    Re: Hi. using the BNO055 orientation sensor and facing big problems in the southern hemisphere

    South Africa and most of South American countries have a fairly weak magnetic field compared to Europe or North America. Nevertheless the BNO055 sensor should work as expected.

    Make sure to avoid ferromagnetic materials around the sensor that could create a shielding effect to the already weak magnetic field.

    Thanks. its working excelent in Europe and in USA. its first time we are using it in south africa and somehow we get 90deg error. so i guess its not a matter of ferromagnetic environment
