The HMC5883L is a triple-axis magnetometer compass, which uses I2C for communication.

Compass heading accuracy of 1° to 2°, provided by internal 12-bit ADC (Analog-to-Digital Converter).

Includes on-board voltage regulator, allowing you to power the module with voltages between 3.3V and 6V.

The module includes on-board pull-up resistors on the I2C lines.

There is a data ready pin (pin DRDY) you can use to make your communication with the module more efficient; refer to the datasheet below for details.

Since this module has such great compass heading accuracy, it is great for giving your robot precise navigation abilities.

5 of 5 Works! January 19, 2017
By: Aaron Norris from San Jose, CA  
This little module gives my robot a good sense of direction. In conjunction with the Ultrasonic sensors that Addicore sells I can navigate a small maze with my robot.

5 of 5 I'm gonna use this with my GPS. December 27, 2016
By: Brian C. O'Rourke from WAYNESBORO, VA United States  
Addicore is my new place to look for inexpensive electronic components.  I ordered and my stuff arrived  in no time and I got free shipping with my purchase in excess of $25.
