Does anyone know about a driver for the Microstrain 3DM-GX3-35 or used the sensor on Linux? This is a Microstrain IMU with an integrated GPS. The protocol for the 3DM-GX3-35 is different from the 3DM-GX3-25 so the microstrain_3dmgx2_imu will not work.

If you are only interested in the IMU part then it is possible to set the sensor to AHRS direct mode. Then it will work with the microstrain_3dmgx2_imu driver.

Hi, I am new to ROS, could you please give me details about how to set the sensor to AHRS direct mode? THanks :)

I would like to know how to do this as well. I have the exact same issue. I'm trying to get IMU data into ROS using the 3DM-GX3-35. The existing GX2 and GX3-45 drivers haven't worked, but I haven't tried AHRS mode.
