    HMC5983 External Compass for Pixhawk. Compatible with APM2.5 or higher.

    This custom made 3-axis digital magnetometer board is based on Honeywell's HMC5983. It is a newer version of our external compass. The high accuracy HMC5983 compass has I2C level converters, filtering and LDOs installed on the board. Board has a 3.3V power regulator so it can be used with both 3.3V applications (APM2.5 or higher) and 5V applications (Pixhawk).
    External compass is always more accurate than internal due to magnetic interference inherent in internal compasses. Installing this compass board further away from the interference source will improve your flight/driving accuracy.
    Pixhawk detects automatically the external compass and starts using it. If using on APM2.5 boards you need to disable the internal compass (see documentation). With APM2.6 board you only need to activate if from MIssion Planner.
