I cannot get the compass test to work in Mission Planner.
The mag is working in HUD and is enabled etc.
What am I missing? Is this a MP issue, a setup issue, a mode issue, serial, baudrade, a stupid user issue?
Mission Planner 1.2.35 mav 1.0 and ArduPlane V2.70 (ArduPlane V2.69 has same issue) and AP 2..5+ board.
Here is how I reproduce problem:
Connect power via usb, open Mission Planner, after boot finished, connect, etc click on Terminal.
Display on pc shows init Arduplane V2.70 and command list as it should
type test OK get test back
Mission Planner gives no response and hangs. Click Terminal or reboot etc to clear the hang
If I do the same thing as above but...
type setup OK get setup reply
type compass then I get the results of the current compass data => OK
Using the Ardunio IDE (for Version 2.69 Arduplane) and terminal mode for CLI then:
type compass gives the current compass data.... so Arduplane code and AP2.5+ board must be good. but see next..
At one time the "test / compass" actually worked in the Mission planner with V2.70.???? Don't remember the sequence of events. Then it quit working again. Also, at one time I could not get CLI Test / compass it to work in Arduino IDE, CLI
Doing a little debug in IDE when CLI test compass was hanging the call toe compass::init() never returns. (print statements before and after the call)
