    how to get magnetic north with BMM150

    Hello

    I want to get the magnetic and true north.

    Could you tell me how do I get it using the microtesla from the bmm150 API?

     

    Thanks,

    Hello Caps,

    You could refer BMM150 sensor API and example in github.

    Hello Robbin,

     

    Thanks for your reply.

    In the example code, it only gets the "micro tesla[uT]".

    I guess you don't provide the example code for getting north data. Am I correct?

    Hello Caps,

    You could see BMM150 output raw data and this is orientation of sensing axes from data sheet.
    For north data, it needs special fusion algorithm processing based on raw data, such as the algorithm supporting 9doF output.
