I2C sensor not recognized
#1
Hi,

it's me again. So my project is making progress, i just got a load of sensors. Temp/pressure sensor is picked up fine, but my compass chip (GY-271) doesn't show up. 

It is recognized by the i2cdetect and the chip is not bricked (arduino port scanner finds it) but I don't know how to proceed. Any pointers? Or is it just not regocnized atm?

you cannot get heading with just a compass sensor, you need a gyro and an accel (IMU).
IMUs are managed by openplotter-pypilot app and it will work only for the models supported by this library: https://github.com/openplotter/RTIMULib2
At this moment we recommend MPU-9250 and MPU-9255

Ook, so I acquired an mpu 9250 sensor. It doesn't add itself automatically through I2C interface. What do I need to do too get it working? It is detected in Pypilot's automatic sensor sniffing, but there isn't any luck for me in I2C. 

I hate to be the one always asking simple questions, but bear with me. When I learn, I can help the others.

this thread should probably be combined with https://forum.openmarine.net/showthread.php?tid=2876

@ sailoog : could you please publish an update on which sensors are supported - planned to be supported - thanks
