Thingy:52 MPU Support

  • Has anyone had any luck with accel and gyro on the MPU9250?

    I recently purchased a handful of Thingy:52 for a simple IoT demonstration at an upcoming conference. I learned rather quickly that the MPU is not fully supported when I began development and read the Thingy library comments - "MPU9250 support - the library at the moment only works for the magnetometer"

    Since I am already committed to using the Thingy:52 for my demonstration, does anyone have any advice (or direction) on what needs to be added to the Thingy or MPU9250 libraries in order to add accel and gyro MPU support? I'm short on time so I'd rather not start down a rabbit hole if someone already has experience with this.

    Thank you

  • It should work fine. I just connected to a Thingy, did Thingy.onMPU(print) and all the values I get seem good.

    The TODO comments in Thingy.js were just left over from development (I've just removed them) - those issues were all fixed before support got announced :)

  • Hi Gordon,

    That's good to know on the comments and thanks for the prompt response on this.

    Thank you,
