMI160 manual, thi sets Primary interface: autoconfig / secondary interface: Magnetometer. The BMX160 manual indicates that these bits are reserved.

    Table 16 should have as the first instruction: Write, 0x6B, IF_CONF, 0x02, set secondary interface to Magnetometer

    Actually, in BMX160, the secondary interface is set internally to Magnetometer, regardless of the register value. This register write is unnecessary. I do not know what was the issue in your case, but it must have been somewhere else.
